The Queen of Kingston, New York, Shows You Around Town

Key to the City BY jane gauger 06/23/2017

Three years ago, artist Theresa Drapkin and her husband took a spur-of-the-moment weekend trip away from NYC that ended up changing their lives. “We wanted to get out of town and randomly got an Airbnb in Kingston, part of the Hudson River Valley. It turned out to be a really funky, cool town, and Michael started looking into real estate right away,” says Theresa. Now they live there full-time, and Theresa spends any moments she’s not painting moody, impressionistic pastel still lifes helping Michael run their dreamy shop Kingston Wine Co.—oh, and visiting all the other ridiculously charming spots around town.

 

Eat

BRUNETTE WINE BAR

 

“This is the place for natural wine and creative snacks. My favorites are the banh mi hot dog topped with cilantro, pickled pink onions, jalapenos, and sriracha mayo and the trout roe nachos.”

 

TONY'S PIZZERIA

 

“Classic in every way. This is the place for overdressed Italian salad, meatballs, and, of course, pizza on red-and-white gingham tablecloths. They have a very local bar scene. You should ask to be served by Donna, who is so warm and always happy to see us. She is like your sweetest aunt!”

 

 

Do Things

CLOVE & CREEK AND HOPS PETUNIA

 

“Kinda like brother and sister shops, these spots share an entrance and compliment each other perfectly. Clove & Creek serves Parlor Coffee, has an awesome selection of outdoorsy products made by local makers, and carries its own body care line. Hops Petunia is owned by the extremely talented florist Kelli Galloway, whose arrangements are wild and beautiful.”

 

KINGSTON WINE CO.

 

“My husband owns the shop, which is heavily focused on European wines with an organic and biodynamic bent. Michael has been interested in natural and traditional winemaking since he began working in wine 2005. One of the first natural-wine importers, Louis Dressner, had a philosophy that really spoke to him, so we do things in that same spirit.”

 

CATSKILL ART SUPPLY

 

“This is where I go for all my artist-supply needs—that includes meeting with my beloved framers, who work on all of my pieces and don't mind using my vintage frames.

 

BARKING DOG ANTIQUES

 

“If you have time on your way in or out of town, I find many of my frames locally at antique shops and the surrounding Hudson Valley, like Barking Dog Antiques in High Falls.”
