Frosty & Flagrant Frigid Follows Fall in Friendly Famous Wooster Square

Hold the Horror, Honorable Hanamians 

Fantastic Fall Fades Fast

Our World Famous Sakura's delight us for about 7 months, before taking a Sensationally Sinfully Sweet Sakura Sleep for the next Piercing Polar Pentamerous Periods, Pre-Pink Nation. Fortunately Fine Folks, history here readily repeats. We should have our Historic Pink and White Fantastic Flowery Frenzy towards the end of April. The Blossom Blog Mainframe uses a complicated formula of history and weather (and a dart board) to come up with the dates for 2014 for Peak Poppadge as April 25 through April 29. Since the Blossom Blogs existence, it has a 100% accuracy of Picking our Perfect Pretty Precious Pink Peak People! 
(I take photos everyday so if you follow the blog you will always know how far along, or how far gone.)

So While the Whole Wide World Waits for our Wooster Square Wonders to Wake, I will continue to keep you up to date on our Salient Super Sweet Sakura Square, Simultaneously Silly Sometimes, certainly.

Last week's post was overly wordy, according to my wife and creator of the 
Wooster Square Blossom Blog
the World's best Photoblogumentary on World Famous Historic Wooster Square. 

So a simple hunt for some local news and people of interest as we head off the chill, check out some photos in Wooster Square and New Haven from the last week.

While perusing the Cherry Blossom information necessary to the Blossom Blog Mainframe's important data base, I came across an interesting article about Cherry Tree Bark, which is made into little bowls, or caddies. The process is an ancient Samurai practice.


Speaking of ancient, have you seen the new Yale School of Management's Wizard of OZ-like new Headquarters going up on Whitney Ave?

To say the building is impressive is an underhanded understatement. Its Glorious Glass Gleams Glowingly.
But what is more cool is what is going on inside! They are installing artworks by Sol LeWitt.  Check out this video, "Jock Reynolds, director of the Yale University Art Gallery, and John Hogan, installation director and archivist at the Yale University Art Gallery, discuss the project in front of the artwork in process that will be formally unveiled at the opening of the new building in January." (Yale News)

Want Cheese?!?!

Former neighbor and Wooster Squarian 
Jason Sobocinski and his restaurant and 
Cheese Shop Caseus in New Haven 
just received more accolades! 

Food Republic just named Caseus as one of the top 10 fromageries in the United States People! 

Not only do we have the best pizza in the United States, we New Havener's know our cheese. If you love cheese, food and fun, then head to New Haven and Caseus!



Speaking of Food and Fun!

Gloria & Jacques Pepin 
Cheryl Szczarba and Bart Connors Szczarba

Cheryl and I dined at Briq in New Haven with 
Jacques Pepin and his wife Gloria 
(and Precious Pretty Pleasing Polite Poodle Paco!)




Jacques and Gloria donated their time, Cheryl and I donated some cabbage to the Taste of New Haven/No Kid Hungry and the fine friendly fond hosts of Briq donated their delicious food and service. 

Thanks Jacques and Gloria!

Thanks Briq Restaurant!
