What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: living forever, pie for breakfast, the awkwardness of middle school, The Book of Mormon, the grim past of an Albany park, the old riverfront, the Montezuma Refuge, foliage, restaurant kitchens, the bar at the Renaissance, diners, a burger, a beer dinner, sushi, tofu steak, and the Cathedral of St. Philco.

Two perspectives on food and life: Daniel on how to live forever, and Amy on eating pie for breakfast.

Silvia noted the "the beautiful awkwardness of middle school."

Jon offered a dissenting opinion on The Book of Mormon after seeing it at Proctors.

Paula recalled the grim past of the park in Albany's Ten Broeck Triangle.

Carl examined the Albany riverfront as it appeared in 1911.

We've passed the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge out past Syracuse many times (and made the required joke about refuge after revenge) -- but Julie actually stopped there to check it out. And there were a lot of birds.

Jen went for an autumnal trail run at Thacher Park.

Jackie took in the foliage along the upper Hudson River.

Dominic talked about the culture of restaurant kitchens.

Steve checked out the bar and restaurant at the new Renaissance Albany Hotel.

Zena has started off on a diner quest, first stop: Capital City Diner.

Ashley went to a mug club beer dinner at The Local in Saratoga Springs.

Albany Jane tried the all-you-can-eat sushi at Kuma Ani.

Randal enjoyed the tandoori tofu steak at New World.

Steve N. subjected himself to a "seared-in" burger at Applebees.

And Chuck created the "Cathedral of St. Philco."

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
