Ordinarily, this would not warrant selection as Pic of the Day. It looks like just another shot of the disgusting state of Parker Harding Plaza.
But it’s worth noting the box next to the trash can, with its free papers. The issues inside are dated June 2018.
Safe to say they — and the entire news stand — can be removed, no?
Once upon a time there were 9 Manero’s restaurants, in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Florida. The Westport location — where Rizzuto’s is now — was one of the most popular. For decades it drew steak lovers from far and wide.
Today there are only 2 left. One is in Palm City, Florida. Longtime Westporters (from left in photo below) Loretta Santella Hallock, her husband Bob, and their good friends Wanda Tedesco and Chip Platow, had dinner there the other day. Loretta, Wanda and Chip all graduated from Staples High School in 1962.
They remember Manero’s fondly. “The fantastic prime rib and classic Gorgonzola are still on the menu,” Loretta reports. “They were delicious.”
