My adventures in Connecticut have sadly come to a close. I left Nutmegger country last month in a hurry, but I’ll always remember my wanderlust adventures fondly! Whether it was a trip to Old Saybrook for a great tag sale or finding a favorite concert venue in Northhampton, Mass, I loved the opportunity to wander about the state as if it were my very own over-grown, badly-in-need-of-weeding playground; treasures lying beneath the surface just waiting to see light.
Thank you for taking the time to read my whimsical opinions on CT locale and I hope you’ll continue to follow my ramblings as I wander west to San Francisco. Just as I did in CT, I’m taking this city on with bright eyes, fresh thoughts and documenting from the ground up: tips on navigating the landscape of apartment open houses, using public transportation, what walking the hills does to your legs and how to avert spit puddles in Chinatown.
And with that, I present one final Wanderlust in CT Review….
- West Hartford
- Blue Back Square
It took me a full year to finally venture into this well-known, centrally located restaurant.
But it was worth the wait! Happy Hour runs until 6 pm (great excuse to leave work early) and includes a quick list of delicious and filling taquitos plus half off all drinks, including their house margarita; Patron with a pomegranite-tangerine juice — officially my new favorite drinks! To top it off, we got the homemade guacamole, for which they for to charge us, making it even better!
I’d stayed away from Besito all this time due in part to rumors of overpriced, mediocre Mexican food, but I was so happy to dispel these misgivings.
Forgot to mention something amazing: at te end of our visit, the waitress stopped by with hot churros, ON THE HOUSE. They were beyond excellent and really topped this dining experience.
