Night photos at Art Omi, by Sebastien.

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a really long relay, Omi at night, the Starlite, the Big E, a tattoo for mom, pizza in Latham, Tierra Farm, bulgokee, Pho Yum, the New York System Wiener, rolling out of the restaurant, hibachi, pumpkin beer, a heart explosion, power, Henry Street, chimney sweeps, banana peels.

Jen ran legs of the 192.7 mile Adirondack Ragnar Relay.

Sebastien took some beautiful night photos at Art Omi.

Ashallann stopped by the still-standing-but-for-how-much-longer Starlite Theater.

Chuck scored some high marks at the Big E.

Bob says Roy McDonald's loss was about more than same-sex marriage.

Stephanie took her mom to get a tattoo.

The Masticating Monkey recommended the pizza at Roma(n) in Latham. (And had a bad experience at Ali Baba.)

Katie checked out the store at Tierra Farm.

Jerry enjoyed the bulgokee at Mingle.

Silvia enjoyed her visit to Pho Yum.

Mr. Dave experienced the "New York System Wiener" at the Big E.

Crystal's been taste-testing a bunch of pumpkin beers.

Angelos sampled the fall beers from Brown's.

Daniel identified what he thinks is the best application of the All Good Bakers bialy.

Aliza practically had to roll herself out of the Parting Glass.

One of Steve's readers asked about the best place for hibachi.

Jessica's says her heart explodes at the sight of the Troy Music Hall.

One of Kristi's readers asked about finding a chimney sweep. (Sadly, they didn't also ask about finding a nanny with an umbrella.)

The Idiots are excited about Henry Street in Saratoga.

The Exiles visited the Blenheim-Gilboa power project.

Jackie took in some wonderful autumnal colors.

Albaniana went to a Humanities Institute for Lifelong Learning lecture.

And Rob would like you to mind the banana peels.

"Mr. Dave experienced the "New York System Wiener" at the Big E."

There's an Andrew Cuomo joke in there. I just wish I was clever enough to tease it out.
