Lippy Posted August 20, 2007 Author Share Posted August 20, 2007 What I did on my summer vacation: Stayed at Cobble View Inn, Tyringham August 12 - 16 Sunday: concert at Music Mountain antiquing in Sheffield dinner at Route 7 Grill, Great Barrington Monday: Walked a bit of the Appalachian Trail in Tyringham, but turned back early after being warned by a through-hiker of an active hornet's nest a few hundred feet ahead. lunch - Joe's diner, Lee, for local color matinee of Devil's Advocate, at Shakespeare & Compnay, a two-man play about Gen'l. Noriega and the Archbishop with whom he sought asylum. dinner at Chez Nous, in Lee, a new, and not bad bistro in the 1840s house that used to be the oddly named restaurant, From Ketchup to Caviar. Brass quintet concert at 7 Hill Inn, Lenox. Lots of fun with amusing and talkative musicians Tuesday: Hiked Tyringham Cobble, shopped in Great Barrington, had sushi lunch at Bizen. Imaginatively conceived and executed fully-staged production of Cosi Fan Tutte at Tanglewood, the the theatre. No dinner, because the opera didn't end until well after the restaurants closed. Someone should cooridnate better. Wednesday A full museum day, beginning with a Monet drawings exhibit at the Clark, then on to the piece de resistance, the Gerald and Sara Murphy exhibit at the Willliams College Museum of Art, and ending at Mass MoCA, where we met Omni (who was supposed to have met us several hours earlier but was delayed by work at the country house.) Lunch with Omni in the snack bar where I had a surprisingly good turkey sandwich. Dinner was at the steak house, Pearl's, in Great Barrington, very pleasant and comfortable, with nearly professional service. Thursday Birded and walked in Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary Early dinner at the Pillow Cafe (don't ask, don't go) at Jacob's Pillow, so we could see the free Inside/Out performance at 6:30. Saw Bridgeman/Packer in the Studio Theatre and enjoyed their very imaginative use of video. Friday Lunch at the Church Street Cafe in Lenox before a matinee at Shakespeare and Company of Tom Stoppard's Rough Crossing before heading to Columbia County to spend the weekend with friends who live there.
