Connecticut restaurants, tourist attractions on display on Capitol Hill

Washington – The Connecticut State Society, a club that allows people from Connecticut (especially those working on Capitol Hill and for federal agencies) to socialize together, is hosting an event Tuesday to showcase the state’s food producers, restaurants, breweries, tourist attractions, and other businesses .

Held in the cavernous Kennedy Caucus Room in the Russell Senate Office Building, Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy hope “Discover Connecticut” will become part of the taste-of-the-state tradition in the Senate.

Marco Pizerria, Pez candy and the Cambridge House Brewing Co., Starwood Hotels and the Mark Twain House and Museum are among the 25 businesses promoting themselves in Washington today.

“I look forward to welcoming guests to ‘Discover Connecticut,’ and I hope they leave the reception with a better understanding of why I am so proud to represent this great state,” Blumenthal said in a joint statement with Murphy.
