The week of June 12 through the 19th has been designated Cider Week in the Hudson Valley and we want to help celebrate all things apple! Cafe Le Perche is offering the Campaign for the New Hudson Area Library 10% of all their sales on Friday, June 12. They will be presenting 5 hard ciders – three from the Hudson Valley and two from France – along with 4 special entrée pairings and even a newly invented mixed drink, “The Apple Blossom”. Although our forefathers drank plenty of it, the drink fell out of favor for almost two hundred years. Now, it’s the “new” trend in alcoholic beverages. Join the fun and taste the varieties. Reservations are required. Call the restaurant at 518.822.1850. Read all about it here.
This coming Saturday, October 11th, the Committee for the new Hudson Area Library will be serving their own chili – chock-full of secret ingredients – at the Hudson Valley Bounty Chili Fest. The event is held at Henry Hudson Waterfront Park from noon until 4pm. Admission is $5.00.
Ticket holders get to sample more than 20 different chilies and vote for their favorite. First, second and third place chili makers receive prizes of $500, $350 and $150 respectively. Please VOTE for ARMORY CHILI and help us take home the winning check for the new Hudson Area Library!
