More holiday strolls scheduled this weekend

You might have thought we were finished with Victorian strolls -- see Troy, see Saratoga Springs -- but that doesn't mean we're ready to stay indoors.

For example, if you're visiting the village of Athens, Greene County, this coming Saturday and see a horse-drawn trolley and people in rather old-fashioned clothing, you're in the right place.

It's the annual Holiday Victorian Stroll, and will run from 1 to 4 p.m.  Children's activities, traditional music, house tours, a photo booth with historic costumes and more will be available. Food- and drink-related events include:
• A chocolate station at the Rivertown Senior Center, 39 2nd Street. 
• Cameo's Restaurant, 7 2nd Street, will hold a tasting of Brookview Station Winery's wine, along with cider and donuts. 
• Tours will be offered at the Crossroads Brewery, 21 2nd Street.
You can get a full schedule of all event-related activities online.

But that's not the only such event. The 5th annual Lake Placid Holiday Village Stroll will be held this Friday through Sunday (December 7-9).

Local businesses wil be offering dining specials, entertainment options, shopping bargains and special hotel accommodation packages.

Among the food-related attractions are:
• Saturday cheese fondue tasting,  fondue pot promotion, Temptations, 2509 Main Street, 2-5 p.m. 
• A 10% discount on wine and spirits purchases at The Smoking Cork, 2527 Main Street, all three days. 
• Live music 9-11 p.m. Saturday, late night happy hour specials ($3 drafts from eight choices; $4 pints of Cuervo Maragritas, Cottage Cafe, 77 Mirror Lake Drive. 
• Half-price draft beers and house favorite pot roast dinner for $19, Taste Bistro & Bar at the Mirror Lake Inn, 5 to 9:30 p.m. Friday.
You can get full details on all Lake Placid event-related offerings and activities as well as photos online. If you want just the schedule, you can find it here.
