In 1990, Thomas Yozzo and Chris Moyer met at their fraternity at Bloomsburg University. They got along so well that they'd vacation together with their families over the ensuing years and even discussed opening a business together. They didn't necessarily know what type of business it would be, but they knew they'd be able to work well together, unlike raisins and any known dessert.
In 2009, Thomas suggested they open a distillery, and after years of research, the duo purchased a small farm and apple orchard in 2013. They renovated the farm's 150-year-old barn from the ground up and turned it into the distillery and tasting room. They also used the orchard's four acres of apples to create their apple-based vodka and applejack liquor. Thomas and Chris have created a bourbon as well, and plan on introducing the public to their whiskey and their gin?made with botanicals grown on their farm?as soon as they're ready.
MAC Fitness wants exercise to be accessible to everyone. That's why they designed their program lineup to be so diverse, with offerings that range from special programs for kids to a senior-citizens-friendly Silver Sneakers class. The everyday class schedule is just as varied, with workouts that range from Zumba and kickboxing, to yoga and Pilates. Personal trainers carefully tailor routines to the varying abilities and goals of each student, while those who prefer to workout at their own pace can take full advantage of either of the Kingston locations, which include machines, free weights, and an artificial turf area.
Winemakers from across the state of New York flock to the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest each year, bottles of their finest wines in tow. Hosted on the sprawling Dutchess County Fairgrounds, the two-day festival features food and wine seminars, live music, and tastings of hundreds of local New York and international wines. To fuel the weekend's activities, a variety of specialty food vendors peddle gourmet treats, and local restaurants dole out samplings of some of their best dishes.

Touted as a top music festival by Rolling Stone magazine, Mountain Jam packs more than 50 bands on four stages and 15,000 music spectators in a lush, natural amphitheater nestled in the Catskill Mountains. The ear-pleasing lineup for the 7th-annual festival boasts headliners My Morning Jacket, Southern-rock jam band Gov't Mule, and the eclectic sounds of Michael Franti & Spearhead. While this Groupon is not valid for camping or lodging costs, out-of-towners can camp or sleep in the great indoors in a dizzying array of nearby hotels, lodges, and ski chalets. The health-conscious festival, partially produced by guitar legend Warren Haynes, distracts unruly mouths from asking fellow concert-goers uncomfortable personal questions with a jellybean jar of organic and vegan eats.
