What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the mailman, covering Obama, CVS receipts, the hot pencil, the Old Stone Fort Museum, New York-Massachusetts-Vermont, Hoosic and Hudson, RPR, a day on the farm, the State Fair, 15 Church, the frankencake, Gus's, Troyster, a brew pub, and an ostentatious car.

Albaniana had an unnerving encounter with her mailman (or an insight into the power of metadata).

Rob questioned the decision of a local TV station to send a reporter to cover Barack Obama's appearances in Syracuse and Binghamton.

Stephanie detailed some of her absurdly long CVS receipts.

One of Kristi's readers report that there's a hot pencil this year. Yep, a pencil.

The Exiles visited the village of Schoharie and the Old Stone Fort Museum.

Jen rode through New York, Massachusetts, and Vermont -- on a bike.

Jackie explored where the Hoosic meets the Hudson.

Jona hiked Rocky Peak Ridge.

Crystal enjoyed a beautiful evening on Sacandaga Lake.

Kimberly spent a day at a farm in Schoharie County.

Chuck won some ribbons at the State Fair.

Steve got a preview of what's in store for 15 Church, the new Saratoga Springs restaurant that includes chef Jason Baker.

The Fuj on a frankencake from Cheesecake Machismo: "Upon opening the box is just a damn thing of beauty."

Jerry paid tribute to Gus's.

J+R checked out Troyster Tuesday at the Confectionery.

The Beer Doctors surveyed a brew pub in Syracuse.

And the Idiots had some reactions to a spotting a rather ostentation car in downtown Saratoga Springs.
