The Vanderbilt Hotel

Out for a walk with Fido and want to warm up? Hotel Viking is pet friendly, offers seating around their gas fireplace, and has an in-house Lobby Coffee Shop Hill Market and bar.

Weather Stripping

‘Tis the season for finding the window that doesn’t shut all the way or the pesky draft from a door that doesn’t close it used to. This Old House put out a guide that explains the different types of weather-stripping materials and where to use them. They make it seem easy enough that we can all run to Home Depot and give it a shot! Let this be the year that you seal the gaps and stop heating the outdoors!
