Lake Placid Local

So as I’m sitting here blogging in Big Mountain Deli, a parade materializes to celebrate some of the local athletes that have taken home medals in Vancouver.  The olympic spirit here in this town is just amazing.  Local buisness owners’ kids are winning medals, my roommate gets to be the brakeman for bobsled pilots on occasion-I guess 17 local athletes are competing in the games this year!

Here’s some pics from the parade and a shot of the Big Mountain Deli’s menu.  My dear friend Liz first introduced us to Simply Gourmet–Big Mountain is their downtown location.  She raved about the sandwiches, and I thought she was just embellishing–well I must say she was right–this is probably the best spot for a sandwich in Placid.  Their 46 sandwiches are named after the peaks and are ranked in order of prominence.  Eat your way to the top!  I’ve already had some Basin, Saddleback, and Gothics!
