What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Mickey Rooney, breaking up with winter, parenthood, picking up roots, trail running, beautiful streams, the last snowshoe hike, 15 Church, tea, very good bagel taste, pho, a wrap, and maple brain.

Rob shared a story about sitting next to Mickey Rooney at The Track.

Amy sent a breakup letter to Winter.

Silvia: "I paused, thinking about how parenthood at times feels like a series of nearly physical exertions - sometimes we push from behind, other times pull from ahead."

Carl on some of the frustrations of picking up roots. And ceiling medallions.

Jen ran the Robert Parker School trail race (as did Silvia also).

Chuck managed not to fall into the water while taking some beautiful photos in Saratoga County.

Jackie took what she hopes is the last snowshoe hike of the season.

Ashley recapped her first meal at the new 15 Church Street in Saratoga Springs.

J+R checked out the Short and Stout Tea Company.

Lorre visited Bread and Honey multiple times "to make sure that the very good bagel taste is consistent and for real and it is."

Jon sampled pho -- and high school theater.

It was a wrap for Jerry at Professor Java's.

And Christine has maple brain.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
