What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: trails, an island in the lake, Tough Mudder, side trip poutine, Four Fat Fowl, a cooking class, City Beer Hall, ample chicken parm, dodging the news, silver status, and why.

Kimberly enjoyed the cheese at the Four Fat Fowl launch party. (Some backstory from Steve.)

Jon and Otis checked out a class at the new Price Chopper Market Bistro.

The Fuj recapped a Founders wild game beer dinner at City Beer Hall. And Jerry tried the short rib melt at CBH.

Albany Jane on the sushi at Sake in Latham.

Rob dodged the newspaper delivery.

One of Chuck's Albany Twilight League photos won an award in a San Francisco photo competition.
