The Seaport Association is in a year of celebration because the Sheffield Island Lighthouse is 150 years old. In addition to the upcoming Norwalk Oyster Festival that is taking place on September 7,8, and 9 featuring the headliner Steve Augeri, Journey’s former lead singer, they have also planned two very special events, including the 150 Gala Dinner on September 15 and, the Sheffield Island Isola Italiana Night that is taking place on Saturday, August 25 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
If you want to raise a salute to Sheffield Island, Connecticut’s maritime heritage, and your love of Italian food, this event is for you! The menu is classic Italian and includes antipasti, rigatoni marinara, meatballs, sausage, and garlic bread. This feast would not be complete without gelato, biscotti, and espresso! Although water and soda are provided, if you want to raise a toast or two, it is recommended that you bring your own bottle of your favorite vino!
Sheffield Island Isola Italiana Night offers you the chance to experience this beautiful island with 49 other guests – think of it as dinner on your own private island. The cost is $55 per person and includes the ferry ride to and from the island, a great Italian meal, and the chance to connect with old friends and to make new friends. As the Italian saying goes….Mangiare per vivere e non vivere per mangiare —Eat to live, don’t live to eat ! For tickets click here.
