Mayor Joe Cavo Wrapping Up Virtual Restaurant Month in Danbury

Danbury Mayor Joe Cavo and the wonderful folks from the City Hall office have been celebrating virtual restaurant month for all of March. Mayor Cavo, his staff and offices with connections to City Hall have been purchasing and eating food from some of Danbury's best eateries and there are many to choose from. Take a look at where our Mayor has been.

This is as important an issue as we face in our country right now, the survival of small businesses. Kudos to the Mayor and his staff for getting the word out and reminding folks that these are our neighbors and those neighbors rely on us to stay in business in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

I'm asking anyone who is reading this right now to please buy your breakfast, lunch or dinner from one of these great local spots. If you can't please share this link with a friend.

Vacant Brookfield Properties Give Me the Creeps

Brookfield Connecticut is a beautiful New England town with picturesque landscapes and architecture. It does have one section of road that is about a mile long, that time has forgotten.

The recreation center on Mohegan Road in Shelton, CT is all fun and games now but was once the site of some serious business. Shelton is not the only town in CT with a frightening Cold War past, Ansonia and Fairfield boast similar remains.
