Kim and Pam have created what I've always needed, a thorough guide to the best taverns in the Adirondack Park.
Happy Hour in the High Peaks has given away all our local secrets! I can't believe they wrote a guide to my favorite bars!
Kim and Pam Ladd's Happy Hour in the High Peaks is a great guide for finding the best cocktails, taverns, and good times in the Adirondacks. Handy maps are combined with lots of insider information about the region's classic establishments, some tips for enjoying them, and recipes for some of the best cocktails you'll ever taste.
Adirondack visitors and residents alike will find some great new hangouts. Kim and Pam have done the hard work. All we have to do is enjoy the results! --John Warren, Adirondack Almanack
Kim and Pam have put together a must-read guide that gives both locals and visitors a taste of the High Peaks -- literally. Their book captures the flavor of the Adirondacks and offers readers a look at some of the best bars in the area. Anyone who loves exploring local places, enjoys a good beer, glass of wine or cocktail or the Adirondacks will love this guide. --Michelle Maskaly, "The Adirondack Chick"
The Adirondacks have always inspired an insurmountable number of writers. I can personally attest to that. The region also inspires people in so many other ways. That is what brings them here. For each niche, however vast or narrow it may be, there is the need for more information about it and sooner or later someone comes along and satisfies that need in written form.
This is exactly what sisters Kim and Pam Ladd (we may or may not be related) have done with Happy Hour in the High Peaks. Socializing is a big part of human nature and gathering at a local "watering hole" like the appropriately themed 46 of them featured here is a time-honored tradition. Each is unique in its own way, lending itself to the character of their hometowns and the people who frequent them. That's what small town life is all about and there is no shortage of it here in the Adirondacks.
The authors understand all of this. They also understand that folks are drawn to the region for many purposes. It might be to hunt, fish, camp, hike, snowmobile, ski or just take a drive in the country. The Adirondack establishment itself, with its beer, wine, spirits and unique atmosphere may be the traveler's destination unto its own. After traveling the pages of this book many more of them likely will be.
Whether you are at the end of the trail or the middle of a vacation; whether it's a night on the town or a snack and brew while catching a ballgame; a cold drink on a hot day or some hot wings on your way home; pull up a rustic barstool and join the crowd. Happy Hour in the High Peaks will make you feel like you've been there already, but I
sure hope you'll drop in just the same. --Dan Ladd, The Chronicle
