Double Twister Ice Cream Shop is located at 164 White Street in Danbury and next week, they will open a second location in Southbury! Double Twister is known for their wide variety of homemade, decadent ice creams that have kept WestConn students coming back for more. Congratulations, Double Twister, I hope that your new venture is a success.

No, not the empty mail trucks, the steel that is going up behind them. They've FINALLY made some moves on the Holiday Cinemas project. Those huge mountains of dirt are getting pushed around, the foundation looks poured, and the steel girders are being welded into place.
