Make sure you check back here in 2038 – we’ll prove it!

‘Tis the season to stock your shelves with good cheer! Tralalalala! Where better to do this than with our friends at NeJaime’s Wine & Spirits in New Milford. We don’t feel bad that they know us by name in there, we saw a lot of folks who were on a first name basis during our recent visit. That’s just the kinda friendly store they are!

The Housatonic Valley Association was founded in 1941 to protect the entire Housatonic River Watershed, stretching 2,000 square miles of land. To help fund this mighty endeavor, the HVA Auction for the Environment began 28 years ago.

If you’re a Good News Restaurant groupie (of which there are many) you’re well aware of their recent facelift and makeover.

Dottie’s Provisions is everything you could ask for in a bakery and a coffee shop. It’s got the location (in a beautiful cobblestone courtyard in the lovely town of Litchfield), the baked goods (hello famous Dottie’s donuts and more!), the coffee (😍), and the lovely family who uprooted everything to move to Connecticut to run it!

Yep, it’s pretty perfect, and as we’re quickly turning into Unlocking Connecticut Bakeries….here’s our expert synopsis 😉

Does the thought of switching cell phone plans make you break out into a cold sweat? Would you rather do your laundry, weed the garden, and unload the dishwasher, than try to figure out where to begin with swapping carriers? Same here!

Luckily for us, our friend and #1 Sprint customer Paul Marcarelli lives on the way to the Torrington Sprint store. So we stopped by to pick him up and bring him along to assist us with the whole process – with some careful planning, of course, as his filming schedule is pretty crazy with all of those commercials!
