Happy GroundBlogs Day!

photo from barockschloss,
I stuck my head out my window today and saw my shadow - which means it's time to get back to blogging! Thanks for your patience while I learn how to keep an extra person alive. Ridiculously glad for the nice weather (except for global warming and such) because I'm running out of ways to avoid cabin fever and looking forward to all the cool things going on in ye olde Stamford since I've been cooped up. For example:

- There's a new restaurant where Court Square used to be called Kosh (108 Prospect Street). They have a nifty Facebook page and website where you can learn more. My neighbors went and tell me the deli offerings are top notch. The restaurant is Kosher, as the name might suggest, and it features a modern outdoor dining area with a fireplace and Montreal-style smoked meats (if you don't know what that means - trust me - yum!). They're having a Super Bowl Sunday Wing Challenge with a chance to win a $100 gift card. Not bad! I, for one, am excited to see that space put to good use. It's a cool spot, and I hope Kosh is a big success.

- There's a new exhibit starting this Friday at the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery (96 Bedford Street). It's called To Italy, featuring an artist named Rex Prescott Walden. There will be an opening event on Friday Feb 3rd from 6-9pm. Click here to see some examples of his work.

- The Avon has Oscar fever - which they regularly contract - and is offering a number of events as part of its Red Carpet Festival. This Saturday there's a Gala event from 6:30 to 11:30pm. There's a film festival running throughout the month. There's also a Live Oscar Night event on the big day (Feb 26th at 7pm). For more information, see the Avon website.

Thank again for your patience - nice to be back!

I have to try Kosh! I read about Montreal smoked meat in "Save the Deli," and it sounds delicious. Let's go!!
