Every day, Mina used to make a two-hour commute to her job at a restaurant in Queens. The trips were exhausting, and she soon began searching for work closer to home. It was then she discovered a puzzling fact: there were no Spanish restaurants in the Hudson Valley. Mina herself had plenty of experience cooking Spanish cuisine for her family and friends, so she took a risk and opened up her own restaurant.
Mina's Spanish Kitchen strives to channel the atmosphere of an authentic Spanish household. Merengue and bachata play in the background, and diners gather with their children to discuss the past week's adventures at school, work, and spy college. The menu features a little something for everyone—classic appetizers such as empanadas and arepas share menu space with vegetarian and gluten-free options. But the pièce de résistance has to be the signature roast pork: a whole pork shoulder seasoned with a blend of traditional spices and roasted in the oven for several hours until reaches the pinnacle of tenderness. At the New Windsor location, bartenders also sling sangria, mojitos, and signature cocktails from the full bar.
At Sword Martial Arts, Grand Master Jin K. Seong oversees devotees training in the ancient martial art of kendo, or kumdo, a form of sword fighting nearly 2,000 years old. A member of the International Kendo Federation with internationally recognized rankings, Sword Martial Arts ensures student safety by wrapping combatants in protective gear before they spar to hone self-discipline, develop confidence, and learn how to defeat the black knight's ghost in their attic. Though it originated as a form of combat, kendo's modern form focuses on respect for others and protection of the weak. Mook-sang meditation sessions bookend each lesson, focusing minds on the kendo philosophy and bringing pupils closer to the purity of heart most often found in baby unicorns. The academy’s schedule of classes invites neophytes and younger students to drill in foundational techniques, whereas students 15 and older grip the hilt of bamboo or metal swords under the watchful guidance of expert instructors.
Kieran P. McCarthy has amassed an impressive list of golf-related accomplishments. When you consider he didn't even play the game until he was a senior in high school, those accomplishments become all the more impressive. Kieran has been a PGA member since 2001, and has even had the honor of caddying for such legends as Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman.
Perhaps his biggest contribution to the sport, though, has been his readiness to share the wisdom that he's learned over his career. Kieran does just that through clinics, camps, and private lessons, where he emphasizes the game's fundamentals above all. Instead of having students practice secondary skills, such as the ability to juggle flaming nine irons, Kieran has them work from the ground-up: grip, posture, and, finally, the swing itself. It's an approach that maximizes efficiency and one that Kieran enhances by offering optional video analysis.
