FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
3FortySeven Welcomes Hudson Music Festival with Performances, Food Trucks and Libations August 9th – 11th
August 5, 2013 (Hudson, New York) – 3FortySeven, architect Michael Davis’ showroom and ode to his passion for antiques and architectural salvage, recently became a destination for the sensory enjoyment of food and during Hudson Music Festival, will be a destination for several scheduled musical performances, food and libations. For a complete schedule of events please visit www.hudsonmusicfest.com.
3FortySeven has secured a limited liquor license for the weekend of August 9 – 11 to coincide with being a venue for musical performances during Hudson Music Festival, the state’s largest free three-day music festival. When asked the hours which 3FortySeven will be serving visitors, owner Michael Davis replied, “We’ll open at noon and close when we’re tired.”
Musical performances occurring at 3FortySeven during Hudson Music Festival will occur in front of the art deco building facing Warren Street. As well as the Festival’s website, a mobile app is available for iPhone and Android devices which focuses on the schedule for the Hudson Music Festival as well as the many other attractions and destinations in Hudson.
Details to date on food and beverage menu items available at 3FortySeven during Hudson Music Festival include food prepared by Miles Vidor of Hudson Grains and Greens; the already popular and operational food truck offerings and for this special weekend, at least six draft beers from local brewers.
The complete food and libations offerings for this special weekend look forward to the opening this Fall of 3FortySeven’s Backbar.
With Food Trucks and the pending opening of BackBar in the Fall, 3FortySeven adds to the local casual dinning scene in Columbia County in an unexpected manner. As the architect and designer of Chef Zak Pelaccio’s recently opened Fish & Game just a few doors from 3FortySeven, Davis is embracing and significantly contributing to the food and design culture in upstate New York.
3FortySeven officially opened September 2011. As a former gas filling station, the art deco structure benefits from having ample frontage suitable for vehicles. Instead of a parking lot, Davis began to welcome Food Trucks even before 3FortySeven officially opened as an antiques and decorative decor showroom.
This summer 3FortySeven expanded the Food Truck offerings and looks towards the opening this Fall of the much-anticipated BackBar with food supplied by Hudson Grains and Greens. The Food Trucks are already on site during regular showroom hours (Thursday thru Sunday) as well as additional days. A neon sign outside of 3FortySeven signals that BackBar will be a destination for “Spirits, Vittles & Strangelove.”
The Food Truck offerings, already on site, range from global to American tastes, similar to the architectural décor offered in the showroom. The vendors and their menus, thus far, with others to be announced, include:
Owners: Miles Vidor and William Smith

Michael Davis’ search for a like-minded partner to create healthy and delicious food uncovered the culinary skills of Miles Vidor. Together, Davis and Vidor envision a healthy bar alternative offering food and drinks throughout the day, from breakfast into late night.
Hudson Grains and Greens, managed by Miles Vidor, will provide local yogurt with granola and berries; quinoa egg burritos, steel cut oatmeal with cinnamon, vanilla, crushed nuts and local maple syrup as well as gourmet coffees to begin the day.
Lunch and Dinner fare will include mainly vegetarian farm to table salads and hearty grains, with fish and poultry menu items and veggie burgers complimented with fine wines, locally brewed beers and cider and small production liquors.
It is anticipated that Backbar will be welcoming visitors six days a week. Additional details will be announced closer to opening.
