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.

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.

peace, love, and happy thanksgiving.
