Bridge View Tavern has something for everyone. The foodie loves the house smoked meats like pulled pork, brisket, wings and ribs. The beer aficionado comes for the rotating selection of over 20 beers on tap and growlers to take home. Enjoy wine on tap, wine lovers, and sports fans, you’ve got several TVs playing the game of the day. (But they weren’t intrusive for someone like me who doesn’t want to watch the game.) Others come for the spectacular views of the river (even if it’s a tad industrial with the old GM plant right in view). And kids love the kids menu with pot of super cheesy mac and cheese.
Try a beer over the Hudson and a host of scrumptious comfort food.
Straight-up scary fun for older kids and adults.

It reminded me of how much I love it too — so I found myself there with my sister and son last week. [...]
Pirates are Set to Swashbuckle their way through Sleepy Hollow.
Remember the 1985 movie “The Goonies“? A group of pre-teens find an old map, and to save their homes from demolition, they go on an adventure to unearth One-Eyed Willy’s hidden treasure. It was a hit for the same reason that “Pirates of the Caribbean” is coming out with a fifth sequel: Pirates make a child’s imagination run wild.
At this pirate-themed festival, kids of all ages can trade barbs with boisterous pirates — and learn how to joust like one too! They can eat “Eye Patch Scream” (ice cream) or drink “Mermaid Tears” (lemonade), but beware: thieving pirates may try to steal your booty. [...]
