History on Tap in Lake Placid

A century before Keegan Konkoski began concocting cilantro daiquiris at Liquids & Solids, the restaurant/bar she co-owns with Tim Loomis on Lake Placid’s Sentinel Road was a general store and post office. Across the street, the popular Lisa G’s restaurant had incarnations as an opera house, an A&P store and a dancehall. The building that now houses Lake Placid Pub & Brewery was originally the parsonage for the Methodist Church and, later, a nurses’ home.

Who says history has to be dry? Certainly not the Lake Placid—North Elba Historical Society, which is conducting its first historic pub tour on September 12 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. In addition to the above, stops at Mirror Lake Inn and Northwoods Inn are on the itinerary. For a $25 donation, tour participants receive a commemorative glass, complimentary goodies and trolley transportation between locales—drinks are extra. During each 30-minute stop a knowledgeable presenter will explain the history of the building and answer questions.

Advance registration is required, and a maximum of 25 participants will be allowed. Contact Jenn Tufano at 518-523-1608 or thehistorymuseum@verizon.net for reservations and information.
