2012 Roadfood Eating Tour - Connecticut

Posted from http://www.roadfood.com/merchandise/connecticuteatingtour/
 
September 29-30, 2012
 
Connecticut gave birth to the hot lobster roll and the white clam pizza. It also is home of world-class donuts, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, and ice cream.
 
We will be staying both nights at the Sheraton Bradley Airport hotel in Hartford, where Stephen is arranging special rates ($99/night). The bus will arrive and depart from this location.
 
Having lived in Connecticut for over 30 years, Jane and Michael know the state well, and their good relationships with many of its foremost Roadfood chefs guarantee that a ticket on this bus will provide a once-in-a-lifetime weekend eating adventure. We'll plan to start each day with superior donuts from around the state. From there, we visit bakeries, shoreline lobster shacks, burger stands, and ice cream parlors, ending each day with a feast at one of the state's legendary pizzerias.
 
The ticket price of $229 includes a place on the bus and a couple of the special meals, but most food will be pay as you go.

    Thanks for the update Stephen.  What I am like best about this tour is the variety of foods we will be eating.

    I was just talking to Chi Town Diner about this last night
     
    I'm looking forward to it. The last bus tour I went on was Buffalo back in 09.

    Very exciting! We are fortunate to live less than 10 miles from Bradley so can spend each night at home ;-) We'd love to do some pre- and post- dining with folks if interested and have some great local ideas if needed .....Terri & Tim

    Just curious: Any price difference if I were to follow on my motorcycle? I'm avid rider. Probably led to my food adventures or vice versa but I digress......

    May we guess at the itinerary?    For what it's worth...
    Donuts: Neil's
    Lobster Rolls: Lobster Landing, Lenny & Joe's
    Ice Cream: Ashley's, Big Dipper
    Pizza: Pepe's, Modern
    Hot Dogs: Doogie's, Blackie's, Super Duper Weenie
    I know I've gotta be at least somewhat close!    Chris

    TRAK9F - I'm local, and also plan on just following along.  Hopefully that works out ok.

    Doogie's for sure. Pepe's: is there space? Will they give the whole Spot next door to us? I get the feeling that Sue's and my enthusiasm for Abbott's isn't shared by the rest of the Roadfood crew, but it would definitely have the space, the setting is terrific, and they are used to crowds. Or maybe we'll get to the new Kitchen Little; they do hot lobster rolls, don't they? S-D-W will, I think, be on the tour. I'm pretty sure one of the pizza meals will NOT be in New Haven; I'm betting Roseland. Ice cream: Dr. Mike's. Fried clams: Sea Swirl, especially if we're doing Abbott's or Kitchen Little. Burgers: Shady Glen. We'll see.

    Chris is pretty close to the proposed trip.  We are still ironing out the details and the surprises.
     
    The price is the same with or without the motorcycle.  It is much better if you join us in the bus.  Besides, you can enjoy the foliage better.
     
    PayPal will be the payment of choice.

    Oh and Chi Town Diner, you won't need a pay pal account to go Roadfooding with me in Rhode Island!

    Will there be one bus or two??
    I hope there is a restroom on the bus!
    This is something I always hoped would happen and now it is!!
    Very exciting!

    Only one bus.  I wouldn't recommend the restroom on the bus, especially since we are going to be making lots of stops at restaurants with more stable facilities.

    Well heck. I'm gonna miss this 1 too. Can't blame it on PP though. I'll be on my own 8K mile roadtrip. I'll be in Pahrump, Nevada that weekend.
     
    Y'all have fun w/o me. Maybe next year.

    Paul went off-topic with my Pahrump mention. Nothing wrong, just threw this important topic way off base. I deleted all of those OT comments.

    I bought two extra tickets with specific people in mind and have since learned that neither one will be able to go.  If anyone is interested in the tickets, let me know.

    Working on planning my fall work travel, as we speak. The trip to Denver that I thought I had is the following weekend. I need to see if I have other conflicts.
