We’re eating our way around CT one restaurant at a time. Today we’re at The Abbey Restaurant & Bar in New Milford enjoying some great Irish American cuisine – plus seafood, plus burgers, plus specialty cocktails…
Had Reis Learning Center been in our lives during our school years…well, who knows how many A’s we would have gotten! We visited this warm and welcoming hub on Bank Street in New Milford to observe kids learning academic things, then had a turn at learning something new ourselves, American Sign Language.
‘Tis the season to stock your shelves with good cheer! Tralalalala! Where better to do this than with our friends at NeJaime’s Wine & Spirits in New Milford. We don’t feel bad that they know us by name in there, we saw a lot of folks who were on a first name basis during our recent visit. That’s just the kinda friendly store they are!
It’s pumpkin season!! We can’t get enough of them. Big orange ones, cute white ones, stripy warty ones…we love them all! We’ve got 5 Connecticut, family-run pumpkin farms you need to visit this season…which also happen to be the perfect spot to snap your best Instagram pics! Fact: pumpkin patches make for great family memories (and photos)!
When Valerie Walsh, Personal Trainer at Phys-Ed in New Milford and creator of CORE Running Group, asked us to join her for a running session, we said “Ok, but we don’t run.” Not so fast, said Valerie, who then set out to teach us that with the right training and support, most anyone (even us) can enjoy the running obsession! We learned some great tips for those thinking of starting (or getting back to) running. Let us share.
