HERE’S THE SCOOP…
UNIQUE GIFTS AND ONE-OF-A-KIND, GORGEOUS FRAMES IN SOUTH GLASTONBURY
There is a beautiful little fine art gallery in South Glastonbury that is off the beaten path, but worth the trip. The items featured at JW Frame Crafters Fine Art Gallery are one-of-a-kind pieces from local artists. Who doesn't LOVE LOCAL? We sure do. There are brightly colored, oil-based barn paintings from Ken Dorros who lives down the road from the gallery; stunning, distinctive pottery adorned with crafty scenes; and gift items you won't find anywhere else. Next Sunday, the 20th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, they will host an OPEN HOUSE for one of their new artists, Kirsten Fischler. Her work is quite interesting...she transforms recycled wood into gorgeous pieces of art using geometric designs and a combination of colored pencils, paint, and lacquer.
Out front is the JW Frame Crafters frame shop where their name is reflective of what they do: hand-"craft" custom, quality frames that are stunningly beautiful (TRUE "craft"manship). See for yourself when you visit and tell them we sent you!
SQUARE PEG OPENS FRIDAY
We are so excited to announce that Square Peg Pizzeria will open to the public this FRIDAY, October 18th at 4:00 PM! Their menu includes two pizzas: Wood-fired and Sicilian Deep Dish, calzones, a selection of fresh pastas made in-house, five different salads, and sandwiches. There will also be table-side prosciutto sliced fresh right in front of you. COCKTAILS have been created by Tim Cabral, the owner of Ordinary in New Haven, which was recently rated in the TOP 100 best bars IN. THE. WORLD. by Conde Naste Traveler magazine. WINES are curated by the same sommelier (Tim Ratchford) from Millwright's Restaurant in Simsbury, which was recently rated TOP 100 by Wine Enthusiast magazine. BEERS will include a selection of CT crafted, along with a list of offerings that simply go great with pizza. FUN FACT: They will offer a $4,000 dessert! Say what? If you order it, you get a Vespa (Italian scooter). DANG. It's going to be a great spot for gathering with friends or grabbing a bite with the kiddos. Scroll to see their cool decor!
A FIRST LOOK AT CLUB PILATES
Club Pilates will open tomorrow with a selection of intro classes. The pilates studio is a chain that started in southern California and has grown nationwide. The owner, Cathy Fagan, purchased the Glastonbury franchise after losing 35 lbs. and feeling both physically and mentally transformed. She is now a fully certified pilates instructor and her passion for pilates shines through when she talks...she is truly delightful! They offer a FREE 30 minute intro class, pilates merch that is adorbs, and some fun cardio class options. Their space is like a little oasis...check it out below!
SECOND FRESH MONKEE NOW OPEN
The Fresh Monkee announced last week that their new location in The Shops on Main is NOW OPEN! Two Fresh Monkees?! Are we in heaven? The hours at their store next to The Coffee Shop have changed, so make sure you check out their Facebook page for details. See their new space below.
