In Intro to Aerial, an aerial hoop and silks have you hanging upside down, while in Aerial Yoga, slings provide support that deepens your practice and relaxation. Think you shouldn’t try them because you lack upper body strength? Says one of the instructors: “That’s exactly why you should. Every time you get on the trapeze, you do a pull up.”
The Butcher & The Baker finally took their food-centric roadtrip through the South, eating their way through Savannah, Charleston and Ashville. They loved all the smoked pork, grits and butter-rich foods so much they wanted to keep tastes of it at home, so they developed a savory biscuit recipe using the chives from their garden.
Community Access to the Arts proved its performers and supporters are Ready, Willing and Able; gallerist Jack Shainman threw a big time opening reception and anniversary party at The School in Kinderhook; and Martha Stewart made her annual appearance at Trade Secrets in Sharon.
If you love the history and decorative detailing of a historic home, but hate the upkeep of such a vintage property, you'll find these recent renovations to be the perfect balance of both worlds. Brand-new, top-of-the-line appliances and electrical systems, and rebuilt floors and fireplaces offer modern luxuries within a charming, original frame.
Hudson has had an excellent food truck/cart scene for a few years now but two new additions at 347 Warren have reminded us why we love eating on the street in River Town. Both are run by recent CIA grads, they have popped up side by side, each elevating different schools of classic Americana with outstanding results.
Now that we've satisfied our eye candy cravings at Trade Secrets, we go onto a weekend of plant sales in New Preston and Hyde Park. At Clermont Historic Site, gardeners can learn about practical solution to keep deer from nibbling at the goods. And there are several plant-centric workshops the following week. Check out our Garden calendar here.
