Social Media Promotion

Shop and Nosh at the West Hartford Holiday Stroll

There's nothing quite like finding new places that offer fabulous food that are just steps away from great shopping, right?! Now add a celebratory and festive atmosphere to the mix - and you have the annual West Hartford Holiday Stroll!  When Kat from A Little Bird Told Me PR firm reached out to me about attending this hosted event, I couldn't wait to find out more about what this whole Holiday Stroll was about - and have another opportunity to Shop and Nosh!

West Hartford Holiday Stroll

It turns out that on the first Thursday of December the West Hartford downtown area rolls out an amazing Holiday Stroll. The event is complete with horse drawn carriage rides, local school carolers and street entertainment that included a flashmob style dance! Local merchants throughout the downtown area are open with all sorts of specials - and the atmosphere is fun, festive, and most importantly, family friendly!

We started at Max Burger where our media group was treated to a wide array of small plates and appetizers, and of course, a few cocktails!  Max Burger is located at 124 LaSalle Road, in West Hartford, CT 061073 Phone: 860-232-3300.

I can't begin to tell you how amazing this event is! My most memorable takeaway from the evening was seeing the children truly enjoying all the festivities that were planned for them! From balloon making hats and animals, to the wonderful carolers and local school bands, to the horse drawn carriages taking families up and down the city streets. It truly was a festive time for all!

Next we visited a store I have been hearing such great things about - BK & Company! Really, this beautiful boutique has it going on with frequent fashion shows and shopping specials. So much is packed in this quaint little store from clothing to jewelry to accessories!

And guess which one of these purses is at the top of MY Christmas list???

Next we stopped and watched a high energy flash mob "ugly sweater" holiday flash dance performed by members of ConnecticDance.

Our next stop was every woman's dream! Lux Bond & Green Jewelers! You simply must visit this store to see all the beautiful crystal decor they have on display and of course, their beautiful jewelry!

Our group had so much fun trying on rings and enjoying just about everything in this store!

Our final stop of the evening was for a nightcap at another of Max Restaurant Group's places, Savoy Pizzeria. and what a way to cap off the night. This fun pizzeria is amazing!
