Urgent: March Madness Restaurant Week(s)!!!

Stamford Downtown's website brings fabulous tidings of affordable food. Yes, it's Restaurant Week(s)!

Essential info: A Winter Restaurant Celebration in Stamford Downtown will take place Sunday-Thurs, March 2- 6 and March 9- 13. Restaurants will have special prix-fixe deals during the week, meaning you can try out new restaurants without going broke. We need to hit this event full force and eat our faces off.

The poster calls the event "March Madness," which is pretty clever, since it will be a feeding frenzy. I'll post prices below, but visit Stamford Downtown Special Services District's site for more info.

SDSSD does awesome events like Resto Weeks and the Alive at Five summer Thursday concerts, but I am having significant trouble mastering their name. I suppose we can shorten it to "Stamford Downtown Association" or "Stamford Downtown Services," but those names don't reflect the entertaining nature of the concerts, parades, farmers markets and street celebrations. I'm going to humbly suggest "Stamford Downtown Entertainment." Their blog is called "Stamford Downtown Events," so that could work , too. Even "Stamford Downtown Events and Entertainment" (SDEE) would be a big improvement. Sure, people want services, but entertainment usually wins out!

Speaking off entertainment, I'm off to another day of the Avon's Oscar Film Fest- as usual, I am proudly supporting SD!

HOW do you know so much? Zobot, maybe you should do a blog! Although, they're lots of work, and I'm happy to selfishly host your great comments on Stamford Talk.
I may be out of town Thursday; if not, I'll be at Taste o'S! Thank you for the scoop! It's weird that I read all of the online info in the paper... how did I miss Taste of S?

I had a hard time finding anything about ToS online. I heard a promo for it on the radio today while tooling around snow-covered Fairfield County. I promise, if I ever start a blog I'll still come here, you're much more entertaining than I am!
