Turn off of Old Niskayuna Road into the driveway of the Pruyn House Histoical and Cultural Center on most any summertime Wednesday evening, and you enter another world filled with the wonderful delights of music, food, drink, dancing and lots of community spirit.
For over a decade, the Friends of Pruyn House have presented a series of four Wednesday “ethnic” nights open to everyone of any age. Italian, German, Irish and, this time around, Polish Night take place on the manicured, garden-filled grounds of the Dutch-American house built in 1830.
Don’t worry, there aren’t any boring historical lectures or long-winded speeches to sit through before the fun and festivities officially begin. Instead, you’ll find families and friends bringing their lawn chairs, blankets and appetites to stake out a piece grass around the Buhrmaster barn.
