Move over 5 Guys and Shake Shack, there’s a new homegrown alternative in town: Station Eats, offering juicy hamburgers, delicious veggie burgers, and snappy hot dogs built with healthy and all-natural ingredients. Also on the menu are Sloppy Joes, healthy salads, fries, and even milkshakes. You can see the full menu here. The burgers are made from grass-fed beef, the low-fat chicken hot dogs are made from all natural, cage-free chicken, and only hormone free and anti-biotic free milk from local farms are used in the milkshakes… Hey, even the fries are organic!
Familiar to many, Station Eats originally opened just over two years ago in downtown New Canaan, Connecticut as The Filling Station Co., and after much success and a name makeover has just opened a new restaurant in downtown Stamford. Its Landmark Square location makes it easily accessible from many downtown locations including the mall, both movie theaters, and many bars, stores, and public parking areas. You can find it on Atlantic Street directly across from the Palace Theater, a well-known Stamford landmark. It’s set slightly back from the road and up a short flight of stairs, but you can’t miss their large neon sign (pictured). Read more »
So remember how we wrote about The Fez a couple months back and said the music was great but we’d never tried the food? Well, we tried the food and it was delicious!

To be honest I really have no idea what is in store for me for St. Patty’s this year. This tradition typically lasts for at least three days, and not all in a row. New Haven is having their parade this March on the 11th, which is a Sunday — so if you have one of those nine-to-five jobs you may want to plan ahead and call out, or plan to not get drunk. However, I will not get caught up in all the booze-ahol and drinking that will be done… No, this article is about fashion, and here I am to give you some ideas on St. Patty’s make-up. This concept of wearing green eye-shadow and liner is not to be feared; it’s not as if we’re planning on going out looking like 80s hookers, so hear me out or just check out the pictures!

Dictionary.com defines ‘eccentric’ as “deviating from the recognized or customary character, practice, etc.; irregular; erratic; peculiar; odd: eccentric conduct; an eccentric person.” My favorite word and concept, I use this a lot when describing myself. “I’m not weird, I’m eccentric! Ha!” This is the very reason for my love of Halloween; give me any cause to decorate myself majestically and I will have the bling and sparkly eyes all aglow. These looks are great, though mostly not too out there, but I do love the cat-eyes! Read more »

Pixie: Congratulations on debuting at #12 on the Billboard charts [with new album Venus Doom].
Ville: Thank you…
Pixie: Were you expecting that kind of success to happen?
Ville: Well… no. Obviously, we were hoping to get higher on the charts than with Dark Light, but you never expect anything to happen. That would be terrible, and a pain in the ass to expect too much. That’s the best way, and the easiest way, to ruin a day, to expect anything to happen. We just go with the flow and hope for the best. But we’re super psyched about it. That, and the ticket sales being really good for the upcoming tour. We can’t wait to get over there.
Pixie: How are you dealing with all the new fans, with the new influx after the success of the single and Projeckt Revolution? Read more »
If any of you read my last book review on James Tate’s A Worshipful Company of Fletchers, you know that I’ve readily admitted that I don’t do a lot of recreational reading. I won’t go into every reason why, but predominantly it’s because I spend a whole lot of my time writing, favoring a hands-on approach to literature. Lately however, I’ve been making strides to sacrifice some of my early bedtime to allow for a gander at printed text. I used to carry this fear that too much reading (especially in terms of poetry) might cause me to be a little too influenced by the styles and techniques of other authors. I’m still a bit concerned about it, but I’ve also convinced myself of the many positive attributes that recreational reading has and its ability to improve my writing skills. Some of the reasons are obvious, let’s face it. There have been countless statistical studies about the importance of reading and its beneficial factors on the human mind, and the soul. This article concerns itself with a specific valuable asset: the development of vocabulary. An extensive vocabulary is what poet Peter Richards’ has acquired, and his book of poetry entitled Nude Siren is blatant proof of this notion. Read more »
