The Connecticut Repertory Theatre, the producing appendage of the University of Connecticut’s Department of Dramatic Arts, casts visiting professional actors and talented university students in its plays, musicals, and contemporary performances. This summer’s marquee boasts three musicals: Guys and Dolls, Seussical the Musical, a musical journey through the works of Dr. Seuss, and My Fair Lady. A cast of veteran performers, including Broadway entertainers Terrence Mann, Eileen Fulton, and Charlotte d’Amboise and comedian Steve Hayes, breathe life into the shows in the same way a stack of old books can breathe life into a fire. Performed 12 times over the course of independent 10-day runs, each musical offers up a surfeit of opportunities for reveling in drama and singing along inside your head as loudly as possible.
The 32 taps give Pub 32 its name, with the stocky pint shape of the Guinness tap and the crimson oval of Stella Artois set off against the backlit rows of bottle. The rotating selection of brews has included options from Magic Hat, Magners, Opa Opa, and Dogfish Head. Seven high-definition televisions blast sporting events such as Monday-night football, UConn games, and beard-growing contests. During events, karaoke singers launch the strains of pop anthems up toward the caramel-hued whorls of the wooden ceiling. During open-mic nights, live music fills the bar with the sounds of jangling guitars.
The Hidden Still is "Connecticut's first restaurant and moonshine bar," its staff says. It's a bold claim, but even fanatic mixologists would be hard-pressed to name another bar with more than 10 moonshine varietals on its shelves. Culled from across the nation, and made from genuine moon rocks' first pressings, these moonshines are savored neat, infused in-house, and poured into signature cocktails. Of course, many diners come for the food. Executive chef Sean Martin offers polished interpretations of pub classics, such as flatbread pulled-pork sandwiches and fish tacos.
A casual, family-friendly ambiance has been served as a complimentary side at Boston's since 1964, when founder Gus Agiortis established the very first location in Edmonton, Alberta. Today, nearly 400 restaurants have spread between Canada, the United States, and Mexico, conquering appetites with fresh, carefully selected ingredients that must endure a scrupulous interview process before hitting plates. Behind the scenes, chefs transform hand-pressed, made-from-scratch dough into 18 varieties of gourmet pizzas. At tables, forks plunge through hunks of meat and creamy sauces that make up gourmet pastas, and inside each location's sports bar, fans root for favorite teams while struggling to corral boneless wings with their sauce-stained foam fingers.
Hola Amigo's! My name is William Goff and I am the proud owner of Pancho Loco, which was established way back in 1997.

At Summit Studios, aspiring singers and musicians can learn to play a variety of instruments and sing under the tutelage of experienced instructors. During the private, 30-minute lesson, students can saturate their brains and portable chalkboards with the theory behind guitar, piano, saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, or drums. Meanwhile, in the voice lessons, expert warblers can train croaky cords to emanate mellifluous vibrations through a focus on breath support, intonation, and sight-reading.
