Last weekend, I went with my fried and former colleague, Ed, for a drive upstate to Rhinebeck. Every year around this time, we like to escape the city and take in some leaf-peeping and wineries. This year, we strolled around the Sheep & Wool Festival at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds (more photos to come from this event), the local farmer's markets, and also a benefit dinner at the very beautiful and historical Astor Courts for the local Rhinebeck Farmer's Market (making everyone aware that they will be open during the winter now too). Some party pics can be seen here. More of my own photos to come....stay tuned!
