What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: meeting new people, exposure, an experience with cultural and anthropological implications, trivia trash talk, a focused tattoo, tipping, the best sushi, Valente's Three Little Pigs Macaroni and Cheese, Chowderfest, Western Mass brewpubs, ridiculous wings, eggs, antiques, porcupines, and Arent Van Curler.

One of Kristi's readers asked about how a 20something new to the area could meet new people.

Steve asked people if they'd be willing to pay higher prices at restaurants if tipping was eliminated.

The Masticating Monkey says Mizu Sushi in Schenectady is the "easily the best sushi we've tried in the Albany area."
