Now, here are some of the awesome places you could be eating (and drinking) at. Fill your mug at The Peekskill Coffee House, a trendy joint with coffee made from perfectly roasted, organic beans. Pair your latte, espresso, tea, or whatever beverage you prefer with the tastiest crepes on this side of the globe, savory or sweet! On weekends, local artists liven up the shop with acoustic music.

The culinary goodies don’t stop there. You could be eating at 12 Grapes, a wine bar with some down-right scrumptious food from all over the map. Here are a few menu options to help you get the idea: Homemade Pappardelle with Beef Short Rib Bolognese, Topped with Ricotta Cheese or Vietnamese Chicken Wings with a Fried Garlic and Fish Sauce Glaze and a side of Pickled Cucumber and Green Mango. Yum! Pair these or any one of the other inspired dishes with a glass of wine and that’s what we call a perfect evening.

But wait, there’s more. If you aren’t completely packed to the gills from coffee, crepes, chicken wings and wine (not necessarily all at once but hey, to each his own) then check out The Quiet Man. Here, it’s all about the beer. Whether you’re washing down a bowl of buttery Shepard’s Pie with a nice tall beer or dipping some bread in a creamy bath of Guinness and mussels, beer is central on the menu. Come on, it really doesn’t get better than that.

If your mouth is watering like ours is, there’s only one thing to do. Enter The Peekskill Weekend Getaway for a chance to eat and drink at all these delicious places for free!
