Fall Fun!

Don’t get me wrong, I love Fall, the crisp air, the pumpkin spiced everything, fires, apples, BUT I am definitely looking for an activity that doesn’t involve an overcrowded pumpkin patch and a warm beer. Here are some ideas to keep you and your family busy this October

STORM KING ART CENTER

Quick daytrip to this magical outdoor sculpture exhibit and you’ll feel cultured for months.

ONE Hotel

Great blog post from Elements of Style blog had me dying to hop right into an uber and head straight to the One Hotel in NYC ! It has also inspired me to bring that rustic modern cool feel into my own home! Follow her blog for more design ideas, amazing!

Read below for all the details!

I made a trip to NYC about two weeks ago for meetings and since my favorite hotel, The Mark, was booked solid I decided to try this cool looking spot, 1 Hotel, located smack dab on Central Park near just about everything! And it was AWESOME.

The former CEO of Starwood Hotels started this new brand to focus on sustainability and an eco-friendly mindset in the hospitality world.

The decor was so cool- all natural and nature inspired- think tons of woods, concrete, greenery, steel,  leather and wovens.

Even the room keys were cool- these little wood disks instead of plastic cards!

The room was small-ish but so perfectly turned out- with an comfy and adorabel window seat perfect for blogging 🙂  The bathroom was made of steel and glass walls (but with a curtain you could pull for privacy because lets face it, we don;t all want to watch our significant other use the bathroom- ugh).

Wood floors, beams and furniture throughout and amazing marble showers.

They even offered up cozy cable knit socks instead of slippers and had a yoga mat in the room for post- travel stretching. GENIUS.

And the restaurant, Jams, was GORGEOUS, packed with cool people and the food was delicious (granted, I got a room service burger but it was AMAZING).

Even the elevators were cool- with bark covered walls!

I loved this spot (and even got taken to Penn Station in a Tesla, the hotel’s courtesy car!)  And no, they did not sponsor this at all- I paid for everything so this is an honest-to-blog opinion. 🙂

If you love the look of this hotel, here are some suggestions as to how to bring it into your own space:

Saltaire

Saltaire is looking good and we cant wait to try it out!

Opening at the end of this month

We popped in the other day and things are coming along, we were not able to look at the menu but were told that the oysters, fresh fish and wine will be out of this world! Click Here for more info !

Not to mention the atmosphere, in an 18th Century historic grain warehouse…30 ft ceilings…oh my

Farm to Table…

Just one of the many reasons why

 – I HEART HARRISON –

The menu is FRESH, CHANGES DAILY and is FARM TO TABLE!

Your Family should really BOWLMOR…

Just add Bowlmor to the list of NYC names that have made their way north.  All those folks (and friends) in NYC always think we live a boring existence out here…..they are all wrong.

I recently went to BOWLMOR in Norwalk . Great spot! Kids, family day , adults everyone will enjoy it. Not your typical Saturday afternoon bowling experience….think waiters bringing you food and drinks, laser tag and a great game room.  They are opening in White Plains soon too!

We Hear…….

that Blue Ribbon is coming to Port Chester…. Don’t hold us to this but several spies have indicated the beloved restaurant group has started work directly next to the Capitol Theatre and might even have a partnership with the theatre?!!?
