Fro yo war!

Or, at least, fro yo skirmish! The 16 Handles chain is opening a location in Albany -- McKownville, actually. The company wouldn't tell us where, exactly. (A rep for Stuyvesant Plaza said it's not the spot. So, we're guessing -- and it's only a guess -- Crossgates. The mall seems unlikely now that Yeh! is going there.) That would put it in close competition with the new-style TCBY that opened on Western Ave across from Stuyvesant Plaza last November. The area's first 16 Handles opened in Clifton Park a year ago.

Maybe the old Wendy's on Western? If not can you find out what's going in there?

That spot is going to be a deli:

I don't know that I could think of a worse name for a yogurt place than "16 Handles" (makes me think of CB radios and truckers) but some of the flavors look way yum!

I'm intrigued...

16 Handles has it on their website map...

oh great. if this map is showing the accurate exact location, then I'm doomed. it's literally right across the street from my work...

@Jamie, Rebecca: I saw that map location, but it's in the parking lot for a UAlbany office building. I figured it could be going into University Plaza next door, but all the spots in the plaza are currently occupied.

Part of SUNY is in McKownville. I do not believe any part of Crossgates is in McKownville.

@Kerosena: I wondered about the borders of McKownville. I agree that Crossgates seems more McKownville-adjacent than actually in it.

I'd like to find a hamlet map of the Capital Region. We have all these ill-defined places.

16 Handles is now opening soon in Glenmont!

... I tend to ask questions that make the person think about what they just said. I ask it sweetly and in a tone that notes confusion on my part. I have been called honey in the office and asked the person, " Can I ask what you mean when you call me honey? Because you don't call John honey." It calls out that he's treating you differently for being a woman. If he still doesn't get it, you can be more direct: "I appreciate that you respect my work and treat me equally, but I wouldn't want others to think otherwise based on how you address me."
