Have you been to Robin’s Nest on North 5th Street?
Robin brought out her vintage Barbies and they are viewable in her window display.
Stop by this weekend and see them for yourself.
Start following Robin’s Nest – now on Instagram!
Ten years ago – TEN – 2013 (I think) – Girlgantua, Hudson’s born and bred drag queen – on Halloween Night – did a Drag Race. Local Hudsonians dressed up in heels and ran around 7th Street Park. There were prizes and gift certificates to winners.
This year, a little bird told me to start a Mrs. Roper Run. OK – it’s not really a RUN. No one is running. It’s called a run just for alliteration.
It’s really a Mrs. Roper Bar Crawl. But, whatever. It’s an easy costume – just do it. A friend already told me, “But, Trixie, I only have the robe, I don’t have a wig!”
You have a month! Get it together. Make an effort. Show up.
See you around!
Welcome to fall in the Hudson Valley!
We live in one of best places in the country for fall, and one of the best places in the country for locally-grown produce. I attended the recent Foodies talk sponsored by The Maker and Hudson Hall. I go to these events because it’s a Thursday night and half a block away. Why not?
This talk was incredible! It was also quite sobering. Yes, we do have inexpensive food in this country, but, really at what cost?
There was a special menu at The Maker available right after the talk. If you can try any of it, it’s totally worth it. The Maker’s Executive Chef Alex Napolitano uses local ingredients from local farms.
See you around, Hudson!
