Great Date #8: Get into the Groovy
Ever since Ralph Whitehead and Hervey White came to town in 1902, Woodstock has been synonymous with art — so much so that its name was co-opted by the hippie organizers of a certain three-day Aquarian Exposition 43 miles away, 67 years later. What better place to absorb some culture than in this seminal artsy small town? Start with breakfast at Oriole 9 (they serve up one of the tastiest plates of eggs you’ll ever have), then while away the afternoon at Galerie BMG; the current “New Artists” exhibit features silver prints from Jennifer Schlesinger’s haunting “Object Diaspora” series. In the evening, feast on thin-crust pizza, pumpkin ravioli, and similar contemporary Italian fare at Cucina. Peace, love, and happiness indeed!
