Tubing in Phoenicia!

Who's up for a beautiful drive upstate, to do some whitewater tubing and eat awesome pancakes?

We'll gather in Mt. Vernon and car pool (easily Metro-North accessable via the Harlem Line), so just post in comments if you need a ride.

From there we'll take a scenic drive up to the Catskills, have brunch at local Phoenicia legend Sweet Sue's, and go tubing down the Esopus river.  Tubing will cost between $20-50, depending on what you rent in addition to your tube, and which of two local places can accommodate us.  Please bring a swimsuit and shoes that strap to your feet, if you are wearing regular flip-flops they will make you rent protective foot cover.  Teva-type sandals or old cloth sneakers are probably best bets.

Sweet Sue's runs about $10 per entree, and the pancakes they're famous for are HUGE!  They charged for syrup last time I was there, though, so I'm going to bring some with me.

For those interested in seeing the sites in town, there is a little downtown strip which hosts antique shops, a farmer's market, and other such things.  The Empire State Railway Museum is also in town.

      I hope that everyone will be able to meet in Mt. Vernon so that no one has to drive up alone and we can minimize the number of cars. But if anyone wants to just meet in Phoenicia that's cool, just let me know so we can arrange to meet up once we arrive.

    Has the date changed? In the original email it said July 26. Is it now August 2nd?

    • Diana

      Yes, it's changed due to many of the people who have RSVP'd having a conflict
