Winter Farmer’s Market Starts January 10, 2015

Start’s this Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at the Peekskill Field Library (wonder if there’s a late fee?)

 

A press release from the effort states:

 

<<The City of Peekskill announced that beginning January 10, 2015, the Peekskill Farmers’ Market, sponsored by the Peekskill Business Improvement District (BID), will have an expanded winter season. “The summer and winter farmers’ markets are important Peekskill family events,” said Jason Angell, Executive Director of the BID. He added, “The market introduces a wider audience to all that downtown Peekskill has to offer.”>>

Prohibition: Love it or Hate it

Either way,  come to Gleasons in Peekskill this Friday, December 5th, to celebrate its demise. What a stupid idea (prohibition,  that is)  in this poster’s opinion.

They’re adding some more prohibition-era cocktails to the menu, so come and enjoy.

Myfav will be added : the  Sidecar!R68-sidecar

After you go to the crazy cool art opening at 2nd Nature, of course!

Where else can you get a bacon, lettuce and mutton while knitting a scarf?  (Bacon, lettuce, and mutton not necessarily a real thing.)

But you can buy lamb and wool. Get yourself a golden fleece.

Poor Waiters: A Wakeup Call

From Mother Jones: 40 percent of restaurant workers live in near-poverty. What’s more, it turns out that restaurants aren’t much of a meritocracy after all; there’s no real chance of a dishwasher ever making it up the chain. Fascinating and sobering reading–and it makes me wonder, how do Peekskill’s establishments–high-end and not–compare?
