What’s Up Peekskill? It’s February, and winter is both longer and shorter

It’s a battle of the ground hogs! Punxsutawney Phil says more winter. He’s usually about 30% right. Staten Island Chuck says spring is in the air. She’s about 80% right. Time will tell. In the meantime, Peekskill has some rockin’ to do.

Thursday, Feb. 2 – Happy Ground Hog Day!

What’s Up Peekskill? It’s a no-brainer

What do peanut brittle, no brainers, curmudgeons and kazoos have in common? Nothing really, but they are all celebrated this week for some really odd, perhaps serendipitous, reason. Actually, and alternatively, they were all invented in Peekskill, ’cause we rock!

What’s Up Peekskill? It’s getting colder…

What does the onset of winter and herding cats have in common? Nothing. But there’s some dude pining about Jesse’s girl, a Country Christmas, nutcrackers (yikes), karaoke, and lots of jazz and rock downtown. So herd them cats and rustle up some warmth and fun downtown with lots of live music.
