Let’s Get Active in February

Love is in the air out in Westport and it is time to get all your plans in order. Forest Park and Advisors Living will be here and will also do all it can do to make sure this is one of the best Valentine’s Days ever. The most important thing to have on Valentine’s Day is a great restaurant to enjoy the company of your loved one.

A perfect place for you to enjoy a peaceful night out with your partner would be Merrill’s. This is one of the area’s newest waterfront restaurants and it is apparent that a crisp water view can’t be beaten. Having a harbor front restaurant give all customers a unique experience as they have a front row view into one of the country’s most valuable fishing port. The aesthetic of having such tranquil view while you eat creates nothing but loving vibes. The best part of this restaurant is that the scene isn’t the best part about it; the food is to die for. It’s very possible to begin the night with some tasty appetizers like crab cakes, clams casino(cherrystone clams), lobster quesadilla and even calamari. If seafood is more of a niche for you, then check out the raw food bar which consists of shrimp cocktail, ocean platter(oysters, and jumbo boiled lobster and enjoy all of it before you fill up on the grilled cuisines. Their menu also consists of items that are more appealing to vegetarians as well. This restaurant is well-known for its delicious pasta and you surely won’t be disappointed if you give it a try. Afterwards, take a deep dive into their wine collection, special cocktails and Draft Beers. This would be the perfect way for you to spend your Valentine’s Day.

Comedy During Love Season:

Take this chance to catch a great comedy show in Westport.  The infamous Lenny Clarke, a Cambridge native will be performing here in Westport. Lenny Clarke was born and raised in the Cambridge area before attending UMASS Boston and funding himself by working as a janitor. By the mid 1980’s Lenny had become one of the most famous comics from Boston, working alongside Sam Kinison, Denis Leary, Don Gavin and Steve Sweeney touring the country. By 1990, Lenny started his own sitcom Lenny(1990) and was able to appear in other TV shows as well. From 2004 – 2011 Lenny Clarke appeared in the recurring role of Uncle Teddy on FX comedy-drama ‘Rescue Me’. Since then he had recurring roles on Burn Notice& ‘Are You There Chelsea’ with Chelsea Handler. This would be the perfect way to spend an evening with your friends and family, especially after Valentine’s Day season is over. Check out all necessary details for this amazing event, here. Come watch a great show and get laughs that’ll carry over long after the show is done.

Summer is around the corner and what better time to get in shape than the months leading into that time of the year. Westport has just presented the perfect opportunity for you and your family to get active outdoors. Joins some other individuals for a morning trek along the beach loop trail – all the way to the channel that feeds Allens Pond – in snowshoes! Make sure to plan on enjoying a coastal trek of approximately 2 miles and winter wildlife viewing while remaining high and dry on top of the snowpack. Isn’t it always exciting to experience wildlife in its natural habitat? During the hike, you’ll have the chance to look for signs of animal activity through tracks, scat and other tell-tale signs. Afterwards, you’ll be able to scan the skies for migrant snowy owls and winter waterfowl. This is an opportunity you wouldn’t want to miss out on.

Although February is almost over, the fun is just beginning! Forest Park and Advisors Living is here to make sure you are always busy enjoying yourselves in such a great neighborhood.
