Westport Fairpress (Newspaper) - June 23, 1976, Westport, Connecticut FAIRPRESS, Wednesday, June 23, 1976 8B Pink Tent Festival blooms One man show Internationally renowned abstract expressionist Don Fink has a one-man show of his works at Gallery 101, 101 Broad St., Stamford through June. Thursday, June 24, is launch day for Stamford’s eighth Pink Tent Festival of Arts, an expanded festival with a larger performing arts tent, special Bicentennial events and performances and a performing arts program. In addition to four nights and two full days of continuous performing arts programs, the Pink Tent Festival will offer a Flower Fantasies Tent featuring flower art in all media, and growing things; a large Artisan Crafts Tent displaying the old and the new in the crafts world; a Photography Tent with professional and amateur exhibits; and a small craft's tent filled with the work of Stamford’s senior citizens. The Ferguson Library Flyer will be on the grounds showing movies every evening. The Fine Arts Tent this year will have a new look. Artists from New York, New Jersey, Westchester and Fairfield County will fill a 50-by-100-foot tent showing and selling their works in the Greenwich Village style. There will be a separate tent for Fine Arts Demonstrations coordinated by Elsie Ralph with many local artists participating. A special Bicentennial touch will be the American Ethnic Heritage Tent in which 10 ethnic groups who are part of Stamford's present and past will tell Why we’ll never sell you a $5.95 steak for $3.95 It’s simple. We still buy the choicest cuts of aged beef available ... at the best market price. We then add a reasonable mark-up. A $5.95 boneless Sirloin Steak at the Peppermill is worth $5.95 If we charged $7.95 we'd be fooling you ... and you'd probably go somewhere else. At $3.95 we'd be fooling ourselves, and we d probably have to go somewhere else. At the Peppermill we don't fool around with quality, quantity or price! And that's no fooling. Open 5 pm daily Westport, Conn. 1700 Post Rd. E. (US 1) Greenwich, Conn. 1051 E. Putnam Ave. (US 1) the story of their contributions to America through artifacts, historical items, song and dance.
