Taste of Troy is starting up a new season of food/walking tours of downtown Troy. Blurbage for the three hour, 1.5-mile tour:

+ 5+ tastings, bites & sips - linked to Troy's past and present.
+ Discover New York's historic connection with craft brewing and how it has returned to flourish
+ Get an insider's tour of an entire Tiffany designed church interior - on the National Historic Register!
+ After exploring Troy's downtown, have time to shop in the year round Farmer's Market that brings local food to Troy's restaurants and you.

The tours are Saturday mornings and tickets are $49 for adults / $29 for kids.

Breakfast at Noon: Taste of Troy also has a special event -- "Breakfast at Noon" -- set for May 10 with Amy Halloran, author of The New Bread Basket:

Amy Halloran will guide us through the Farmers Market to meet the farmers who grew the ingredients selected for the savory and sweet crepes and waffles that will be enjoyed at the end of the tour. Then while Amy is off preparing our feast, Amy Koren-Roth (founder and forever foodie of Taste of Troy Food Tours) will set the historical stage of 19th Century Troy, including its special connection to a key kitchen tool and ingredient that will be used in preparing our breakfast feast. We will get insights into wine pairing for our meal at one of Clark Hospitality's many Troy establishments - Twenty-Two 2nd Street Wine Company. Finally returning to the Arts Center to savor our breakfast and get insights into grains.

Tickets are $55.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
