Then, low-wasted jeans went away, but now I hear they are hot again. Even hotter than the second coming of low-wasted jeans is the bubble brunch experience. What the hell am I talking about? Bubbles baby, bubbles.

When COVID-19 was wreaking havoc over the service industry and lawmakers were scrambling to keep people safe, we were introduced to these outdoor/indoor bubbles. In an effort to keep diners separated from other diners, COVID restrictions were set in motion that forced restaurants to pivot. If restaurants wanted to stay in business, they needed to purchase or create these warm, COVID-safe zones.

When restrictions were lifted, most of the dining bubbles went away. However, a few innovative restaurants, eateries and even vineyards have continued to use them as additional, trendy seating areas. I only know this because my wife and I rented a bubble at Aquila's Nest Vineyard in Newtown, about a month ago. If you can find a way to make customers happy while dining outside, in February, you're doing something right. It wasn't just a little bit of fun, it was a blast.

Ever since we had that experience, I'm constantly seeing social media posts with customers raving about their evening in a bubble. One Danbury restaurant is making it more than just evenings, Puerto Vallarta was just featured on a foodie Tik Tok page for their bubble brunch.

Look, I'll eat brunch in a tractor-trailer if it's good, just tell me there is bottomless mimosas and Bellinis and I'll see you there.

Some of the Best Danbury Area Brunch Spots According to Expert 'Brunchers'

My wife Erica has been to more brunches in the last month, than you've probably been to in the last four years and I'm no slouch either. This is one of the ways we like to treat ourselves, and an activity we both love.

So, we've had the meals, drank to the bottom of the bottomless mimosa barrel and now we present to you, Some of our Favorite Danbury area brunch spots.

Shelton Rec Center is the Site of a Decommissioned U.S. Missile Defense Base

The recreation center on Mohegan Road in Shelton, CT is all fun and games now but was once the site of some serious business. Shelton is not the only town in CT with a frightening Cold War past, Ansonia and Fairfield boast similar remains.

Vacant Brookfield Properties Give Me the Creeps

Brookfield Connecticut is a beautiful New England town with picturesque landscapes and architecture. It does have one section of road that is about a mile long, that time has forgotten. When the highway got extended, the life started to drain from this portion of Federal Road and COVID-19 put the finishing touches on any business that was hanging on for dear life. There are supposed to be people in these places, that's why they were made. The absence of humanity in these spaces makes them tragic and chilling.

Alleged UFO Images from All Over CT

These folks claim to have spotted UFO's in the sky over CT. Some are a downright jokes, others are hard to explain away and a few will give you the chills.
