Among those dancing at tonight’s Levitt Pavilion performance by Connecticut’s Mill River Band were Edie and Sam Anderson of Westport, town residents for 30 years. “It’s the first time we’ve heard the Mill River Band and we’ve been ‘rockers’ for a long time,” said Edie. “Tonight was our first visit to the Levitt this summer even though we’ve attended performances every summer ever since we moved here (in 1977).” Only seven nights of free Levitt concerts remain before the season ends on Sunday, Aug. 29, with the Fairfield Counts swing band.

Cocoa Michelle Closure: Sweet Memories But Sour Note

By James Lomuscio

Barista Jessica Kerch was busy serving up truffles and cappuccinos Friday when questions came from the curious who breezed through Cocoa Michelle at 190 Main St. in Westport.

Coca Michelle regulars, including Jim Fine (hat) of Weston, were sad to see the Main Street store close. “We have come to rely on it,” he said. “I’m furious.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

“Today’s the last day?” a woman asked. Kerch nodded.

“What are you going to do with all the chocolates?” the woman continued. “Any discounts?”

Kerch confirmed that it was the last day of operation for the chocolate seller and cafe, but there would be no discounts.
