Like all great stories, this one starts with a cocktail. As I sit down at the bar at Bar Sugo, the bartender takes a break from squeezing fresh limes to ask me what I’d like to drink. I briefly peruse the cocktail list, eyeing the list of contenders, before I select “My Grandfather’s Watch”—a concoction of Tito’s Vodka, St. George Green Chile Vodka, grapefruit liqueur, and that freshly squeezed lime juice. He quickly wipes the remnants of citrus pulp off his hands before whipping up a killer cocktail I down a little too easily. With one drink in and another [...]

When I first tasted Eli Brazell's cocktails, I didn't know the man behind the mixology at Harper's Restaurant & Bar. I just new craft cocktails were at the finest at the Dobbs Ferry eatery. But recently, I became obsessed with @The-Alcoholist on Instagram, and realized the connection. And I knew in an instant—those tantalizing, high-end photos of bar fare were just as good as they looked. The likes averaging in the hundreds on each photo, looks like I'm not the only one who knows what's good. Eli, who says he is relatively new to the mobile app, is already #instafamous, building a virtual [...]
When I moved to Sleepy Hollow several years ago, I walked every evening down by the river, eventually making my way up the ginormous hill in Tarrytown. I will always have love for the river towns—there, I feel a sense of community I haven't experienced in other towns in Westchester. It's not just about being friendly to your neighbor; here, everyone seems to have a deep appreciation for the environment, local businesses, and the town. But my walks were filled with hellos, people watching, and (of course!) playful pups. It may have been my love for dogs, the appreciation for [...]
