THE (ANNUAL) BACKYARD SALE

Steals and Deals up at George Platt Field (on Church Street, behind the Village shops) all day long, rain or shine. (It's tented, and there's plenty of parking.) Fantastic finds from over a dozen participating A-List merchants, designers, and dealers. (I personally like the after 1:00 PM "make-me-an-offer" hour!)

BOOK SIGNING AND PASTA EATING

After the Backyard Sale has exhausted you and made you famished, come meet Hudson, New York chef and writer Colu Henry and photographers Jen and Taylor Peden as they take you on a culinary journey from Brooklyn to Italy.

With fresh, local ingredients sourced by The Smithy, and using fab kitchen tools and gadgets supplied by New Preston Kitchen Goods, Colu will guide you step-by-step through quick, simple, and delicious pasta recipes even I can make. Probably.

All you have to do is sip Proscecco and nibble on delicious pasta. And get the book!
