A Quick Connect with Shaul Dover

A Quick Connect with Shaul Dover

Shaul Dover never considered a career in the music industry – he owned a successful leather goods business. But, as the expression goes, if you want to make God laugh, tell her your plans. In the early 2000s, Dover stumbled into the music industry, opening Sweatshop Studios in Katonah. He’s recorded a variety of famous musicians, from our own Rob ...

How to Talk to Your Spouse About Money

By Gia Miller Studies have shown that most people would rather talk about sex and death than their money. But when you’re sharing a home and a life, those financial conversations are important, no matter how uncomfortable they might be. “Money is such an emotional topic,” says Judi McAnaw, a financial advisor for Edward Jones in Armonk. “But you should ...

Stop Dieting and Start Eating Well

Stop Dieting and Start Eating Well

By Gia Miller Diet – it’s a four-letter word that makes a lot of people cringe. Some people spend their life uttering that word, others do it before milestone events so they “look good in the pictures,” and there are those who avoid it altogether. Regardless of which category you fall into, most of us know diets don’t really work ...

The Newest Home Trend: Optimizing Spaces

The Newest Home Trend: Optimizing Spaces

The economy and current events heavily influence our homes. We can thank the end of the 1918 flu pandemic and World War I for the glitz and glamour of the 1920s. The stark modernism of the 1930s is due to the Great Depression and the beginning of World War II. The rebelliousness of the 1960s brought bold, youthful colors and ...

Fast forward 18 years  – the Guevaras never made it back to ...

Part of their Charm: The Blazer

Alice O’Leary Kerrigan has a theory: If she was in business school and received an assignment to develop a restaurant concept, The Blazer’s business model would fail. “If my plan was to use plastic tablecloths and paper placemats, have a two-page menu that should technically be one but the font is just really big, not offer dessert, be located in ...

Every town deserves a good bakery – a place where neighbors can go for delicious cookies, fluffy pastries, a range of breads and to decompress while they sip a steaming cup of coffee. BreadsNBakes is all these things, and more. It’s a friendly place where the staff enjoy a good back-and-forth banter with each other and the customers. The coffee, ...

Hey Harvest Fest, Blues Traveler Would Like Some Pita Chips, Please

When The Pound Ridge Partnership asked us if we’d like to interview Blues Traveler guitarist Chandler Kinchla (who goes by Chan), we said yes, of course.

Forty minutes later, we’d covered everything from ...
