The restaurant Connecticut Magazine has named the best in Hartford in the past isn't only a great place to eat but it's also apparently a terrific venue for live music, and today (Sunday, July 14) the genre is an American cultural gem, Bluegrass.
Dick Bowden writes in Bluegrass today, "From the home of Colt’s Patent Firearms, Mark Twain and America’s insurance industry — Hartford, CT — comes an intimate Sunday afternoon bluegrass club experience at the award-winning Firebox Restaurant. Located at 539 Broad Street, in the shadow of the gold-domed state capitol, The Firebox is the old boiler room section of the 19th century Billings Forge metal-working complex which occupies a full city block."
