There’s Good Eats This Marathon Weekend in Schroon


Just because the summer is over -- doesn’t mean the good eats in and around Schroon are gone -- not be a long shot. But many restaurants have new hours to accommodate the decrease in crowds since the summer folks have largely packed up and retreated south.

Mr. P’s Mountain Smokehouse, has new fall hours, kicking off today. The new hours are 11:30 am to 8 pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And to celebrate the Fall, there’s a new, featured sandwich (pictured above), “The Cubano”. It’s a pressed sandwich of smoked pulled pork, ham, dill pickles, Swiss cheese and a touch of spicy mustard. And that, dear readers, has my name written all over it.

At Witherbee’s Carriage House – one of the official sponsors of the marathon – they will be carbo loading their guests all weekend with their special pasta station. Their regular menu is also available.

And Friday night, the rocking Willie Playmore Band – will indeed by playing more, rocking out in the loft.
