On Saturday Jason and I took a ride up to Woodstock, NY. Jason used to work and live in Woodstock, before he moved to Boston, and we wanted to visit his old stomping grounds while we’re still in NY. It was the perfect day for a drive and walking around the town. We went into almost every shop in downtown Woodstock. Woodstock is filled with its share of hippie-shops, but also had some cool gift/clothing/specialty stores too.
For example, take this place – this is my kinda place!
Jason and I had lunch at Oriole 9, which is in the center of town. It was hopping inside. The lunch menu is primarily made up of soups, salads, and sandwiches and the restaurant uses ingredients from local farmers in the Hudson Valley as well as their own farm – love it. We decided on cocktails for lunch, I had a glass of hibiscus and ginger prosecco, while Jason had a glass of wine. For lunch, we both had sandwiches. Jason had the Belle&Evans chicken, bacon, tomato, avocado, basil cream and greens sandwich, while I had the black forest ham, provolone, and tomato toastie with greens. My sandwich came with a side salad served with a thick balsamic reduction on the side. Both sandwiches were pressed like paninis and delicious.
We had such a great day in Woodstock. I wish we could have stayed longer. It was supposed to rain on Sunday so we decided on a movie and a lazy day inside. We both love Steve Carrell and went to see Dinner for Schmucks.
It was funny, but everyone in the movie theater seemed to be laughing a lot more than we were. There’s a nice “feel good” storyline throughout and everyone wins in the end, but I wasn’t rolling on the floor laughing the whole time. There are a few really funny scenes and overall it’s a good movie with great actors – it’s definitely worth renting, and seeing in the theater on a rainy day.
