What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: outer buttcheek/thigh germs, Miss Albany, the proposed cabaret law, @hello, chicken wing cupcakes, the way to a woman's heart, the royal treatment, Mr. Subb, Schenectady restaurant week, beautiful food, the Troy waterfront, Abigail and John Adams, spots in Saratoga, and how to mend a broken heart.

The insane amount of lakes we have. When I left this area for a bit I was so confused that I couldn't just drive for 10-15 minutes and find a lake.
