And surprise surprise, Athena’s Warriors will be a part of the competition this year. It helps now that we got the differences between wrenches and pliers together…JUST KIDDING. We also got a mentor from Michigan so everyone knows what that means
Everyone look for purple. We have limited edition buttons with our Robot namesake Rosie the Riveter this year that we will be giving out to teams (one a piece).
Oddly enough, even though I live pretty close to Hartford, I can’t say I’m all that familiar with the dining scene. I’ve heard good things about Black Eyed Sally’s, but I’m not sure if that fits into a regional schedule well.
…wow, I feel awful that I can’t name a restaurant that fits your description. I guess that’s what I get for being spoiled with good food closer to home.
I know the feeling, I’m the same way… I know the bar scene mostly from friends visiting them all the time(never actually been downtown for drinking or anything), but I can’t say much at all about the dining scene.
