[Updated, 9/14/17] Thanks to some creative “out-of-the-box” thinking by Blue Back Square Marketing Director Elizabeth Zigmont, the third annual Best of West Hartford Awards Show will be held at Cinépolis Theaters in Blue Back, on Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Guests will walk the red carpet (sponsored by Daley Moving & Storage) as they enter the theater.

As the theme “Champagne on Ice” suggests, guests will mingle from 5:30-6 p.m. with a special surprise from UberDog, and no, it’s not a free puppy for everyone. Theater no. 5 will feature the Awards Show from 6-7 p.m. with some very special entertainment planned to break up the presentation portion.

And we must mention the food, or at least tease about it. While they finalize the exact menu, guests will be glad to know that Flemings Prime Steak House and Wine Bar is working on special plans for the event.

While watching for details and updates in each We-Ha.com newsletter, Tom Hickey, event coordinator, reminds us “there is a special group price for four or more tickets. Seating is limited and organizers are expecting a sell-out, so don’t be disappointed and buy your tickets today.”

Voting link is open until Monday, September 18 at noon. Please take a few minutes to show your support now!
