Another trend for 2013: the vegetable plate is not just for vegetarians anymore. Apropos this trend, January has been declared Falafel Awareness Month. Falafel, of course, is the vegetarian street food--never just for vegetarians--that found its way to Hudson two years ago. To celebrate Falafel Awareness Month, Park Falafel & Pizza is offering free falafel all month long. All you have to do to get your free falafel is go to the Park Falafel website and enter your email address. You will receive a coupon good for one free falafel sandwich which you can redeem at Park Falafel & Pizza, 11 North 7th Street, through January 31. So start the year off right and indulge yourself with what has been called "one of the world's most perfect foods."
This blog takes its name from the 1850 novel by Hudson author Alice B. Neal. The original Gossips of Rivertown cast a gimlet eye on Hudson society in the mid-19th century. More than a century and a half later, the new Gossips carries on the spirit of the original, but in a different genre and with a different focus.
