Schenectady Wing Walk 2018

Schenectady Wing Walk 2018 logoUpdate October 2: It's now sold out.
The Wing Walk returns to downtown Schenectady October 6. More than 20 restaurants will be offering their takes on the chicken wing, and tasters get to vote for their favorite. Blurbage:

On the day of the event, show up at the Proctors box office anytime after 10am to exchange your ticket receipt (if you pre-purchase online) for your Wing Walk map/ballot. Beginning at noon, stroll around to the various restaurants and sample one wing per location, making sure to get your map/ballot stamped by each restaurant. Once you sample at least 10 wings, you can vote for your favorite by marking your map/ballot and dropping it at one of several drop-box locations around downtown (locations will be noted on your map/ballot).

That link at the top includes a list of the participating restaurants and the wings they'll be making.

The Wing Walk is Saturday, October 6 from noon-5 pm. Tickets are $12 adults / $7 for kids and students -- and they're available online. The event is capped at 2,000 tickets and it's sold out in the past.

Child care
Here's something you don't see a lot for events: The Capital District YMCA - Schenectady Branch will be offering child care in conjunction with the Wing Walk. Pre-registration is required and it costs $5 per hour. See the bottom of the linked event page for details.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
