A few things to do Thanksgiving morning

golf course closedIf you're not among the approximately 7,000 people planning on Turkey Trotting Thursday morning in Troy, chrisck sent along a few things to do:

1. The Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society is having a dog walk at Capital Hills golf course in Albany from 9 am to 11 am. Golf season is over now and anyone can walk there for free (as Otto knows), but that morning will be an opportunity to help out the animal shelter.

2. I saw in the TU Reglion calendar that there are two Polka Masses in the area Thursday morning. Both 10:00 am, at the Church of St. Adalbert (550 Lansing St, Schenectady) and St. Michael's Church (36 Page Ave, Cohoes). Non-perishable food items for the food pantry will be collected at both masses. Polka masses are a pretty interesting Polish-American phenomenon, even a bit controversial since some Catholics consider the music profane because it is "dance music."

Know of anything else interesting going on Thanksgiving morning? Please share.

Comments

If you need coffee (or a place to hide out) Flavour Cafe in Troy is open til 3pm on Thanksgiving. I raid their wifi enough that I felt obligated to share that.

I am stranded up in albany because of work hours tonight and all through the weekend and wanted to know if there are any thanksgiving eve party locations/ and anywhere i can get a good semi-traditional meal tomorrow before 3 pm?
peace, love, and happy thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving, AOA! :D

The way the light hits the State Ed. building in the evening. It shines just through Alfred E. Smith, the LOB, and the Capitol and catches the corner columns in this orange glow. I don't know why, but I just find it stunning.
