Happy Birthday to us! This week marks our 9th year scouring the CT Shoreline for the best of everything. I’ve written close to two thousand articles, eaten hundreds of meals in the name of The E List, and raced up and down I-95 to find the restaurants, shops, services, and cultural events that we think you’ll enjoy. If anything, The E List dispels the notion that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Who knew that after a career in fashion, I’d be fluent in Photoshop and Facebook? Behind the scenes, we’re always trying to stay on top of the ever-changing environment of technology and social media (BTW I finally succumbed to Snapchat). Believe it or not, it takes quite a bit of girl power to get this list out twice a week: writing, editing, checking and rechecking links, negotiating with advertisers, proofing, tweaking, and proofing again. And if it weren’t for my stellar team of Laura, Sarah, Erin, and Leslie, there would be no list. So, a heartfelt thank you to my lovely readers, loyal advertisers, and an incredible staff. We’ve got big plans for 2018, so stay tuned. Click here to read the entire newsletter.
