At some point you realize experiences are more valuable than objects. That's why, for my birthday last year, I suggested a weekend stay at the fabulous TWA Hotel in lieu of a tangible gift.
This year I'm following the same path and taking Robin to Hudson, NY -- the chic-ist town north of Manhattan. Most inhabitants and store-owners there are originally from the City. Vogue magazine -- VOGUE, of all magazines -- just published an article saying Hudson is the place to go during the pandemic. The town closes main street to cars on weekends and creates a pedestrian paradise.
Since my birthday is next Tuesday we're leaving Friday for the weekend. Saturday is Halloween so bopping around then should be a blast.
Have a happy holiday!
