My original plans were to check out the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT with my friend Mindy. But somehow or another we missed the exit, and ended up taking a 200 mile road trip through New York and the Litchfield County instead. It was a fun, relaxing, destination-less drive. We passed a few abandoned insane asylums, discussed the feasibility of the vegetarian lifestyle, blasted a few Beatles albums, and passed a few apple-eating deer.
As we were heading back we stopped for a quick bite to eat at the Yankee Pedlar Inn in downtown Torrington. It’s worth a visit if you’ve never been to a 19th century style tavern, but I’d recommend checking it out on a Friday or a Saturday night when there might be more people around. While we both enjoyed the food, the lack of other patrons and the dead silence that resulted made it feel a bit creepy.
