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.

Seconding the above. Albany Youth Soccer. I played for many years with this organization. Absolutely excellent experience. Good mix of fun and hard work. Very diverse group of kids and coaches. Well organized. Many other kids I knew growing up in Albany played as well. In my opinion this is the integral kids sports experience.
