The Confectionery opening

bar at the confectionery in TroyThe Charles F. Lucas Confectionery -- the new wine/coffee bar from Vic Christropher and Heather LaVine in Troy -- is on track to open this Friday at 5 pm, Christopher told us today. They had planned to open last week, but shipments from their wine suppliers got held up by Sandy.

The renovated interior of the building at 12 2nd Street is gorgeous -- definitely worth a look when you have the chance.

Comments

I work right around the corner from there. They have done wonders with that space.

F I N A L L Y ! ! Congratulations, can't wait to get inside!

I wish they were going to be open earlier in the day on Saturday. I go to the Troy Farmers Market and would love to have a place to go and relax before and/or after for some good coffee and espresso. It still seems like this place will be worth the trip back into Troy at night though.

For print resolution, not-for-profit Albany-specific historic images (photos. prints, paintings and advertising) Dave's best bet would be the Albany Institute's website. They have a collections database of thousands of images to choose from, and depending on the size, reproductions can be made in a price range of $15 to $55 dollars.
