Happening This Weekend - 12/7/2018


It's December's Second Saturday and maybe one of our most favorite Second Saturdays of the whole year!  Businesses and galleries will be open later and the streets will be busy with Holiday shoppers, art lovers, theater lovers checking out "A Chorus Line" by The Beacon Players, and tree lighting spectators.  See A Little Beacon Blog's Second Saturday Art Guide here.

Maybe consider taking a FREE yoga class at Firefly Yoga in Fishkill Saturday morning to get grounded first. 

SEND 'EM IN!: Your Holiday House Lights. We'd love to make Beacon into its own Holiday Lights Show, but need your tips! Sometimes we drive around hunting for house lights, but we can't get everywhere. Don't be shy - show us your inner Griswold! Submit a photo of the outside of your house to editorial@alittlebeaconblog.com for consideration. Perfection and grandness not required. Just fun.

Let's get to the Things To Do!

Luxe Optique

The message is out: WE’RE OPEN!
Luxe Optique moved next door for a spell while they renovate their original space. The owner of Luxe Optique, Laurie Riehle, also owns the building, which includes the two storefronts. How to tell them apart? The storefront on the right has darker windows than their corner space. Luxe Optique is open seven days, so don't give it a second thought when you get a chance - walk on in! Pictured here is Ryon, a well-educated eyewear stylist, modeling for this shot. Go inside and say "Hi" to him!

L a M è r e Clothing + Goods

436 Main Street
April Perri is a mother of three, lives in Poughkeepsie, and wanted to open a shop in Beacon - for moms. The name of her shop, in fact, is French for "the mother." Talk to her, and you'll find out: "It's not like we became moms and just died - that style doesn't matter for us anymore." April has curated a wide selection of brands that are affordable - and size-forgiving. Looking for inspiration? Let April pull some styles for you that maybe you hadn't considered. And if you need a quickie pair of sunglasses, she has those too. Follow her Instagram @lamereclothingandgoods to see what just came in.
PS: If you have a stroller and can't navigate the steps, consider parking the stroller in the front yard and bringing the baby inside. Speaking from experience, this blogging mother has gotten good at buying without trying on. The Discerning Eye has evolved.

Happening This Weekend - 11/9/2018

It's November's Second Saturday and it's time to see what new work Beacon's local art galleries have in store. Take a peek now at our Art Gallery Guide to decide what you want to see. Have you checked out Beacon's Free Bus, the Beacon Loop, yet? It's really easy! It can get you around town lickity-split! Hail it from literally anywhere on Main Street, and it will scoop you up and put you down where you want.

PS: An update to yesterday's protest in Beacon: about 200 reportedly participated in the local event, which was one of 900 protests across the country regarding the resignation of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and his temporary replacement.
Read all about it here and see pictures >

Alright... Let's see what you're doing this weekend! First of all, there's that can't-miss bake sale for a cause, For Goodness Bake, which is still accepting baked goods! See here for details...

The For Goodness Bake Bake Sale
Day:
Saturday, November 10, 2018
Time: 10 am to 4 pm
Location: 145 Main St., Beacon, NY
(aka Beacon Healing Massage & Create Space)
The For Goodness Bake event is a Beacon staple, and has become an annual event throughout the years. Started by Kristen Pratt and Tara Tornello, the community-sourced bake sale raises money for one particular cause that has demonstrated an urgent need in the community. Say Kristen and Tara for this year: “We wanted to raise funds to help keep a beloved Beacon family together. For four years, this local family (who must remain anonymous) has helped to nurture a little boy who needed a home. Now his future and their family are in jeopardy as they face a difficult fight for his rights.”

Saturday: For Goodness Bake Fundraisers String Up Their Aprons Once More To Raise Money For A Family

for goodness bake 2018 flyer.jpg

The For Goodness Bake event is a Beacon staple, and has become an annual event throughout the years. Started by Kristen Pratt and Tara Tornello, the community-sourced bake sale raises money for one particular cause that has demonstrated an urgent need in the community (see below for info on how you can bake). This year, the highly anticipated bake sale is on Saturday, November 10, from 10 am to 3 pm at 145 Main St. in Beacon (aka Beacon Healing Massage and Create Space), near Bank Square Coffeehouse.

