What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: goals, celebrities, birthdays, crushes, traps, hedgehogs, fizzy quotes, catfish, lunch trucks, coupons and cleavage.


Naomi has reached item #100 on her list of 100 things to give away. (And she managed to not start filling her house up again.)

Fun in Saratoga spotted a celebrity at the Track.

Albany Jane's birthday: a boot of beer, a gigantic oatmeal cookie and bread from the recently-opened Placid Baker.

Matt met his crush face-to-face.

Leah planted a trap in her garden.

Hedgehogs!

Steve witnesses an epic act of check splitting.

DSB had some fun at the Wine Bar in Saratoga while her kids were out of state.

A fizzy quote in the window of Capital Wine and Liquor made Kim smile.

Another vote for the catfish sandwich at Justin's, this time from Robert.

Bob has some recommendations for the lunch trucks in Capitol Park.

And here's how to get Kristi's heart racing: coupons.


Tweets of the week

From @brianzimmel: "The bathroom air freshener always spritzes when I walk in - I hope it has a motion detector and not an odor sensor"

From @KristiGustafson: "each day i look at my new followers and think 'i'm not showing nearly enough cleavage to be on twitter.'"

From @robmadeo: "Three qualifications for NY State Senate: a. Pulse. b. Anger management issues c. Financial backing"

From @Mrs_Misanthrope: "Look, all I know is that the NY senate is filled with morons who beat each other daily with animal bones & would probably be amazed at fire."

From @robstak: "Friendly reminder: july = new interns, new fellows, and new attendings = don't get sick! ;)"
