HUDSON VALLEY LIGHT IT UP BLUE 2018 CELEBRATION! 

This year, all proceeds will benefit AMOC, the Autism Move-A- Thon of Orange County.

Formed in 2004, AMOC strives to support families who cope with Autism and related disorders. These families face their struggle often in isolation and at great personal hardship. AMOC aims to raise public awareness of Autism through seminars and media campaigns in Orange County. AMOC works to provide information and networks to help empower families and the community, so that we can better address the unique and troubling challenges of this health problem. AMOC also aims to raise understanding and tolerance in Orange County. We advocate for those people, often voiceless, who might act or look different, who should be respected, and loved for whom they (or we) are.

TAP® New York!

header_2014_2TAP® New York started out 20 years ago with a couple hundred beer fanatics and a handful of craft brewers at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, and has grown into the largest craft beer and food event in New York State.

Craft brewing is alive and growing bigger than ever in New York State. The popularity of craft brewing has led to fuller bodied, flavorful brews featuring rich colors, bold flavors, and imaginative ingredients. People ask for it, and the brewers are answering. Many new craft breweries are opening every year, and we’re both happy and proud to welcome them aboard.

TAP® New York has grown over tenfold through the years to now encompass the entire base areas at Hunter Mountain, plus added tent space. Over 180 breweries were invited for 2017, offering everything from IPAs and lagers to weissbiers, doppel and trippel bocks, stouts, ales… pretty much any variety you know of, and probably a few that you don’t. Check out our List of Invited Breweries to see who was invited and who attended in 2017.

TAP® New York is also about food. Each year we offer plenty to eat. Food is INCLUDED with your ticket!

TAP® is also a beer competition. Brewers from across the state enter their finest suds to compete for plaques and trophies. Each year, highly qualified judges choose the best craft brewery in New York State and also the best brewery in the Hudson Valley. The panel of judges also decides on the best individual beers in the state by category.

NO ONE UNDER THE AGE OF 21 WILL BE ADMITTED. VALID ID MUST BE CARRIED AT ALL TIMES AND PRODUCED UPON REQUEST.

5 Romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner Spots in the Hudson Valley

vday_dinner
Yes, it’s true—Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, but just because the holiday arrives midweek doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice romance. We’ve rounded up five restaurants in the Hudson Valley serving gourmet prix fixe feasts on February 14. A word to the wise: reserve your tables in advance. BYO sonnets.

Heritage Food & Drink (Wappingers Falls)

The rustic atmosphere of Heritage Food and Drink gives a feeling of both comfort and class perfect for a dreamy date night. After extensive renovation, the bar and restaurant in Wappingers Falls opened its doors in August 2017 in the former location of Greenbaum and Gilhooley’s. Heritage will host its first Valentine’s Day dinner with an optional, three-course prix fixe menu. Guests will choose from four appetizers, three entrees, and two desserts. The options include a fried blue point oysters appetizer, basil crusted lamb loin main course, and Heritage “black forest” cake for dessert. The dinner comes with a glass of sparkling rose. $59 per person  FULL ARTICLE

THE BEST GIFTS AND IDEAS FOR A ROMANTIC VALENTINE’S DAY

The right gift for your beloved is a choice that should come from the heart—but that doesn’t mean a little research can’t help. The following picks are the result of more than 100 hours of research performed by some two dozen testers tasked with finding the best items to help you plan your next romantic occasion (even if you secretly hoard all of the chocolate for yourself).
