HUDSON, N.Y. -- With a snow emergency in effect in Hudson, residents were looking for a place to stay warm and grab a drink – it is, after all, a Friday night!
Spotty Dog, a popular bar and bookstore fit the bill. The snowstorm was the main topic of conversation at the business.
"I'm definitely excited about hot chocolate yeah, so I like snow and a good blizzard is a good blizzard," said Bartended Andy Aidekman.
Over at Grazin', a restaurant just a couple blocks away, the owner Dan Gibson told NEWS10 the white stuff is hurting his bottom line.
"It has been a little bit slower. The regulars are here, they know about us, they're always here but the people that tend to come up from the city, for example on the weekend, aren't here today," said Gibson.
That means a little less prep work for Gibson and his chef.
"We haven't made as many soups as we usually do or prepared as many burgers as we usually do," said Gibson.
