Happy Giving Tuesday everyone! It’s time to give back as well as to shop all those sweet deals at Target. We recommend checking out CONNetic Dance’s #GivingTuesday deal: $100 for tickets the opening night of the Nutcracker Suite and Spicy (Wadsworth Atheneum, Downtown Hartford, December 12th), plus a piece of an original painting created through dance and expression in collaboration with Open Studios!
Also created in collaboration with Penelope! Check out the full Youtube video of the dance here plus a link to purchase the tickets and painting!
A scene from the “ugly sweater party” for Carolyn’s Nutcracker – a signature dance of the performance
Penelope and I will both be attending the matinee on Sunday, December 14th, which includes a special appearance from SANTA and a dance party. Very exciting stuff.
Other exciting stuff – allow me to introduce my new favorite sports bar in the entire world: Bobby V’s
A terrific place to watch the Giants lose 14-20 to the Redskins. Oy.
Head Chef Jordan Stein is an old friend, and he was kind enough to invite myself and Jenna Kijowski and Jessica Brigham Bishop (of CT Ain’t So Bad) in for a lovely sampling of cocktails and food last football Sunday!
Squad! Check out Jenna’s blog here!
Caramel Apple Martini (Caramel Vodka, Sour Apple Pucker & a caramel swirl)
Thin Mint Martini – ooh lala! (3 Olives Vanilla Vodka, Kahlua, Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur, White Creme de Cocoa, Cool Swan Irish Cream, Creme de Menthe)
Pumpkin Spice Martini – for those of us, like myself, who can’t get enough pumpkin even after Thanksgiving (Pumpkin Spice Liqueur, Cool Swan Irish Cream, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, topped with nutmeg and cinnamon)
In addition to football, or the sport of your choice (I just watch football so you tell me) there is also horse and jai alai betting for those so inclined. A fun way to spend an afternoon indeed! Will be back often. And next time, we can only pray, my G Men will WIN instead of – ugh. Enough on that. Thanks again to Chef Jordan for a delightful showcase of his cuisine. A highly recommended spot!
