What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a glorious floral vista, Parker Dunn, company roots, nostalgia, avoiding the treppenwitz moment, cycling, running, middle management, dogs on restaurant patios, Hong Kong Bakery and Bistro, deviled eggs, and burlap.

Jackie took in the "glorious floral vista" of the lupine in bloom at the Wilton Wildlife Preserve -- and the Karner Blue butterfly.

The Friends of Albany History told the story of Parker Dunn, the namesake of the Dunn Memorial Bridge.

Carl traced the roots of a current Green Island company back to 1921 -- and a regrettable name.

Kristi scooped up some Capital Region nostalgia.

Roger was pleased to not have a treppenwitz moment after a close call on his bike.

A bike ride through Albany helped Silvia look forward.

Rob thought about how running helps him think about things.

Dominic considered the role of chef as middle management.

One of Steve's readers asked about dog-friendly restaurant patios.

Daniel's family had a feast in the private room at Hong Kong Bakery and Bistro.

Otis shared his sauce packet deviled eggs. "I usually carry an assortment of sauce packets in my travel bag (inside a Ziploc bag, to catch any leakage) and you should too."

And Chuck is almost finished with his burlap bag art project.
