On a gorgeous Indian summer night in October, Hartford’s Elite Squad got into the fall spirit with a throwback to homecoming at TD Homer’s. Donning red and white, yelpers savored an evening on the patio with autumn libations from Tenth & Blake and samples of the restaurant’s new seasonal dishes. Paul P summarizes the party best: “Local sports bar with complimentary beer, hard ciders and food samples from their harvest menu? Sign me up!”
Alfred F admits, “the harvest-themed food was something that I did not expect from a sports bar" and Paul P agrees: “the green harvest salad with pear, turkey, cranberries and walnuts, the turkey burger, five-cheese mac and cheese, fruit cobbler and pumpkin cheesecake were very well done and samples were plentiful.” Meanwhile, Sarah D “could have eaten twenty of those little bread bowls” filled with butternut bourbon bacon bisque. From pumpkin Harvest Moon and Leinenkugel Oktoberfest to two types of Crispin Cider, the libations flowed all night. Lindsay S is “totally obsessed with the Fox Barrel Cider" and says, "I'll definitely be picking that up that next time I'm at the package store.”
Guests had a blast with the homecoming photo booth and, going with the sports theme, showed their athletic sides. An incredulous Dan R asks “Did I see a Yelp human pyramid that looked like something you'd spy on those ESPN cheerleading competitions?” Yes, yes you did.
Thank you TD Homer’s and Tenth & Blake for an amazing evening of food, fabulous drinks and a fun throwback to high school homecoming! Read the stellar reviews here and take a peek at the photos from Nick Caito!''
