Local Friends for

Local Business


A bit of history... 2018

** October to December **

If you're wondering what kind of activities Local Friends for Local Business has focused on, this is the best area to look at.

Below you will find the history of the effort for this year**, including the details about the category from each month. (You can use the links at the end of this introduction to trace the program back to its start in January of 2012.)

Please keep in mind... Local Friends for Local Business is essentially a continuous work-in-progress. Any business names found on this page should not be interpreted as a pure recommendation. Consider the source... for instance, keep in mind that we cannot verify every person that has sent an e-mail or suggestion along for places they have visited and enjoyed. I'd love to say we have been to all of them. We haven't.

Every person is different... every business is different... and your experiences may vary. You have been so informed.

Plus... unfortunately... more than a few of the businesses we have visited have closed their doors. I decided to keep them listed -- In celebration of what they had been and what they meant to those that experienced them... and as a nod to the importance of your support. We are, quite literally, losing local businesses every day.

Look at this as a starting point. Details have been included here because someone -- mainly Terry and I, along with so many wonderful others -- far more often than not have enjoyed what we found. And, we wanted you to know.

Don't forget to look back...

2018 (January to September)

** Due to a difficulty with the pages, adjustments have been made beginning in October of 2018. Unfortunately, for now that has meant archiving 2018 in two separate files (January to September and then this page for October to December).

Egg Rolls and Wontons

Chinese food.

We are all passionate about the places we frequent. When it comes to egg rolls, chicken chow mein, beef lo mein, sweet and sour chicken, pork fried rice and more, there are our favorites… the very good… and the places we tolerate because we have a craving for General Tso’s and we want it now.

The differences between places can be amazing, from dining rooms to buffets to take out counters. The only thing for certain is that we love it.

Place(s) we visited: Han Palace in Warwick, Rhode Island

Places you visited or wanted to pass along: Oriental Star in Fayetteville, New York - Jade Garden in Danielson, Connecticut

*Worthy of note – I can confirm that this business has multiple locations
