Since 1966, there has been a Williams Trivia Contest held twice a year. These contests are epic in nature, though good-natured. Unbelievably (or maybe not, when it comes to trivia) there is an archive of all the questions asked at most every contest since its inception. And yes, of course, we're going to ask you pet-related questions we found in those archives. First, a dog-related one:
Question: Hopefully you know that Lassie was a cross-dresser, but at least she never wore a fake beard in any of her work. However, Rin Tin Tin did. Why?
Answer: He was disguised as a wolf [in Clash of the Wolves]
Williamstown is also named after Ephraim Williams and is located in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains, one of the prettiest regions in the Northeast. There is a lot of wonderful hiking to be done on any of the many pet-friendly trails that run through and around Williamstown. Just keep your pooch on a leash and be sure to pick up after him, even if you're out in the woods. For an easy walk, try the Berlin Road Trail; it follows a logging road up to the top of an old ski area-you can also take the Waterfall Trail spur off of it. Altogether it's about 1 1/2 miles and about an hour round trip.
And when you’re done hiking, get a bite to eat at one of Williamstown’s pet friendly restaurants. Top props go to the '6 House Pub, which has a gorgeous patio with umbrella tables, where you and your pup are welcome to peruse and partake of the menu. The best part is, your best buddy gets his own Bone Appetit Doggie Menu, with a choice of a Hot Diggity Dog, Bark Balls, Hound Dog Heaven (a beef burger), Chicken a la Hound, and Fit Fido (4 ounces of turkey for those watching their weight). We love the menu too, which has a tasty selection of burgers, salads, pastas, and much more.
Two other restaurants in town have pet friendly patios, both conveniently located on Spring Street: Pera Mediterranean Bistro, which specializes in kebabs, and the Purple Pub, a wonderful place to get a beer and one of their signature sandwiches, like the Lobster Club Wrap or Grilled Salmon BLT.
And if you’re looking for a dog friendly breakfast place, check out Renee’s Diner in nearby North Adams. They’ve got a very nice and spacious patio out front and are open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week.
