What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Sean Rowe, house hunting, an unusual ad, people who chose not to have kids, thinking about 31, supermarket flyers, restaurant pricing, the Capital Region's "Secret Hot Dog Shop-Phone Booth-Bar" taco night, cucumber/mango/salmon, Old Chatham, another act of meatloafistry, herzlichen gluckwunsch, turkey tails, and a dream window.
