Lured by Basil & Wick's Facebook promotion of their Friday Holiday Happy Hour, we felt it was a perfect venue for our first annual office party. A staff of two, with countless temps and volunteers, we still deserve some time to socialize with our coworkers away from the office. An added bonus - it's always a pleasure to see Jane and Jeannie. Jeannie whipped up a pina colada martini for Pam and Kim indulged in a Sam Adams Winter Lager. We missed the complimentary appetizers, but had plans anyway.
We tried to stay away from "shop talk" but what could we do? We were in a bar after all. Discussion soon turned to the year's annual report, projections for 2012, stock prices and future business trips.
One of our fave five, we were happy to find Basil & Wick's busy in anticipation of ski season. Friday Holiday Happy Hour will continue every Friday for the month of December. Happy Hour is from 3:30 to 7 p.m. with complimentary finger foods from 5 to 6 p.m.
We couldn't stay long. Workoholics that we are, we were scheduled to visit the Black Mountain Inn in North Creek. You'll have to wait for our review of the Black Mountain Inn, which will appear on the Adirondack Almanack next Wednesday.
OUR MISSION - WE'RE PUBLISHED! Wednesday, June 26th, 2013 marked the Premier of our new book, Happy Hour in the High Peaks: An Adirondack Bar Guide.
