What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the napkin code, the Tour de FroYo, burgers on Broadway, burnt ends, bagels, harmonic convergence, restaurant servers, after graduation, drive-thru impatience, bike rides, kermis, local TV then, and one more destination.

Amy cracked the napkin code at 677 Prime, in comic fashion.

Daniel shared results from the Tour de FroYo.

Ashley urged people to try the brownie sundae at Harvest and Hearth.

Lorre experienced harmonic convergence because of the gazpacho at The Hollow.

Steve asked people how they know when they have a good restaurant server.

Jerry cooked a celebratory one-year anniversary meal with the help of some local purveyors.

At Skidmore Unofficial, 10 things about life after graduation.

Katelyn reacted to impatience in the drive-thru better than we would have.

Albaniana delivered books to the Grassroots Givers, which store items in an empty swimming pool at the old YMCA in Albany.

Ethan pitched the idea of more tweed rides -- that don't necessarily involve tweed.

Carl recounted that time there was a kermis in Schenectady.

More lovely wildflower photos from Jackie.

Jen ran the Bear Mountain Half Marathon.

Rob remembered working with Chris Jansing at WNYT, and one of the heydays of local TV.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
