Trip Report Middlebury, Vermont

Jump to last reply

Here's another annoying real-time trip report wherein readers direct me to do stuff and I report back on if the stuff was fun or not. We are in Middlebury Vt to see DS#2 who is in a school play. As You Like It. Shakespeare had a rather strange way of talking. I know that because we saw the second half of the play last night. But more about that later.

We flew from DC to Burlington yesterday afternoon and drove to Middlebury (about 45 minutes), checked in to our B&B, which is very nice, and followed the innkeepers suggestion to have dinner at the Bobcat Cafe in Bristol, about a 20 minute drive. That was very nice too. I had venison chorizo meatloaf. Absolutely delicious. And a pretty place too. Filled with interesting people in flannel.

You're probably wondering how they get their venison. One pictures weekend deer hunters bringing their game to the restaurant but this isn't the way it works. There are deer farms. I don't know if they are free range deer farms. I would think so. But herding deer couldn't be easy. One pictures only with difficulty the possibility back in the day of huge deer drives from, say, Middlebury to Montreal, the constant danger of stampedes or Indian Attacks. Life in the old East. But I digress.

So we came in to the play right before intermission last night and DW explained DS was in the play so we got in for free. I don't think this would work on Broadway. We have tickets for the show tonight so it's not like we're total freeloaders. Partial freeloaders. Anyway, As You Like It is a little confusing but it ends happily.

This morning after DW wakes up we'll have breakfast and explore some. Last year at Parent's Weekend we went on the Robert Frost walk and saw a waterfall.

Please let me know if you have thoughts about stuff to do in Middlebury.

Here are links to the B&B and the Bobcat Cafe.
