To attest to Platty's old school bonafides, even a few skiers still rock long straight skis. A few of them with $3.99 stickers on ‘em too, and people ski in Carharrts. Now on Saturday, the fine folk from NYC’s largest borough are hitting the hill on Saturday with a road trip planned by the Diamond bar. Yes, the name should give it away. They’re skiers. And, they’re promising an after-party at the bar with a mac-n-cheese competition and après of all sorts.
The forecast promises snow, not to mention a balmy high of 20 degrees, which beats the -5 I skied on Wednesday.
