Two Events to Start the Long Weekend

Tomorrow at the cocktail hour, Historic Hudson invites everyone down to the Dunn warehouse by the river for "Drinks on the Waterfront." Under a tent in the yard of this historic industrial building, one of the few remaining on the Hudson waterfront, enjoy a selection of Central European wines from Hudson Wine Merchants, paired with delectable late summer food from Talbott & Arding Cheese and Provisions--while experiencing one of the last days of summer in this unique riverfront setting.

The Dunn warehouse, located at the intersection of Broad and Water streets, just across from Henry Hudson Riverfront Park, was built in the early 1850s as the "Engine Shop" for the Hudson & Boston Railroad. The building's stabilization and restoration is one of the priority projects in Hudson's proposed BRIDGE District, which was recently awarded $10 million in Governor Andrew Cuomo's Downtown Revitalization Initiative. Its adaptive reuse is recognized as the first phase in reimagining Hudson's riverfront park.

The event, which takes place from 4 to 7 p.m., on Friday, September 1, is a benefit for Historic Hudson, enabling the organization to continue its advocacy for Hudson's unique architectural and cultural past and its vibrant future. There is still time to secure your place at the party. Click here to purchase tickets.

Saturday afternoon brings another chance to party for a good cause. On Saturday, September 2, the Columbia-Greene Garden Party, the signature outdoor fundraising event for the Alliance for Positive Health, takes place in Claverack, at the home of acclaimed film director James Ivory.

The garden party, which takes place from 3 to 6 p.m., features an exquisite atmosphere, gourmet samplings, live entertainment, a fabulous array of silent auction items, and is attended by both Capital Region and New York City residents. For more information and to make your reservation, click here.
