You can listen to a free concert by Nate Reit on the trombone starting at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday at St. Paul's on the Green, 60 East Ave. "Donations gladly accepted. A light lunch is available for a $5 donation following the recital." -- from an event listing on Norwalk Patch.

"People are now obsessed with games on their smart phones, but there was a time in the late nineteenth century when board games were all the rage. This fad will be explored at an upcoming lecture at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum entitled, Chromolithography and the Golden Age of Board Games. This lecture, which will be presented by Margaret K. Hofer, Curator of Decorative Arts at the New-York Historical Society, will be held on [Wednesday] Oct. 9, 2013. The presentation begins at 11:00 AM at the Museum, located at 295 West Avenue in Norwalk. To reserve a seat, please contact the Mansion at 203-838-9799 ext. 4. [...] The lectures are $25 for members, $30 for non-members. The price includes lecture, lunch and mansion tour." -- from an event listing on New Canaan Patch

"Lauded as one of the most influential events in the history of American art, The International Exhibition of Modern Art in 1913—popularly known as the Armory Show—was the first large exhibition of modern art in the United States, and one that introduced astonished Americans to European 'avant-garde' artists such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Paul Cézanne. [...] Beginning [Wednesday] Oct. 9, the Greenwich Historical Society will present 'The New Spirit and the Cos Cob Art Colony: Before and After the Armory Show,' which for the first time shows the direct impact of the Armory Show on the Cos Cob art colony artists." -- from an event listing on Greenwich Patch

You can get up to 56 percent off of your bill at Aladin Indian Bistro, 36 Westport Ave. with this Groupon offer. The deal gives you a dinner for two for $35 or a dinner for four for $75. It's hard to say from the website when this deal actually ends, but you get 120 days to go there after you pay. As always, understand the fine print and don't buy it and forget to go. (This is not an advertisement and Patch gets nothing by alerting you to the Groupon deal.) Groupon also has offers for these other Norwalk restaurants (links go to the Groupon page): Paella Tapas Wine Bar and Restaurant, Pontos Taverna, Café Turnier, Silver Star Diner, and YoBamba Cafe.
