Black Eyed Sallys BBQ & Blues
350 Asylum Street

One heck of a bowling good time. Order your delivery pizza and bowl the night away. Open 24 hours.
City Steam Brewery Cafe
942 Main Street
While enticing from the outside, two experiences yielded cold food - however tasty. The staff was very polite, but I believe they have some kitchen issues.
750 Main Street
Emperor at the Linden
10 Capitol Ave
Feng Asian Bistro
93 Asylum St
Expensive but good. Considered better than most Asian restaurants in Hartford. Save room for dessert.
Hot Tomato's Hartford
1 Union Place
185 Glastonbury Blvd
Private room dining. Get the meat mixer for a great selection of their finest meats.
350 Roberts St
Good place to go for the after work crowd. Try the Jalapeno Chimi Minis.
140 Glastonbury Boulevard
Excellent Italian food and atmosphere. Sometimes you need reservations.
Max's Tavern at The Basketball Hall of Fame
1000 West Columbus Avenue
Excellent food just like at the series of Max's restaurants. Interesting martini concoctions as well. If you are downtown Hartford, just eat at Max's.
960 Main Street
The lobby of this old building is awesomely Art Deco. Fits perfect for the jazz.
Mohegan Sun Casino
1 Mohegan Sun Blvd
Best Indian Casino. Just as nice as the Wynn in Las Vegas...actually better because I left with money in my pocket.
Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame
1000 West Columbus Avenue
Would like to actually go, but they open at 10am and close at 4pm during the week. Wish we worked those hours. Maybe they could do the European thing and close late on a Wednesday or Thursday.
Ruth's Chris Steak House
2513 Berlin Turnpike
Sheraton Hotel & Spa
100 East River Drive
The hotel I'm staying at. Great sleeper beds and it always helps to stay at "club level".
Shish Kebab House of Afghanistan
36 LaSalle Road
Wow. This West Hartford treat is hidden on a side street. The spices blend to perfection on the kebab.
10 Constitution Plaza
Italian. Nice atmosphere inside, and great place to eat on patio when weather is nice, and fountain is sloshing around. Calamari and shrimp did not last long at our table.
The Ambassador of India Restaurant - Glastonbury
2333 Main Street
The Cookhouse Cafe
221 Governor's Street
If you need good barbecue, this place comes recommended as the best BBQ in Connecticut. They even brew their own beer.
The Elbow Room
986 Farmington Ave
Great rooftop bar and dining area with yummy food. The bread basket did not last long at our table on the first nice day of Spring.
103 Pratt Street
Great Caribbean food! We had a private booth upstairs with big couches, lots of amazing art, and great music. The drinks here are great - green tea pomegranate martinis, chocolate martinis. I also had the shrimp quesadillas and finshed off with a Tawney Port. Very soulful - would definitely like to come back here.
The Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center
299 Page Boulevard
Shoot off some steam here, literally. Very professionally run range, where range officers assist shooters.

Windsor Locks - BDL - Bradley International

Nonstop flights on Northwest to Amsterdam start July 1. I guess that makes it an international airport.
