What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: acceptance, delivered tomatoes, hipster critical mass, an unfunny crowd, unidentified fried dough, cheap eats, bridal shops, hiking, Bennington, yoga, and cats and dogs.

Silvia went to wedding in Lenox that was "miles away in terms of acceptance" relative to New York.

Bennett has been enjoying the Heldeberg Market.

Daniel lamented the Capital Region's lack of a hipster critical mass.

Kevin went to a comedy show a The Egg and found the crowd very unfunny.

Jerry got a look at the soon to be (re)open(ed) Scubbers.

Let it be know that Albany Jane isn't afraid to eat an unidentified giant puff of fried dough from a strange takeout place in Schenectady.

Steve asked for people's favorite local cheap eats spot.

Daniel B enjoyed a spin at the Schenectady Greenmarket.

One of Kristi's readers asked about the best local bridal shop.

The Bee Balm Gal came across a guy in a loin cloth while walking along the Hudson.

Jackie hiked the Western Ridge Trail.

Drew hiked Sleeping Beauty Mountain.

Albaniana got some twice-picked apples.

The Exiles went old-school in Bennington.

Jen went to a free yoga class in Delmar.

Kim went to a classic movie at the Palace.

Rob has been wearing a cat for warmth.

And it's Bandit at the wedding.


Thanks for the link as always!

That wedding in Lenox sounds like everything a wedding should be. Great post (and photo).

Thanks again, those tomatoes are some seriously good stuff. Ordered another five pounds and got three more of those huge orange suckers. Now it's on to squash, squash, squash...

Update: Scubbers had their soft opening today with a limited menu (everything except sandwiches was available). I wrote one of my "derryX Dines" reviews; read it here http://derryx.com/?p=1018 .

I also was the first customer and became mayor on foursquare. How's that for dedication!?
