The Chinese New Year - We found a cool little gem in Middletown called Forbidden City. It's a bistro and art gallery running specials for the Chinese New Year tonight. You can try out some contemporary Chinese New Year cooking at a discount, then grab a glass of wine and check out the galleries.
Wine a Little - We get it. The economy stinks and your dining budget is probably tight. The thing we love about Rizzuto's in West Hartford is that on Monday nights all wine under $60 a bottle is half priced. They're also offering a three-course prix fixe menu tonight for $25. And bonus, for $10 you can pair your first and second courses with Italian wines.
Old Time Radio - It's open auditions tonight at the Hole in the Wall Theater in New Britain. They're casting for a show called Live Old Time Radio. It's free to audition, but you've got to be prepared with material and a costume from the '30s and '40s.