Say Kristen and Tara as to what inspired them to put on their aprons: “We wanted to raise funds to help keep a beloved Beacon family together. For 4 years, this local family (who must remain anonymous) has helped to nurture a little boy who needed a home. Now his future and their family are in jeopardy as they face a difficult fight for his rights within a legal system that consistently puts political interests above the best outcomes for children.”

How This Bake Sale Works

Bakers from around the Hudson Valley will join the fundraising efforts by donating a variety of sweet and savory baked goods. Pay-what-you-can beverages and coffee will be provided by Drink More Good and Trax Espresso Bar & Coffee Roasters.

Now in its sixth year, For Goodness Bake has previously raised nearly $15,000 for local causes, including the Beacon After School Program Tuition Assistance Fund, the Beacon Community Kitchen, Green Teen Beacon, and the Kids R Kids Feeding Program.

To learn more about the event or to get involved, call (845) 518-4194 or email forgoodnessbakebeacon@gmail.com.

To donate baked goods, sign up via this link: http://signup.com/go/jsTeNdH

INSIDER TIP! They are accepting baked goods up until the last minute. So if you have mad baking skills, use ‘em! I have done it (I am not a baker) and it was a wonderful initiative to be a part of.

Simply drop off to to Kristen and Tara tonight (Friday) at 145 Main from 6 to 8 pm, or Saturday from 7 to 8 am.

If you are reading this article after the bake sale has ended, but want to offer to bake for another one, email forgoodnessbakebeacon@gmail.com and ask to be added to their notification list.

Hocus Pocus Kids Halloween Parade
from the Beacon Chamber of Commerce
Day:
Sunday, October 28, 2018 (rain or shine)
Lineup Time: 12 pm at the Visitors Center
Parade Start Time: 1 pm
Locations: Costumed kids start lining up at the Visitors Center in Polhill Park (South Avenue/9D and Main Street, near Bank Square and Beacon Creamery) for a parade all the way down Main Street stopping at the intersection of Verplanck Avenue and Main Street.
How This Works: Wait - Verplanck intersects with Main Street? Yes, it does! Allllll the way at the end of Main Street by the old train tracks and the former Hop location, now Melzingah Tap House. You will parade past the Howland Cultural Center, past the Dummy Light, past The Roundhouse, and you will parade past lots of art galleries and shops you may not have discovered yet on this slightly hidden end of Main Street, sometimes referred to as the East End Gem of Main Street.
Collecting Candy: The first step is the parade. Smile and wave! A firetruck will be bringing up the rear of the parade. The second step will be trick or treating from businesses on Main Street, on the sidewalk, on your way back from the end of the parade route. The street will be unblocked, and you and the kids will trick or treat on the sidewalk on the return trip back up Main Street.
BONUS: The Roundhouse will once again be handing out cider on their patio.

Day:
Saturday, October 20, 2018
Time: Noon to 6 pm
Location: The Blushery, 528 Main St., Beacon, NY
Yes, October is about all things pumpkin, foliage, sweater weather, and Halloween. But more importantly, October is about Breast Cancer Awareness. The Blushery is hosting a special event honoring those affected. They will be offering complimentary brow services to all breast cancer fighters and survivors. Whether your brows are newly growing back post-chemo, or are just beginning to fall out, they will help you look and feel your best. Walk-ins welcome. Appointments recommended.

Pro Tip: The bra store in Beacon, The Bra Fit Expert, has all sorts of pretty things for all sizes. It is run by Tina Faraj Savarese, who dedicated her career to helping breast cancer patients regain their confidence and femininity after surgery, after she lost her own mother to breast cancer at age 17. Find The Bra Fit Expert inside of Echo and across from the Howland Cultural Center.

Rhinebeck Bank | Fall Home-Buying Tips
Pro tip from Rhinebeck Bank: Just as purchasing a home is an extensive process, selling one can be as well. Most sellers do not want to enter the holiday season with interruptions and the selling process on their mind. It is not uncommon for homeowners whose houses have not sold by the fall to wait until the following spring. With this being said, sellers are worn out and may be more willing to negotiate and expedite the closing and move-in process.

Antalek & Moore Insurance Agency

According to the independent insurance agents at Antalek & Moore, if you have a condo in Beacon, you'll need personal insurance for it. Even though it is your home, homeowners insurance is insufficient. Therefore, you may think that you need a renters insurance policy - but unfortunately that would leave coverage gaps as well, despite some similarities. Let Antalek & Moore break it down for you.
