What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: making pizza at DeFazio's, grilled cheese, "a rather grand failure," five courses, the case for vegan options, the most-often dish, tacos, kind people in line, "maniacal drivers," the ice trade, the Catskills, robins, SWF, and farewell.

Jon took the pizza making class at DeFazio's and shared lots of pics.

Recaps from the Cheese Traveler grilled cheese tasting, from Kim ("I was really impressed with the combination of ingredients each sandwich incorporated.") and Silvia ("...the killer combination of Flying Pigs ham, Fourme d'Ambert and Mingle's kimchi - an explosion of tastes that I'm still thinking about days later").

Jeff concluded a recent meal at The Capital in downtown Albany was "a rather grand failure on just about every front."

Ashley checked out a five-course meal by the new chef at the Wine Bar in Saratoga Springs.

Randal gently argued the case for vegan options at the Madison Pour House.

Jerry shared the dish he eats most often at the local restaurant at which he eats most often.

J+R surveyed the tacos at La Mexicana.

Stephanie encountered some kind people while standing in line during a hectic lunch-hour stop.

Amy had an exchange with "Dr. Wisdom."

Ethan after a recent bike ride: "I can't help but think it's a shame that we must risk our lives crossing the ring of maniacal drivers to get to the gem that is Washington Park's heart."

Rob shared remnants of the local ice trade.

Jen showshoed up a peak in the Catskills.

Jackie notes that robins are appearing during winter here more often.

Albaniana had a good experience at Stewart International Airport.

And as Alexa gets ready to move away, she reflected on some of the things she learned in Troy.
