What if you gave a (So. N.E.) Restaurant Week and nobody came?

Connecticut specifically in my case. I'm sure they may hold them in the wilds of Mass., but I haven't seen any mention of them recently.

I was surprised to discover today, a couple of days late (and $30 short) that Westport held their summer restaurant week last week. And Stamford the last couple of weeks (which I did hear about only because a friend invited me to Morton's out of the blue).

I'll admit I really like local restaurant weeks because it gives me the chance to try out places I'm curious about but can't really afford in this economy. But with the exception of Hartford & New Haven, I never see them mentioned online or in print enough in advance to consider attending one. Part of the problem is that I only see the Hartford & New Haven papers, but I never stumble across them online, either at foodie-themed sites like, oh, Chowhound.

So here's a request, and I don't consider it shilling for restaurants. If your town is holding a restaurant week in the near future, start a thread announcing it, hopefully with a link to a website with all the details, especially menus so that we can determine if it's worth the hike. And then, maybe, tell us about your experience at one of the participating places.

I'll start by flogging my hometown, Hamden, and the state itself in two new threads.
