What’s Up Peekskill? Presidents.

abeSeven score and 17 years ago, one millinery inclined president-elect brought forth his great oratory to our rockin’ Peekskill forebears. Celebrate that moment this weekend at the newly minted Lincoln Depot Museum at the Peekskill Waterfront. C’mon down and be a part of history. After all, there’s the Drinkin’ with Lincoln Pub Crawl, despite that Honest Abe wasn’t much of a drinker… He did however bartend and own a tavern before he became a lawyer, lawmaker and of course the 16th Potus.

What’s Up Peekskill? Pumpkin Spice!

I never had a pumpkin spice latte, that venerable drink which debuted with Starbucks in 2003, and I hope I never will (its the color of our President’s spray tan). But does it really have to be everywhere? I’m surprised I don’t have pumpkin spice toilet paper. And by the way, pumpkin is not a spice, it’s a gourd. She was Ginger Spice, people, not Pumpkin Spice!
