4 Rooftop Bars You Won’t Want to Miss!

Tuesday, June 9, 2020 1:00 PM by Kendall Knaak

There’s just something about a rooftop bar that makes the drinks taste better, the conversations livelier and the experience elevated (quite literally!). With the gorgeous panoramic views of the Finger Lakes region, we love seeing our number of rooftop bars continue to rise.

Please remember that social distancing guidelines are still in place. Keep yourselves and our community safe by following all rules and regulations! 

Does this sound familiar? 

You’ve turned on Netflix to discover you have no idea what to watch. Your last bottle of whatever-brand-you-could-find Sauvignon Blanc has just been emptied. You want to keep social distancing, but where do you go from here? 

For all of us, Mother’s Day is going to look a bit different this year. You may have been spending extra time with your mom than normal or unable to see her due to distance or because one (or both!) of you are essential workers. No matter how your Mother’s Day might look this year, here are 7 ways to show your mom, or the maternal figure in your life, just how much they mean to you! Many will even offer shipping right to her front door. 

For over 50 years and counting...the great Naples Grape Festival has transformed the quaint, peaceful village of Naples, NY into the center of the universe for one amazing weekend in September.

Walk into the vineyard life!

The Heron Hill Tasting Room at Bristol is offering a unique opportunity this summer to walk through a Finger Lakes vineyard and learn about the grape-growing cycle. Every Sunday through August 14, you can join Finger Lakes Community College viticulture student Andrew Mavromatis in the Ingle family vineyards overlooking Canandaigua Lake and the Bristol Hills.

A few weeks ago my wife asks me, “Let’s spend the day down in Naples and do something fun?”  I replied, “Sounds like a plan!” Having a 7 month old and in the midst of remodeling our kitchen - time poverty was high in the “Lee” household. 

The next challenge, secure a babysitter. Success! We found a babysitter and had 4 hours to experience Naples! We know that isn't enough time but off we went. I planned a quick itinerary in my head that started us out in South Bristol and finished in the heart of Naples.  To my surprise, the majority of these upcoming stops my wife had never experienced before and that was about to change!
