If it were landscaping equipment, this wouldn’t surprise me. But $55,000 in jewelry and designer shoes? Winter’s hardly started and already the Cos Cobbers are spending like wild men.

Splurging on fashion in Cos Cob

Maid manages to find $55,000 in jewels and shoes to steal from a house on Cos Cob’s Valley Road.

Of course, I suppose it could have been a cache of all the neighbors’ valuables, perhaps to pay for a community above-ground pool. Still, color me surprised.

    And, as you can see from the mug shot, we makem cry during confession.

    The Cob likes to keep it messy on the outside so you don’t have a clue how nice it is on the inside. Kinda of like living in Westchester…but with nice people (fire away Richard!)

    Forget the Cob CF, you’ve got more interesting fish to fry up there in ME:

    Dude –

    Off topic, but did you see they rated The Homestead Inn as the best restaurant in Connecticut?

    Are they kidding me? I have been there numerous times, and I never thought it was anything special. Have they never heard of Swanky Franks? And what about the Black Duck in Westport? If you don’t want to drive that far, what about Burger, Shakes and Fries?

    Who writes these reviews? The Homestead isn’t even Top 10 in Greenwich. Do they even do brunch?

    • The list is a joke – 99% of the places are the most expensive in the state which is totally unrelated to being the best food. Agree that The Homestead Inn is mediocre at best. The place they chose for RI isn’t even on my radar, (a) because it’s in Newport and Newport sucks and (b) everyone knows all the really good eateries are owned by the Eyetalians in Providence.

      The one in Tennessee? Holy Cow – the Blackberry Farm is about the most expensive inn on the planet earth – they serve artisanal this, artisanal that, which means we can charge you up the wazoo. Most overused word in the gourmet world.

      • I took one of my girls -Kate? – to the Homestead years ago, when she was about 12, more to introduce her to formal restaurant dining than anything else, and the food was excellent and the service unobtrusive but mindful. We had a great time.
        That said, I don’t do the formal scene much anymore, so I can’t vouch for what’s out there.
        But the Homestead treated us very well that evening.

      Dougie’s in Port Chester should be near the top of the list. Their specialty:

    • Cos Cobber

      The ‘fee’ to win the award went to a sealed bid, dotcha ya know?

      • Libertarian Advocate

        Given who runs “Business Insider,” you are likely closer to the truth than you realize.

    Dougies uses Nathan’s hot dogs. How uninspired. I can do that myself at home.
