Sister Hazel is all about its fans. For more than a decade now the five members have been consistently touring to support their six studio albums and one live album. The band broke out in the late 90’s with its monster hit “All For You.” Since then the band has rocked out on water at their annual The Rock Boat and on the slopes at The Rock Slope. Now the band comes to rock Alive @ Five.

Coolers not welcome @ Stamford concerts

By Mark Ginocchio Staff Writer
Published June 20 2007
STAMFORD - Summer concertgoers are encouraged to bring their dancing shoes to Columbus Park when Alive @ Five returns this week, but they must leave their coolers at home.Citing a problem last summer with underage drinking and fake IDs, Downtown Special Service District officials said beverage coolers will be prohibited from the park this season as Sister Hazel kicks off the 12th annual Alive @ Five concert series at 5 p.m. tomorrow.

"Last year, people would bring their cooler bags, and then hand beer out to their underage friends," said Sandra Goldstein, executive director of the DSSD.The group collected more than 1,000 fake IDs over the six weeks of concerts last year, Goldstein said, "so this was the logical thing for us to do."The Parks and Recreation Commission approved the ban, which Stamford police support because it will help them with enforcement."Underage drinking is a concern of ours, and we certainly don't want it happening at Alive @ Five," Lt. Sean Cooney said. "It was becoming very difficult for us to enforce."During one show last year, police caught more than a dozen minors drinking, Cooney said.For tomorrow's show, checkpoints will be set up to collect cooler bags, Goldstein said. She expects some grumbling from concertgoers, but "we did some research and this is standard operating procedure," Goldstein said.This year's Alive @ Five is being promoted as the biggest yet. After Sister Hazel - which broke out in the mid-1990s with its hit "All For You" - performances will include the Neville Brothers, Colin Hay of Men at Work, the Subdudes, the New Cars featuring Todd Rundgren and the NYC Hit Squad.The series wraps up Aug. 9 with "American Pie" singer Don McLean.

It seems that Sundance is the place to be......



Went for lunch today with an old buddy pal from Darien. At first we were going to dine at Stamford Town Center. Well, not having much to choose from, we ventured out onto Broad Street. Lucky for us, we stumbled across Sundance Cafe. (right next to HSBC) Boy, was it hopping! It looks like the word is out on this new lunch time nook. With jazzy piano sounds playing, and comfy couches to lounge on, it was hard to go back to the office. All the sandwiches have real cutsie names; I had the "Darien" sandwich, and my friend had the "Shelton"--both were just super yummy. The "personalized" salad bar, where it is tossed to your pleasing, was quite popular. That will be my next choice, what'da think?

What's that I see? Tossed and Found sculpture?

Coming to work this morning, as I usually do, catching my eye was a BIG red sculpture at the edge of Latham Park @ Prospect Street.
It was a circle of striking red filing cabinets jetting out to the sky. The way they were put together left a huge a hole in the middle--just perfect to peek through. (I am not describing it as well as it looks, cause you'd have to see it to be really "wow'd". )

As I continued my morning journey, I noticed another. It was a giant sized girl, with crazy wild hair, holding cat in front of People's Bank on Bedford. Another "wow".

It seems like sculptures are popping up all over downtown! I plan to take a stroll at lunchtime to spy some more. How about you?
