She’s So Fine, My ‘49

The season for exotic vintage cars has begun. Lans Christensen will share some special items throughout the summer, including this award-winning 1949 Chevy truck, on display at the race track at Lime Rock Park for the Royals’ Garage Car Show over Memorial Day weekend.

frank.food company’s New Restaurant Is Frankly Good Food

Frank Way has found success in his newest venture, called simply frank. It opened May 12 on the West Cornwall, Conn., property that was known for many years as the Pink House (although it is now a more subtle shade of cream).

Fifty-five samplers from the collection of Alexandra Peters will be on display at the Sharon Historical Society & Museum from June 18. Many of the classic sampler styles are represented, including ones where young women learned their alphabets and basic stitching styles; and more complex ones that show geography and genealogy. Photo by Francesca Lally
