Blog Roundup — Park Road Wrecks, Sidewalk Holes and Good Eats

Posted by whforums on September 7, 2008

Two posts from two very different blogs, both about our fine town.

First, over at the Purple Primate Communication Institute, Purple Primate writes a fantastic narrative about a hit and run accident he/she got into (with a tow truck doing the hitting and running, no less) near the Park Road onramp to 84. Maybe we can help the primate (perhaps you were in the white van?), but, if nothing else we can live vicariously through his/her story (while providing supportive comments, of course). There is some “sailorish” language, so don’t send your kids after that link ….

Then there’s Ben over at Observations of the Trailing Spouse. Ben has, as the title suggests, trailed his spouse here to greater Hartford (I’ve trailed, too, Ben, and in some ways I suppose, I’m still trailing!) and has some pretty great posts. First, I’d point you to a post which asks a question I’ve thought many times but never actually let outside of my head — what’s with all the holes that have been drilled in West Hartford’s sidewalks? Primarily, though, I want to point you to Ben’s West Hartford Restaurant Reviews, which I think are pretty right on (except that our experiences at the Front Street Bistro have been more hit than miss).

If there’s other West Hartford stuff happening on other blogs, send it my way and I’ll aggregate …

    Thanks for finding me! Yeah, the Front Street Bistro, as I mentioned, probably should get another go-around because they’re new and adjusting to being a full restaurant. I was just let down by the experience and felt we hit everything there at a bad time (food, service, etc).
