July D&D – “Must See Attractions” in the Catskills

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 22nd, as Andy Dorman & Amanda Brinke have planned a great route for our upcoming July drive.  You’re invited to relive a 1950’s road trip, complete with roadside attractions!  We will meet at the Price Chopper parking lot in Slingerlands at the intersection Route 85 and New Scotland Avenue at 8:30 am on Saturday, July 22nd.  After leaving there at 9 am, we’ll proceed south on a leisurely ride through the rolling countryside of Albany and Greene counties and then into the historic Catskill Mountains.  After climbing up and over several scenic mountain passes, the first stop will be the Empire State Railroad Museum (http://www.esrm.com/).  From here we will head to lunch — keeping with the theme of the day — at the Phoenicia Diner (http://www.phoeniciadiner.com).  Following lunch, and assuming all the kids eat their coleslaw, we’ll head down the road and see the world’s Largest Kaleidoscope (http://emersonresort.com/worlds-largest-kaleidoscope).  Although this particular roadside treat is a product of the 60’s it seems perfect for a 50’s must-stop attraction.  For more information, or to RSVP, you can shoot Andy an email:  andrewgdorman@gmail.com.
