1) Sugar Cupcakery & Bakery
422-424 Main St.
Even though there are cupcake bakeries closer to my home in Middletown, I still have to drive down to East Haven to get my Sugar Bakery...
Seems like East Haven keeps finding new ways to demonstrate just how expensive, in both taxpayer dollars and civic reputation, a rogue police department can be.
Based on all available evidence (and that includes a federal civil rights investigation plus a stream of criminal convictions and lawsuits), the East Haven Police Department was an out-of-control disaster for years.
Now, the community is paying for it in what appears to be an unending series of bitter installments.
This week, it was the...

John Skok seemed poised to take a plea deal, accepting a year in jail for his part in a scheme that bilked a Montville woman out of her life savings, when the prosecutor brought the proceedings to a halt to accuse the defendant of being drunk in court. "It's been brought to my attention that you're under the influence," Assistant State's Attorney Lawrence Tytla said to Skok, 59, before the New London Superior Court. No word on how Tytla deduced this, but Skok (whose wife was already sentenced for the...
Let's hope no one in East Haven (or Connecticut for that matter) is gullible enough to believe that town's marathon racial-profiling-and-police-abuse nightmare is now over because of last week's guilty verdicts for two cops.
It is easy to understand why some might want to latch on to that sort of fantasy.
After all, this mess has triggered horrible national publicity; a federal civil rights investigation that uncovered years of wrongdoing; guilty pleas by two other officers; a court order for an...
New Haven is thought by many to be Connecticut’s top restaurant town, although the Gold Coast also offers a wealth of dining opportunities and Greater Hartford is definitely up and coming. Despite the strength of our dining scene, Greater New Haven took its hits during the recent economic downturn, and even though the economy is said to be expanding again, that hasn’t prevented some notable restaurant casualties.
Smaller dining concepts seem to be in vogue. Savvy restaurateurs look for ways...
You'd think that Rob Ford, Toronto's crack-smoking-oral-sex-denying-binge-drinking buffoon of a mayor, would be a tough dude to top in any screw-up contest for local politicians.
It's true that Ford's antics have provided an insane amount of ammunition recently for TV talk show comics and satirists. Still, Ford wouldn't necessarily be a stone-cold cinch for the title.
Connecticut, after all, has produced more than a few political idiots who might give Ford a run for his money in that sort of...
