School Days In Southington

PIC-0151There are certain events I’ve been doing for a l-o-n-g time. Tonight was an example. This was my thirteenth time emceeing the Connecticut Association of Schools Elementary Program Banquet.

That’s a mouthful!

Over 600 teachers and administrators were there. I try and visit each and every table.

This program cites grade schools for good ideas they’ve put into practice. Then, the ideas are shared. That’s a good idea in and of itself.

The whole thing takes place at the AquaTurf, an &#252bercaterer in the Plantsville section of Southington.

PIC-0152It’s a family owned business, and business must be good, because this place is really kept up nicely. It is just as clean and fresh as it was the first time I stepped into the place, over 20 years ago.

Now that I’ve moved past the nuts and bolts, there is one part of the AquaTurf that has always stood out to me – prime rib. At the AquaTurf, prime rib is served in Fred Flintstone sized slabs. It’s a little overwhelming.

One of the benefits of my job is the ability to just be able to walk in the kitchen to say hello. I took this shot of the prime rib getting cut into manageable slabs. The kitchen runs like a ballet. I suppose that’s the only way to serve hundreds at once… and with the food still hot.
