You're in the thick of summer here in Beacon! Just because we are already getting pitched for fall-ish events (a Corn Bread Contest may be coming...) doesn't mean that this sunny weather is even close to being over. Enjoy the pools, enjoy the hiking, enjoy the shopping, enjoy the eating.

The Bird and Bottle Inn
1123 Old Albany Post Road (Route 9)
Garrison, NY (in the woods)
Recognize this path? It's the revived side-yard of the Bird and Bottle Inn just off of Route 9 in a quaint and quiet little spot. They have recently re-opened under new management, and are open Wednesday to Sunday. It's a serious meat-and-potatoes kind of place - with steak, burgers, and gnocchi - and Adirondack chairs positioned near a rock landscaped fountain.
