The Noonmark is a mandatory breakfast stop before a day of ice climbing. It's about damn time someone started charging you friggin addicts for every cup of coffee you drink. I get charged for every cup of OJ and hot chocolate, why should you get away scott free with bottomless cups of coffee. NON COFFE DRINKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, there is a bar is Placid....can't remember the name...I think it has the name Joe's in it. back behind a large park off of the main street. Downstairs has a good bar with darts and pol, upstairs has another bar with tables and dinner. I seem to remember having a damn good steak there, although after a day of sub zero temps climbing grade 4 ice, I'll bet any steak would taste yummy.
