What's hot in The Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: tasteless diners, license plates, food finds in Troy, big-shotting, and giant cows.

His Crankiness at i-Saratoga has identifed something more tasteless "than Andrew Dice Clay judging a female mud wrestling contest at a fundraiser for the National Organization for Women": the taste buds of Capital Region diners.

And, yet, there is good stuff out there to eat. The Nosher at Dish and Dirt identifies three of them in Troy.

If you were hoping to score an "ALBANY" license plate, you're too late. Laurie and Kelly have proof.

Steve Barnes was an eye witness to an act of attempted big-shotting.

It always a good idea to check your blindspot when driving. As Kristi G recently found out, you never know when a giant fiberglass cow will be in the next lane over.


There's a lot more going on around the Neighborhood, check it out. If you know of a great blog or site we should include, post a comment or send us an email: editors |at| alloveralbany |dot| com.
