Well, TheatreWorks got cancelled because one of the actors is 'seriously ill' and we found out [by phone] just an hour before the performance.
Ended up at the Wadsworth Atheneum's exhibit of the Hudson River School. Interesting to those who enjoy landscape art and meticulous detail. All the pictures ended up looking the same: same horizon line, same lighting detail, same lighting directionality. But it is an exhibit of related artwork; note the word 'School' in the title.
Stopped in at Joe Black in the former Society for Savings Bank building on Pratt Street in Hartford. It had just been written up in the NE section of today's Sunday Hartford Courant. What a fantastic building and they have kept a lot of the original woodwork, flooring, etc. So many different areas to drink, watch TV, eat. We had a Harps, a Wheat Beer, a White Wine and a Key Lime Martini [quite the mix but there were four of us].
Next down to Trumbull Kitchen on where else but Trumbull Street. Good Bread selection with a Pesto Butter. I started with an order of Fried Calamari which was delicious. The entrées were Brick Chicken [some new torture technique to reduce a half chicken to succulent submission], Sea Bass special [which was declared very good], a Shrimp Cobb Salad [which I realize I should have ordered the minute it appeared at the table] and my order of Crispy Chicken Sandwich [breaded chicken cutlet with Artichoke Spread] which was very crispy and chicken; need I say more.
Ended with two Iced Greek Coffees which had a dash of Ouzo in them and three Greek Cookies each [these and the Ouzo were the selling points here (and the $2 price!)].
Winners seemed to be the Sea Bass and the Shrimp on the Cobb Salad. Also the $27 off the bill with two [count'em] CPTV cards.
blognote: 'the chicken was delicious, nicely spiced and very succulunet (?)' according to an email I just received from the person who ordered it [but had difficulty spelling 'succulent']. 7/21/06
