Gallery events?  Wine dinners? We have all those too.

Don’t forget dear old dad….

June 13th, 2016 by hafford

fathers day When you purchase a gift certificate for dad this Father’s Day we’ll put a little something special in his room when he checks in.   If you’re dad enjoys beer he’ll find a sampler six pack of cold ones in his room when he arrives.   Connecticut has some awesome breweries (including a few right here on the CT. Shoreline) and we have our favorites that we look forward to sharing.    If dad prefers chocolate covered oreos, turtles and truffles over beer just let us know.   We’ll leave a nice collection  of hand made chocolates will be left instead.
