Fish Oil Pills Raise a Stink

By Frank Szivos I am compelled to raise a stink about fish oil pills. I have taken them for years. They’re supposed to be beneficial for my heart and cardiovascular system, stimulate my metabolism and help keep me trim. Fish oil pills are supposed to do just about everything short of making me immortal. But there’s a down side to […]

TAPS Fish House and Brewery

Taste The Adventure So, I haven’t been hunting for a while. The Hubs and I moved to Corona from the Torrance area recently and I have to say, there aren’t a lot of Gastropubs or cool bars/restaurants near our new digs. Now, I know that part of moving to a new area is exploring and finding new haunts. Well, we’ve definitely […]

The Beach House

The Beach House

Ocean Elegance Vacation is the perfect time to leave your watch behind and just enjoy the moment and that’s exactly what happened when I stopped in to the Beach House Restaurant.   This was the second stop on an afternoon of sea breezes, good food and even better martinis with my good friend and “Hunter-in-Training”, Judie.

Eighty Jarvis

A Hilltop Surprise in Holyoke After a great day in Western Massachusetts, my friend and I grabbed a bite to eat before I hopped on the highway to battle traffic back to Connecticut. Located on a hilltop with views of the nearby mountains, Eighty Jarvis was a pleasant surprise. An open and inviting dining room and bar offered clean lines, […]

Acapulco Madrid

Acapulco Madrid

Mexican With a Dash of Spain(ish) While heading out for Italian one night, Joe and I apparently caught the wrong boat and ended up at Acapulco Madrid, a Mexican/Spanish restaurant in Thomaston, CT. The Italian restaurant was not opened as advertised on their Facebook page. Their loss, our gain! One of the great things about the restaurant is that if […]

Crazy Night!

Crazy Night!

Wow!  Crazy night last night; wicked wind and torrential rain and get this… 72 degrees!  Actually it’s a typical September storm if you live in New England.   I love watching Mother Nature throw a hissy fit!  It also reminded me of a classic cocktail: the Dark N’ Stormy.  Here’s the recipe and photo, borrowed from Andrea J. Bartholomew at TheFramedTable.com Dark N’ […]

My Favorite Pumpkin Martini Recipe

When the weather turns cooler the comforting smell of cinnamon and ginger start to turn up everywhere. What better way to celebrate the Fall Equinox than with a deliciously spicy Pumpkin Martini? I love playing with this recipe every year, making little tweaks, changing up some of the ingredients, but always making it yummy. As with most recipes, why limit […]

Bin 300

(with comments by MartiniHunter) With the “Head Hunter” (a/k/a Tammy) being on vacation, it seemed like a perfect time to relax and enjoy a some lunch. Since Tammy was heading up to the Waterbury area for a meeting later that afternoon, it seemed like a great time to introduce her to one of Wolcott’s culinary treasures (THE ONE in my […]

bartaco

“Holy Guacamole! (and Margarita’s too!)” By 9irlinthe9reenscarf & MandyPandy622 Bartaco was a MUST on our list from the minute it first opened in downtown Stamford. Nestled between Buffalo Wild Wings and Barcelona this Summer Street restaurant is a definite go-to! We heard of this island oasis from a friend. The name was deceiving at first; we had no clue what […]
