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.
Thanks so much WOTM Nation! We wouldn’t still be here without you and consider this a great big group hug!!
We’re not ‘officially’ back yet Stamford, but it IS Alive at Five Thursday and we wanted to tell you about a couple of things going on…

Crabshell: Lefty plays LIVE at the Shack tonight! https://www.facebook.com/CrabShellRestaurant
This is by no means a complete list, but we are easing our way back. Keep it Local Stamford!
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!!!
In case you missed our posts on FB, we’ve been taking a much needed break. But we do apologize for not being around this week. Sometimes you just gotta take some time to regroup.
We’re going to take a few more days off but while we’re here, wanted to remind you that the Pork in the Park is back at Mill River Park this weekend. A food gorging fest of smokey goodness, LIVE music, activities for kids of ALL ages (so yeah, you can bring the little ones as well), pig races, bungee challenge, face painting and more!!
For more info on the whole festival: http://www.porkintheparkbbq.com/
So while we won’t be posting happenings over the weekend, we still wanted to let you know that yes, we are still around and WILL be back. :)
Thanks for hanging with us and we’ll see ya’ soon!!! Have a great time Keeping it Local Stamford!!!
