This evening I went to the after-hours event associated with the Ithaca NY, Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce. So many business people gathered around to share, network and enjoy some great food. Simply Red Lakeside Bistro, Collegetown Bagels, Sheldrake Point Winery, Ithaca Beer and Viva Taquiria catered the event serving wonderful food and drink. It was held in The State Theatre in Ithaca NY. This is a beautiful theater built in 1928. It is the last of the theaters which there were 15 of them in Ithaca NY at one point. So many people have donated their time and money to save and renovate this theater. Tonight, a Trumansburg painter, Dan Burgevin was present painting the plaster repair spots. It was supposed to bring all of us closer to the great improvements that have brought this gorgeous theater back to its original beauty.
Continue to support this theater by going to their website and picking out the next show you will attend. During times like this, area residents can't forget all of the good work that has been done to keep great music, theater, and dance in this town. Entertainment presented in this warm, luxurious space is what gets all of us through our winters. Get off the sofa and enjoy your winter. If you live outside of Ithaca, consider staying in my wonderful Finger Lakes Bed and breakfast. The wine trail is open to serve, as well.
