Now Open! And yes, I am eager to get a gander at the brand new deli that opened to the public at the top of this week. Saturday morning will be my first opportunity to have breakfast at “Pepettini To Go.” I am already looking forward to their menu item: 2 Eggs And Cheese; and a cup of regular coffee, please! This deli is an extended venture from the owners of the popular Pepettini Restaurant, located directly next door. There are many of us who remember this space where the deli is located as the lobby of the former Storm King Theatre. For each of us who have wished for a reopening of the Storm King Theatre – well, it would appear you would enter via the new deli. Instead of a box of popcorn one could have a pastrami on rye? But I digress. No theatre revival is in the works. To the good people at Pepettini To Go – looking forward to seeing you this weekend. Best wishes!

Speaking of noshing……. It’s Hudson Valley Restaurant Week! The actually time is
March 11 through 24 – Monday through Sunday. Thus providing each of us with 2 weeks to check it out. 200+ restaurants flaunt their best fare with special 3-course menus at discounted prices. Canterbury Brook Inn, Main Street in Cornwall is included in Restaurant Week.

Happy Anniversary to the good people at Hazard’s Pharmacy on Main Street in Cornwall. Business owners JOHN & CHIP PELELLA celebrate this March their 32nd anniversary of purchasing this popular apothecary!

Here’s a genuine novelty item! Looking for a St. Patrick’s Day Parade? March 16 – Saturday, try out what is billed as ‘NY’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade’ a mere “306-foot long” parade (Grand Marshall, piper, drummers and flag bearer) starts at Spill the Beans Café on Millpond Parkway and ends at Bourbon Street Bar and Grill where corned beef and cabbage (and libations) are available for purchase. Bring your kids, pets and cameras. Millpond Parkway, in nearby Monroe. 1 – 2 p.m. Call before you go: 845-782-834.

Cornwall’s own LYDIA ADAMS DAVIS is a highly polished and spontaneous singer. She is known to improvise a song on the spot before breaking into original country-folk ballads.  Lydia draws her audience in with refreshing, clear-voiced entertainment. With five albums and a shortlisted Grammy nomination for “One Earth So Green and Round”, her songs are delightful. Lydia hopes you will step out to see & hear her perform at the TOWNE CRIER FREE SALON, Beacon, Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m. Have a good show, Lady Lydia!

Join the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum in Cornwall on their First Day of Spring Full Moon Walk, this coming Wednesday, March 20 at 7 p.m. at the Outdoor Discovery Center. The March full moon is often called the Sap Moon by Native Americans as this time of year heralds the sugaring season when sap is flowing in maple trees and the ground softens enough for earthworms to reappear, inviting the return of robins. Dress appropriately for weather conditions and please bring a flashlight or headlamp if possible. This program is for adults and families with children ages 5 and older. Admission. For registration and more information call 845-534-5506, ext. 204.

Step out and meet Cornwall-on-Hudson Village Historian KATHLEEN CHRISTENSEN. Kathleen is providing a lecture and you are encouraged to attend. The topic is certainly interesting – defying the rigid gender roles of her era, Deborah Sampson served in the Continental Army, fought in Tarrytown, and encamped with Gen. George Washington at the New Windsor Cantonment from 1782-83. Find out more about this remarkable woman during this free, drop-in lecture. Thursday evening, March 21, 6:30 p.m.

Mark your calendar: next Saturday, March 23, MOUNTAINVILLE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH. 615 Angola Road (just off Route 32). Complete & popular Chicken Pot Pie Dinner.

4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Dinner tickets at the door. Your choice of to go – or eat in! I will be escorting some of the usual suspects for eat in!

Reminder: CLAYTON HAGER, of Wood Avenue, hopes you’ll step out and view the contents of the Annual Collectors Show. This Saturday, March 16. 12 Noon till 3:30 p.m. Clayton suggests that you “Stop by to see what your neighbors have been saving for the past 50 years, and enjoy a cup of hot coffee along with live music!” Clayton has arranged for this event in the Highland Falls Library, 298 Main Street.  Free and open to the public! By the way, be sure to ask Clayton about his amazing collection of old post cards that he has enhanced into beautiful wall hangings. Great gift ideas.
