Before joining the Travel desk five years ago, he had been an editor on the media and sports desks and wrote the cocktail column called "A Quiet Drink." He had his first bar-related job at age 6 at the Lincoln Tap, his grandfather's bar in St. James, Minnesota, where he was occasionally allowed to hand a beer to a thirsty patron. He did not receive a salary but did get free Sun-drop sodas.

Wednesdays at 1:30pm; Fridays at 1:45pm

The Rye Arts Center is committed to making the arts accessible to those with varying abilities and backgrounds.  These specialized classes stimulate mind, body and emotion in an enjoyable and safe environment. They offer participants the opportunity to learn from professionally trained dancers about stretching and strengthening muscles, with an emphasis on enhancing physical awareness and grace through modern, ballet and folk dance forms.

Dance for Parkinson’s was launched in June 2011 and replicates the Mark Morris Dance Company’s award-winning Dance for PD® program.  Dance instructors at The Rye Arts Center are specially-trained through The Mark Morris Dance Company in Brooklyn.  Feedback and attendance from this class has shown that people no longer feel classified as patients, but as dance students and are empowered to take charge of their own well-being. They feel more fluid, confident and graceful in their movements using modern, ballet and folk dance forms. Free.
