We needed to get my husband Steven a ticket for the Great American Irish Festival in Frankfort, so we headed to the Price Chopper in Little Falls. Of course I cannot go to Little Falls for just one thing, so we also got a mid afternoon snack at Ruggiero’s Trattorio.
We have eaten there before. Our favorite place to sit is the bar, which is where we sat today. We had some Chardonnay. I got a bowl of French Onion Soup while Steven had a slice of pizza. I had a bite or two of his pizza. It had sausage, peppers and mushrooms. Yum! I adored my soup. It felt so good on my stomach!
A fellow sat two seats down from us at the bar and gave the bartender a bottle of blueberry beer.
“I have to love a guy who pulls a bottle of beer out of his pocket.” I told him.
He told us how he likes to try different kinds of beer, but you often have to purchase a six- or twelve-pack at a time, so he sometimes gives some away to people he thinks will like them. I referred him to Beer Belly Bob’s in Ilion, because he has a rack where you can mix and match a six-pack of craft beers.
We had a fun time there. I also got a picture of our bartender Carly.
