What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Victoria's Secret, catabetes, a player, hours, donations, Five Ribers, running, the Kayaderosseras Creek, Festival of Trees, the South Troy Burger, Henry Street Taproom, smores, Godzilla, ale, dessert, Chucksmas, and meatloafistry.

After trying to navigate through the tweens at Victoria's Secret, Stephanie started to wonder if she was "old fashioned and weird."

The onset of catabetes prompted Rob to consider how much he'd pay for his pets' health care (also: Walmart apparently sells insulin much cheaper than CVS).

While in the Albany Rural Cemetery, Carl happened upon the grave of a woman who was apparently quite the player.

The hours of some local businesses irk Daniel.

One of Kirsti's readers asked about where to donate menswear.

Albaniana got a history lesson about Five Rivers (Delmar Zoo?).

Jen ran the first Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club winter series race of the season.

Jackie saw how the banks of the Kayaderosseras Creek are being re-shaped the less the impact of flooding.

The Exiles went to the Festival of Trees (and unicorns, apparently) in Pittsfield.

Jerry braved the South Troy Burger at the Brown Bag: a bacon burger on a glazed doughnut with peanut butter.

Aliza checked out the new Henry Street Taproom in Saratoga.

Emily tried the smores from DreamPuff Marshmallows.

Silvia started 12 days of Christmas with dining in her neighborhood.

Ashley had a Godzilla roll at Phila Fusion, and then had some donuts.

The Masticating Monkey tried some special holiday ale from Trader Joe's.

One of Steve's readers asked about late night dessert spots.

Katie is already missing her CSA share.

Albany Jane shared photos from the Tour de Mozz and Melba.

Question from Mr. Dave: "What Local Personality Should I Immortalize in [Meat]Loaf?"

And this is how you celebrate Chucksmas.

Had completely forgotten about Trader Joe's. Woop.
