I’ve been exploring and writing about Connecticut since 2006. After a decade, I began compiling CTMQ guides for each town in the state. I plan on “completing” Stafford CTMQ-style… as well as the other 168 towns, cities, and boroughs in Connecticut. That is the ultimate goal of CTMQ.
If I’ve missed anything in town or if anything has closed or changed, please let me know.

I “completed” Stafford in 2017 but new and/or previously unknown-to-me CTMQ-worthy places and things open all the time, so a town is never really “complete.” I will, of course, continue to visit and write about these new places and things.

Your celebratory meal should be at Basils Restaurant. Favorite of a lot of Staffordites. Try one of their burgers. My favorite is the bacon cheeseburger with fries, cole slaw and a pickle. Go when you can meet the owner – Alex Koulisis.

Let me know when you come to Stafford, hopefully I’ll have a homebrew on tap. I’d love to read a scathing review!
