FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Foodies will converge on Fairfield Jan. 28 for the first-ever Taste of Fairfield WinterFest, a celebration of food and friends that’s billed as the perfect antidote to the winter blahs.
Sponsored by Fairfield Magazine and benefitting Operation Hope, the event will highlight more than two dozen restaurants and businesses — from craft beer and comfort foods to fine cuisine — at Brooklawn Country Club from noon to 4 p.m.
“Good things happen when people connect over good food,” said publisher Geoffrey Morris of TownVibe, the company that owns the magazine.
And WinterFest will give you a reason to put down your fork and knife from time to time.
The event will feature a live DJ and a silent dance floor — the latest craze in which people cut a rug to whatever’s queued up on their headphones.
In addition, Brooklawn’s four-lane bowling alley will be set up for Rock N’ Bowl with black lights and music.
Plus, there is A VIP lounge sponsored by Maplewood Senior Living, comedians from Fairfield Comedy Club and a special young kids’ area with crafts and face painting.
General admission is $50 and includes food, drink and all entertainment. VIP admission is $100 and offers access to the VIP lounge with unlimited food and drink. Guests under 21 are $20 and children under 10 are free.
Featured restaurants include Artisan, Hub & Spoke, SHU Fairfield and Rive Bistro. For a complete list of restaurants participating go to townvibe.com .
