Brewster or Southeast? Both Have Fun Things to do
We ❤ both, but Brewster, New York is the Wolf "Hometown of the Week".
Over the last few weeks, anytime we've spun the "wheel O' towns" some sort of controversy has broken out! Every Monday on the Wakin' Up with CJ and Jess Show, we spin our hand-made wheel of towns to pick one town in the Hudson Valley and greater Danbury area we can celebrate as the Wolf hometown of the week.
Last week we had confusion with Beekman and Poughquag, this week more confusion broke out after we welcomed Gary on the air from Goshen. He picked Goshen and after Jess gave it a spin it landed on Brewster. To get our celebration of Brewster underway we wanted to know if there is something we need to do, or try if we are ever in Brewster.
Right out of the gate we learned that Brewster is a village in the the town of Southeast. Brian told us that everyone in the 10509 zip code, including the post office refer to the town as Brewster, not Southeast. He told us that even the postmarks the post office puts on mail say Brewster, not Southeast.
Regardless of what you want to call it, there is some cool history and some really fun things that you can do in Brewster, or Southeast.
Ice Skating is Alive and Well in Brewster
Sean in Pawling texted us that if you like to ice skate, or maybe play ice hockey, the Brewster Ice Arena is the best place to do it. They must be doing something right as they have been serving the "skating" community for 23 years. They're located at 63 Fields Ln, Brewster.
Tilly Foster Farm
Joe called the show to tell us about the Tilly Foster Farm which was a farm museum for many years. It's now home to "Putnam County's premier education and farm to table dining experience. Food and education, I love it!! They're located at 100 NY-312, Brewster.
Local Farm Stands
Linda from Warwick texted us, "There is a great little gem in Brewster/Southeast. It’s called the R & G Farm stand. They are at 997 route 22 Brewster NY. In the Levine’s auto parts lot. Every Saturday until Thanksgiving. Lots of fresh veggies and fruit, bread eggs and more. Love getting my fresh veggies there from Mike!"
Old School Drive-In Restaurant & Hardware Store
Dawn from Brewster told us about two places we should definitely checkout, the Red Rooster in Brewster. A throw back drive-in type restaurant offering great burgers, shakes and more. They are located at 1566 NY-22, Brewster. She also mentioned, "Palmer Brothers Hardware! Nice family run local store!"
