What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: parents night, yoga, jury duty, a marathon, a flux capacitor, the Cider Donut Burger, Madison Station, chowder iron chefs, the Scotia Diner, Sciortino's, Manchester, MMW, a PSA, feet, European-ness, trivia, leaf blowers, and a moody bee.

Jerry had an unpleasant experience as a juror. (He had a much better experience at Johny's Diner.)

Christine went to Kripalu for a yoga retreat and it appears she had an excellent time.

Kayla checked out the new Madison Station in Albany.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
