Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Scavenger Hunt Reports for Thursday, March 14


We have a few more blog posts and Tweets from people having fun on our Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Scavenger Hunt! You can keep up with all the totals on our page here: Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Scavenger Hunt Point Tallies.

And here’s a look at our 10 challenges. Get the most points and be entered to win gift certificates to local restaurants!

Here’s a look at what’s new from the past couple of days:

Donna Monaco Olsen headed to Iron Horse Grill, where she racked up 350 points. She loved the braised short ribs and Hudson Valley duck and took a photo with chef Philip McGrath.

Margaret Rizzuto was at Myong in Mount Kisco, where she brought back beautiful photos of the bi bim bop, which she declared the best she ever had.

She added 100 points to her total. Margaret got another 100 points with her visit to The Hudson House in Cold Spring. She took blogger Patrice Costa along, so we’ll give Patrice those points, too!

Sharon MacGregor loved her meal at Barnaby’s Steakhouse in New Paltz, and she and her husband spied Sprout Creek Farm cheese and Millbrook chardonnay on the menuy, racking up 275 points in the meantime!

We received this tweet from DMG @mrgoodmaker, who gets 50 points for naming a drink made with locally distilled spirits:

Keep ’em coming folks!
