When Arnold Palmer’s architectural firm set out to design the 18-hole course at Gillette Ridge Golf Club, it incorporated a long, wooded layout that would showcase the 19th-century politician and reformer Francis Gillette’s original homestead. Today, the course continues to showcase its beautifully crafted layout that has maintained the elegance of a bygone era while opting to share its charming characteristics with the public. Gillette Ridge welcomes all golfers to take on the blistering 7,191-yard tract that integrates groves of mature trees, placid water hazards, and white-sand bunkers that surround contoured greens.

Much of the course's difficulty comes from its length, as demonstrated on the par 5 seventh and 12th holes, which stretch 612 yards and 607 yards from the tips, respectively. Both holes make it nearly impossible to reach the green in two, though for different reasons: the seventh green prevents run-ups with a front side stream, whereas the 12th hole has an early dogleg right that demands more conservative tee shots and golf carts that are pro-environment. The course's premium on distance continues right through the finishing hole, a par 4, 478-yard straightaway that splits two fairway bunkers and forces players to carry the green's front side pond on their approach shot or hope that a friendly frog will lend a lily pad for safe passage. Three practice putting greens, two practice bunkers, and an all-grass driving range provide ample space for golfers to stretch their swings before rounds.

After rounds, players can unwind in Gillette Ridge’s 6,000-square-foot clubhouse, where the course restaurant serves up sandwiches such as the philly cheesesteak and chicken-salad sliders, and starters such as Maryland crab cakes and quesadillas—the late Mrs. Gillette’s specialty that has carried on since the 19th century.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course

  • Total length of 7,191 yards from the back tees

  • Course rating of 74.8 from the back tees

  • Course slope of 135 from the back tees

  • Four sets of tees per hole

At first, Julia Trigila focused solely on lashes. She studied extension work during a career at NovaLash and took on enough clients to become a full-time specialist. On the side, however, her love of makeup artistry drew her to fashion photo shoots and appointments with brides-to-be. She wound up at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics in an endeavor to combine her passions, graduating with well-rounded cosmetic expertise and a renewed respect for skincare.

Today, Julia delivers full-on makeovers at her eponymous business. She still performs eyelash extensions in addition to brow shaping and waxing. Her makeup sessions stress the value of a bright, clear canvas, prioritizing a custom application of primer that suits each client's skin type. Julia shies away from overwhelming faces with too much product or an overabundance of racecar flame decals. Instead, she aims to accentuate features with naturally luminous looks for casual wear or wedding events. She also hosts lessons for clients who are curious about applying complementary colors or subtracting blemishes, age spots, and fruit-punch stains from their complexions.

Though he performs acupuncture treatments with a steady hand, Steve Paine OMD is a mover and a shaker in the world of alternative health care. The published author earned his Doctor of Oriental Medicine degree in Hong Kong, and became a diplomat of both the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists and the National Board of Acupuncture Orthopedics. Paine is committed to Connecticut health-care reform, and, as president of the National Guild of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, advocates for affordable, drug-free natural health care and getting accident victims back to work. His Simsbury location operates in conjunction with a sister practice in Hong Kong, where he acts as director of an office of the Kendall Institute, promoting the Western physiological basis of needling therapy.

Paine uses both acupuncture and herbal medicine to address issues specific to men, women, and children, along with complementary therapies such as massage, cupping, or electromagnetic heat. Patients can nap or listen to music during treatments, or choose from hundreds of guided meditations that enhance inner calm and the ability to astrally project oneself into a courtside seat at a Huskies game.

It?s considered normal for a restaurant to enter a float or banner in a town parade, but in general, these contributions are all made by humans. Corner Pug breaks this tradition each year during West Hartford?s Park Road Parade, gathering local pugs to march down the street with their owners, each pup dressed to the nines in an attempt to win an award for best costume or most flattering hemline.

This annual spectacle is in keeping with the whimsy that surrounds the pub all year long. Framed photos of pugs brought in by devoted owners line the walls to form a canine shrine, and these pups peer enviously at the endless line-up of thick burgers, organic strip steaks, and English pub classics that parade to tables. In between sips of 20-ounce draft beers, visitors should keep their eyes peeled for sightings of Corner Pug?s mascot?Mac, the pug?whose likeness graces everything from the menu to T-shirts, mugs, and bottles of housemade dressing.

Despite the pub?s jocular ambiance, the kitchen staff takes its job seriously?albeit with a wink and a nod, reportedly employing a macaroni technician to make sure each noodle is standing upright. But Corner Pug?s attention to detail (they even serve the fish ?n? chips on London newspaper print) has paid off, earning the eatery a perennial spot on the Hartford Advocate?s Best-Of list.

The word meditation typically calls to mind a feeling of stillness and solitude. Matt DeMichele, however, believes in a shared meditative experience—one that takes place in the muscles as well as the mind. For him, massage is "meditation-in-motion," a way to acknowledge and address the tensions that have restricted one's potential. Since graduating from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy and earning his certification in therapeutic massage and bodywork, Matt has hoped to build this awareness in others and act as a conduit for their body's healing.

Each appointment at Shadow and Trees Massage Therapy begins with an in-depth evaluation. Matt logs information on his clients' recurring aches to better customize a mix of modalities, often blending elements of Swedish, orthopedic, and myofascial massage. Having studied with Aaron Mattes, founder of the active-isolated-stretching method, Matt also leads muscles through short, specific stretches to boost their range of motion. A combination of his active isolated stretching and massage can help combat the effects of past injuries, encouraging ease of movement without smearing elbow joints with grease.
