TTD Business Pick (May/June): Ripka’s Beach Café

THE place to eat and enjoy the beach – all year long!

When Clyde Ripka, Owner of Ripka’s Beach Cafe opened the business in 2002, he envisioned it to be the place for everyone to enjoy. Clyde grew up literally in the water. “I ran a restaurant at 18 years old in Paia, Maui where I could walk out of the back door and jump in the water for a short surf session after serving breakfast, ” says Clyde. Ripka’s Beach Cafe serves fries, hot dogs, burgers, ice cream, and a raw bar for seafood.
Clyde says, “We will continue to draw locals in for our ‘Aloha Friday’ happy hour under the tent with music and specials.” Ripka’s
also gives back to the community through fundraising walks, working with the Norwalk Senior Center, and the schools. “I contribute
full chef meals for 8 to 30 people for several local organizations yearly. I’m also sponsoring cooking classes for ‘Star,’ a local charity helping handicapped children and adults. That was and is probably the most inspiring thing I do.” — Clyde R.

TTD’s Summer Concerts Great music and dancing at Calf Pasture Beach!

The Third Taxing District FREE summer concerts have always been fun for the residents of Norwalk.

For more than 25 years, TTD has held these summer concerts at Calf Pasture Beach, averaging 200-300 people per show enjoying the amazing music. Do the math! Assistant General Manager of TTD, Ron Scofield, has been in charge of arranging the concerts for the past 20 years. Ron says, “I look forward to planning the concerts because of the enjoyable experiences that our concert-goers have each year. This is really to give back to the East Norwalk community. Each and every concert attracts people from all over Norwalk and beyond, many of whom spend their time dancing on the grassy fi eld, right in front of the Showmobile.” This year there will be eight Sunday concerts. Each Sunday concert starts at 5pm and is a great event for individuals and families. The mix of music for 2019 is rock, jazz, country, oldies and tribute bands.
