Neil Genzlinger, New York Times critic, is excited to be a part of this legendary event and just hopes that the storytelling portion of the evening will be the equal of his brother Grant’s fabulous pumpkins. He will be telling the favorite of all of his stories, “The Deerslayer,” which involves a minivan and — appropriately for the season — vampires. He also intends to solve an almost 60-year-old Lake Wallenpaupack mystery, the Mystery of the Vanishing Row Boat, in which a homemade boat lovingly built by his older brothers disappeared after its maiden voyage on the lake in 1955. And then he’ll turn the evening over to nationally known monologist James Braly, who promises a condensed version of the new one-man show he is preparing, “The Monthly Nut,” a true story about losing one’s way and finding it again that includes kidnapping, Seinfeld, suicide, a stand-up comedy class, even a ghost. And Neil and James will wrap things up with some audience participation in which they’ll give away valuable items from Neil’s collection of TV swag.
The feast begins with butternut squash soup with walnut tuile, greens salad with fresh figs and maple horseradish dressing, and warm goat cheese on greens with apple pepper jam, local apples. Entrées include chicken breast stuffed with smoked gouda and pepper with roasted sweet potatoes, scallion tomato compote and vegetable medley; marinated flank steak, sauteed mushrooms and onions, whipped potatoes and vegetable medley; hand cut fresh fettuccini tossed in parmesan asiago cream with grilled autumn vegetables. Featured desserts are pumpkin creme brulee, Settlers Inn english toffee pudding and double chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.
