Pizza Wars Ready to Rumble in Wallingford

by Harriman Real Estate on November 15, 2013

2013 Pizza Wars at Villa CapriPizza: from the Latin pinsere, meaning “to press”. No matter what the etymology of the delicacy is, to those who love it it means, “Good God, let’s eat!”, and on November 21st pizza lovers can unite under one roof to do just that.

On that date, Wallingford’s Villa Capri Restaurant will once again host Pizza Wars, the area’s epic battle for pizza pie supremacy, from 5:30pm to 7:45pm. Six pizza shops from Wallingford and Northford are currently scheduled to gather together and bring their best creations to share with the public.

Here is a list of this years entrants:

(And there still may be more signing up; if so, I will update this post ASAP)

Pizzas will be judged by a panel of elite judges (not yet determined) who will deliberate over crust, sauce, cheese, spices and toppings to come up with a winner in three categories:

  • Best Overall (Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice)
  • Best Cheese Pizza (People’s Choice)
  • Best Specialty Pizza (People’s Choice)

The Sisters Project of WallingfordEntrance fee for this grand event is $10, and there will be a DJ, a cash bar, and raffles. We’ve attended this event every time it’s been held, and can honestly say we’ve had some really good pizza, some really radical pizza, and a lot of fun! What makes this event even more special is that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a great local charity, The Sisters Project.

So give the Cook the night off and come on down to the Villa Capri and sink your teeth into some of the best pizza this side of Little Italy!

Some pizza facts:

  • Pizza is a Greek creation (but the Italians perfected it!)
  • In 1987, October was designated National Pizza Month
  • Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza each day, or 350 slices per second.
  • Approximately 3 billion pizzas are sold in the U.S. each year.
  • Most popular topping: pepperoni
  • Least popular topping: anchovies
  • Sixty-two percent of Americans prefer meat toppings on their pizza, while 38% prefer vegetarian
  • 61% prefer thin crust, 28% prefer thick crust /deep dish, and 11% like extra thin crust.
  • More pizza is consumed during Super Bowl Week than any other week of the year.
  • The world’s largest pizza was built on October 11, 1987 by Lorenzo Amato and Louis Piancone. The pizza covered 10,000 square feet and measured 140 feet across. It weighed in at 44,457 pounds, consisting of, among other items, 18,174 pounds of flour, 1,103 pounds of water, 6,445 pounds of sauce, 9,375 pounds of cheese and 2,387 pounds of pepperoni. The pie was cut into 94,248 slices and eaten by more than 30,000 spectators at the baking in Havana, Florida.

Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce Hosts 2nd Annual Holiday House Tour

by Harriman Real Estate on November 14, 2013

Quinnipiac Chamber 2013 Holiday House TourHave you ever driven by a charming old house, perhaps an historic or luxury property, and said, “Wow, I’d LOVE to see what it looks like inside!”? I know I have, many times. To be able to see inside quaint, luxurious, or historic homes is a rare opportunity, and this year that opportunity can be yours.

On Saturday, December 7th, the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce will hold their 2nd Annual Holiday House Tour from 10AM to 4PM at several amazing Wallingford homes. The event is sponsored by Fish Window Cleaning, and the houses are sponsored and will be decorated and manned by several area businesses, including Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Calcagni Real Estate, H. Pearce Real Estate, Keller Williams Realty, Attorney Lars Edeen, Boardman Silversmiths, Inc., Ferguson & McGuire, First World Mortgage, Marchetti, Brown & Bishop, North Haven Tile Carpet One Floor & Home, Right At Home, and Wells Fargo. The real estate agencies will also have the assistance of home stagers/interior designers, including Diane Hall (Interiors by Diane), Lisa Kegley (LRK Decor), Gwendolyn Rossi, Jennifer Napolitano (JN Design), and Rosemarie Preneta.

Here are the five homes that will be featured on the tour:

  1. 21 Turnberry Road
  2. 40 Cooke Road
  3. 215 South Main Street
  4. 50 Williams Road
  5. 560 North Main Street

Houses on the 2013 Holiday Hose Tour

Tickets for this amazing event are $20 per person and are available at the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce office located at 100 So. Turnpike Road in Wallingford. Tickets will also be available for purchase from the participating real estate agencies.

On the day of the tour, you can start at any one of the homes (a list of addresses will accompany your tickets). When you get to your first home, you will be greeted by a representative of the sponsoring real estate agency and receive a program for the event. The Wallingford Historical Society will be open that day as a respite stop and will be serving refreshments. In case of inclement weather, the tour will take place on December 8th.

Last year, this event was a fantastic way to usher in the holiday season, and I’m sure this year will be no different, so mark your calendars and get your tickets early. These homes are treasured by their owners, and we are grateful to them for sharing their homes with us. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce at (203) 269-9891 or email maribel@quinncham.com.

Support Local Wallingford CT Businesses on Small Business Saturday

by Harriman Real Estate on November 13, 2013

Support our local Wallingford businesses on Small Business Saturday!Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and once the turkey and stuffing and pies are all gone everyone’s attention will turn to those two other days that signal the start of the frantic madness that is the Holiday Shopping Season, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But sandwiched between those two hectic days there’s another, less well-known day that deserves just as much attention as its big brothers. Perhaps more.

This November 30th is Small Business Saturday®, a day to celebrate and support the local small businesses that boost the economy and invigorate neighborhoods across the country. Last year, over 100 million people came together to show local businesses how important they are to their communities, and this year should be even bigger.

In Wallingford, you can patronize a plethora of participating businesses, including J. Christian’s, Wallingford Frame & Art, AJ Canell Jewelers, and Images Heirloom Linens. For a map that shows all the participating shops, CLICK HERE starting on November 21st.

Harriman Real Estate LLC is proud to support Small Business Saturday, and we’re encouraging everyone to Shop Small® here in Wallingford and throughout Connecticut on November 30th.

Most importantly, get out there, Shop Small, and let’s make this November 30th, the biggest day of the year for small business.

To learn more, visit ShopSmall.com.

Wallingford home sales were down slightly in August losing, 2 units from July. Still, this was a 13% increase over August of 2012, but a 23% decrease from August of 2011. The average selling price for condos was up slightly in August, to just over $212,000, while the average sale price for single family homes dipped slightly to just over $324,000. After yoyoing between 4.375% and 4.5% for the past several weeks, thirty year conventional mortgage rates finally stabilized a bit and settled at 4.25%, while CHFA rates for first time home buyers rose to 3.5 percent.

Inventory levels dipped a little in April which, coupled with the decreased sales, were enough to keep Wallingford firmly in the balanced market it entered in January, with just a tad over 7.5 months of inventory now available. The real estate market is still healthy, but as predicted, interest rates have risen over the past few months, so buyers should continue to do their homework and be ready to act quickly if you find the right home for you, while sellers should keep their homes in tip-top showing condition and priced well to attract well-qualified buyers.
