PATE at POLIDOR
You’ve got to love a restaurant with a wry sense of humor.  On entry, a large sign up above, in the center of the place for all to see, reads:  “Le Polidor n’accepte pas les cartes crédit depuis 1845.”  (There is also an English translation for the healthy international share of the clientele.)  While it has not accepted credit cards in over a century and a half – or ever – all told, Polidor has been serving diners ever since in a cozy interior full of mirrors and period details.  We’ve been living within a stone’s throw of this historical place for over a year but did not know about its existence until we came across it in a pre-movie advertisement.  The ad was a convincing piece with a smattering of words heralding the food (typiquement françaiseauthentique) along with a long list of clienteles (écrivainsartistesintellectuels).  We decided that if it was good enough for those great men and women, we just had to check it out ourselves (if it wasn’t too expensive).

La PALETTE
Rue de SEINE
Saint Germain
PARIS
 
La Palette is more than just a typical Saint Germain bar: it’s a magical place combining a hundred years of history with the typical artistic ambiance of the neighborhood. A block away from the busy Rue de Buci, La Palette is a great place to have a meal at lunchtime or a drink on the cozy terrace. Enjoy! Parisianist.
 
La Palette was created in 1913, at the corner of Rue de Seine and what was once a covered passageway. Following a trend that had started with Queen Margot (1552-1615), artists and writers would come live in the area and spend time at the local bars and restaurants. 
The covered passageway may not have survived, but La Palette sure did and still offers today the same friendly welcome to locals and visitors whether they are artists or not! In 1984, La Palette was listed as a Historical Monument by the city of Paris, and recent owner David makes sure that the magic of this iconic bar will live on.

Although La Palette does serve classic French dishes in the afternoon, it’s mostly a bar, perfect for a drink while visiting Saint Germain neighborhood or a pre or post dinner cocktail. 
There is a wide range of French wines, which is the main drink served at La Palette, but you can also get soft drinks, coffee or cocktails (20 classic cocktails on the menu). At night, if you have not eaten but enjoy the bar’s terrace, you can always get a platter of dried meat or cheeses that will perfectly match your wine.
 
The terrace is probably the main attraction, but when it comes to décor, everything’s happening inside (I prefer eating inside myself). Since 1960, La Palette has started to collect painter’s palettes that have been offered by local artists. 
The walls behind the counter are covered with painter’s palettes, some of them being very original. The ceramics and mirrors date back from the 1920’s and give that extra coziness and warmth to the bar.

The BARMAN Pours an ABSINTHE
A typical bar with such great history obviously attracts a lot of people. Although traditionally, the clientele was almost exclusively local regular customers, things have changed, as many visitors now stop at La Palette to quench their thirst and enjoy the magic of the bar. 
Many French and International stars have enjoyed time in La Palette, such as Charlton Heston, James Coburn, Sophie Marceau and more recently Francis Ford Coppola. 
But regular customers are still there, and usually have their preferred seat. Don’t take it the wrong way: if you see an empty seat, but waiters tell you there is no space, you now know why. The regular customer is king!

Lake George Family Vacations

GREETINGS From LAKE GEORGE
This was my families main vacation spot for years. My brother Jimmy and his wife still go there every year for their vacation. 
It was to LAKE GEORGE that my father David Zwicke brought me and my little brother Jimmy to, in I think it was 1965 … I forget the name of the hotel we stayed at, but it was just a mile or two outside of Lake gGorge Village. I remember that we went to Gaslight Village and Fort William Henry for sure on that vacation as well as going to the Penny Arcade and Minature Gold at the Penny Arcade. We had MIKE’S SUBS right over there as well, along with NEBA ROAST BEEF SANDWICHES which my father loved.
We went on The MOHIGAN on that first trip to LAKE GEORGE
Sailing from the most southern tip of the Lake, past the SAGAMORE and all the way up to PARADISE BAY where we turned around and headed back to the foot of Lake George.
