Summer is now in full blast and everyone here at WAC is looking to have some fun and enjoy the season. While some of us are lucky enough to have international travel plans, touring the hazy streets of Rome or drinking margaritas on a Mexican beach, others are enjoying the summer right here in Connecticut. Although many of us daydream about lounging on a beach in Thailand or partying in Spain during our work day, many of us have come to realize just how much international culture awaits us in our local towns and cities. Whether it’s sipping sangria at Barcelona in New Haven, checking out a Latin dance studio in Enfield, or eating kebabs at Tangiers in Hartford, the global community has extended its reach into Connecticut in amazing ways.
So, our question to everyone is…How are you experiencing international culture in Connecticut this summer? What are the restaurants, bars, museums, activities, films, and books that allow you to enjoy elements of the international community while never leaving the state? We look forward to hearing your thoughts, ideas, and stories!!
Feel free to continue the discussion at the WAC Happy Hour tonight at the Elbow Room in West Hartford from 5:30 to 7:30!
