Restaurant Week, Downtown Bookstore, and Basketball Bring Fall Fun to Fairfield

From October 21 – 27, more than 30 restaurants in Fairfield will offer special lunch and dinner prix fixe menus, or other special promotions.

From enjoying top-notch meals at some of the best restaurants Fairfield has to offer, to meeting a New York Times bestselling author, Fairfield is teeming with tons of fall events.

The leaves in Fairfield are falling as quickly as the days are passing, but that doesn’t mean there is any shortage of fall fun coming up in the latter half of the season. From enjoying top-notch meals at some of the best restaurants Fairfield has to offer, to meeting a New York Times bestselling author, Fairfield is teeming with tons of fall events.
 
From October 21 to 27, Fairfield’s food scene will come alive with eager diners and scents of delectable food, all thanks to Fairfield Restaurant Week. More than 30 participating restaurants will offer multi-course, prix fixe menus for lunch ($10-$20) or dinner ($20-$35), or offer guests a special discount throughout the week. With restaurants like Brick Walk Tavern, Little Pub, Bodega Taco Bar, and more all offering special options for the week, the only difficult part about the week will be deciding where to eat.
 
If enjoying Restaurant Week doesn’t fill up Fairfield foodies, the Fairfield Museum & History Center, in conjunction with Experience Fairfield, is presenting the exhibition, “From the Ground Up: Fairfield’s Foods,” through January 5, 2020. With a focus on how food shapes cultural traditions, local landscapes, and global economies, this newly-launched exhibition will explore how local foods are important to Fairfield traditions and how they’ve shaped our regional identity over time.
 
Fall in Fairfield is also about a different kind of food — candy! That’s because the Fairfield Museum & History Center is also hosting Halloween on the Green on Sunday, October 27 in their Museum Commons at 370 Beach Road. From noon to 4 p.m., the area will abound with trick-or-treating, live performances, bounce houses, hayrides, and a costume parade. Also in attendance will be a variety of food trucks, including Cousins Maine Lobster, Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes, Super Duper Weenie, and more.
 
While October is quickly coming to a close, November poses another round of exciting area attractions to continue the fun all season long.
 
Fairfield University’s own Downtown Bookstore — in partnership with Pequot Library — will host author Sonia Purnell on Sunday, November 3. From 4 to 5:30 p.m., Purnell will sign and read from her New York Times Bestseller, A Woman of No Importance, which tells the tale of one of the true unsung heroines of World War II, Virginia Hall. For more information on all upcoming events, be sure to follow the Fairfield University Bookstore on Facebook.
 
Just two days later on November 5, Fairfield University’s men’s and women’s basketball teams tip off their seasons, with the men opening their season at Webster Bank Arena in a showdown again Bucknell University. Meanwhile, the women’s season begins with some high-energy play as they square off against Temple University on the road in Philadelphia.
