  • The Commissary: Get Whey-sted

    When it comes to diversity, fab food, and restaurants, Middletown has pretty much cornered the market. In fact, if we’re being completely honest right now, it just might be the coolest city in all of Connecticut. No whining from other not-Middletown cities about it either. It’s not personal, so get...

  • The Commissary: It’s A Cosmic Thing

    Follow the rainbow over the stream, follow the fellow who follows a dream. Follow, follow, follow, follow, follloooowwwwww… the yellow brick road. Thank God for Munchkins. Without them Dorothy might have ended up as a casserole in the Wicked Witch of the West’s toaster oven. Or worse, in Newark. But...

  • The Commissary: Just Tasteasing

    Everyone knows that it’s important to eat healthy. That’s why this week’s Commissary will take time out to focus on the four major food groups recommended for maintaining a well-balanced diet. Sugar, icing, frosting, and cake. Because like choosing lovers, buying mascara, or bribing a foreign government in an attempt...

  • The Commissary: Between Two Buns

    Harry’s Place (Colchester, Connecticut) All sorts of enticing things can be sandwiched between buns, no? While it’s debatable exactly what tops that particular list, a juicy slab of meat certainly makes the top five. But regardless of personal preference, we’re here to talk burgers. Let’s be honest right now, a...

  • The Commissary: Head East

    Tisane Café ( Hartford, Connecticut) Searching for a worthy plate of nachos in restaurantland is like trying to find a pair of no-show socks that don’t creep up around your toes immediately after putting them on, causing more frustration and anguish than the final season of “Game of Thrones.” Impossible....

  • The Commissary: Feelin’ Wonton

    Song Restaurant (West Hartford, Connecticut) Feelin’ Wonton There ought to be a sign taped to the door of Song, West Hartford warning patrons to run while they still can. It wouldn’t be great for business, which probably explains why they haven’t done it yet. But it seems only fair considering that...

  • The Commissary: Gettin’ Pimped

    Big Gay Ice Cream Shop (NYC East Village) At first it looks completely ordinary, nothing you’ve haven’t seen a million times before. It’s smooth, dark, and a little drippy, especially when temperatures are on the rise. But once it passes your lips you can hardly believe the euphoria; it totally...

  • The Commissary: Flight School

    Sayulita (South Glastonbury, CT) Fasten Your Seat Belt – It’s Tequila Time If your experience with tequila has been limited to licking salt, eating worms, and waking up with your underpants inside out, then it’s time to level up. And maybe reach out to a therapist. Your call. Anyway, made...
