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! 

Skateboarding and Fishing. December 5th! Wait What?

Local artist Geoff Feder will be showing his intriguing 60 Needles, a collection of fishing lure sculptures at the 2nd Nature Skate Park in Peekskill, this Friday night, December 5th, from 7-9 pm.

And yes, there will be skateboarding going on!

Bring your board! Bring your art history degree! Is skateboarding an art? Can art be a skateboard?  Come and decide for yourself.

Don’t leave empty handed — you can buy a board!  They have a full skate shop there, and Mr. Feder has painted 20 boards with his iconic design and they’re for sale!

What’s Open + Closed on Labor Day in Peekskill

Thanks to the Peekskill-Cortlandt Patch for this super-useful post. As reporter Lanning Taliaferro sums up, “If it’s official, it’s probably closed; if it wants your patronage, it’s probably open!”

Glad to hear this, too:

Exception: Labor Day is traditionally the last day of municipal pool season.
