One of the kitchens on this year's tour.

The Historic Albany Foundation's annual holiday house tour is December 9.

This year's tour includes at least 12 sites, among them a restored colonial on South Pine Ave:

One example from this year's tour is a 1920s classical center-hall colonial revival on South Pine Avenue, reflecting the grace of the 19th and 20thcenturies. The owners Kimberly, an artist and designer, and her husband Edward Marks have taken great care with their kitchen remodel to keep the historic character of the home in tact while blending the past with the present. Holiday decorating in this family home shimmers each year with a fresh approach to creating Christmas cheer.

The tour is from noon-4 pm on the 9th. Tickets are $25 / $15 students until December 5. After that, they're $30 / $20.

I went to polish school, I grew up eating polish food, I even help cook polish food at the biannual polish dinner/ dances and even dressed up like a polish soldier for parades, so l guess I'm polish AND there is nothing better than going to Muza's for the food I grew up that is just as good as moms.
