Flights of Fancy

Meeting with my dissertation committee….I also sort of love how dead behind the eyes I look in these photos. Oops. I assure you, I am getting enough sleep, I do not have a drug problem, and I am not mad at everyone. I’ll work on the facial expressions for next time.

And for my New Haven and surrounding area readers, Friday, July 29, marks of the return of Flights of Fancy! Flights of Fancy is Downtown New Haven’s popular wine tasting and shopping event and kicks of at 4 pm at the Study Hotel.

Registration is $10 and includes the exclusive Flights of Fancy wine glass, a map of participating shops, entry into the grand prize drawing, validated parking, coffee and dessert.

Once registered, participants sample fine wines provided by The Wine Thief (181 Crown Street) and receive 25% off their favorite item at participating stores in the Broadway and Chapel shopping districts. A special Flights of Fancy bus will be available to shuttle participants between the shopping districts throughout the evening.

At 8:30 pm, attendees return to the Study Hotel for Willoughby’s coffee, dessert, and a grand prize drawing for a complimentary stay for two at the Study Hotel.

Participating merchants include: Ashley’s Ice Cream, Barnes & Noble Bookstore at Yale, Blue State Coffee, Campus Customs, Celtica, Claire’s Corner Copia, Denali, derek simpson… goldsmith, Enclave, Froyoworld, GANT Campus Store, Hull’s Art Supply & Framing, idiom, Metaphore, Owl Shop, Peter Indorf Jewelers, Thali Too, Thom Brown, Tracy b, Trailblazer, Wave Gallery, Willoughby’s Coffee & Tea, and Yurway Designs.
