I purchased two tickets to the CT tour on Sept. 29 and 30.  Now it's impossible to go.  Anyone want to buy?

Any idea when we might see an itinerary for the weekend? We are looking to put together something for Friday night but would like to hit as many different places as we can, so trying to avoid duplicating anything on the tour list.

We will be bringing lots of donuts to the bus (along with some other goodies), but may not be able to get to Orangeside Luncheonette in New Haven for donuts, so if that's on your hit list, you should go. We've loaded more onto Saturday and hope to be back in Hartford Sunday early enough for people to catch flights at a reasonable hour.
 
Saturday is shaping up to be: The Lunch Box, Super Duper Weenie, Wave Hill Bakery, The Spot (Pepe's), Blackie's, The Big Dipper.
 
Sunday: Doogie's, Lenny & Joe's, Zuppardi's Apizza, Ashley's ice cream.

Excellent! You got a steamed cheeseburger in, and you got the two best clam pies in the state, which should be interesting to compare. Only one hot dog place on Sunday - Michael, you are showing such restraint.

That is a really nice mix of restaurants.  Glad there are two ice cream stops in there.  Since I have already been to Ted's and K. Lemay's, I love the fact that we are going to The Lunchbox for steamed cheeseburgers.

If you want a great Bahn Mi near the airport, try Pho 75.  Everything we've had there is delicious.

Thank you very much for posting the itinerary. It's good to know that we have to stop at Dr. Mike's beforehand.

During a family gathering last night, I was telling my twin nephews about the Roadfood bus tour.  Since they are both 15 and are eating machines, they thought it sounded like a lot of fun.  It is too late this year, (they already have other commitments), but don't be surprised if they are on next year's tour, where ever that may be. 
 
I already took them on their first Roadfood eating weekend with me earlier this year and they now love Cincy's 5-Way chili.

Between my brother who thinks I'm completely out of my mind and certifiable for turning down bisquick for pancakes at the Blue Benn Diner 40 miles a way, and my nephews that "like" Taco Bell and Subway  on facebook and my cousin who has a sensitive stomach for bbq and southern food, I wonder sometimes if I was "hatched"

So, so tempting, but I am going to take the high road!

I give my sister credit for exposing the boys to all kinds of interesting foods.  They have both loved Indian and Thai food since they were small.  While we were in Cincy, they were eager to try goetta and loved it!  That's not something you typically see from someone their age.

We live very close to the airport, so I thought I would share some nearby food ideas that aren't yet on the official Roadfood website if anyone is interested.(working to get photos and do some "official" reviews!) Unfortunately the way Bradley is situated you really need a car to get around, but these are all a pretty quick drive from the airport -
Little City Pizza – Simsbury – thin crust,  12 miles from Bradley, and a pretty drive – if Pepe’s Pizza is a 10, this is a 9.95 – we are regulars here. http://www.littlecitypizzaco.com/
Red Rose – family style Italian, great red sauce, and Italian pizza (not New Haven style) – Up Rt 91 to Springfield, 20 miles from Bradley – quick drive up the highway.  http://www.redrosepizzeria.com/
Plan B Burger Bar – local joint, now expanding into small regional chain. Exceptional burgers ,great beer list. Old railroad station so cool interior, too – Simsbury, 12 miles from Bradley. http://www.planbburger.com/flash.html
J Fosters Ice Cream – local – sits between Little City Pizza and Plan B Burgers in Simsbury (yep, there’s some great food in Simsbury!) http://www.jfostericecream.com/location.html
Right down the street on Rt 75 / Ella Grasso Tpke from the airport is Dairy Cream – great ice cream neon – they don’t appear to have a website, here’s an overview - http://windsorlocks.patch.com/listings/dairy-creme
Pho 75 mentioned earlier in this thread – have not had the bahn mi, but the pho is excellent, and the folks that run the place really nice. http://www.pho75.net/
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Tim and Terri

Well, ChiTownDiner is on the ground and blazing a trail.  During the next 24 hours, he has stops planned at Roadfood restaurants in all six New England states.  He is my hero!

I've had the Sklarmageddon in the Boston location of the Friendly Toast. It was a tasty omelet, but not nearly as metal as the name.

Just completed the RI Portion of ChiTownDiner's  bite of New England (actually more like" great big chunk out of New England")  we actually started at Kelly's Roast Beef in Revere Beach MA and worked our way south.
He is now heading back to Connecticut to wreak havoc there...
