What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: wake up calls, supermarket annoyances, a $5 bottle of wine, brunch and recycled toilet paper.


One more reason why we're glad Rob is fighting fires and not us. (The others: training, competency, high probability of badassness.)

People at Kristi's blog shared their supermarket pet peeves.

A shop owner pointed Celina in the direction of a good $5 bottle of wine.

Dish and Dirt says the brunch at Tosca in Troy "gives you tons of excellent food at a reasonable price."

People at Table Hopping talked about their favorite region-specific food items from around New York.

What's this? An only mildly-positive post about CCK from a local food blogger?

Naomi finally broke down and just threw a bunch of stuff out.

And from Leigh's Mori(Bus) Philosophorum: the Urban Adventurer and, um, recycled toilet paper.

Tweets of the week

From @Mrs_Misanthrope: "Husband recovering from heart surgery says he's in no shape to shovel the driveway. Ya know, I'm really getting sick of these lame excuses."

From @Siobhank524: "Am eating plate of tortilla straws, bacon bits and ranch dressing. God love the 'salad' bar."

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
