MIDDAY RAMBLE: The Troy Record

A little over a month ago I sat down with a friend of mine who also happen to work for The Troy Record and we talked about my blog, my work, my life, etc. I posted this on my Facebook and Twitter before but realized […]

Katharine Hepburn For those of you who know me, know that I work for a particular group of radio stations. I don’t tend to name them because my opinions don’t necessarily reflect their opinions and vice versa and all that jazz. I’ve been lucky enough […]

Unknown Trader Joe’s (79 Wolf Road, Colonie) graced the Capital District about a month ago and though Trader Joe’s as an establishment isn’t local, it is a local location so I’m stretching it a little bit to talk about the two most recent things I […]

Aldous Huxley Summer is coming to an end which means the end of outdoor music festivals and the beginning of pumpkins, beautiful leaves and a little colder weather. Don’t worry though, there’s still plenty of time to take part in all of the great summer […]

Freddy Mercury Usually on Wednesdays I write about a local blog but since it’s August and there are some great outdoor events I want to talk about, I’m gonna have to put that on hold for a bit. Every Wednesday in Downtown Troy (The parking […]

Parks and Recreation (NBC) EDIT: DP Dough is now closed. I love pizza. Pizza is one of those foods (and I think it’d be hard to find someone to disagree) that I couldn’t get sick of. You can put anything on pizza, it’s ever-changing, and as […]

Jo Brand EDIT: Chocolate Gecko is now in Newton Plaza, Latham. I love online coupons have it be LivingSocial or Groupon, they not only give me ideas of new places to try but a discount to try them with! One of the more recent Groupons […]

Kathy Mattea It seems as if recently there are more and more frozen yogurt places opening in the 518- no problem there with me! From the outside, they all look about the same, offering you the same kinds of yogurt and same toppings but in actuality they’re […]
