We went out to celebrate our son’s 22nd birthday.
My wife had suggested we go to this place called Harborview Market in Fairfield a mere 12 minutes from our house.
She had to take our youngest to visit the dentist so she called me to make sure I got there early to see if I could get us a table.
You see, Harborview Market is just that, a Market that has a bunch of tables with a large collection of what looks to be chairs that have been gathered through tag sales.
Every chair is different…
When I got there, the place was jam packed and I had to park my car about a block away, on a rainy day.
I asked in front if I could reserve a table for 10 people and they informed me that they didn’t take reservations. All I could do, was wait and hover over the tables until one was available.
That took about 45 minutes…
My brother-in-law arrived with his wife and daughter, as well as my son and his girlfriend. I asked them to hover over some tables to see if one of us got lucky.
In the end, it paid off as we started to sit with some strangers in the hopes that when they left we will have the table to ourselves.
When we were about to settle in two tables, my wife arrived with my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law, and of course, she saved the day!!
She managed to wrangle a family that was leaving and we all sat at this antique round table ready to eat.
We started with some delicious Croissants that my wife had ordered ahead of time, and then everybody ordered their own thing. My choice was a wonderful Cuban Sandwich that turned out to be huge and AWESOME!.
We had coffee, Juice and talked just about everything and everybody had a great time.
We got to meet the owner of the place as he came over to our table and introduced himself. He was extremely nice!. We later found out that he his originally from Cuba, but was raised here and he spoke Spanish fluently.
Everybody left with a full stomach and a smile on their faces. We definitely have to come back to Harborview Market!.
