Are you looking for a way to be a little bit naughty but still stay on the nice list? Check out the 2017 Adirondack Ice Bowl on 4th Lake in Inlet!
January 27th and 28th, The Woods Inn will play host to the 2017 Tournament. Games kick off at 8 am Friday the 27th. 4 rinks will each hold constant 4-on-4 games, lasting 30 minutes each with a two-minute break in the middle. The games happen all day until 7:45 pm!
If you stick around Saturday night you can watch the championship games under the lights. (And you definitely will not want to miss the Bubble Ball Extreme game at 11 am on Friday!)
Drinks All Day
And by all day, I mean ALL DAY! The Saranac Ice Bar (which is right out on the lake!) opens for beverages at 8:30 in the morning, just 30 minutes after the first puck drops. And don't forget the Saranac tasting at 1:30 inside the Woods Inn Dining Room on Friday. And if you start to get a little hungry, don't worry. You have plenty of options! There is an on-ice concession stand, the dining room inside the Woods Inn will be open for breakfast, lunch ,and dinner, or you can venture out into Inlet to check out one of the other great places to eat like the Screamen Eagle Pizza Shop!
Live Entertainment and Free Shuttle
Both Friday and Saturday night at The Woods Inn, you can partake in some live music in the Pavilion and enjoy a roaring campfire to warm up after a day out on the ice. The cocktails will keep pouring in The Woods Inn Tavern.
I'm sure you're probably wondering how this will keep you on the nice list, and there is one easy answer - DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE! One of the great perks at the Adirondack Ice Bowl is the courtesy shuttle available for players and spectators. It runs on a continuous loop from 8 pm to 2 am Friday, and 2 pm to 2 am on Saturday, going from Inlet, to Eagle Bay, and Old Forge. Just a few of the stops include Drakes Inn, the Fern Park and Arrowhead Park parking areas, The Woods Inn, Daikers, Waters Edge, and more!
With this service offered complimentary, there is no reason not to have fun and get to where you are going safely. Just remember, the last shuttle leaves The Woods Inn at 1:15 am!
The Adirondack Ice Bowl is always a fun time. Make sure to dress warm and wear layers! Stay at The Woods Inn or one of the other great lodging properties near by so you can enjoy both days of the Ice Bowl.
