This week we filmed the 15th episode of Kate & Kurt at Basil’s Restaurant. I can’t believe we’ve done that many already, it seems like we just started. It all began with an idea, Kate’s idea, that we do something similar to Regis and Kelly or Better Connecticut with Scot Haney that showcases our wonderful little New England town. There are so many events, tons of sports, a very diverse art community, local bands, concerts, great local businesses, amazing people, and the list goes on. Well anyway, that’s how it all got started, I personally want to thank Kate for all the work she does, believe me when I tell you, this is a very time-consuming endeavor.
That’s enough sappy stuff, thanks again to Alex and Pete at Basil’s for letting us shoot there, head on down down every week day from 2pm to 5pm for Happy Hour, the atmosphere is great and the food rocks. We also got our weekly local weather report from Tocka and share some important info on upcoming events this weekend, including the Katy Waugh Bike Run this Saturday. My favorite part of this week’s show was our interview with MMA fighter John McLaughlin.
John grew up in Stafford and still lives and works here. He is fighting to defend his Reality Fighting championship belt this October 8th at the Mohegan Sun Arena against another young man who also grew up in Stafford, Jeff Haddad. Matt Bessette will also be on the card that night as he defends his championship belt as well. Hit the link here to see the interview we did with Matt a little while back——> Matt Bessette Interview. Watch the show below to see the interview with John. You can get tickets to the event from Matt, check at his website or friend him on Facebook (Matthew Bessette) or John. You can go right down to see John at Cumberland Farms in downtown Stafford Springs and get your tickets there. Good luck to both of them and let’s get out to support them in record numbers!!! I promised Matt 500 Stafford people so help me fulfill my promise.
