What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a fight, local ingredients, a sign, soft serve, two-year-olds and Jaeger bombs, Jewish food, Hudson, chili dogs, addictive Indian food, gigantic sandwiches, downtown Saratoga, the Pine Bush, and a hobbit's summer retreat.

Kevin says the headline on the recent story about the student fight video from Shen should have been: "FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT! You guys, there's a fight! C'mon, look!"

Rob is the latest to see the Jesus limo. He's taking it as a sign.

Jackie came across the grisly work of some coyotes (or something).

Steve wondered if people were willing to pay more for local ingredients.

Daniel B's has posted the route for the Tour de Soft Serve this Saturday.

Noted: taking his two-year-old daughter to a place with $5 Jaeger bombs is not high on Mr. Dave's list.

It sounds like Albany Jane enjoyed the Jewish food festival in Schenectady.

Jerry ate all over on Saturday: Coxsackie, Hudson, Lark Street.

Jen says she's in love with the pizza at Baba Louie's in Hudson.

Rochelle had a chili dog at Broadway Lunch in Schenectady.

C2C says "clearly there's an addictive substance" in the bhel poori at Karavalli.

Matt says the "the greatest gigantic sandwiches in the area" are at Genoa Imports in Loudonville.

FiS Dan thinks things are looking up in downtown Saratoga retail.

Silvia lived "la vida Baumgartner" for a few hours at the Pink Party.

The Exiles went for a walk in the Pine Bush.

Chuck posted some nice photos from along the Thruway out around Amsterdam.

Sebastien came across what could only be a hobbit's summer retreat in Vermont.

Paula came across a stop sign that you can't touch.


Other people have seen the Jesus limo? WHEW!

My roommate saw the Jesus limo the other day parked in the DMV/Alb County Dept of Health's parking lot.

Am I the only one who doesn't care what people are eating on a daily basis? Isn't there more to blog about than just food?

@Madmartigan - Is the Times Union's Best of the Capital Region Reader's Choice poll about food?

Note to self: chart obesity rates against rise in number of food blogs...

Much thanks for the support, Greg and Mary - sorry I didn't respond sooner, as I've been on the road - yes - taking more pictures. Hee.
