[Make sure you check out PART 2 as well!] I love local products- could you guess? Last week, I had the opportunity to give a few local products a taste at Whole Foods for the pre-cursor event to their 2nd Anniversary Party last weekend. I had […]

Last Wednesday, I was invited to a special tasting to see what new sandwich McDonalds was coming out with but couldn’t go. Don’t worry, it didn’t stop me from trying it anyway! Let me introduce the new…LOBSTER ROLL! The new lobster roll is available ONLY […]

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”

I love whiskey. I feel I need to get that out-of-the-way to start this. It’s my choice drink when I go out so it wasn’t going to be long before I checked out Yankee Distillers (5 Fairchild Square, Clifton Park). I’ve already purchased their Rye […]

It just so happens that there are a TON of food festivals this weekend and my plan is to hit all of them- all 3 that I know of anyway. The best part is that I haven’t been to any of them before so this […]

I had the idea for this post saved from last year because honestly, I didn’t really know what to write about it besides “Hey, this is a cool place, go to here!” Now that the weather is getting nicer and I find myself looking for […]

I had the opportunity in March to go to a demo for RAD Soap Co. at Whole Foods Market in Colonie Center. At the demo, I learned about how soap is made, how their company began and was lucky to get a bag of samples […]

I drink a fair amount of ramen noodles.

“College Jess” has always liked ramen when she was poor or drunk or a combination of the two. When I saw Tanpopo Ramen and Sake Cafe (893 Broadway, Albany), I couldn’t wait to have ramen made for me instead of heating it up in my microwave […]
