“Keep Calm and Rock it Like a Redhead”

“Keep Calm and Rock it Like a Redhead”

I wrote about the League of Extraordinary Redheads a week ago and how excited I was to go to this meet-up. I was really surprised by the amount of press a room full of redheads get. I apparently showed up after the news channels had […]

Heston Blumenthal EDIT: Joe’s Crab Shack is now closed. I usually shy away from chain locations in the Capital Region because I’d much rather you try something new that’s local and can only find here than a franchise that you could get anywhere. Joe’s Crab […]

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 […]
