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.

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.
