What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: bus frustration, parking meters, roller derby lessons, garage sales, sandwich marriage, morels, takeout, rabbit, burgers, weekends, roving landmarks, stars, the Greek festival and a wall.


Leigh has some frustrations with CDTA.

The RPInsider reports that it seems the campus is "slowly being surrounded by parking meters while the rest of the city is left mostly untouched."

Marcie learned six things during her first roller derby bout.

Naomi learned a few things at her garage sale -- and gave away some stuff on Facebook.

And Drew learned that there is always someone with more hanging baskets.

Nicole wants to marry a sandwich at the Wine 'N Diner.

It sounds like CAPow had a not-so-great breakfast the Circle Diner.

Jackie found morels!

Silvia got the takeout special at Sam's.

The Bee Balm Gal went for some beer and blues at the Jonesville Store.

Steve got a question about where to get rabbit.

Daniel triangulated his way toward the best possible burger from Juicy Burgers.

It's possible that Ned is trying to give himself a heart attack.

We think the Idiots like the teriyake burrito at the Cupcake Lab.

Tito shared her ideal weekend in Saratoga.

Carey and Rob had brunch and watched Saratoga's roving landmarks.

Mr. Dave made some salt potatoes.

Chuck tracked star trails in a cemetery.

Albaniana went shoulder-to-shoulder at the Greek festival.

Matt came across a vintage Beatle.

Melissa scored a beautiful mahogany dresser in Nassau, NY.

The Exiles went to Thacher Park the day before it closed.

And there appears to be a wedding wall spot waiting for Kristi.
