Go wild at Rodizio Grill!

OK, so you've been to Rodizio Grill and tried the maminha (tri-tip sirloin).  You've tried the picanha com parmesao (sirloin with Parmesan cheese).  You've even been adventurous and tried the salad bar.  Looking for something new to try?  Well, you're in luck because October is Wild Game Fest!

This is your chance to try rattlesnake-rabbit-jalapeño sausages, Kurobuta (Japanese wild boar), and bison chili!

Left: Linguica (Brazilian sausage), available year-round.
Right: The aforementioned and delicious rattlesnake-rabbit-jalapeño sausage.

Now, you'd better hurry in because once Halloween hits, Wild Game Fest is gone.  Heck, the bison chili is so popular that I didn't even get to try it!  Maybe they'll whip up a fresh batch just for me.  Rodizio guys?  Anyone?

Retro Games Plus celebrates one year!

If you grew up in the late 70s or early 80s, then you surely have fond memories of Atari, Coleco Vision, Nintendo, Genesis, Super Nintendo, and all the other great systems from the golden age of home video games.  Even if your memories consist of hour after frustrating hour rescuing that darn princess, you still need to check out Retro Games Plus in Westport!

To celebrate their one-year anniversary, they're holding a customer appreciation sale this Saturday - everything in the store will be 20% off!  There will be free soda and pizza as well as a Donkey Kong high score competition - the winner will receive a $40 store credit.

If you haven't been to Retro Games Plus yet, this is the perfect time to go!  They have games and systems going all the way back to Pong and Atari, and their prices beat the pants off of a certain national video game store chain.

Check out their Facebook page for all the information.  I'll be there - look for the guy with the awesome Power Glove.
