Raise Your Flask To Cask And Barrel Bistro

A delicious menu and service to ease your trip

The delectable Cask & Barrel Bistro is a fantastic place to start your journey. With exceptional service and a diverse and delicious menu enjoy a culinary experience that will exceed your expectations for what an airport can provide. Their clam chowder offers seafood that is a testament to the kind of quality that New England crustaceans can deliver, but we have to say that our favorite aspect of their menu is the selection of craft beers that are available. They have six beers on draft, with a larger variety of New England and Connecticut brands for sale in bottles. The spot is also a great place to catch your breath and listen to some music with House of Marley Positive Vibration 2 On-Ear Headphones. These headphones are wickedly stylish, with a smooth frame highlighted with bamboo on the earmuffs.

After you’re done digesting your delicacy, expand your literary horizons and engulf yourself in the rich world of the written word, at Cover 2 Cover near gates 1-12. It’s already known that reading novels increases the number of neural connections in your brain, so why not take the downtime on your flight to put the world on hold for a couple of hours and travel to a completely different life. Even better, you could combine noise cancelling technology with the awesome (in the old sense of the word) power of novels to create an experience that is truly world-changing. Noise cancelling technology has fundamentally improved the listening experience in virtually all conditions, and the Phiaton BT 100 Noise Cancelling Wireless Earphones capitalize on fantastic new technology with innovative vibration technology.

You’ll feel a vibration every time you receive an alert, grounding you in reality even as you’re off on the desert-planet Arrakis in Dune, or trying to make sense of the harrowing legal mystification of Kafka’s The Trial. Buttons built directly into the earphones let you control your music and calls without even taking out your device, so you can enjoy your books, novellas, short stories, and maybe even some delicious airplane snacks without even having to take your phone out of your pocket. Let yourself melt away with the help of some top-notch books and top-tier technology.
