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!!!

 

–Christie C.

Update and Pork in the Park Info…

Hello all,

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!!

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. :)

Boston Pops Pop-Up Concert Today on Bedford St!!

For those who don’t know who the Boston Pops are (where have you been?!): They started in 1885 as a ‘light’ orchestra–meaning, they weren’t the heavy symphonic orchestra sound you normally think of. One of their most famous conductors, John Williams wrote such famous movie themes as Jaws, ET, Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

The current conductor, Keith Lockhart has brought a lot of great names in to perform with them as well as kept it light and fun. Just a handful of names who have performed with the Pops over the years: Jerry Garcia, Aerosmith, Jason Alexander, Kelly Clarkson, Neil Diamond, the Muppets, etc.

Their holiday albums have become classic but their 4th of July Fireworks spectacular shows are legendary! They unfortunately stopped broadcasting them 2 years ago in this area, but thankfully will be live online this year. Tonight’s 10-piece version of the Pops downtown will be getting all of us ready for the 4th and I CAN’T WAIT!!!

 

The concert itself begins at 5:45pm on Bedford St. — Bedford St. will be closing to traffic at 5pm for this event.

 

I’ll be there, will you???

 

To watch the fireworks spectacular with the Boston Pops, be sure to go to their coverage online: http://bostonpopsjuly4th.org/
