The Olive Bar

A Gem in the Heart of Unionville We’re big on the “go to” places when we just don’t want to cook or we’ve been riding mountain bikes all morning and nothing sounds better than a drink and a bite to eat.  The “O” Bar is one of those places. We find ourselves time and again falling back on this Unionville […]

J. Timothy's Taverne

Wings, Wings and More Wings! Today we were greeted by Nikki and Hallie who were already seated in a booth nearby the bar.    Hallie recommended the “Little Black Dress” martini which Tammy decided to try.  Knowing they don’t carry Labatt Blue, I settled into my usual alternate beer, a Corona.  I like the lighter ales and pilsners as the craft […]

Rathskeller Restaurant and Bar

Rathskeller Restaurant and Bar

A Hidden Gem First you must actually find the Rathskeller before you can enjoy what it has to offer.  But once you do, it will soon be in your GPS favorites!  Now, although we’d heard about “The Rat”, as it’s affectionately known by the locals, quite some time ago we finally visited when a friend hosted a happy hour there a few […]

Tiago’s Bar and Grill

Tiago’s Bar and Grill Great Drinks and Peanuts on the Floor!  Walking into Tiago’s is like hanging out with an old friend; relaxed, comfortable and the drinks are always good. The place has the easy ambiance of a long forgotten era; the warm patina of age sprinkled with modern touches and dressed in its Sunday best. As we walked inside, […]

Two Boots of Bridgeport

Two Boots of Bridgeport

Great Cocktails and Pizza, Cajun Style! I’ll never forget the first time I walked into Two Boots of Bridgeport.  It was the “new place” in downtown Bridgeport and I was eager to host one of my pre-MH, monthly Happy Hours there.  Walking in I was greeted by a comfortable bar; eclectic trendy accents and red bar stools.  (I love RED […]
