The REAL Rhinebeck

I did something Sunday night that very few other people did: I went to Rhinebeck.

No, I wasn't hoping to catch a glimpse of some celebrity still hanging around after the Clinton wedding; and no, I wasn't hoping to be interviewed by some tabloid TV show still looking for a story. Rather, I was looking for — and found — an evening of peace and quiet in a village known for peace and quiet.

Specifically, I went there to catch a movie at Upstate Films, something I love to do on Sundays, and was relieved, upon arriving, to find the sidewalks largely empty and that things were back to normal after the frenzy that had overtaken the village Friday and Saturday. (The clearest sign of normal was that I was able to find a parking space on Montgomery Street, right in front of the theater.)

If you've ever seen a movie at Upstate, you know that a theater staff member usually stands in front of the screen and makes a couple of announcements before the lights go down. On Sunday, the woman handling the task ended her remarks with "And isn't it nice to have our town back?"

I couldn't agree more.

The weekend was a hoot. And those of us who live around here will remember it for years to come. But now it's time to let Rhinebeck get back to being Rhinebeck.
