Where Can I Find That? - Week 3 Where Can I Find That? - Week 3

Dear Eagle Newspaper & Cambridge Buzz Blog,

I was wondering if you could help me find a place where I could take yoga. I have never taken yoga and have been told that it would be good for me because I have back pain.

Thank you.

Dear Yoga wanna be,

First, if you have back pain make sure your doctor is advising you regarding Yoga and not a helpful friend.

The region has much to offer with yoga and other programs specific to movement. Please check with Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, Upstairs at 111 in Greenwich, and Pompanuck in Cambridge all of whom offer classes in yoga and tai chi.

I would also suggest that you check in with the Fitness and Exercise Center in Greenwich and the Cambridge Valley Gym in Cambridge or Curves in either Cambridge or Greenwich to chat about programs they may offer. You might also find the services of the folks at OPEN in Cambridge, Greenwich Therapeutic Massage, and The Right Touch Massage Center in Greenwich.

For Where Can I Find That,

I love the idea of shopping locally and I really do try, but I work in Albany and don’t get home from work until 5p and have a family to fix dinner for, pick up kids and then our weekends seem to be consumed with running the kids and household chores. Have any of the stores thought about staying open late?


Dear Local Shopper,

In speaking with the local retail merchants they find that balancing traditional store hours and extended store hours is difficult due primarily to costs associated with labor and utilities.

The good news is the shops listed below are open for extended hours through the holidays. When you take advantage of the extended holiday hours inquire if the merchant intends to offer later hours after the holidays.

Thursdays, November 20~December 21 until 7:00 p.m.
BellaVino at the Rice Mansion Inn, Deluge Design Stained Glass and Gifts (open Tues-Thurs until 7:00 pm), O’Hearns Pharmacy, Village Store Co-op, and Over the Moon Beads and Gifts (open Wed & Thurs until 7:00 pm).

Fridays, December 5-19th and 22nd & 23rd until 8:00 p.m.
Shoppes in Livery Square including Just Because, The Country Peddler & The Christmas Attic
As well as Main Street shop The Shoppe Keeper who will stay open December 20th -23rd until 8:00 pm and Greenwich Local Market is open 9am-7pm M-Sat.

Saturday, December 13th - shops in the Village will be open until 6:00 pm, stay and enjoy Community Caroling and Tree Lighting at 6:00 pm in Mowry Park followed by Hot Beverages and Cookies in the St Paul's Parish Hall on Main Street

McCartee’s Barn Fine Art and Antiques Open 7 days a week 10:00 am to 5:00 pm TRIP’S in Shushan open Monday-Saturday December 1st - 24th 11:00 am -5:00 pm & Sundays 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm Jackson Traders will be open daily 10am-6pm November 25-December 23
