Spring in the Catskills is off the hook!

Barbara and I sampled hors d’oeuvres and sipped cocktails (featuring Bootlegger 21 Vodka) before joining the throngs waiting to have their portraits taken during an authentic 1920s film noir photo session with ND Pro Media’s Nuby DeLeon. The shots (developed on the spot) came out ultra-cool, and Nuby, along with the chamber, created memories for us all that will last a lifetime. Between the baconstuffed scallops, the salmon canapés and the filet mignon, I barely had room for the cream puffs, cannolis and eclairs that followed, but Dharma had sampled the honey glazed ham and grilled vegetables, too, so dessert was out of the question for her. Between fishing, dancing, wining and dining, my weekend in the Catskills was delightful, delicious and totally off the hook!
