First time in Hudson River Valley. Just 2 days. Highlights?

I am traveling for the first time to Hudson River valley in about a week. Just 2 days. Staying in Rhinebeck. Three ladies are looking for things to look at and eat. We like great food in restaurants that aren't stuffy. We love historic homes, art, museums, and beautiful scenery. I've started to look but it's a bit overwhelming. Looking for suggestions so I can start my working on my 2 day itinerary.

Is it the master cylinder?

While I was driving recently, my brakes went all the way to the floor before fully stopping the car. I drove home at a crawl as the problem continued, then they suddenly started working normally again. I explained this to my usually thorough and helpful mechanic, who has been driving it to test, can’t replicate or find any problem and now insists that it’s fine. Is it weird that I’m reluctant to drive this car? Would you drive it? If it is the master cylinder as the internet suggests, shouldn’t the mechanic be able to figure that out? And also if it is, if the brakes fail again will it be gradual again, or are they likely to fail completely?

Cool spots in Palmdale?

I'm going to be taking a lot of jaunts to Palmdale, CA and I'm having trouble finding cool/homey/divey/funky places to hang out and drink or etc. Lancaster would be okay too but closer is better. Thanks in advance for any tips!

Offbeat things to do in Mexico City?

I'm going to Mexico City for a week mid-month, staying in a friend's apartment in Del Carmen. I'm trying to plan a loose itinerary of one thing per day, a mix of must-sees and more offbeat stuff. I'm looking for things to add to the latter category, either in the city or within day-trip distance--music, food, culture, etc. A lucha libre show is one possibility--what about some others? I speak Spanish and I'm comfortable poking around and using public transportation on my own.

How to be a kitchenless gourmond

When I stay in hotels I eat at restaurants almost every meal. How can I flip the script and pack food that I look forward to eating in my hotel room? I don't mind a little food prep but all the dishes would have to be washed in a bathroom sink, and the most cooking possible is boiling water in an electric kettle. I'm particularly interested in meals with lots of healthy meat and vegetables, if that were possible.
