Jewish Food Festival 2013

challah_congregation_gates_of_heaven.jpgThe annual Jewish Food Festival at Congregation Gates of Heaven in Schenectady is this Sunday (March 10). Blurbage:

Last year over 600 food lovers attend this annual festival to fest on all the Jewish food favorites (kosher style) they can eat including classics such as homemade matzo ball soup, knishes, kugel, and rugeluch, NYC-style bagels, bialys, and lox, whitefish, kosher hot dogs, beef brisket, and much more. Sample a variety of foods prepared by the Capital District's very best restaurants and caterers including Price Chopper's Ben and Bill's Deli, Glen Sanders Mansion, Schmaltz Brewing, Gershon's Deli, Homestyle Catering, Honest Weight Food Co-op, Phoenician's Restaurant, Saati's Catering, Different Drummers Kitchen, and many more.

We also hear that Daniel B. and Leah the Nosher will be there.

Admission is $15.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids 13-17, and free for kids 12 and under -- and it's unlimited samples with admission.

It amazes me that people still pin budgetary issues for old post-industrial upstate cities on individual mayors. This is a nationwide problem for all but the largest cities. But it's depressing that issues like getting vacant or dilapidated properties back on the tax rolls or making it easier for small businesses to open are being addressed and no one even notices. Given that, exactly what incentive is there for any politician to do anything? I'll give all the candidates a fair hearing, Sheehan included. But if we want to have any chance of fixing our problems, we really need to start acknowledging the progress we have made.
