You know the old saying, “If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” The Bedford Village Inn's executive chef Benjamin Knack (formerly of Beacon Hill Bistro and a finalist on “Hell's Kitchen”) is doing just that for the evenings of Jan. 24-28, as he runs the “Chillin' and Grillin'” area on the inn's patio, just a few feet from what promises to be the world's largest ice bar. The festivities are part of New Hampshire Wine Week.

Last year the inn set up an ice bar that weighed in at 10,000 pounds. This year the Stoli Ice Bar will pump up the volume to 50,000 pounds. In fact, the inn's courtyard will be filled with three ice bars, a martini luge, free-standing ice carvings, and lights and music.

Guest DJs provide tunes on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and the Josh Logan Band plays live Thursday through Saturday nights. Festivities at the inn, just off Route 101 outside Manchester, are scheduled for 5:30-10 each night. Part of the $3 admission will benefit local charities.

For more information, see the inn's web site at www.bedfordvillageinn.com.
