Lake Placid Day 2

Thursday June 30 was day two in Lake Placid. Thanks to Lisa, whom we'd met at Zig Zags the night before, we started with a wonderful lunch on Mirror Lake at The Cottage at Mirror Lake Inn. Despite being overcast, the view on the deck was lovely. Since proper nutrition is important and sets the tone for the rest of the day, we ordered Bloody Marys. Our busy agenda didn't allow us to linger long at the bar.

We ditched our husbands and went straight to the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery. General manager Steve graciously spent some time answering our questions, encouraged picture taking and even showed Kim the brewery. We decided to return later to PJ O'Neill's downstairs.

Next Stop: Northern Exposure and the Cabin at the Northwoods Inn. Both were pretty empty when we were there but definitely deserve another look.

We crossed Main Street and noticed the happy hour sign at Straight Shot Lounge at Generations Restaurant at the Golden Arrow Resort. The name conjured images of a dark hole-in-the-wall kind of place, which couldn't have been further from the truth. Very chic and contemporary and bartender JoAnne was a gem. And domestic bottled beers and well drinks were only $2. Also noteworthy was the martini menu.

Rose Nylund
We allowed Tony & Bob to tag along to PJ O'Neill's, back at the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, where voracious popcorn consumption encouraged us to head out to dinner at Lisa G's. Of course, we had dinner at the bar. Bartender Jecinda happily made drink suggestions and answered our questions. Pam tried a Rose Nylund, an unusual combination of Citron, cranberry juice, lemon and rosewater. We also shared a mango margarita.

Too full of good food and drinks, we decided to call it a night. We'll be individually reviewing each of the bars from this trip for the Adirondack Almanack. Can't wait to go back to Lake Placid!

Cheers & Bottoms Up!
Kim & Pam
