In the evening, Grand Restaurant/Lounge caters to the foodie set, serving upscale bar food amid elegant minimalist decor. Later at night, an array of colored lights begins to glow beneath stairs, along windows, and in the eyes of visiting Terminators. DJs crank up the volume while bartenders sling cocktails below supernova-like chandeliers, but intimate clusters of armchairs provide a respite from the carnival on the dance floor. As they lounge, diners can savor dishes such as lobster ravioli or burgers topped with deviled eggs or fig-balsamic glaze.

Led by globetrotting maestro Eckart Preu, the Stamford Symphony satiates aural appetites with beautiful interpretations of classic and modern pieces. The program will kick off with Leroy Anderson's chart-topping 1951 melody "Blue Tango," which beguiles eardrums with midcentury charm and quarter notes bearing roses in their teeth. Next, the symphony treats audiences to "Last Round," written by contemporary Argentinean composer Osvaldo Golijov to commemorate the death of celebrated tango composer Astor Piazzolla. The soprano saxophone concerto of Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Jennifer Higdon allows the bluesy sax to moodily soar under the supporting harmonies of a full orchestra. Preu tops off the evening with Beethoven's celebrated Symphony no. 6, Pastoral, a five-act tone poem that conjures up images of a day in the country without the hassle of traveling or milking a cow in your living room.
The colorful tile scene and show room inside Ideal Tile of Stamford is indicative of the owners' experience in the contracting business. They opened shop in 1998 and have since been importing their selection of tiles and countertops and distributing the goods out of their 3,000-square-foot showroom. Inside, the sleek surfaces of kitchen and bathroom displays are coated with marble mosaics; limestone, marble, and Caesarstone counters shine under fluorescent lights; and glass, ceramic, and stone tiles glimmer against the sunlight pouring in through the shop's large eyeballs. In addition to curating a haven for home improvement, the staff also customizes granite-countertop installation services and refers customers to external tile contractors.
