Grand Opening of our Pub

Grand Opening of our new Pub and our new Wellness Center on December 4th! We are having a Rename The Bridges Cafe contest through November 20th. The new name AND the winner will be announced at our Grand Opening celebration on December 4th. The winner will receive dinner and drinks for two. Send your name ideas via email or Facebook, or just drop by!

The party will begin at 6:30 pm. We will have live music, pub fare, and a great selection of beer, wine and liquor. In addition, if you have little ones who need a babysitter, or just a fun night out, we are having Kid’s Night Out that evening as well — from 6:30 to 9:30. Drop your youngsters off ($8 for members, $12 for non-members) and relax in our pub while they have a blast, eating popcorn and pizza, and staying safe. There is limited availability for Kid’s Night Out, so reserve your spot now.

You can also check out our new Wellness Center while you’re here. The Bridges will be offering Acupuncture and Massage for guests and locals alike.


Let it Snow!

Winter in the Mad River Valley. Nothing exemplifies this area better. And winter up here isn’t as patient as in other parts of the country. By late October, white mountain peaks create a dramatic backdrop to a landscape still peppered with shades of red and gold. The snow capped mountains make us anxious to hear the mechanical hum of ski lifts, and feel the crisp, cold air on our cheeks as our bodies are kept warm in layers of knit socks, long underwear and thick, down coats. Eventually we’ll retire to a cozy spot in front of a blazing fire, with our hands soothed by the warmth of a mug of a hot chocolate or our favorite drink. The early snows cannot keep these thoughts from entering our minds, but no need to worry. With the slopes in Vermont opening soon (some as early as November 3rd) this winter wonderland is only days away.
