Saturday Night in Millheim

After an afternoon spent exploring State College, no JoePa sightings, my lovely wife and I dropped by TCO to pick up the 2nd edition of Paul Weamer's "Flyfishing Guide to the Delaware River." Paul was working and was glad to autograph it. Now I have to pretend that I don't know about it Christmas morning.
After departing TCO we traveled toward Millheim on 45 to find a parking space near Elk Creek Cafe. We noticed an interesting looking gallery across the street from the previously mentioned brewpub.
The gallery had a plethora of fly fishing related art. Multiple artists were displaying oil, acrylic and water colors as well as sculpture. Stew mentioned yesterday that there is also a nice selection of fly fishing art displayed at the Old Forge Brewery in Danville.
We were also interested in the craft brews and blue grass music to be found at Elk Creek. We sampled the Copper Ale, Hairy John IPA and Double Rainbow IPA.
As usual the copper ale was very tasty. The double rainbow was quite good as well. Dinner was delicious and incredibly filling. We decided that waiting 2 hours for Cabinet, the blue grass band, to start was excessive, so we departed for home. On the way back to Lightstreet we stopped off at the Turkey Hill Brewery to pick up some tickets for their New Year's Eve celebration. Todd Cummings from the former Pete & Todd Band, popular locally, will be the musical entertainment for the evening. We picked up 4 tickets as the manager explained that this was the only way they could guarantee seating of a group together. First Minions to respond can purchase the extra 2 tickets.
