The View @ New Cavu | Walkill, NY

Mission possible! Where else can you have a fab dinner and skydivers land right in front of you? At Nu Cavu in Walkill, NY!! Mark your summer calendars now my friends.

Nu Cavu is a great Italian restaurant located on the Kobelt Air Field in Walkill, NY. If you time it right, you can have your dinner and enjoy the skydiving show! If you're really lucky and enter the raffle, you can win a tandem flight that very evening!!

Here they come.....

I visited Nu Cavu with my brother one evening last year. It was a rainy evening so I didn't expect to see the skydivng at all, but it eventually cleared up and there they were...suiting up! Skydive The Ranch takes off from and drops in on the air field in front of Nu Cavu. It's really a wonderful experience...I would never skydive myself...way too chicken!! Watching others jump is different, although I still get anxious for them...Yikes!! I won't even get in a prop plane let alone jump out of one!!

The planes take off...then about 15-20 minutes later everyone in the restaurant starts moving outside (unless your table is already outside on the lovely patio). You start to see little dots appear in the distance and then they get by one each skydiver lands and the crowd erupts into applause and cheers (with drink in hand!)...not only because they landed safely, but also because many times they are competing to see who can land in or nearest a set circle...the closest wins prizes!! Yay

Great Sunset too!!!

Besides the skydiving, Nu Cavu hosts many other events and has live bands every Friday and karaoke on Saturday evenings. They are open for Dinner Wednesday - Sunday from 4pm until 10pm. Lunch is served Wednesday - Sunday and from 11:30 am until 4pm. Bar is open until 2am on Friday and Saturday nights! I hear the bar scene is lively later on but of course it's way past my bedtime..hehe  

I had a great evening at Nu Cavu and can't wait to go back when it warms up!
