A local Hudson Valley cafe known for its original vegan food and great space for local performers is now offering a free coffee or Latte to the person who successfully places the last piece in their community puzzle.

By now, you may have figured out that a Dissectologist is a person who enjoys doing crossword puzzles. According to puzzlehour.com, Jigsaw puzzles were once called dissected maps, also known as dissected puzzles. They were made from wood and were usually hand-cut.

So, the Rosendale Cafe at 434 Main Street in Rosendale has a community puzzle you can work on while you wait for your order. Or you could just stop in and place a few pieces too. Either way, the person that places the last piece will be receiving a free Coffee of Latte courtesy of the Cafe.

And I was wrong they have moved on to Crystals but at the rate they get these puzzles done they have time to put up one with a holiday theme or maybe even one that is just all snow.

The New Puzzle as of today (November 29th) at 3:40 PM
