What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a first trip to the Track, apathy and hot dogs, CBS and TWC, Megabus, an ADK weekend, peaks, Vermont, Canajoharie, a farewell, shooting lessons, volunteering, the Washington County Antiques Fair, flora in the clouds, 100 acres, Capital Region food culture, fresh tomatoes, sashimi, architecture, a dog detective, pie crust, and two year olds.

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.

A large, interesting party space in Albany?
