Best Caffeine Fix
Sometimes you just need an iced latte. Or an iced Chai latte. Or a nonfat iced Chai latte. Pick up any of these at Plain & Fancy (Stewart Ave., Roscoe, Sullivan Co.; 607/498-4149; iced latte $3.50), where you can also buy specialty foods for a picnic.

Before You Go
Dirty Dancing isn't the only film set in the Catskills. See the region through different eyes with these two films and a book:

A Walk on the Moon A Jewish housewife falls in love with a hippie in the summer of Woodstock.

You Can Count on Me The story of a small-town single mother and her wandering brother, filmed in Phoenicia.

Kaaterskill Falls by Allegra Goodman. A novel about an Orthodox Jewish family's summer in the bungalow communities of the 1970's.
