I can't tell you how much I wish I had won the mega millions over the holiday. If I had I know what I would be spending part of the money on. I just found out that one of my favorite places in my hometown of Cornwall-on-Hudson is up for sale, Painter's Tavern at 266 Hudson Street in the heart of the Village.

Believe it or not a few decades back I looked at buying this business before it was Painter's Tavern. I grew up in the Village of Cornwall and back in the late 80s and early 90s the building now known as Painter's Tavern was up for sale as the Cornwall Inn. At that time a friend of mine and I thought it would be fun to buy it. Unfortunately, we were too young to take on that much building.

Obviously, we didn't buy it but the original owners of Painter's Tavern did and those gentlemen started what has turned into a popular place for people to go to eat, drink and celebrate just about everything. So many updates and renovations have been done since I toured it in the early 90s and now it is up for sale and looking for the next barkeep and innkeeper.
