What's on the Menu?

Keep it Local Stamford!

Veteran’s Day

Tuseday November 11th is Veteran’s Day. A day to thank those who have served in the past and I believe to thank those who still serve now.

As the proud friend, niece, cousin and especially, daughter of a Vet, I would like to personally say thank you to the service men and woman out there who have served our country. Thanks to all of you past and present for your service, your sacrifice and the sacrifice of your families back home. We have a Memorial Day for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, we have Veteran’s Day for those who have served in the past and I say we should also honor those who continue to serve us now. So one more time, thank you.

For those military folk, we do have two things to tell you about for Tuesday.

One, Coalhouse Pizza will be donating 10% of their whole day’s sales on the 11th to the Wounded Warrior Project. A wonderful way to give back to those who have served. For more information: http://coalhousepizza.com/event/wounded-warrior-project-10-give-back/#.VGGHLPnF8xF

And second, Colony Pizza (all locations), will once again be offering FREE pizza to all past and present military personnel. This is for dine-in only and ID is necessary. For more information on this as well as Colony’s dedication to the military in our area, Stamford Magazine has written up a very nice piece on it: http://www.stamfordmag.com/s/In-the-Know-2014/Free-Pizza-For-Military-On-Veterans-Day/

We continue to update on our FB and Twitter accounts, so be sure to follow us there as well!!

Special look for Halloween and Halloween Happenings UP NOW!

Hey guys,

 

So it’s been a while but we wanted to let you know that we have posted a page of Stamford-only Halloween Happenings for you!!

 

Oh and we changed our look for the week.  lol

 

So check out our list, get those costumes ready and have a very Happy (and safe!) Halloween!!! :)

We have a new look: Open Letter to Our Followers

Hey there guys,

 

As you can see, I’ve been working on the site a bit.  I know I’ve been all kinds of absent lately and while on one front I’m sorry and on another, well, things happen.  Priorities happen.  So WOTM has been on hiatus and I’m not quite sure when I’ll fully be back on it.

I know the site needs updating as far as links, menus, all that.  I’m fully aware of that.  While I stepped away, Stamford saw a surge of new openings and unfortunately, closings.  It’s been a hell of a Summer all around.  However I’m proud to say that I finally came through on my promise to change the look and feel of the site!!

As of this writing, I’m saying to you now that I’m not sure what direction this site will be going in the future. It is a very strong possibility that the daily happenings will no longer be posted.

Why you may ask?

I’m going to be very honest with you guys now because of your loyalty and support of this site.  Frankly it comes down to time and money when making this decision. What many don’t realize is that the daily happenings can on many days, take up to 2 to 3 hours to put together. And the more places that open in our fair city, the longer it takes to put the happenings together.  This is an incredible amount of work without getting one dime for it.  While I finally have a few folks interested in advertising once the new version gets up there, doing those posts daily may have to take a backseat for now.

Answering a popular question now…What’s on the Menu? despite our name, was never meant to be a ‘foodie’ site. I don’t do reviews, there are plenty of other (and awesome) sites that do that. What’s on the Menu? has always meant, “what’s going on?”  My friends and I used to say that all the time and that is where the title comes from. Stamford is a large city that has an incredible amount going on. Between nightlife, daylife and everything in between, there will always be a lot to write and post about.  I’ve tried to keep up with posts on our Facebook and Twitter feeds, adding pics to our Instagram here and there…but please understand that the time is not quite there to do regular posting.  But I’m working on it. :)

I can’t thank you guys enough for sticking it out while this is going on and hopefully, with the busy holiday season (yes, including HALLOWEEN!) we’ll be posting about where you can go and celebrate! In the meantime, I do hope you like the new look and feel of the site and will continue to follow us on FB and Twitter–we do try to add stuff there daily when we can.

This is by no means a complete list, but we are easing our way back. Keep it Local Stamford!

 

We’re coming back slowly but surely Stamford…

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you know that we haven’t completely disappeared, there are some personal matters that need to be attended to and therefore, WOTM must be moved down on the priority list.

I’d like to apologize for this and hope to be back in full form soon!

I’ll still try to post here and there, will be working on the new site format and in the meantime, will be posting to our FB/Twitter pages when I can.

Please understand that doing this for over 3 1/2 years, I DO have a commitment to the site, to YOU and to Stamford. It  just gets hard to keep up with when it takes hours out of my day and there is no compensation at the end of the rainbow. Hoping the new format will help with that part.

I know that lately Stamford has been going through some strange (and scary) times as well as big events like Alive at Five and others going on and we again apologize for not being as on top of things as we normally are. Sometimes, life just takes a few twists and turns and we gotta go with what we’re dealt.

So with that I would just like to say THANK YOU for sticking with us. For being there. And I hope you are all enjoying your Summer!

 

Be SAFE and as always, KEEP IT LOCAL STAMFORD!!!
