Black Cat Grille in Redding, CT

We were looking for a quick bite to eat on a Sunday afternoon. “How about Black Cat Grille?” I asked. So we went and were quite pleased with the beer selections on tap, menu options (from unique seafood to traditional pub entree options), and even a palatable kids’ menu. We really only had 45-minutes for the meal, and we were able to polish off our meals without feeling rushed. They also serve brunch. Many were eating at the bar, and the main dining area was quickly filled. Definitely worth a visit and trying out the reasonably-priced options!

Catfish sandwich (grilled) and served in a zesty sauce; delicious with the fixings.

Sky Zone – How High Can You Fly?

IMG_9645

Have you been to Sky Zone in Bethel, yet? This is the first trampoline park in CT. Plan to jump for at least 30-minutes in a room with wall-to-wall trampolines. Pricing is by time. Reserve your jump time ahead of time online to guarantee entry during the desired time. Yes, even adults can jump. It is truly exhiliarating doing splits in the air (can’t do them otherwise). Be sure to buy the Sky Socks (they are a cool orange color and have grips on the bottom to prevent from slipping) and bring them back each time! Younger kids can jump, too (there is a designated zone for them if it gets too crowded). Birthday parties (not just for kids!) and corporate events are welcomed. There is plenty of space. Dodgeball and basketball hoops are available, too. As they say, fly high and safely!
