This event features many women artists performing across a variety of musical genres. It takes place on January 25 at 3PM at Orange County Choppers in Newburgh, NY. Admission is just $10 which includes 2 tickets for the raffle table (where you could win a nights paid vacation to The White Dove!). Food and drinks will be available.

Gorgeous Woodstock Any Time of Year

Yesterday I took the toddler, the new-born, the dog, the cat and Hank, the pink Radio Flyer worm ride on toy for a walk down Orchard Lane and around the quiet neighborhood located behind The White Dove. Having moved up from Brooklyn little over a year ago and having lived in urban environments for 20 plus years prior to that, the silent beauty of the Catskills and small town charm of Woodstock make my heart sing. Yesterday, even though it was a bit overcast, I found the final colorful death throes of the leaves and foliage were particularly stunning. And then this morning I awoke to brilliant sunny blue skies, coupled with the first snow of the season. I hate to keep all this beauty to myself. Come up to the Catskills! Get out of the city. There's plenty to see and enjoy year round here in Woodstock and the Hudson Valley........even just a quiet in town walk can do your soul and body good.......
