Nejaime’s Wine Cellars

60 Main St,
Lenox, MA 01240

My favorite wine store in Tanglewood. The food they offer is more suitable for picnic. The $39.99 for 4 bottle of World Wide Stout beer. Oh boy.

The Applewood smoke duck is really good. So it the Rosali cracker and salmon.

Rhinebeck, New York

We drive by from Hyde Park on Route 9 from FDR’s home to Tanglewood. The downtown is pretty neat, quaint. It is well known for the culinary Institute too.

First Friday of August, the parking lot @ Franklin Roosevelt’s home is full, on a stormy afternoon. We ‘re driving to Tanglewood on Route 9 from Poughkeepsie.

Join the FDRs for an afternoon tea, or reading?

Walkway over the Hudson – Calling Google

Walkway Over the Hudson,
Poughkeepsie, NY 12601

On our way to Tanglewood, we made a stop at Poughkeepsie, fully prepared to walk over the New Jersey.
First, it is NOT on the map of iPhone and Google map – the bridge is opened in 2010.
Second, 1/4 to NJ, we are told to turn back because of the impending storm. Oh well. A snake disappearing.

We missed the direction, and ended up at Hoffman by Route 9The small parking lot cost $5 for 4 hours. The north of the bridge is in construction. What would it be?

Tanglewood, MA

297 West St,
Lenox, MA 01240

We haven’t been to Tanglewood for a few years. And the forecast says rains on both days. However, both days turn out to be great. There are many upgrades. The compound is very nicely kept. I’m wondering, where is New York Philharmonic’s dig away from Lincoln Center?

Seiji Ozawa Hall

Ozawa served as the music director for BSO for 29 years, guess he deserves a hall named after him @ Tanglewood. It is gorgeous, inside and out.  I prefer to sit outside because I can hear the sound of trees, its leaves and wind. I’ve never been there at night, so I can’t speak about stars. It will be next time.
