I was actually warned by the people who worked in the farmhouse NOT to go to Joe Green?s for the evening. They said that a bad crowd hung out there and that it was kind of scary. Once I met the Polish girls, however, they were very familiar with the place and wanted to take me. Since I hadn?t been and therefore hadn?t formed an opinion about it I went. And I had a great time. It wasn?t as crowded as some of the other pubs and bars in town and I loved sitting out on the back deck overlooking the lake. Drinks were reasonably priced and overall I thought it had a good vibe to it. We went back a couple of times and I had fun each time I went. After one visit everyone knew us.
Brief story about my last visit?It was my last night in New Hampshire and the girls wanted me to try tequila. I had never done so. So, we went to Joe Green?s and had a couple of shots. Then we met some guys who kept buying us shots and in the end we wound up in the lake. No, we weren?t skinny dipping or going for a midnight swim-they tossed us in. It was a night I will never forget.
Dress Code: Extremely casual is the dress code. We were in jeans.

Address: 33 Dockside, Main Street
Here are some cool places:
1) Country Bookseller. This is a small, locally owned place. The people are well informed, and for a small shop, they are amazingly well stocked. They can also get things ordered, and they are sometimes there the next day.
2) Lee's Confectionary: they make their own candies and chocolates. REALLY GOOD!
3) Hampshire Pewter: They make their pewter in town. Beautiful things - everything from mugs to candlesticks, to christmas ornaments. They will engrave things.
4) The Pottery Place: They make their pottery in the store, and you can sometimes watch them making the products if you time it right. Amazing work!
5) Made On Earth: They sell clothes, accessories, books and music, candles, incenses, etc.

A "tradition" in Wolfeboro is for people to get ice cream from Bailey's Bubble and people-watch in town. Bailey's is a take-away place right in the center of town. There are a few tables on the sidewalk and a few benches on Main Street, but most people will go to the docks by Back Bay or go across the street to the Town Park to eat next to the water.
Bailey's has recently expanded from just soft ice cream to include about 20 flavors of hard ice cream, different sundaes, different types of drinks (shakes, malts, brown cows). Try the chocolate ice cream with peanut butter sauce - it's like a cold peanut butter cup!

Just because it's a little cooler here than at most water-spots doesn't mean you shouldn't lather on the sun screen. I got sun poisioning on my leg and it swelled up twice its normal size in an hour. Be warned and be cautious!
