After AQUAVIT, we headed back to CT to hang with my parents and just chill in the country. That evening's dinner was had at the Connecticut-only, king of fast food chains: DUCHESS. If you've never had Duchess before, I suggest you get in your car and head to Connecticut now. You don't know what you're missing! The chicken sandwiches, chili cheese dogs and double cheeseburgers with fried onions cannot be passed up! Their food is backed by the Cebulski family money-back guarantee!
We got up bright and early the next morning and skipped breakfast before running a few errands because we knew we needed our appetites later that afternoon as we would be eating our fill at the Milford Oyster Festival!
We began with a few cold brews as we got the lay of land then started with some friend clams stips and a dozen clams on the half-shell. This was all a warm-up to keep us heldover as we waited for the fresh oysters. It was a long line but well worth the wait. 10 different kinds of oysters to choose from, opened right in front of you. One dollar per oyster, take as many as you like. Mutsumi and I went to town and filled up with a two of each variety.
And those twenty slowly but surely disappeared!
