L’shanah Tovah! Celebrate Jewish New Year with family, minus the hassle of tiresome, daylong preparations. 8 North Boradway in Nyack has you covered for a five-course Mediterranean-style Rosh Hashana dinner, combining Jewish traditions like slow braised brisket with the restaurant’s signature plates, like a chickpea kale Caesar salad and house-made falafel. The special dinner menu runs the length of the holiday, until Oct. 4.   


Rail-Trail Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, Poughkeepsie/Highland

As reported in our September issue, the 18-mile Hudson Valley Trail Network was voted into Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s (RTC) Rail-Trail Hall of Fame. During an induction ceremony on Tuesday, the three-trail network, inclusive of the Hudson Valley Rail Trail, Walkway Over the Hudson and William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail, will officially join 29 national landmarks in obtaining this prestigious achievement. Head to Walkway Over the Hudson’s Center Overlook for the chance to be a part of American history, and while you’re there, get in on the free refreshments.

Trivia Night at LAX Restaurant & Lounge, Albany

All those years obsessing over Jeopardy have brought you to this moment. Channel your inner Alex Trebek and put your random knowledge skills to the test. Plus, crazy drink specials like $5 margaritas and $3.50 Shmaltz pints will help bump the hump out of your mid-week blues. Trivia tournaments go down every Wednesday, starting at 7:30 pm.

Thirsty Thursday takes new meaning at The Turning Point in Piermont, with a night of smooth sounds to quench even your driest performance parch. Between the bluegrass folk styles of singer/songwriters Abbie Gardner and Marc Douglas Berardo, Rockland’s most notable music venue will come alive with stories of classic love, to strange tales of expatriates in Florida rum bars.
