What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: not voting for Cuomo, jazz at the rumble site, woodland finds, a long hike, Grant's Cottage, the Saratoga Wine & Food Fest, beer week in Troy, salad, the right decision at the right time, sashimi with twigs, watching football, a metal silhouette of a massacre, an abandoned car wash, and goodbye.

Silvia shared why she's never voting for Andrew Cuomo again.

Hollie recapped the Saratoga Wine & Food Fest for Daniel. And Steve shared a bunch of pics from the festival's grilling event.

The Bee Balm Girl enjoyed the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival, even though the rain site "seemed like a better site for a rumble between the Sharks and the Jets than for a jazz concert."

Jackie detailed some of her interesting woodland finds during a recent week.

Wayfarer Christine and Jen had a long and wet hike up one of the Adirondack high peaks, but at least the people were fantastic.

Julie checked out Grant's Cottage in Wilton.

The Fuj recapped a few beer week events in Troy: a beer dinner at The Grocery and a tap event at The Ruck.

Zena survey the salad options at Whole Foods.

The Chopsticks Optional crew declared that a choice to stop into Tara Kitchen in Schenectady was "the right decision at the right time."

Jerry's sashimi at Shogun was served with twigs.

At Saratoga Food Fanatic, a roundup of good bars to watch sports in Saratoga Springs.

Carl on his love for the Schenectady sign at the Great Western Bridge: "Because where else will you find a metal silhouette of a massacre?"

Chuck took some photos at an abandoned car wash in Latham.

And farewell to Albaniana.
