Apple Cider in Westchester

Westchester Weekend Updates

Yes, it is officially the LAST weekend of the Summer of 2020. It was one of the most frustrating, challenging summers ever – but try and squeeze in all the stress-free fun you can in the next 3 days as the nice temperatures still prevail. As usual, please visit the websites or call ahead to know what to expect with regards to adjusted schedules and COVID-19 procedures. Stay safe and enjoy your weekend.
 FRIDAY, September 18
Nadine’s Did you know that European-style Oktoberfests actually commence in September? Why not start celebrating at Nadine’s, a very cute German/French cuisine restaurant and bar that has Austrian/German style Oktoberfest picnic tables already set up outdoors to welcome as many patrons as possible.  

SATURDAY, September 19
Thompson’s Cider Mill It’s Opening Day sale…located right next to beautiful Teatown Lake Reservation Nature Preserve. 
Storm King Art Center 500-acre outdoor museum located in New York’s Hudson Valley, but you have to book in advance on their website.  

SUNDAY, September 20
Bannerman Island Visit their website to book in advance for one of their tours and options for getting to the island.
Socially Distanced Hayrides and Corn Maze at Outhouse Orchard Parking is $12 and must be purchased in advance. Although adjustments have been made, it’s good to know that we can still participate in some of the traditional fall activities. Check their website for details.


My husband has in the past surprised me (even his mother-in-law also, believe it or not!) with lovely gifts from ROCKS Jewelry/Gifts/Home, a stylish, playful boutique in Chappaqua. It’s well worth a visit either online or in person. (By the way, “National Wife Appreciation Day” happens to fall this year on Sunday. Just sayin’… ) 😉
