At the WREN Local Works store in downtown Bethlehem, the Red Chair lent its support to shopping locally — the store is brimming over with handcrafted items made by local artisans — and admired artist Michele Johnsen’s paintings in the gallery.
More art was hanging on the walls next door at the Cold Mountain Café, where artist Kristine Lingle’s paintings were a vibrant counterpoint to the yummy salad awaiting the Red Chair.
The Red Chair received top billing across the street at The Colonial Theatre, one of the oldest continuously operated movie theatres in the country.
After a busy morning of sightseeing, freshly brewed coffee and hot out-of-the-oven chocolate chip walnut cookies provided a quick pick-me-up for the Red Chair at Maia Papaya, the cozy breakfast, brunch and sandwich shop next to the Bethlehem Post Office.
After a relaxing few days with the hospitable folks at Adair, the Red Chair donned its traveling clothes once again and headed off to the Inn at the Round Barn Farm in Vermont.
