What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: summer trips, Vroman's nose, the ballet, SPAC then, a smiling dragonfly, the future of the Quintessence building, Saratoga summer drinks, suggestions, a vegetarian multi-course meal, food at Skidmore, espresso, and some sort of machine.
