We drove through Hyde Park and stopped at the CIA campus to grab lunch at one of its five restaurants. No luck! All five were booked solid. By the time we reached Rhinebeck I was starving, and we were lucky to sneak a table at Aroi Thai before they closed to prep for dinner service. I fulfilled my craving for Pad Kee Mao. Then I bought two Turkish head wraps in a little hippie shop and a bottle of Prosecco for the hotel room, so it was a fruitful stop.
We did some more scenic riding along the Hudson and later checked into a hotel in Great Barrington, MA. The quintessentially "New England" inns were all full due to it being Columbus Day Weekend and peak foliage time. Plus, they all require a two-night minimum stay. Our hotel was more than clean and comfy though. We even took advantage of the hot tub and air hockey table before we left for our 9pm dinner at The Red Lion Inn in Stockton. Let me tell you... it was soooooo delicious.
The next morning we walked around Great Barrington a bit. My Sweets fell in love with a too-pricey pair of beaten up cowboy boots. I snuck into a local chocolate boutique for my English toffee crunch fix. Then we headed toward The Eggs Nest in High Falls for lunch before returning home to the kiddos. A perfect date night, if I do say so myself! Thanks to Grandma DJ for holding down the fort.
