What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: chickens, violets, the Palace, getting cheap, a wedding shower, beef tongue and octopus, pizza, eggs, mounted sharks, sliced bread, detailing, and a birthday.

Rob wonders if backyard chickens would have kept him in Albany.

Jackie took a close look at the violets that are everywhere.

Chuck took a beautiful photo of the Palace Theater.

After dropping $15 on "three itty bitty sandwiches" at Brueggers, Leigh wondered if she was "getting cheap in my old age."

Kristi had what looks like was a lovely wedding shower at Sperry's.

Rochelle went to a new Vietnamese restaurant in Halfmoon.

Albany Jane enjoyed the beef tongue and octopus toastada at New World.

Silvia had a "beautiful circle of love" at Cafe Capriccio.

Cap2Cap says the kitchen at Jake Moon knows how to make an egg.

MsGarlic says the pizza has improved at Bellini's.

Crystal sat underneath the shark mounted on the wall at Bob & Ron's.

Leah the Nosher enjoyed some "deliciously fried goodness" at Jumpin' Jacks.

Mr. Dave picked up an individually-packaged slice of bread at Stewart's.

Matt says the detailing his truck got at a place in Averill Park left him speechless.

The Exiles spent a day at the Powell Wildlife Sanctuary in Columbia County.

Jen ran a 5k and 10k at the Corning Preserve -- on the same day.

And the Fussy Little Blog is two years old. Time flies when you're being fussy.

Thanks for the support, Greg and Mary - I have a really good feeling about entering this Palace Theater picture in competition this year!

That food at New World looks especially amazing.

@Chuck, I love love love that photograph. Your use of the light and the long exposure do indeed mask the modern LED marquee, and make the shot totally timeless. Love.

You achieved your goal, definitely. I'd vote for it! Good luck!
