April is in full swing and 2023 is going fast. As spring unfolds we will be getting into our warmer weather routines. Things we weren't able to do over the winter will be back on the calendar.

The same goes for area businesses. Just like at your favorite summer vacation spot, we have places around the Hudson Valley that take a break during the winter. A lot of area restaurants are closed for a few weeks. It gives them time to do upgrades and renovations, but it also gives the staff a chance to go on a well-earned vacation.

Along with the business that takes extended time off there are also a few businesses that actually close in the winter because they are really set up for colder weather. Zulu Time Roof Top Bar at the Thayer Hotel is a perfect example of this kind of place. They are located outdoors on the roof of the hotel so once the weather turns they close up shop until Spring.
