What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: civilization at its best, the new domesticity, negative pixie cut energy, Saratoga gifts, local currency, madrigals, a gala, Red Hook, kidneys, hash, dim sum, marzipan, Field Goods, Albany to Pennsylvania, seeds, a sunrise, a new arrival.

Amy took in a "spectacle of civilization at its best."

Emily had a lot of thoughts about "the new domesticity."

Christine on pushing back against the negative pixie cut energy. (It's about hair, but we'd say it's also about more than hair.)

The Idiots shared some Saratoga gift ideas.

Greg Back floated the idea of a local currency for craft beer in New York.

Albaniana caught the Helderberg Madrigal Singers at Troy Music Hall.

Silvia had a good time at the Albany Center Gallery's Speakeasy Gala at 90 State Street.

Kimberly and Alexa stopped at Bread & Bottle in Red Hook.

The Bee Balm Gal bought kidneys at the Saratoga farmers' market.

Jerry was pleased by the corned beef hash eggs benedict at Nosh.

J+R checked out dim sum at Hong Kong Bakery and Bistro.

Ashley testified for Max London's.

One of Steve's readers asked finding marzipan.

Jen got her first bag of vegetables from Field Goods.

Randal milled corn.

Chuck went to NYC for a holiday weekend.

If you've been wondering about Daniel B in Princeton, Albany Jane recapped a recent visit with "The Veal of People." (It's true, Daniel has been walking. We've witnessed it firsthand.)

Carl is adjusting from Albany to Pennsylvania.

Jackie turned her eye for detail to seed pods.

The Fuj captured an electric sunrise.

And congrats to Kristi and her husband on the arrival of their baby!


Hopefully Albany Jane's piece will reassure people that even though the "veal of people" is now walking and otherwise exercising, his "fat tooth" is still in good shape.

Thanks for the props, AOA, and for taking a very broad view of what constitutes neigborhood!

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...
