What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: quality time with llamas, the humane society, hiking, odd German cakes, apple cider, the Troy Winter Market, potatoes, veggie burgers, a price cut, coupons, the flu and those people.


Naomi got some one-on-one llama time.

Nicole got a tour of the Hudson River Humane Society.

B went hiking in the Adirondacks.

Mr. Dave had a great 99 cent snack at the Asian Supermarket on Central. And he made some rare finds at the Schenectady Aldi.

Leah's husband brought home a refrigerator's-worth of apples -- and they made cider with people in the neighborhood.

Daniel B shared some of his favorites from the Troy Winter Market.

Bee Balm Gal picked up Adirondack Blues at the Ballston Spa Winter Farmers' Market.

One of Steve's readers (OK, it was Kristi) asked about local places with great veggie burgers.

FiS Dan noticed a significant price cut in downtown Saratoga.

Albany Jane says Hannaford has been giving out some "uber-lame" coupons lately.

Skidmore Unofficial's editor is sick of hearing about the flu.

And TQL made her return to the online 'hood -- and it turns out she's one of those people. (That would be Council Member-elect TQL.)

While I understand why they're saying there isn't enough demand, I also am positive I would use cabs more if they were even slightly more affordable and reliable. I have zero interest in using the taxis in Albany, and would rather alter my plans (if possible) than use their service. I feel like the cab companies are saying this is a demand issue, when really it's just a "I dislike you so much, I'd rather find ANY alternative to avoiding you" issue.
