I just got back from The Fresh Expo. There were all-natural dog food places, organic juice stands, nutrition stuff, workout supplies and bicycle safety materials for kids. While it was not my typical 'scene', I did get lots of swag and some food. A lot of the booths seemed to be selling herbal, all natural, organic, witch-doctor (kidding -- at least I don't think I met any witches unfortunately) stuff.Read More
Geese are by far my least favorite animal. I’ve never had a good encounter with one of these animals and I for one, hate them. Most people can agree that they are disgusting birds who litter yards and golf courses with feathers and bird crap. Aside from the mess they make, I had an altercation with one as a child.
When I was younger my sister’s, father and would go fishing some weekends. These trips were always fun and I looked forward to them. I’m not sure how much we caught, because it was never about catching the biggest or most fish, but about the fun as a family. At this point in my life I hadn't begun my goose hate, but one fateful day things changed.Read More
This past weekend I went to MiKro. MiKro is a craft beer bar and bistro located in Hamden Connecticut. MiKro consists of an average size bar with a handful of tables. Initially when I walked into Mikro, first through a door, then through a curtain, I realized it was quite dark, which I was not expecting for a Sunday morning. However once I adjusted, I noticed it had a somewhat rustic and cozy atmosphere.
Every Sunday from 11:30 to 2 they have a special brunch menu. Items on this brunch menu include; French toast, hash, croque madame, chilaquiles, MiKro benedict, shrimp and grits, sausage biscuits, kale chop salad, and a MiKro burger. However this menu varies from week to week with some of it’s dishes.Read More
I joined the UConn Men's Rugby Club my freshman year. I had never played rugby before, but soon enough it became one of my favorite sports. It’s a great source of camaraderie, competition, and brotherhood. However, one downside is constantly having to explain it to people who do not know what rugby is, which, in America, is quite a lot of people.
When someone sees that I play rugby, the conversation usually starts with “That's like football right?” I assume this connection is made because of the physical nature and similar ball shapes of both sports. Rugby can be explained in relation to football to a point. In both football and rugby the goal is to get the ball into the end zone (football) or try zone (rugby). Unlike football, though, rugby is a continuous play sport without downs and stoppage.Read More
For the next twelve weeks, get used to seeing my name: I’m Will Woznicki, younger brother of Sara. Sara and Cazey have been kind enough to take my under their wings as an intern for As Told Over Brunch. Currently, I’m entering my senior year at the University of Connecticut. In the three years I’ve worked at two bars, played on the rugby team, and made many friends. I’m looking forward to sharing some of these stories with you.
Since childhood, I’ve been a UConn fan. I can blame my parents seeing as they both graduated from UConn themselves. As kids, my parents brought my sisters and I to Storrs, where UConn is located, whether it was to visit the Dairy Bar or watch the women’s basketball team have open practice.
If we were home, we watched the men or women’s basketball team. I grew up in a UConn household, complete with our “lucky nachos.” My dad started a tradition, where we’d have to each nachos during the game, which would clearly lead the Huskies to victory.Read More
