Roundup: Plumed Serpent, MoCA Music …

Last October, a fire damaged Plumed Serpent. It was contained in the front of the popular bridal and formal gown store in Colonial Green, and no one was hurt.

But all merchandise was gone.

They promised they’d reopen. And while closed, the shop hosted appointments for fittings and pick-ups.

Plumed Serpent has kept their promise. They’re back in business.

Area brides (and their mothers) just heaved huge sighs of relief. (Hat tip: Molly Alger)

Pianist Adam Tendler headlines this Friday’s “Music at MoCA” series (July 15, 7 p.m.).

The Lincoln Center Emerging Artists Award honoree will perform a diverse contemporary program, with selections by Aaron Copland, Philip Glass and Darius Milhaud.

Music at MoCA concert series curator (and Staples High School graduate) Alexander Platt will share readings from “Madame Bovary” to complement Tendler’s pieces written by Milhaud for the film version of the novel.

Early arrivals can enjoy MoCA’s “Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse” exhibit, and purchase food and drinks. Click here for in-person and virtual tickets, and more information.

“I noticed this contraption on the chimney of a house on Clapboard and Turkey Hill. Anyone born after 1970 probably doesn’t know what it’s for.”

So — what is it? How was it used? Click “Comments” only if you were born after 1970!


Nearly every day, Jimmy Izzo rises early to see the Compo Beach sunrise.

No wonder (well, lots of wonder). It changes every day.

This was the scene yesterday — truly “Westport …Naturally”-worthy.

And finally … in honor of the reopening of Plumed Serpent:
