Somehow the image of a "pig roast" doesn't quite mesh with my recollection of the elegant Emerson Resort but that's exactly what is going on there Friday evening, in its Catamount banquet center.
I guess they know what works. If any place could make a pig roast upscale, they can. As their Web site says, the Catamount has "sweeping mountain views and exceptional dining. Set along the famed Esopus Creek that runs throughout the Hudson Valley, the Catamount features an open, airy dining space with a panoramic deck and spectacular white-tented pavilion."
The fun starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 9 p.m., with $25 admission for adults and $12.50 for children under age 12. (Children under 5 eat for free.) The event also includes "hamburgers, hot dogs and all the fixin's!" and a cash bar.
The Emerson is located at 5368 Route 28 in Mount Tremper, west of Woodstock. Call 845-688-2828 for reservations.
