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.

Tried them out yesterday on my bike. It felt SO much safer than the rest of Madison. And guess what? Where it's 4 lanes, I had to take up a whole lane anyway because there is not enough space. This will definitely encourage others to ride bikes. And I have not seen any additional traffic. It's astonishing that in 2016 Albany still only has 2 bike lanes. We need lots more!
