The Return of Winter & the Cambridge Buzz Blog The Return of Winter & the Cambridge Buzz Blog

Guess what? Winter has arrived!!!

Have you been wondering where the Cambridge Buzz has gone? Starting with this post, I will be posting 3 times a week to the blog. Along with news from the Cambridge, NY region and the Battenkill Valley, I am going to bring you movie reviews, DVD suggestions, and musings from around the world. Of course, first I'm taking a few days to go down to Florida to get away from all this cold weather.

Here are some upcoming events that you might want to put on your Calendar:

On Friday, Januray 8, 2010 (that's this Friday) I'm treating myself to a wonderful meal at the Rice Mansion Inn, prepared by Sue from Spoonful Catering. Christine promises that the food and music will flow from 6-9 pm. Think of it, a night off from cooking, cleaning, and figuring out what to eat.

Best of all, this is a LOCAL FOODS DINNER. That means that all the ingredients in Sue's menu will come from right here in the Battenkill River Valley. It's like your neighbors grew this food just for you.

So come on out and enjoy Music by the David Cuite Duo and a meal from Spoonful Catering.

Christine and Sue -- connecting people one bite at a time
See you at the Mansion!
