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.

@robstak's info is right on! I have to keep in mind not to do anything stupid this month. I don't usually do my stupid things until December anyway. :)

The hedgehog show was definitely the best hedgehog-focused event I have ever attended.

ALWAYS ask if it's ok to approach a dog. There are kids in our neighborhood who walk right up to dogs they don't know without asking.
