What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: different perspectives on Chowderfest, a January without wine, spa food, Super Bowl Sunday dining, architectural criticism of the ESP, the old Dudley Observatory sites, the business of 19th century churches, an old map, doctor's office waiting room etiquette, emergency departments, (not) rooting for your kid, budgeting, Trivia Bowl, February, and sparkly snow.
