What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: books, Canada, fireworks, Tanglewood, postcards, change, the Hudson, sushi, a grassfed burger, cooking mayors, tapas, steamboats, and Meatloafy the Whale.

Tim wandered among the volumes at Lyrical Ballad in Saratoga.

Rob was apparently some sort of threat to Canada.

Jen had a picnic on the lawn at Tanglewood.

Albaniana checked out the Steamboat Meet in Waterford.

The Bee Balm Gal went on the Secret Gardens Tour in Saratoga.

Carl's been sharing vintage Albany postcards this week.

The exit of the Aqua Ducks got Chuck thinking about when things go away/close/change -- whether you want them to or not.

Jackie commemorated two decades of her stretch of the Hudson River.

It sounds like Jerry enjoyed eating at the new Shogun on Madison in Albany -- but got caught up on temperature.

Daniel says the grassfed burger at the City Beer Hall is "now the burger to beat."

Steve was a judge for the Municipal Cookoff, a cooking competition with mayors/supervisors from local municipalities.
