Monastery Vinegar Festival (July 11 and 12)

Monks, with their rigid daily routines and stringent discipline, are known for making some of the most celebrated beers and wines in the word. But, at Our Lady of the Resurrection Monastery (246 Barmore Road in Lagrangeville), the monks craft vinegar. Brother Victor-Antoine is the vinegar virtuoso behind the slow-fermented, artisan elixirs expertly made at the monastery. The vinegars are based on a medieval monastic recipe, and the monastery crafts nearly a dozen different all-organic varieties—this year's newest being a beer vinegar. On July 11 and 12, you will have the opportunity to taste each variety, and bring home a bottle of your own, at the Annual Monastery Vinegar Festival. Last year's festival was attended by several thousand people from all over the country, resulting in bottles being bought out fast. So attendees are encouraged to arrive early at 11am and stay until the festival winds down at 4pm.

    When an artist limits his palate to a few colors, the self-imposed restrictions can create new possibilities. Habits are broken, a new approach grown. Richard Segalman's new book of monotypes, Black and White: Muses, Magic & Monotypes, is a collection of what happened when he limited himself to one color: black.
