5 Things We’re Loving This Summer


Serendipity’s July/August issue is on stands now! Get to know our cover girl, Abby Elliott, star of Bravo’s new television series, Odd Mom Out, which is quickly becoming the most-talked about show of summer. We’ll also present the winners of our 3rd annual Locally Made awards, which highlight the best goods—from clothing to spirits—made right here in Fairfield and Westchester counties. Warm weather also means tending to your garden (we have all the accessories you need) and fun road trips (we have five scenic destinations to map out—and new cars to drive there in). And as we gear up for the 2016 Greenwich Wine + Food Festival, Chopped star Alex Guarnaschelli gives us some of her favorite recipes.
