Lots To Do This Weekend

Catskill Brewery 04.10.15With so much to do, it sure is starting to feel like spring around here!

Start your weekend off tonight at The Catskill Brewery, 672 Old Route 17, with their Live Music Fridays series featuring Karen Hudson and Chris Larson from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Tomorrow (Saturday, April 11) is the long-awaited official Season Opener for the 2015 Trout Season! Make sure to catch the celebratory first cast at 9:30 a.m. on the Willowemoc Creek just upstream from the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum Bridge, 1031 Old Route 17. This year’s casters are all kids! The Lake family, Rylie, Silas & Veida, and Iris and Roan Gillingham will lead an under age 16 group to cast the first flies on the frigid water of the Catskills.

Numerous activities will follow throughout the day at the CFFCM, including a sampling of Agnes Van Put’s famous soups, the 14th annual Fly Tyers Rendezvous, activities for children and a guided tour of the Museum. After lunch, there will also be free outdoor casting lessons, weather permitting, for all ages and abilities.

Later on Saturday, The Laugh Tour returns to The Arnold House, featuring Susan Prekel, Rich Kiamko and Jonathan McBride, starting at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 and available online or at the door. We also hear The Plunk Shop, 39 Main Street, will be open again, starting this weekend!

Time to Celebrate

welcomeSpring is definitely in the air and Main Street will soon be in full bloom again thanks to the volunteer efforts of everyone involved with Livingston Manor Renaissance.

In the meantime, there’s some celebrating to do. In preparation for your holiday gatherings this weekend, make sure to stop in Livingston Manor along the way. You can find just about everything you might need, right here!

Brandenburg Pastry Bakery, Main Street Farm and Peck’s Market can help you prepare your holiday meal from start to finish. Sugar Blossom Flowers has a variety of cut flowers and plants to decorate your table.

Perhaps, you’re dining elsewhere and need a hostess gift? Stop by Life Repurposed, Morgan Outdoors, Wildlife Gift Shop and/or Willow and Brown where you’re sure to find the perfect item.

If all this sounds great, but you’d rather dine out, The Arnold House, Madison’s and Rolling River Cafe will all be open all weekend.
