Daddy's is done, plus other stuff
Daddy's Junky Music, the best spot in town to buy an amp that goes to eleven, has, sadly, closed its doors.
I did my part to support this very cool business; I bought my wife a piano stool there - and even paid cash! It's too bad there isn't more of a homegrown music scene in Stamford. Also, rumors have been swirling for a few years that the Rich Company wants to tear down the one-story building that housed Daddy's and put up something bigger, which is kind of a shame because it's a nice holdover from old-school downtown. Check out a few of the neat details:
In the meantime, if they replace it with A) Panera Bread, B) Starbucks, C) Pinkberry, or D) CVS, then I will officially give up.
In other news, if you didn't try a flatbread sandwich at Sandella's on Bedford Street, well, you'll never get the chance now (that'll teach you to procrastinate). Sandella's, which I also never visited, is going to become picante!, and from the sign, I'm guessing it'll be something like Sierra Grille or Chipotle.
On the plus side, if you go to the right restaurant to know what to ask for, you can enjoy this amazing sushi roll:
And if sushi's not your thing, there's always the new Shake Shack in Westport...
