Happy long weekend! Some of you regular readers are away from Beacon, and some of you are away from your home to visit Beacon! Welcome :) Maybe you came here because you read about Beacon in Vogue, who recently featured The Inn and Spa at Beacon during a Hudson Valley highlight article, or on Expedia, who named Beacon as one of their Most Artistic Towns. Also it turns out, people on layovers from Stewart Airport are coming over for lunch or dinner, according to the owner of Liberty Bistro in Newburgh, in the Rhinebeck Bank video below.
Highlighted below are the events, classes, workshops and shopping deals that you need to factor into your weekend plans, as well as your week next week!
