If you were at West Hartford’s Besito Wednesday  you not only got a Bruschi eyeful, but some top shelf  tequila as well.

The recent New England Patriot Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Super Bowl champ,Tedy Bruschi, was spotted dining solo at the bar at South Main Street Mexican restaurant. 

Apparently in a celebratory mood, the former linebacker and now a game analyst for ESPN and a Boston station, bought shots of pricey Partida Elegante tequila ($45 a shot) for fans at the bar. 

He paired his  shots with crab cakes and filet mignon.  


Tune Into the Pats Game Tonight For Some Shiny Lapel, ESPN Style

Connecticut’s The Shiny Lapel Trio, will get some serious exposure tonight on ESPN.

Video of the group will open the Monday Night Football telecast with its song,  “RockaBetty Swing”  as the New England Patriots face The Houston Texans.  The band will be featured between 8:25 and 8:30 p.m. and again before the start of the second half.

This from ESPN:

“MNF producer Jay Rothman heard Shiny Lapel Trio perform at The Red House restaurant in Deep River, Conn., while on a night out with his wife in May.

He knew right away they would be perfect for a MNF open.

“They just have this fun swing, rockabilly sound, and they play everything from Sinatra to Stray Cats to Dire Straits,” said Rothman.“Their sound is feel-good fun, and they completely look and dress the part.”

The trio, which is actually a foursome: Tiger Marion (vocals), James Alio (guitar), Marc Iacobellis (bass) and Rich Talarzyk (drums), plays locally in the Connecticut shoreline area.

“Performing our own song, it’s a huge honor,” said Alio, who has been part of SLT since it formed about nine years ago.

An ESPN crew shot the video  at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, adding a horn section and some dancers and singers to give the setting more of a club feel.
