What's up in the Neighborhood

A clip from "The Beat of Officer Harris."

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Lark Street at night, the Albany Almshouse, how we treat animals, not finding a dog-friendly apartment, Rosary Beard, speakeasy vibe, restaurant value, the Tour de Hard Ice Cream, ridiculously fun ravioli, 20 words, the Crossings, waste places, and Fifty Shades of Gray.

Chuck created an interesting multi-camera, multi-shot composite photo of Lark Street at night.

Akum surveyed one month -- July 1875 to be exact -- from the Albany's Almshouse.

The arrival of the circus in town prompted some thoughts from Rob about how animals are treated.

Laura highlighted how hard it is to find a dog-friendly apartment in Albany.

It sounds like Ethan had a good time at the Rosary Beard show at Steamer 10.

At American Troyalty, Ike scoped out the planning commission agenda for signs of a new bar location that "just oozes a speakeasy vibe."

Cap2Cap considered value at local restaurants.

Daniel has announced the Tour de Hard Ice Cream.

Emily took a "ridiculously fun" ravioli class at Gio Culinary Studio in Voorheesville.

Jerry had a loud dinner at Maestro's.

The Idiots shared 20 word reviews of 3 new restaurants in Saratoga.

One of Steve's readers asked about good restaurants for kids in the greater Lark Street area.

Silvia enjoyed a half portion of lobster mac and cheese at Mingle -- though she might be the last person to ever get a portion of it that size.

Randal combined Mahar's with Curry House.

Kristi is willing to exercise her rights to the bike path at the Crossings.

The Exiles took in the insects on Schodack Island.

Jackie finds beauty even in "waste places."

And, heh, Ned didn't find Fifty Shades of "Gray" all that erotic.

I always got the feeling the people at Mahar's don't want to be blogged about haha.
