Restaurants from Stamford to Bridgeport will compete to determine who has the best chowder and soup in the county—and the public will be judges.

For a $5 donation at the door, guests are given an official spoon and ballot and sample both chowders and soups from some of the county’s best restaurants. They then vote on their favorites. Children under 12 are free and vote too. 

Last year’s competition had 10 different restaurants competing and the competition has been expanded to more than 20 this year.

Staples Senior’s Vet Day Tribute to Grandpa

WestportNow.com Image
Staples senior Devin Graber, 17, today paid tribute to his Air Force veteran grandfather Ray Graber at the Westport Town Hall Veterans Day ceremony. He said his grandfather narrowly escaped death when a Nazi bomb destroyed a London pub he had just left. “Grandpa’s physical injuries were minimal, yet the emotional toll the bombing took on him was permanent,” Devin said. “To his dying day, Grandpa was extremely reluctant about discussing his service…I may never learn the full extent of Grandpa’s time in the Air Force, but Veterans Day is an opportunity for me to pay him homage nevertheless.” He added: “All veterans, from those who sit before me to those looking down on us from above, are worthy of the highest gratitude anyone can offer.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
