Westchester Magazine Highlights IntoxiKate’s Eating for Orange

Big thank you to Gina Valentino, of Westchester Magazine, for coming to the Eating for Orange Kick-Off Party and writing an amazingly supportive article about this collaborative marketing effort supporting Feeding Westchester.

To raise awareness during Hunger Action Month each September, local food blogger Kate Schlientz (founder of IntoxiKate) kicks off the Eating for Orange campaign, now in its third year, in collaboration with Feeding [...]

Sip Like a Queen: Lyndhurst High Tea

**everything's coming up roses** Is it too early to be thinking about next weekend? I've got a confession—I've been thinking about April 6-7th since I visited the Guest Cottage at Lyndhurst for a sneak peek at the Flower Show's High Tea. In between interview takes with News 12's Lisa LaRocca (love her!), I was able to snap a few photos and chat with Saint George Bistro's Chef Chris Vergara and Michelle Adams (Hastings-on-Hudson) about their contribution to the Show. While you can get a glimpse of the design arrangements created by over a dozen of Westchester’s finest florists within the rooms [...]

Restaurants with riverviews—Pier 701 Restaurant & Bar, Rivertown Taphouse, The View on the Hudson, Sambal Thai & Malay, Half Moon, and Hudson Farmer & the Fish—worked very hard this week to create community events commemorating the history—the Tappan Zee Bridge demolition. With many locations quickly filling up with reservations, ingredients were ordered and food was prepped. This afternoon, the construction company behind the demolition of the bridge made an announcement they were postponing demolition due to 'high winds' Saturday morning. A new announcement is scheduled for tomorrow, announcing the new date. The postponed destruction of the bridge affects our small [...]
