Bites for Summer Nights

As the Stamford Downtown Events blog lets you know, there is a very cool community event coming up on August 11th called A Grand Summer Night. You can RSVP for the event here.

It's a unique event to help purchase art for the downtown Stamford area. It's also unique because it takes place in two different places. It begins at 5:30 at the University of Connecticut Stamford campus with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, and moves on to one of Stamford's best restaurant offerings.

When you RSVP, you indicate your top four choices among the restaurants - first come, first serve for restaurant options, which include:

- Aria Restaurant
- Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar
- Bennett's Restaurant
- BUtterfield8 Restaurant & Lounge
- The Capital Grille
- Chez Jean-Pierre
- Columbus Park Trattoria
- Emme of Capri
- EOS Greek Cuisine
- Ferrante
- Market Restaurant
- Mitchell's Fish Market
- napa & co.
- Quattro Pazzi
- Telluride

There are raffle prizes, including a 42" plasma TV and two $250 Stamford Town Center Gift Cards. The evening also features a silent auction of items like event tickets, pastries, dinner gift cards, spa treatments, beauty treatments, teeth whitening, golf, family events, jewelry, plants, photography and travel.

Your ticket price of $80 buys you your meal, dessert, coffee, soft drinks, tax and tip (no booze - that's extra!). RSVP by July 29th. Click on the Grand Summer Night link above to learn more.
