Cookies, Kids and Cures

photo from lindseywb,
My parents are up this week and gave us the best gift of all - a night out for us new parents! It was great getting reacquainted with the world. We spent it revisiting one of our favorite restaurants in the area: Morello Italian Bistro (253 Greenwich Ave in Greenwich). I wrote about it here.

Once again, it was a lovely evening. Among other things, we enjoyed a crazy strong kiwi Cachaça cocktail, a béchamel and boar lasagna and the most romantic setting around. I'm pleased to echo all the warm and fuzzy things I said before. It's 4000% worth a visit.

While there, I learned about a blog-worthy event sponsored by the restaurant. On Saturday, February 25th at 6pm at the Bruce Museum (1 Museum Drive in Greenwich). Morello will take part in A Cocktail for Music. The event is a benefit wine tasting to benefit Cookies for Kids' Cancer. The charity is designed to fund cancer treatments for young people and was founded by parents of a 2 1/2 year old child named Liam who fought his own cancer battle. The evening will spotlight Horseneck Wine. There will be a raffle as well as performances by violinist, David Gale, and pianist, Riko Higuma. Tickets are a little pricey - at $45 - but it's hard to think of a more worthwhile cause.

To purchase tickets, email or call 917-771-9556.
