You can’t reserve tables in the Compo Beach pavilion.
But — starting immediately — you can reserve that cool little space (formerly storage) recently carved out between the brick pavilion and Joey’s.
In a low-key announcement, Parks and Rec says they’re “excited to offer a new PARTY RENTAL space.”
(Note: they never say exactly where it is — beyond “on east beach and conveniently located next to Joey’s by the Shore.” I’m assuming it’s here:
The email continues:
This picnic area holds a maximum of 60 people, and can be rented out from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 4 p.m. until sunset, or even all day to meet your party needs! This is a great location for your children’s parties or family gatherings! Joey’s will be happy to assist in your catering needs!
There are a few rules:
You must apply no later than 72 hours before the event. Applications are first-come, first-served. The permit fee is $50 (plus a refundable $100 security/clean-up deposit).
Guests without parking stickers must pay the regular daily fees. Businesses and non-profits can rent the space Mondays through Thursdays, and are allowed up to 15 parking waivers.
No alcohol, glass, candles or tiki torches. No amplified music either.
Oh, yeah: “Food and catering trucks are not allowed. Catered food must be purchased from Joey’s by the Shore.”
Does that mean you can’t bring any food in? Picnics? Pizza from Romanacci? What exactly is “catered” food?
It shouldn’t matter. Joey’s is great, easy to work with, and can provide whatever you need.
This is the second specially defined party space at Compo. For years, anyone could rent the clubhouse at Ned Dimes Marina for $275 (though most Westporters don’t know that).
So enjoy your next party at the new space “conveniently located next to Joey’s.”

Yes, it really is April 2.
Most of us stayed inside today, waiting for the nor’easter.
It arrived. As of 7:30 pm, over 1500 Westport customers were without power. Including yours truly. With many trees down, this could be a long restoration.
Earlier today, when it was quieter — and prettier — Betsy P. Kahn roamed around town. Camera in hand, she captured these beautiful scenes:
Heavy rain, high winds, a full moon and high tides made for a messy Westport this morning.
Be prepared for more this afternoon.
Westport schools are closing 2 hours early. Stay safe and dry!
