tenpmcurfewBars, restaurants and gyms or fitness centers, as well as any State Liquor Authority-licensed establishment, are now required to close from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. daily. Restaurants will still be allowed to provide curbside, food-only pick-up or delivery after 10:00 p.m., but will not be permitted to serve alcohol to go. The State Liquor Authority will issue further guidance for licensees as to what sales are continued to be permitted.

The Governor also announced that indoor and outdoor gatherings at private residences will be limited to no more than 10 people. The limit will be implemented due to the recent prevalence of COVID spread resulting from small indoor gatherings including Halloween parties. These gatherings have become a major cause of cluster activity across the state. Further, this public health measure brings New York State in line with neighboring states including Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. This new rule is also effective Friday November 13, 2020 at 10:00 p.m.

Scarsdale Business Alliance announces its Holiday Shop & Dine the ‘Dale Raffle line-up from over 50 Scarsdale merchants.

The Scarsdale Business Alliance (SBA) Holiday Shop & Dine the ‘Dale initiative is currently running now through December 31st. During this time, Village businesses are each running their own promotions, offering a variety of sales and special holiday items. By choosing to shop and dine locally, you are investing in our neighborhood and strengthening our community.

A central part of this campaign is the SBA Holiday Raffle, where over 50 local businesses have donated gift cards and items to be raffled off throughout the holiday season. Raffle drawings will begin on Friday, December 4th at this year’s Scarsdale Village “Virtual Light the ‘Dale Event,” and will continue throughout the month. These raffle items are a fabulous way for the merchants to say thank you to our community for their support throughout the pandemic, and also a way to encourage people to continue to shop local.

Raffle tickets are available for purchase for $10 each on the SBA’s website with a package of 6 for $50. Additionally, people can purchase raffle tickets by accessing the scan code located on posters throughout each of Scarsdale’s retail hubs.

This year more than ever, Scarsdale brick and mortar businesses need your support. Due to the global pandemic, certain safety measures will be followed, such as social distancing, mask requirements, and density restrictions. Just like the rest of the country, Scarsdale is expanding the concept of Black Friday to cover the entire period between Thanksgiving and Christmas, as sales will occur over a longer period of time in order to reduce overcrowding. Scarsdale merchants used a similar approach when they expanded the normal 3-day sidewalk sale to a weeklong event.

The SBA has also been shepherding the Mask the ‘Dale Campaign. You can see the signs in each of its SBAHoliday2020storefronts throughout the Village, promoting mask-wearing while shopping.

The SBA is grateful for the partnership they have with Scarsdale Village officials to help its businesses follow Covid restrictions. They continue to work diligently to reimagine outdoor usage of space and have amended town codes to allow display of wares and safe outdoor dining.

The SBA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Village of Scarsdale and its local businesses. Like all other businesses, the SBA suffered financially this year as well. Many merchant members were unable to pay their annual dues, and free provisional memberships were given to all 10583 businesses in order for the SBA to offer its assistance and services to its local businesses. In addition, the Scarsdale Music Festival, the SBA’s largest fundraising event, was cancelled.

Please consider supporting the SBA with your purchase of raffle tickets. Proceeds from the raffle sale will support the Scarsdale Business Alliance and all of its members.

GRAND PRIZEThe Grand Prize went to Alexandra and Leo SimonYoung painters continued a Scarsdale tradition on Sunday October 18, painting the town orange in the annual Halloween Window Painting Contest. Painters from elementary to high school created colorful, comic and intriguing work on the windows of Scarsdale retailers. If you haven't done so already, get out and take a walk to see their work before the rain takes it down.  The contest was orchestrated by Dan Walczewski at the Scarsdale Recreation Department. Congratulations to all the participants on a wonderful gallery of work.

According to Walczewki, about 330 windows were painted. With teams and family entries he estimates that just over 900 people participated in the event. There were more entries this year that last, especially in the Family category.  The judges are a group of seven volunteers who all are either current or former Scarsdale residents or village employees.

Below find the complete list of winners and honorable mentions by all age groups from the Recreation Department.
