A reader was excited by “06880” stories on the new restaurants that have opened recently in Westport, and others that are coming soon.
She says: “We look forward to trying them all as soon as we get our second COVID shot. Can you suggest to the new places that they offer incentives to those of us who have had both shots to come inside and celebrate — maybe a new kind of Early Bird Special?”
Done! And not just for new restaurants, either. As we emerge from the depths of the pandemic, perhaps some special promotions will encourage diners to go back inside.
At the same time, with the weather slowly getting better (though not today): Don’t forget about all the outside dining options too too.
In fact, on March 11 the Planning & Zoning Commission will consider continuing its temporary outdoor dining regulations.
MoCA’s high school art portfolio workshop — postponed earlier this month due to weather — has been rescheduled for Sunday, March 14 (noon to 3 p.m.).
The session provides information for students applying to college and other programs. It includes lectures, slide presentations, Q-and-A and individual portfolio reviews (up to 5 samples).
The cost is $75. Click here to register. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Discovered yesterday by Nico Eisenberger in his garden: snowbells!
On the other hand, there’s still tons — literally — of snow in the Imperial Avenue parking lot.
Today’s rain will make only a small dent in this.
And finally … Happy 40th birthday, Josh Groban!
