Sunday, September 19, 2010 Newsflash! Green People Are Nice!!!
Last weeks "Two Tits Down" review of The Norwalk Oyster Festival was my most popular blog post ever. I guess people love it when you hate something. But today I must report that we had the exact opposite experience at Live Green CT at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk.
Right from the start, the volunteers guided us around the parking field with big smiles on their faces. Everyone was nice, friendly. It was like we weren't in Fairfield County at all. I met the friendliest shark, although he pointed out my husband's Titans shirt with his fin, indicating he was not a fan.
The vendors were all super nice and eager to talk about their products. Not pushy, which I hate - you could just tell they were psyched about what they were there for. Peace Tree Desserts had a selection of incredible, local, sustainable, tasty cupcakes. I forgot the name of mine, but it had caramel apples inside a moist dark cupcake topped with the smoothest icing ever - it might been just butter and honey, it was so smooth. Not like any cupcake I've ever experienced. This is a game changer.
There were also a bunch of electric, solar, water powered cars there. You could get run over by one pretty easy - they're way quiet. The Tesla is just a beautiful car. I don't care what it runs on.
This was a great event, I wish them the best of luck in the years to come. Great for homeowners, families and hungry people like me.
Bang on, my peeps!
