Comments

Thanks for mentioning my blog post.

Madison Theater is special and it deserves to do well. If you haven't been since the remodel, do go see a movie and (of course) have some popcorn!

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
