Tuesday Movie Nights at Tilley Pond, Official Scoop

Categories: Uncategorized.

(full-size poster:stargazingposter) AllAboutDarien.com is pleased to be the official information site for Darien’s “Star-Gazing” Nights, Movies Under The Stars at Tilley Pond Park. With a giant movie screen set up (former Manhattanites might remember movie nights at Bryant Park?) and Gofer Ice Cream and buttered popcorn on-hand, I can’t think of a cooler way to enjoy a summer evening in one of my favorite Parks in Darien! NEWLY-ADDED to these evenings is live music from 6pm to 8pm, plus The Bridgeport Sound Tigers mascot who will be on-hand to chaperone the slapshot machine they will be setting up!  (They won’t

She Sells Seashells …

Categories: Uncategorized.

Hi again, it’s Jan! It’s almost August and the the end of  summer may be nearing but you can keep it going in your home all year long. Believe it or not, everything in the picture on the left is a candle!  They range  in price from about $8.00 to about $20, and believe me when I say the photos do not do them justice. The picture on the right shows two other sea-themed things, just right for your table top: square plates for salad or dessert. Priced at $28.  And perhaps my favorite find are the starfish salt and

Bonanza at Beadz Boutique

Categories: Uncategorized.

Hi, it’s Jan! One of my favorite places to browse is Beadz Boutique, right near Johnny’s on Tokeneke Rd. I love their jewelry and the fact that you can design you own pieces but, I have to admit I am also a purse junkie and Beadz has some great ones. These very “in” patent bags are from their summer line — and they are all on sale. They are normally about $90.00, but for a limited time they are 25% off. Stop by this special shop and check out their fabulous jewelry and children’s hats, too — all on summer

Shhh … Serious Shoppers Seeking Sales Start On Thursday

Categories: Uncategorized.

All I’m going to say is that the “official” name for the Thursday before the Sidewalk Sales is “Preview Day,” occurring inside all of the participating sidewalk sale stores … but you know what they say about the Early Bird.  That’s this Thursday, July 10th. In fact, you might plan to swing by Noroton Heights tomorrow, where Edward Tunick has been starting HIS sidewalk sales — officially — on Preview Day for 32 years.  On the sidewalk in front of his store you’ll find everything from brand name men’s suits to ribbon belts, Eliza B flip flops for kids and

Local Hardware Store w/ Clearance Corner

Categories: Inside Scoop.

When I was growing up, there were at least 4 hardware stores in town that I knew of … and over the years I guess the Home Depot in Norwalk has driven them out of town.  Even I will admit that when it comes to any kind of home improvement project or a need for paint or keys copied, Home Depot immediately comes to mind as the only place to go.  The thing is, it’s NOT the only place to go. Today I needed to get a ball of twine to tie up some magazine stacks.  I just needed the
