Holiday Valley Resort wants you to buy their overpriced burgers and snacks at Seven Headwalls Café, but peek downstairs and you’ll see a hidden dining room with several dining tables and chairs and rows of electrical plug-ins where self-catered crock pot lunches simmer, carrying on a tradition that started here in the seventies. Buy a pound of chuck roast ($3.69/lb) at the sleek new Dom’s Butcher Block on Washington Street and a bottle of sweet concord red ($10.50) at the new Winery of Ellicottville, just down the street. Plug in your crock pot, hit the slopes, and return to your very own stew.
