Those who wonder how local restaurants get fresh fish way want to go on a tour of a fish market with Jim Ely, owner of Riverview Restaurant. That’s just one of the gifts to bid on at the Philipstown Garden Club’s Silent Auction, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., Friday, May 3, at Boscobel in Garrison. The Silent Auction is open to the public.
Other items include a September 2013 vacation at Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid; high-end jewelry; tickets to Yankees-Red Sox games, New York Giants games, the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic. If pampering is your thing then there are gift certificates for spas, salons, interior design consultations, voice lessons, reflexology, personal training and restaurants. You can even pamper your dog with gift certificates for dog grooming.
