The Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department is launching a series of dining events to encourage local residents and visitors to come together and support the local economy during the winter months which are so reliant upon Mother Nature cooperating and delivering us snow-pack. In 2023 she’s been a bit slow to rev up her snow making machine. She did come through in mid-January to sprinkle some snow on Mt. Sabattis for Winter Carnival, but the scant snow has proven to be a challenge. Now the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department has decided to tackle this challenge head on and create some events that will support the winter economy and also encourage people to get out of their houses and have some fun. Attending these town events also counts as an activity to cross off  for the Long Lake Winter Wonderland Bingo Challenge.

Dinner and a Movie launches Friday, January 20th at the Long View Lodge, 681 Deerland Road, Long Lake, NY  with Ski Patrol. The 1990 comedy “Ski Patrol” is from the producers of Police Academy and will start at 6:30pm featuring action, comedy, skiing and laughs. Enjoy a nice meal out with family and friends in Long Lake. The story follows a crew of ski patrolers as they have fun, keep the mountain safe, and try to save the lodge from greedy land developer.

On Friday, February 20th, at 6:30pm Dinner and a Movie arrives at the Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub, 1161 Main Street Long Lake. “Maverick, Top Gun 2” features Tom Cruise as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell  who returns after 30 years as one of the Navy’s top aviators. Maverick pushes the envelope as a courageous test pilot. Maverick is tasked to train a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it. Everyone is encouraged to come out early and enjoy a meal while enjoying this fast-paced reboot of Top Gun.

On Friday, March 24th, Dinner and a Movie will be at the Adirondack Hotel, 1245 Main Street, Long Lake, NY at 6:30pm and featuring Ticket to Paradise. Ticket to Paradise is a 2022 romantic comedy film starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts as a divorced couple who team up to sabotage the impending wedding of their daughter in Bali.

Long Lake Parks and Recreation leads these three Dinner and a Movie events by providing the projection, and media as well as the licensing rights to bring these movies out to our area restaurants.

Long Lake will also be hosting a winter Restaurant Week, from Feburary 17th – February 26th.  Participating businesses include: The ADK Trading Post, Adirondack Hotel, Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub, Long View Lodge and the Raquette Lake Tap Room. Participants can pick up their dining card at area restaurants or the Long Lake Town Offices at 1130
