KentPresents 2017


During the last week of July, my wife Aimée and I attended the 3rd annual KentPresents “ideas festival” in Kent, Connecticut. Conceived and hosted by our VDP hosts, Donna and Ben Rosen, KentPresents was a spectacular weekend of inspiring speakers, interesting and timely topics, an intimate format along with the opportunity to see old friends, make new friends and enjoy the beautiful town of Kent. For the 3rd year in a row, we stayed at the Fife ‘n Drum Restaurant & Inn (53 N Main Street) owned and operated by Elissa Potts, second-generation proprietor. The Fife ‘n Drum was not only a very convenient place to sleep but provided us and our friends with a great bar (we New Orleanians do like a cocktail) and a very nice restaurant. In addition to the Fife ‘n Drum, we had a great dinner at Gifford’s (9 Maple Street). Finally, I cannot say enough good things about the KentPresents festival. Aimée and I strongly encourage anyone who has not attended to do so in 2018; for those who have attended, we hope to see you back in Kent next summer.
