What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: dogs and chickens, being old and stodgy, amphibian patrol, Montreal, Williamstown, the Dinosaur, frozen yogurt, piss beer, local ham, the kosher Chopper, rhubarb, and the ghosts of pitchers and Shakers.

Kevin says the time has come for Albany to ban dogs.

Kristi sounded sounded "old and stodgy and out of touch."

Jackie was on amphibian patrol. (She also found ramps in a roadside ditch.)

Cap2Cap spent 27 hours in Montreal.

Carey and Rob day tripped in Williamstown.

Daniel B revised his thoughts on the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que after a tour of the kitchen. And Jerry also revisited the Dinosaur.

Ashallann dragged her family to Clifton Park for frozen yogurt at 16 Handles.

Mr. Dave continued his tour of the Piss Beers of Upstate New York.

Drew, now eating meat like a beer snob chooses beer, ate some local ham.

Leah the Nosher says the kosher Chopper had a Christmas shopping season-like feel ahead of Passover.

Steve posted photos from of the Canstruction sculptures at the State Museum.

The Exiles saw where Montezuma relaxes after he's had his revenge.

Chuck mourned the impending closure of Stuyvesant Photo.

Paula gazed into a face at the Capitol.

Rochelle's rhubarb is coming up.

And Rob visited what was once Heritage Park.
