Beaver Brook Outfitters opens the window to the great outdoors by leading expeditions and adventures in the heart of the beautiful Adirondacks. Explore the scenic Upper Hudson River with a single kayak rental, which plants paddlers on a private launching point before they float from Thurman Station to 1000 Acres Ranch on a five-mile trip. Take in the views of surrounding flora and fauna before a complimentary shuttle whisks you back to civilization. The tubing trip allows two people to relax in harmony during a leisurely 2.5 mile float down the Hudson. Lasting approximately two hours, or the time the average American spends watching cat videos per week, this tranquil trip provides serene surroundings and calming conditions for bonding or splash fights.
When Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey's BBQ in Dallas in 1941, he kept his menu small and simple, only cooking up beef brisket, pit hams, and barbecue beans, which he sold alongside potato chips, beer, bottled milk, and sodas. Dickey smoked all of his meat in-house, a practice that put his eatery on the map and one that his sons, Roland and T.D., still rely on today.
The menu has expanded since Travis’s time behind the grill, offering plates and sandwiches that brim with nine kinds of barbecued meats, including spicy cheddar sausages, pork ribs, polish sausage, and Texas-style beef brisket that’s chopped to order. Several types of baked potatoes are piled high with meats and cheeses, which diners can wash down with a gallon of tea or Dickey's signature 32-ounce Big Yellow Cup of soda. Staying true to the same spirit of hospitality, cooks always include a buttery roll, a homestyle side such as jalapeño beans, fried okra, and dill pickles, and free ice cream with every meat plate.
