Nutmeg Poisoning

-I often wish I could go to sleep and not wake up until the trend of travel writing being almost exclusively food writing in disguise is over. But I do enjoy when food writing comes over to the travel writing side, especially when it involves travel in, or to, Connecticut. So I love Alycia Chrosniak's Hartford guide on Food52.

-I write a lot about Jewish history in Connecticut, both on this blog and elsewhere. If you like the stuff I've written about this elsewhere, stay tuned, more is coming, and if you're into Connecticut's Jewish history, watch the Old State House's program about how Jews in the Nutmeg State gained religious freedom.

-On that note, in May I went to the premier of Harvesting Stones, a documentary about Eastern Connecticut's Jewish farmers. I don't know how many other options will exist to see this film in a theatre, but if you get the chance, and you're interested in the topic, I recommend it.

-The NYT has a little slide show and a story about the summers Martin Luther King Jr. spent working in the tobacco fields around Simsbury.

-Saturday, June 11, 2016, is Connecticut Open House Day. Yesterday, I was happy to return to WNPR's Where We Live to participate in a conversation about some of the best attractions to visit on Open House Day (or any other day, really!) You can listen to the show here.
