Recently four friends and I went to The Kate in Old Saybrook to see the Hit Men, four men around my age who sang songs popular in the '70s and '80s. It was maybe the best concert I have seen in years (definitely as good as the ones I actually heard back in the...

By the time I got a chance to have huevos rancheros at Tequila's in Old Saybrook, they were no longer doing breakfast at the restaurant. But, sad as I was, it was 1:30 in the afternoon and I was ravenous. The menu looked very, very good, and I ordered Lola's...
