Nothing says "spring is here!" quite like the start of baseball season. And depending on where you go in Connecticut, you may find locals rooting for major league teams from New York or Boston. However, you will also find professional and minor league teams drawing fans to local ballparks all over the state—not just for the sports, but for family-friendly events that include music, food, giveaways and fireworks. Tickets are reasonable, the fun is contagious. And now that the capital city Hartford has its own team and a brand new ballpark, there’s never been a better time to enjoy America’s favorite pastime by cheering on Connecticut teams!

Let’s face it, sometimes we just want food that makes us feel good. Food that provides sustenance and warmth and fuels us to keep going when the days are short and cold. Whether it’s pizza, meatloaf, chicken and waffles, or stuffed baked potatoes, what each of us calls ‘comfort food’ might be different, but they share a commonality, in that they literally comfort us when we need it most.
I spend a lot of time dining out, and I’ve got a short list of spots I like to visit when my craving for comfort food strikes. Some will be familiar, others maybe less so, but each brings their A game and delivers some of the best ‘comfort food’ in the area.
