CATERING OPTIONS AND MORE AT MULBERRY TOO
If you haven't had time to stop in to Mulberry Too yet, put it on your list! The to-go food options are literally endless from full-family style meals (YES PLEASE!), to casseroles, soups and salads, sides, sauces, dips, or even all the fixings for nachos. They also offer fresh sandwiches and hand-made chips. And, just in time for the holidays, they have perfected their COVID-safe catering options. They will wrap foods individually to make your event easy and stress-free for everyone. There are so many choices! Take a minute to look at their website HERE for a full list of menu and catering items or call them to place your order: 860.781.8303.
PLANS IN THE WORKS TO REVIVE GOLF LAND
Connecticut Golf Land in Vernon was a popular family attraction for five decades before it closed in 2014. Now, there are plans to revive the venue! A proposal with renderings of a new facility were submitted to the town for review a few weeks ago. It's unclear if they will keep the same name, but the owners plan to put up a new building and offer additional entertainment. See pics below.
THE PLACE 2 BE OPENS SECOND LOCATION IN HARTFORD
If you haven't had a chance to check out The Place 2 Be in Hartford yet...you must visit their new location in Constitution Plaza. It's like a wonderland of food innovations. Their plates and drinks are near works of art...no lie. So is their new space! It looks like so much fun on Insta that we could hang all day with them. But instead, we are making plans to visit and test out one of their famous tubs (literally a mini bathtub) filled with a cocktail (because why not?!). We'll just leave a few examples to entice you below!
*Zinnekens Belgian Waffle & Cafe has put up their OPENING SOON sign in the One Stop Plaza. They will offer some delicious Belgian waffles with all kinds of yummy toppings and a selection of drinks. COVID delayed their plans, but the build-out is underway. We will keep you posted.
*Sarah Victor Beauty Studio & Spa moved into new space in the building on the corner of Putnam Boulevard and Naubuc Avenue. Inside is the FIRST blow dry bar in town called Studio 476 which will open October 20th. Click HERE to see some of their offerings.
FOODSHARE SUPPORT STILL NEEDED
If there is one thing this pandemic has taught people, it's nothing is certain. But to face that uncertainty about how you will feed your family everyday? Unimaginable. Each week, thousands of families are grappling with this new reality. Foodshare has been distributing food to families in need at Rentschler Field for months. Through the end of October, they are offering food 3 days per week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays) from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM. They are always in need of donations, perhaps now more than ever as we head into the holiday season. If you are interested in volunteering, visit www.foodshare.org.
ODDS & ENDS…
*SPONSORED BY MONACO FORD
*Square Peg Pizzeria is giving away 1,000 FREE pizzas on October 19th to say thank you to customers who have been supporting them through COVID and to celebrate their 1-year anniversary. They will be giving away cheese and pepperoni pizzas to the first 1,000 people that day! Get there!
*Don't miss the "Spooky Stroll" at Killam & Bassette Farmstead every Friday and Saturday during the month of October from 6:30 to 10:00 PM. It's $5 per person and all of the proceeds will go to the Judy Lynch Memorial Scholarship Fund. Grab your Halloween costume and go for a good old-fashioned spooky scare!
