We hope that everyone had a safe, joyous, and restful Thanksgiving! Now it’s time to embrace the holiday energy that is starting to build all around us. There are plenty of great in person and virtual events happening this weekend and we’ve collected a small sample of the highlights for you to discover!
Revive yourself post-Thanksgiving with some outdoor music and socially distanced fun this weekend. Grand Cru in Rhinebeck will be hosting their “Anti-Shopping Event” with two performers, Mike Lynch and the Deadbeats and wood-fired pizza. If you are more inclined to spend and looking for holiday gifts or an impulse buy, head to Opus 40 for their On-Site Holiday Fair. Interested but not feeling social interactions? Don’t worry, you can browse the market virtually!
Saturday is SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY! This year it is especially important to support local and think of your neighborhood small business owners who have been hit hard during this global pandemic we are facing. Why not browse around Uptown, Midtown, and or Downtown to see what great gifts you can find for others, or yourself! Get into the giving spirit and check out the Trolley Museum of New York’s “Give, Thanks, and Ride” Event. They will be accepting donations of non-perishable foods, gift cards, and baby necessities including diapers of all sizes. These donations will go to the Family of Woodstock organization. The Trolley Museum will be offering discounted rides for those who donate. Grand Cru in Rhinebeck will be rocking again with live music and delicious eats from Las Tres Americans food truck. Bring your dogs and kids over for an afternoon of delight. At night, get extra festive with a performance of “A Christmas Carol” Drive in 2020 Edition at the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck.
For those of you who are still hungry, don’t forget some of the local businesses are offering Breakfast Buffets such as Ole Savannah and Savona’s on the Kingston Waterfront this Sunday 11/29. While Downtown, the Trolley Museum of New York’s “Give, Thanks, and Ride” event continues, so bring some non-perishable food donations and baby supplies down to the museum, receive a discounted trolley ride to Kingston Point, and do something good for those in need this holiday season. If you’re feeling ambitious, there is a Ballet Barre class via Zoom for some post-Thanksgiving movement. You can still catch a performance of “A Christmas Carol” Drive in 2020 Edition at the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck. Lastly, a safe alternative to any activity is taking a lovely hike or gentle walk outside. There’s a beautiful weather weekend ahead, so get out and enjoy!
