BeerGasm Spring Indoor Block Party at Witchdoctor Brewing

BeerGasm

The Southington Chamber of  Commerce held the BeerGasm Spring Indoor Block Party at the Witchdoctor Brewing Company on Thurday May 10, 2018. I love attending events with food and alcohol (if you couldn’t already tell). Also, I am a huge fan of supporting local businesses. In other words, when you do, you support a dream.

The admission price included a free glass and a first free pint from Witchdoctor Brewing Company. I tried the Tropica double IPA and my boyfriend got the Haze-A-Faire New England-Style IPA. However, mine tasted better and not just because it had the highest alcohol content. It tasted like a lot of care was put into the brewing process. Not to be cheesy, but you can actually taste the love and care that the people from Witchdoctor Brewing put in. The Tropica tasted like summertime in a glass.

Food

I’d be lying if I told you that Ideal Tavern‘s duck confit egg roll wasn’t one of the best egg rolls I ever had. Trust me, I know egg rolls). Definitely have to have dinner there soon. They handed me a menu and I was drooling, everything sounds so delicious, artsy, creative, and perfect for a future date night. We bought two bags of jerky from Mister B’s Jerky Co., a local jerky store in the town center of Southington. We got beef jerky in Cajun and BBQ flavors and will swing by the shop to replenish our supply when we inevitably run out.

We also got a free key-shaped bottle opener from Escapism. They are an up-and-coming escape room opening in June. The four themes to choose from: nuclear meltdown, haunted encounter, Egyptian tomb, and bank heist. I cannot wait to be able to test my puzzle-solving abilities when they open.

Music

The live band sounded great and their covers of 80’s hits were great. The aesthetic of the venue itself was beautiful. The brewery has an exposed ceiling, renovated brick-covered factory, and modern/contemporary vibe. The tables suspended with wire caught my boyfriend’s eye and he called them a masterful piece of engineering. He builds houses for a living.

Final Thoughts on BeerGasm

In conclusion, the BeerGasm event was a wonderful little showcase of some of the unique, wonderful local businesses we have to offer in Southington, Connecticut and I look forward to the next one!

Daffodil Festival 2018Daffodils are the Trumpets of Spring

Hubbard Park Daffodil Festival- Meriden, CT


There’s nothing like a walk in the park on a fresh spring day. Hubbard Park hosted it’s annual Daffodil Festival (April 28-29th). It included a craft fair, amusement park rides, fair food tents, and pathways adorned by beautiful, bright bunches of daffodils. You can look at the pretty flowers. However, the park discourages visitors from picking any blooms by implementing a $98 fine per flower (that’s an expensive bouquet!).

My boyfriend and I had a mini photoshoot with the daffodils. They are absolutely stunning in real-life photos really don’t do them justice. Then he got me sea glass earrings, we got candied nuts and toffees, and we got some really cool dictionary prints from Fresh Prints of CT. Finally, we grabbed a quick bite to eat at the food tent. I’m totally looking forward to the warmer weather and more discoveries and adventures to come.
