RECORD-REVIEW "Talk of the Town"


Oh, My Goodness! It’s true! A new deli and café will soon be opening next to the fire house in Scotts Corners. The fare will include sandwiches, salads, hot food, dinners-to- go, paninis, wraps, gelato, lattés, smoothies, and health shakes.

“We’re going to offer traditional deli, along with heart-healthy, figure-friendly foods,” said Perry the proprietor/entrepreneur. Oh, My Goodness! will also have a full line of gluten-free foods. Oh, my! Stay tuned for additional upcoming scoop on the opening.

Feeling computer savvy… or NOT?? Hiram Halle Library is offering two adult computer instruction seminars. Come learn how to navigate the information super highway on July 17 and 31, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Register for one session only by calling 764-5085.

And while we’re thinking books, did you happen to whiz through all of your beach reading while on vacation? Hiram Halle Library will hold its Summer Book Sale on Saturday, July 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You’ll find everything you need to restock the shelves—children’s and young adult, current fiction and non-fiction, coffee table books, gardening, and cookbooks. Here’s your chance to load up on audio books, DVDs, videos, and CDs. All books are $1, unless otherwise marked. This is the perfect first stop to make for the next rainy day.

Incidentally, a New York Times article in June 1881 curiously parallels our current weather system. “ . . . The month of June of this year has so far beaten the record of all other Junes in the matter of rain-storms. May closed with rain, and June opened with the same kind of weather … Those who sell umbrellas in such a season as this would be cheerful and happy, but they complain that the rain has produced nothing but an unusually large crop of umbrella borrowers.”
The Town of Pound Ridge Recreation Department and Neighbor to Neighbor (herein known as N2N) cordially invites you to their 11th Annual N2N Senior Picnic on Friday, July 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Pound Ridge Town park picnic area (near the pool). Come listen and dance to live music. See old friends and meet new neighbors. Our awesome Recreation Department and Scotts Corners Market will provide the food and beverages. Handicapped parking available. For more information, or if you need transportation to the Town Park, don’t be shy. Call Louise Paolicelli at 447-0021.

And speaking of N2N, there’s a whole smattering of fun summer activities on the docket. Get out your calendar and mark down the “Lobster Fest at Stew’s” on Thursday, July 23; “PepsiCo Sculpture Gardens” on Monday, July 27; “A Day at Compo Beach” on Tuesday, August 4; and “Shop at The Westchester” on Monday, August 17. N2N provides transportation, and you can either bring or buy lunch. All trips leave from the Pound Ridge Town House. Louise Paolicelli has any and all info you might need. (See cell phone number above.)

And finally, wanna dance? Trinity Psychotherapy, Yoga & Dance: For the Mind, Body & Soul at 34 Westchester Avenue in Scotts Corners also features Latin dance instructor Chris Alvarez who will teach you how to shake your bootie to the rhythm of Salsa, Mambo, Meringue, Cha Cha, Samba, Hustle, and Swing. Group classes are Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. He is also available for private lessons, and to dance host at parties and special events.

“Teaching dance begins and ends with my love of music,” Chris said, “My main objectives are getting people over the fear of dancing, realizing that they can do it, and that it’s a fun way to stay fit. For me, one of the greatest things was also learning how to lead a lady in an elegant manner.” Summer’s here. Put a little sizzle in your dance step. Call Chris Alvarez at 845-489-3729.
