A message from Commissioner David Lehman:

Last week Governor Lamont and the Connecticut Restaurant Association announced the #CTDrinksOnUs campaign, which encourages and incentivizes residents to get vaccinated.

To take part in the promotion, customers simply show that they have received one or both doses of a COVID vaccine, at which point they can select from a list of pre-set drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) established by each participating restaurant.

The campaign, which runs from May 19–31, limits drinks to one per person and the purchase of food is required. A list of participating locations can be found at www.ctvisit.com/DrinksOnUs.

In just a few days since the announcement, the #CTDrinksOnUs page has had almost 90,000 views. More than 175 bars and restaurants across the state have already signed up and more are registering every day.

If you are the manager or owner of a bar or restaurant in Connecticut and want to participate in this program, click here to register. Please allow 1-2 business days for your name to appear on the #CTDrinksOnUs campaign page.

This public/private partnership is a great example of how we can work together to promote important public health and safety initiatives, while also supporting local businesses as we continue to reopen the state.

Here’s some exciting news about the Beardsley Zoo’s Amur Leopard “babies.”

The two are featured in the 2022 National Geographic Almanac.

The two Amur Leopards that were born at the Beardsley Zoo have been the main attraction for three years. The male is a typical leopard, brown with spots, while his sister is black, appearing to be a panther, rather than a leopard.
