We are officially in week 2 of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Nearly 200 of the region’s top restaurants are offering three-course dinners for $29.95 & lunches for $20.95. This is such a great deal! I made a reservation for the Benjamin Steakhouse in Westchester on Thursday. I’ve never been there before but i’ve heard great things.

Looking for something fun and physically challenging to work towards this summer? Why not try a Spartan Race… It’s a 3+ mile muddy obstacle course race for everyone from beginners to athletes. It tests your limits both physically & mentally. Last summer I did my first one and it was an awesome experience. This summer I plan on getting a group together and going even harder. It may be tough but once you complete it you feel amazing, it’s such a great accomplishment. These races happen nationwide but the nearest one to us in the Hudson Valley is at Tuxedo Ridge ski area on Saturday May 30th & Sunday May 31st 2015. Here is a clip to show you what it’s all about:

It’s amazing where technology is going, especially with mobile payment systems. I was instantly intrigued when I saw someone using this new mobile app and phone case created by LoopPay. It’s similar to Apple Pay in the sense you pay with your phone but different because it already works at over 10 million merchants. The stores don’t need any special connections or anything. You just hold your phone next to where you slide your card and the same magnetic signal is emitted, then your good to go.
Here is a video that explains it all:
The day I saw it I went out and bought it, haven’t looked back since. To find out more info check out LoopPay.com
Everyone have a happy & safe New Years Eve.
