Yes Way Rose

Memorial Day weekend was a glorious kick-off to summer this year, with bright blue skies and limitless sunshine and temps in the 80s. And here it is July already, with summer in full swing. When you’re in a soaking-up-the-sun mood, there’s nothing […]

In Good Spirits

It’s been a while since we’ve been able to hop a flight to some exotic overseas locale to revel in the stimulation of new perspectives, flavors, and people. Many of us are craving novel experiences and, luckily the Hudson Valley has so […]

Word on the street is…

Looking at Analog Mastered on Main Street

In a world where we can access any part of the planet from a computer in our pocket, what does it mean to be “of a place”? For winemakers, this is “terroir,” the ultimate expression of not just a region, but even a particular plot of land and the micro [...]

Keeping It Local

After spending over a decade in various culinary roles in the Hudson Valley and beyond, Mark Fredette unveiled Iron & Grass – a family-owned “chophouse” in Hudson, NY. The local farm-to-table restaurant and bar opened its doors in August 2021. “We call it a ‘chophouse’ because ‘steakhouses’ focus on beef,” says Fredette, chef and owner of Iron & Grass. His new chophouse focuses on sustainable agriculture and regenerative farming. Most of its meat is locally sourced from animals that are pasture-raised and grass fed. Beyond [...]

B.R.O.K.E.N. code B.I.R.D. switching

It’s not your typical summer fare. “B.R.O.K.E.N. code B.I.R.D. switching” currently on the Larry Vaber Stage at Berkshire Theatre Group’s Unicorn Stage in Stockbridge has intriguing music, engrossing visuals, superb acting and a grip on the audience that lasts well past a thunderous curtain call into the Berkshire evening. It is not, however, light, breezy, escapist or simply an evening diversion for the summer set. Elegantly directed by Kimille Howard, the play reaches into the soul and, once there, will not let [...]

Wine of the Week

Wine of the Week(end)

Summer is upon us and it's the perfect season for sangria. There are many premade sangrias that can simply be chilled and served over ice. Super easy and convenient. You can then add whatever you want to make it extra fun - fresh fruit, additional fruit juice, a splash of brandy or triple sec, even seltzer or soda. My choice for a premade sangria is Mija. They are made with natural, unfiltered fruit. The red is a blend of red wine, blood [...]
