Bobby Flay EDIT: Lillian’s Restaurant is now closed. I love going to eat in Saratoga. There’s just a feel about the neighborhood that is different from anywhere else. I’ve luckily been able to eat in Saratoga a lot recently and about a week ago, I […]

“The idea is that there is a kind of memory in nature. Each kind of thing has a collective memory. So, take a squirrel living in New York now. That squirrel is being influenced by all past squirrels.”

Rupert Sheldrake On Tuesday, I was lucky enough to get a tour of the Gatherer’s Granola facilities. If that brand name sounds familiar to you, it’s because you either probably saw them at the Schenectady Greenmarket, ShopRite or Price Chopper. Gatherer’s Granola has made quite […]

Masaharu Morimoto I tried to get this blog out before I went to Florida but in the mix of packing and getting excited about Disney World I wasn’t able to. Also, based on how many directions my brain was in, I assume the blog wouldn’t […]

Maimonides I’ve been to Wheatfields (440 Broadway, Saratoga) once before and really enjoyed the pasta since almost all of it is made in-house. So (as a lot of my blog entries start) when I saw a Groupon for it, I jumped on the opportunity to […]

Jimi Hendrix I love music. I would find it hard to believe that there are people out there who don’t. I started guitar a few years ago and though I do enjoy it, I haven’t played it as much as I wish I did. I […]

“If you are cold, tea will warm you.  If you are too heated, it will cool you.  If you are depressed, it will cheer you.  If you are excited, it will calm you.”

Gladstone I don’t know about you but there’s a certain feeling I get when I walk into a library. Even if I’m not there to get a book, I just like being among them. I love how every library is different. Aside from when I […]

Robbie Coltrane EDIT: The Lager House is now closed. One of my favorite shows is Jeopardy. I love testing myself, seeing what I know and maybe learning a little bit in the process. That also means I love trivia nights. It seems as if every […]

George T. Hewett EDIT: Blue Spice is now closed. If you read my blog, you’ll know that this isn’t the first blog post that I’ve written that’s started out with either “So I bought a Groupon…” or “So I bought a LivingSocial…” and this is […]

“What I learned growing up on the farm was a way of life that was centered on hard work, and on faith and on thrift. Those values have stuck with me my whole life.”

Rick Perry I’ve written about Ellms Family Farm (448 Charlton Rd, Ballston Spa) before, they host a few events including OktoBEERfest that I went to last year. I’ve never been there to experience their general Fall activities so when I saw a LivingSocial deal, I decided […]

Warren Zevon I’m working merchandise for Wicked for the rest of the month (stop by and say Hello if you’re going to the show!). On the weekends, there are two shows and when I’m working both of them I need to eat. I’m usually really […]
