What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: clouds, bonding, asking for money, mongrel sandwiches, Uncommon Grounds, maple-flavored steroids, caution, zombies, chefs, pumpkins, architectural criticism, interminable trivia, gardens, hikes, apple pie and french fries.

Kimelodic posted another above-the-clouds pic from the Corning Tower. (And she had a great time at Ben Folds at The Egg.)

Albany Jane witnessed some father-daughter bonding over a boot of beer.

Matt had some advice about how to ask a business owner for money. (And he also moved his blog to a new site.)

Mr. Dave scored a mongrel Neba at Mr. Subb.

Rebecca decided she'd rather be drinking Uncommon Grounds coffee instead of Starbucks.

Dawn went to a bookstore on "maple syrup flavored steroids."

Leigh was reminded to be careful.

Kate went to a zombie birthday party.

Steve asked which local chef should be on Top Chef.

Kristi recommended the Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze in the Hudson Valley.

FiS Dan and commenters engaged in some architectural criticism.

The Exiles went on a surreal pumpkin-picking trip.

Leah reviewed her garden.

Chuck went to The Trivia Night That Would Never End at Friday's.

B went on a fall hike.

Melissa made an apple pie -- and roasted marrow bones.

Naomi's CDs were recycled -- in a garden.

And Katelyn enjoyed some truffled french fries (yes, truffled) at the Van Dyke.

There's a lot more going on around the Neighborhood, check it out. We just added a handful of sites. If you know of another great local blog we should include -- or person to follow on Twitter -- post a comment or send us an email: editors |at| alloveralbany |dot| com.


What's with the "missing goat" signs all over Center Square????

Do something at a state park maybe? We had our anniversary at Thacher Park. There are a lot of logistics when you do it that way, but it's a beautiful view, there is a pavilion so you don't need a tent, and they have bathrooms so you don't need to rent potties.
