rail river hudson composite for 2015 promo

Rail, River, Hudson -- July 11. Tickets are limited.

Update: Sold out!

We're a little more than two weeks away from the All Over Albany Rail, River, Hudson II adventure, and plans for a great day are shaping up nicely.

If you've been meaning to get your tickets, now would be a good time. Last year's event sold out, and space for this year's trip is limited.

In addition to the Amtrak trip, Dutch Apple sunset cruise, cocktail party at Helsinki Hudson, and other fun surprises, Sweet Sue's of Troy will be catering the trip home.

Here's a look at the menu she's planning:

+ Moroccan Lamb Sliders with Taziki and Arugula
+ Chicken Salad w/ Walnut Cranberry, Dill
+ Mustard Egg Salad
+ Tuna Salad w/ pickled Onion
+ Summer Rice Paper and Lettuce Wraps with Sesame and Nori (V,GF)
+ Merlot Poached Pears and Plums with Almonds, Cherve, and Apricote Vinigarette (V,GF)
+ Chilled Strawberries, Honey, Pine Nuts and Mint with Spinach Chiffinod (V,GF)

Oh, and homemade strawberry shortcake.

The price for the entire day -- round trip tickets, tastings, party, and dinner -- is just $65 per ticket, thanks to our sponsors. You'll find them listed below.

I still don't know why it has to look like a spaceship. There are countless downtown theaters that fit in aesthetically with their surroundings. I was just in Arlington, Massachusetts and they have a six screen theater in a building fronted with a bakery, a toy store, a salon... Thinking that theaters can only look like suburban malls shows either a lack of imagination or a lack of awareness.
