What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Meat Romney, a nation divided by Facebook, generator ethics, BUILT, surveillance, winning Halloween, mushroom hunting, tattoos, mozz and melba drama, white whales, Helsinki Hudson, disappointing breakfast, a beermosa, miSci, Nanovember, maps, and a face.

Behold: Meat Romney, Mr. Dave's latest creation.

Rob, on the election and Facebook: "Social media is bound to be the next thing that bitterly divides us."

Kristi considered the ethics of buying -- and then returning -- a generator around a storm.

Jackie went mushroom hunting in Moreau.

Crystal and her husband got complementing tattoos at Lark Tattoo for their anniversary.

Daniel is composing the next tour -- the Tour de Mozzarella and Melba. Oh, the controversy!

Emily had some tasty food at Helsinki Hudson.

It sounds like Aliza was disappointed by her breakfast experience at the Turf Club.

Ashley suggests not doing what she did at The Local.

Katie had a beermosa at Max London's.

Carl's "map fortnight" continues.

And Paula took a moment to admire a face at the Capitol.
