In the mid-18th century, distillers at Albany's first distillery, the Quackenbush Still House, crafted rum from Caribbean molasses, Hudson River water, and wild yeast. Instead of Quackenbush's large wooden fermenting vessels, The Albany Distilling Company's distilling duo, Matt Jager and John Curtin, rely on sleek, modern equipment to create their Quackenbush Still House rum. Updated gear, yeast, and water aside, Matt and John stick to Quackenbush's original recipe to yield the rum's smooth, butterscotch-flavored finish.

Their other small-batch spirits likewise pay homage to recipes of old, from the slowly processed Coal Yard New Make whiskey to Ironweed, a Prohibition-style whiskey aged in oak. Available throughout New York state, The Albany Distilling Company's libations are also served twice weekly at the distillery's very own tasting room.

Combine Yellowstone, Glacier, and Yosemite National Parks, and you still come short of Adirondack Park's six million acres. The protected terrain is home to mountains peaking at more than 4,000 feet, nearly 3,000 lakes, and rivers and streams flowing for thousands of miles. Since 1970, Adirondack Life magazine has covered the region's people, places, history, and issues in pieces by acclaimed writers such as Bill McKibben, Andrea Barrett, and Russell Banks.

Along with its bimonthly issues, Adirondack Life publishes two special issues each year. As spring turns into summer, the Annual Guide to the Great Outdoors exclusively focuses on outdoor recreation such as hiking, canoeing, and befriending bears with backrubs. In autumn, the At Home in the Adirondacks issue turns reader attention to topics such as architecture, gardening, and interior design.

With more than 3,300 square feet of eclectic gifts and home wares, The Cross Eyed Owl Gift Shop can seem a bit daunting to first-time visitors. The store’s quirky charm and welcoming staff quickly dissipates that initial sense of trepidation, however, and one is left to fall in love with unique gifts and home accessories from brand names such as The Naked Bee, Robert Rothschild Farms, and Beanpod Candles. The wide variety of products—including stuffed animals, home décor, and gourmet foods—means that you can select a gift to convey any message, from "happy birthday" to "sorry I shrunk your Lego set." Every aisle throughout the store nearly overflows with comfy pajamas, baby outfits, wedding gifts, and wall art.:m]]

The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001.

Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.
