Scene in Plattsburgh - Style & Substance

Yes, things are happening in Plattsburgh! The summer season is beginning with a lot of promise that will enliven our downtown, get people together and inspire us to continue to meet and engage in the life of our community. When people comment that, “nothing is happening in Plattsburgh”, they have somehow missed the latest action – Vision2Action!

V2A is a collection of people committed to the idea of creating a community for now and for our children, grandchildren, and beyond. The Arts, Transportation, Recreation, and Education are the four core areas that intersect to form the heart of a “vibrant community where families can thrive.” First Fridays is a V2A summer plan to get everyone out to celebrate the warmth in downtown Plattsburgh. The action begins Friday, June 7 and will continue on the first Fridays in July and August with music, outdoor eating, and summer fun.

Free Advice Nights

…Back by popular demand, Style & Substance will be giving “free advice” on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7 at the Champlain Wine Company for the summer season, beginning on May 29 and on each First Friday! You might wonder, “What is free advice night – what does it look, feel and taste like?” Perhaps it tastes like Full Sail Red, a delicious local wine found at The Champlain Wine Company. Or choose from a variety of local reds and whites. Enjoy your selection while sitting outside and really connecting with the downtown scene. Gathering at the Wine Company last summer, we found the cast of regulars and newcomers was an inspiration. Giving and getting advice, sharing a glass of local wine, having a laugh, or sharing a concern is what this authentic forum provides. Stop by with old friends and connect with new!

Free Advice was developed to fulfill a lifelong dream of Sally’s; to have a free advice booth, inspired by Peanut’s character, Lucy. Unlike Lucy, Sally listens with compassion, doesn’t pull the football away at the last minute, and you get to keep your 5 cents.

Our “Scene in Plattsburgh” column over the summer will highlight our guests. Hope to see you there!
