    It’s almost that time again…time for Connecticut’s only statewide restaurant week! The Connecticut Restaurant Association and Sysco Connecticut are gearing up for Connecticut Restaurant Week 2014, October 13-19.  This year’s CT Restaurant & Beer Week is going to be a little different, and in our opinions, a whole lot better than ever! We are joining forces with our friends in the beer industry to help promote Connecticut Craft Beers during CT Restaurant Week.
