Today’s blog adventure brings us to the childhood home of luge Olympian Tucker West, in Ridgefield, CT. With such a cool name as Tucker West, we think he was probably destined for great things! He has numerous world cups and gold medals to his name from luge championships around the world. “At the age of 18, Tucker was the youngest male ever to qualify to represent the United States in the men’s luge at the Olympics. West placed 22nd in the men’s single competition at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.” Thanks, Wikipedia 😉

Just in case…luge is the face-up, feet-first sled one. Haven’t you ever wondered how anyone gets into such sports, and what must be going through their mind as they hurtle down that icy track? Us too…read on.

Tucked away in the hills of Ridgefield lives an unassuming talent. He’s a legend in the theatre world. His name is Richard Pilbrow, and as the founder of Theatre Projects (celebrating its 60th anniversary this year), he’s also one of the world’s leading theatre consultants, a stage lighting designer, an internationally known author, and a theatre, film, and television producer. He’s charming and witty, and he’s also one of the nicest gentlemen you’d ever want to meet!

For those of you who think Bev and I blog full time, think again! I’ve been at Theatre Projects in Norwalk for 9 years as a project coordinator and it’s truly exciting to work for the pre-eminent theatre consulting organization in the world that continues to stay at the leading edge of theatre design.

Olley Court, located on Main Street in Ridgefield, is one small-but-mighty, utterly sumptuous boutique! Selling home decor, clothing, jewelry, art, gifts, and interior design services – you can cancel your round-the-world trip, they’ve found all of the most exquisite objects from around the globe for you! We spent the morning with store owners and interior designers Susan Buzaid and Robin Curnan, discovering everything there is to know about Olley Court.

Winter blahs much? Us too. With the holidays well behind us, but the results of the cheese and wine diet still lingering, we decided a day at Adam Broderick Salon & Spa would be just the thing to pep us up. We entered the salon looking slightly bedraggled (it was a ridiculously rainy day) with no makeup ready for our “before” pictures…and left feeling both glam and rested. Between services, we were lucky enough to spend some time with salon and spa maven Adam Broderick himself!
