Escape the heat wave--Maple Sugaring plans

Seems a strange thing to ask for this time of year, but I'm looking for ideas of food to warm us up in New York state this coming winter.

We're planning a break from the city during our trip to New York early next March. From this website it looks as though there are numerous Maple Sugaring possibilities within 1.5 or 2 hours from NYC by public transit, and the dates in 2011 suggest that they may be going on while we're there in 2012.

I expect some of these are better than others, and would appreciate comments on the various options.

Additionally, we will need to eat a meal or two on our excursion. I'm thinking it will be cold and we'll want something to warm us up, but not so filling as to make the train ride a pain. Given the constraints of travel mode and time, I won't be too picky as to what type of food exactly, but would prefer a yummy local spot.

  1. I think you may be on the wrong board. There's nowhere in Northern New England (ME, NH, VT) that's within 2 hours of NYC, but if you try the Southern New England board you may get some recommendations for Connecticut and western Massachusetts. The maple sugaring season here is late March, but it may be earlier further south.
