Roundup: Lobster Rolls, Le Rouge, Library Cards, More


It took a while, but the Compo Beach food trailer is now open in the grassy area between the concession stand and lifeguard shack. The limited menu includes a ($19.99) lobster roll. Bon appétit!

Not the beach lobster roll. For illustration only.


Aarti Khosla — owner of Le Rouge Chocolates — gives plenty of love. Her chocolate hearts have brought smiles to first responders, Bridgeport high school graduates and more.

As she has read about the COVID dilemma facing teachers — who must balance being true to their calling with protecting the health of their families — she decided to give hearts to every Westport teacher and staff member.

“They are someone’s sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives. They also happen to be our local heroes,” Aarti says.

School reopens next week, so she needs the community’s help. And fast.

Click here to purchase hearts ($8 each). You can also stop by her store (190 Main Street).

As always, 10% of all proceeds goes to charity. This campaign will benefit Mercy Learning Center, the wonderful Bridgeport women’s organization.

You can help package the hearts too. The last time she did this, she had people from 8 to 80 helping.

Lend a hand. Have a heart. Give a heart!


Welcome to September. The calendar includes Labor Day, the Jewish High Holy Days — and Library Card Sign-up Month.

The Westport Library issues free cards to Westport residents, town employees, and Westport public and private school teachers. Non-Westporters can purchase a card.

You can apply for in person at the library, or click here.


And finally … speaking of Library Card Sign-Up Month:

  1. I know there are WAY WAY bigger deals than this in 2020, but the Parks and Rec food vendor situation this year was a mess. The beach stand opens just in time for Labor Day and the golf course halfway house is still shuttered despite the course being busier than ever. Was there no way to have an outside snack shop available this year at Longshore where you could get drinks and a snack halfway through your round (especially with all the water fountains closed)? I’m sure Joey would have figured out a way to make it happen safely if he still had the concession. Is anyone asking this new company about this?
