Happy Hour in Westchester

Westchester Weekend Updates



Westchester Weekend Updates

I know most of us are probably happier than ever that it’s already December so that we can ‘move on’ to 2021…but that doesn’t mean that we can’t try to make the remaining time in 2020 as memorable as possible. As we go deeper into winter, there will be more activities happening online, and so we’ve brought back our “virtual events” section and called it “Digital Diamonds”. It just seemed fitting to relaunch this since the holidays are the one time of the year that all things shiny and glittery, in any combination, are ok. Please be sure to call ahead/check websites to make reservations and to confirm Covid-19 protocols and revised schedules.

 

Friday, December 4

Horse Feathers – Would you like your happy hour ‘to go’? Try something from this great selection of adult beverages. With a legacy of 40 years in Tarrytown, you’ll surely be drawn back in for a great meal as well.

 

Saturday, December 5 

White Plains Holiday Market – Visit this brand new holiday pop-up market open on December 3 through December 13, with weekend hours from 11am through 9pm.

 

Kathleen’s Tea Room – Why not try this cozy, English-style tea room in Peekskill for some sweet and/or savory treats and of course, tea, now celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Reservations are highly recommended, as space is limited. 

 

Sunday, December 6

Holiday Spirit Festival– Head over to Wappingers Falls for this 16-year tradition of holiday family fun! The event is being held entirely outdoors this year. Please see the website for social distancing protocols.  

 

Digital Diamond Virtual Events

SoJam A Capella – Our 1st Digital Diamond celebrates the raging renewed success of the storied a capella musical tradition. The “SoJam A Capella Festival” is an acclaimed annual celebration of talented a capella groups from around the world, begun in 2003. This year, for the 1st time, the jam is totally digital. A mere $35 dollar ticket gets you an All Access Pass for the entire weekend to the performances of world-famous, (instrument-less, of course) innovative groups based in Berlin, Brazil, Baltimore and beyond! Don’t miss tuning into at least some of this livestream extravaganza!
