What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: home ownership, over-served young ladies, chefs, lobster, corn, disappointing beans, customer service, pizza, Saratoga, hot yoga, ospreys, Lake George and a visual joke.

Albany Jen, an Albany home owner herself, wonders if homeownership is always a good thing.

Silvia "couldn't believe how many young, drunk girls there were flopping all over the place" at the John Mayer show at SPAC.

Daniel wrote an open letter to Capital District chefs.

Steve says Tai has "an expensive gem lurking" on its menu.

Drew is searching for good corn.

CAPow came away from Hattie's a little disappointed.

BK had a less-than-inspiring customer service experience at the Hannaford seafood counter.

Jen got a pizza piled with veggies at Inferno.

Rebecca went to hot yoga in Saratoga.

Kristi kept a count while out on the town in Saratoga.

Carey ran through some of the not-so-great parts about riding her bike to work.

Jackie watched ospreys along Ballston Creek.

Bandit went to Shelburne Falls.

The Bee Balm Gal relaxed at Silver Bay.

And this will make you laugh.
