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.
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!
