What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: an opportunity for kindness, summer paradise, train running, the Catskills, a swank party, the Troy Pig Out, favorite places, iPads, dinner in Watervliet, Mio Posto, outstanding ribs, road trip pizza, and China.

The train provided Chuck with an opportunity to do something nice for another person.

Jackie shared some scenes from a summer paradise (which, in this case, is Pyramid Lake).

Jen went to a trail running camp at Dippikill in the Adirondacks.

Wayfarer Christine hiked Wittenberg and Cornell mountains in the Catskills -- and noted some differences between the Catskills and Adirondacks.

Silvia, Goddess of Reading, attended the Siro's Cup party in Saratoga.

The Fuj checked out the barbecue competition at the Troy Pig Out.

Back in the Capital Region, Daniel visited a few of his favorite places.

Steve shared some thoughts about using an iPad for ordering at a restaurant.

Julie had a "fantastic" dinner at Local Flavor Cafe in Watervliet.

Ashley says Mio Posto is one of Saratoga's great restaurants.

Jerry had "outstanding" ribs at Cella Bistro.

Kimberly says the kale and roasted tomato eggs benedict at the City Beer Hall is "to die for."

Albany Jane road tripped for pizza in northeast Pennsylvania.

And not local, but very interesting: Katelyn shared a bunch of stuff from her recent trip to China.
