What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: butchering skills, jobs, Miley Cyrus, Gloria Steinem, a bachelorette party, maple syrup, a birthday tour, Moveable Feast, octopus, poutine and banh mi, cobb salad, Tour de FroYo, old appetizers, trivia, ospreys, knitting, and the time when bridges were bridges.
