The best business deals are those that start out with two parties each needing what the other can offer.

He needs about 40,000 square feet of space for his food processing business. Jim Hull, owner of 36 malls in the nation, has that much space — and more — available at the Hudson Valley Mall three minutes away across Route 9W. Will the two get together? They’re working on it.

Kingston After Dark: Jack and The Jennifer Shop

The stellar and melodic indie rock band called The Jennifer Shop is one of the most incredible new musical acts in the area.

The songs just swirled with life and enthusiasm, reminding listeners of heartfelt moments or the excitement of tackling new frontiers. This up-and-coming band is appearing at BSP on 1/24 alongside popular act JK Vanderbilt.
