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.
