About and Around




Little Prince Bar


The City Vineyard at Pier 26

The wrap up of warm weather is causing us to feel a bit nostalgic over dining outdoors.  We have been eating al fresco meals at home nearly every chance we can get.  If you find yourself in NYC please stop by these places.






Welcome Messages

Reading a few of my favorite Blogs, I am almost never tired of unique al fresco dining decor.  This blog is full of inspiration. Outside my front porch, my hydrangeas have been growing quite beautiful. I have to admit, I am quite proud.  The goal  is to nurture them through this Summer season.  Every day when I drive up the driveway and see them they Welcome me like a big figurative “hug” from my home.

Outdoor Dining in Westchester

I am a born-bred Westchester County girl living now in Fairfield County.  When I get that nostalgic feeling for HOME, I go back to the water front on the Hudson for good dining and relaxation. AH, Westchester County living!  Here is a great evening spent at The Red Hat in Irvington, NY.
