What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: fire, rights, running in sub-zero weather, unintentional Gatorade slush, appreciation, how to meet people, gilding the fathead lilly, sweet potatoes, Boar's Head, Taiwan Noodle, the Ruck, one day, and frost.

Cmaxby had advice on how to meet friends in Troy.

Jerry loved the gilding of the fathead lilly at the Flying Chicken in Troy.

Daniel got "best sweet potatoes I've ever had" at the Schenectady Greenmarket.

The Beer Doctors recapped Stone Brewing night at The Ruck.

A few of Chuck's photos are in the "One Day: 12-12-12" exhibit at the PhotoCenter of the Capital District.
