Westchester Weekend Updates

Can you believe that we’re more than half way through October? I hope everyone has the opportunity to make the most of the fleeting fall weather before it gets too cold. If there is anything we’ve learned from the past few months, it’s that our outdoor time is so precious! Please head out and try one of these suggestions of things to do over the weekend with friends and family, and take some time out to smell the pumpkins! 

Friday, October 23

Winding Hills Golf Club – For a change of scenery, why not plan a relaxed dinner and drinks on their patio.

Saturday, October 24

Palaia Winery & Meadery – You may be wondering what’s a “meadery”?! Why not pay them a visit and find out first hand, but I will say that it’s got something to do with honey, fruits and the production of some drinkable delights.

Village of Monroe Fall Festival – Head over to Monroe for a mix of food, performances and fun family activities.

Sunday, October 25

Queens Botanical Garden – Head south with the kids to enjoy a pumpkin patch outing. This event is also being help on the Saturday if that’s better for you.

Hudson Valley Regional Farmers Market – Head over to our neighboring County of Putnam to beautiful Brewster to visit this year-round market open every Sunday from 10AM to  2PM.

Sunday promises to be gorgeous in the Westchester County area, but this weekend try to snag a table any time at one of the dozens of lovely Hudson River-side eateries. One of the many gems dotting our shoreline is Red Hat on the River. A beloved Irvington institution since 2003, it is also adored by French-American bistro lovers across our region.

Westchester Weekend Updates

Labor day weekend is now upon us! One of the advantages of living in Westchester is that we also have easy access to neighboring counties and NYC, so with an extra day of rest, I thought I would include a couple of options that are further afield. While each week I make every effort to ensure that the information is accurate, it’s always worth checking the websites carefully and calling ahead to ensure that you are familiar with the most current COVID-19 protocols and possible changes in schedules. Have a fun, safe weekend no matter how you choose to spend it.

Guadalajara  Enjoy some great Mexican food and a great selection of drinks in – and be sure to pay attention to the pictures on the walls.

At Eatalia, they don’t just serve up great food (in enormous portions I might add) but Sammy the owner is just a gem of a person and hopefully when you try this place out, you get to meet him.
