And the Foie suggestions??
Living where you do, I think there's a store called Dartaniagn's or something similar. I'd look for Hudson Valley. If you're going pate and not whole lobe, look for something from the Three Little Pigs.
Even in fall and spring, depending where you're headed, you might get temp extremes. Right now looks acceptable, but I can't think how many times it's either too cold on the NY end, or too hot somewhere between NY and me. I mean, you got sunny and 75 and temps inside your car goes up to the 90s.
