Who needs a great night of entertainment, deck dining, a speakeasy cocktail, and a whole lot of fun? We did too! Bridge Street Live recently showed up on our radar (Instagram) so we decided to skip staying home on our couch one Saturday eve, and headed to beautiful Collinsville to check it out! Life is about experiences we say, and this checked all the boxes. 🎶🍸🥗 Scroll to the end to observe just how much we enjoyed the eve. 🙂

Restaurant: Zohara Mediterranean Kitchen, 991 Farmington Ave, West Hartford, CT

When you are hankering for: A++ delicious Mediterranean fare. A menu that encourages ordering lots of small plates – which is good, because you’re not going to be able to decide! A unique and very likable craft cocktail menu.

Occasion: Welcome to Unlocking Connecticut! This is our first post as the new and improved Unlocking CT, where we will be discovering the best restaurants in the entire state. Bring it!

Finally, another getaway post! Our last trip was to Scotland and Iceland, so the next place to visit would be Hartford, CT. Naturally! Yep, it was time for us to give our state capital some love and treat ourselves to a little daycation + hotel stay. We decided on The Goodwin Hotel in downtown Hartford, which is pretty much close to everything.

Freshly renovated with a new lease on life, we wanted to check out this iconic hotel. As part of RMS Companies (see our Hotel Zero Degrees feature too!), we knew we would be in for a chic treat. Come, we’ll show you all the bits we loved!
