Greetings From Schenectady!

Hello from New York, everyone! After rolling into town late Wednesday night while accompanying my friend Troy here for a work function he’s participating in, I’m going to be hanging around town (and if you’re having trouble pronouncing the name- no worries- I definitely am too!) and parts of Albany throughout this coming weekend. I’m […]

The September Chronicles…

It really is the greatest time of the year here in New England- and I have been having a blast these past couple of weeks! Football is back (Go Bucs!), the leaves are just starting to change color a little bit- and it’s finally and consistently cool/comfortable outside! Although I still haven’t broken out my […]

Local Loves: Saw Dust Coffee House & Dessert Bar

One of my favorite things to do on rainy, semi-chilly early-to-mid Autumn days off (much like today, coincidentally enough! It’s such a relief following the most recent heat wave!) is stop to get a hot coffee and warm up in the comforts of a cozy coffee shop/café. The more rustic and independent, the better- since […]

“There’s Black Jack and Poker and the Roulette Wheel…”

San […]

The first time I ever came into this retro, colorful blast-from-the-past restaurant and bar […]

“Through the Looking-Glass…”

One of the things I had included in my Summer 2022 “Must Visit/See” list was a trip to The Alice in NYC- an immersive, ‘Alice in Wonderland’-themed cocktail bar on Amsterdam Avenue that I had seen advertised, more than likely in the middle of the night, and sleepily said to myself: “oh yeah, I’d do […]

Local Loves: Captain T’s

Is it truly Summer in New England if I haven’t had some fried clam strips? The short answer is no, no it isn’t- and given that we’re approaching the end of July- I wanted to rectify that by checking out a newer local seafood spot that recently opened up in Barre, Massachusetts. Captain T’s sits […]
