It's just too easy to sit around and lament Rochester's winter weather. We all live here; we know how cold and snowy it is outside. We know the feeling of slush in our shoes. We know what it is to scrape the car off every time we park it. Enough already.
If you've forgotten that winter can, in fact, be an enjoyable time of year, CityNewspaper is here, like a Saint Bernard with a brandy flask. With our Winter Guide clamped between your mittens, you'll fall in love with winter all over again. Our writers will guide you through all the season has to offer with a firm but gentle hand.
Imagine the wild winter wind in your face as you travel through the woods at 60-plus miles an hour. Contributing writer Mike Doser will help complete the picture with his profile of snowmobiling and some of its more passionate enthusiasts. Jennifer Weiss will give us a guide to the six best ways to celebrate our extravagant winter season with festivals near and far.
Susan Herman knows that becoming a winter hermit is a whole lot more fun with a carefully chosen pile of movies, books, and music. So she's asked five of her favorite tastemakers for their suggestions.
City columnist Jennifer Loviglio diverts us with her account of the post-holiday stuff problem: too much stuff, and where to stuff it? Jon Popick knows nothing like he knows movies, so he gives us the skinny on the winter's new releases.
And, because the schedule of classical concerts, museum offerings, art exhibits, and theater and dance performances don't disappear just because it's cold outside, see our expanded classical music and event listings to help plan your own cultural calendar.
So don't forget to enjoy the wonder in this wonderland. It'll be fun, we promise.Explore more of Winter Guide by clicking here!
