glacier 4 IT’S ALL FUN UNTIL IT’S DONE!! Then it’s January 1, 2016, we hang on the couch watching football, thinking how good it feels to STOP; nothing on the calendar and leftovers to eat.  But how long does this last??  I’m thinking two, maybe three weekends, after developing the momentum to undecorate, you find yourself in mid- January caught up, well rested and raring to go. glacier 2If you’ve learned from years past and anticipated this lull, you’ve already secured your package at the Sagamore Resort for the Glacier Ice Bar and Lounge….an outdoor adventure that is sure to thrill you.  For the last two weekends in January (22 and 29), this historic resort on Green Island in Bolton Landing transforms into a life size snow globe!  Master ice carver Tim Pierce works his magic on 18,000 pounds of crystal clear ice, creating a fully stocked ice bar surrounded by bar stools draped in faux polar bear skins.  Have your drink of choice served through the ice luge into a glass formed of ice, settle into a glistening conversation spot of frozen couches and tables with friends.  Be sure to snap a few selfies at the interactive ice sculptures like a VW bus or the picture frame above the mantel, ice fire included, to savor the memory.glacier 3 When it seems the patio heaters aren’t quite enough and the icy temperatures begin to penetrate the warm duds barrier, you can casually saunter inside the hotel to warm by the crackling fireplace in the lobby and enjoy the live entertainment in the Caldwell Lobby Bar Lounge.  La Bella Vita, right on property, is also available for a taste of authentic Italian specialties for dinner as you wind down your day’s exploits. Now it’s just occurred to me that some of you may still be searching for the perfect  gift for that special someone, or you are trying to find an exciting way to celebrate an amazing group of friends who would travel from different locations to spend a fun-filled weekend together.  This is my offering to you!  Contact the Sagamore Resort at (518)644-9400 or www.thesagamore.com , gather what information you need, secure your reservation and spend the next month savoring the ANTICIPATION!]]>
