That’s some good bratwurst

Picture It was a gorgeous fall day – a perfect day to eat outside and enjoy some bratwurst to the sounds of the Mad Bavarian Quartet. I brought the family and stopped in at the Inn at Danbury to enjoy their annualĀ  mini-Oktoberfest celebration. The food, as always, was excellent. You could order food, such as bratwurst and french fries, from an outside stand, or go inside to select items from a reduced price dining room menu. The inn’s 6th annual Oktoberfest was free for all; mark your calendar for it next year!

Refuge from the rain

I haven’t been up to Ragged Mountain in Danbury for a while, so I took a trip to see what was new. (I love to look at real estate, and wasn’t sure if the development plans for the ski area were moving along.) I was able to drive through a big rainstorm and make it up the resort before the torrential rain hit. Fortunately, there was a new weekend restaurant waiting for me: Off Piste Pizza. It was quiet when I first arrived, and there was plenty of seating at the bar or near the wood fire pizza oven. I met Steve – the host, chef and waiter – and ordered a cheese pizza. The the rain hit, and all the golfers came in. I wasn’t able to get the scoop from Steve, as he was pretty busy with a family, three groups of golfers, two elderly ladies out for lunch, and me. But he did say that Overlook Bistro, the evening restaurant that shares the same location as the pizza place, hosted 55 people on Saturday night. (I hope he had help!)
