I’m getting the sense that people are starting to feel a little bit antsy about exactly what the heck they’re doing for February break, so I’m going to try to publish a list on that a little earlier than I’d originally planned–I’ll probably just try to compile the weekend events and the week events at … [Read more…]
I love our neighborhood. It’s not just that we can walk to schools and businesses or that the trees stretch over the streets to make those beautiful dappled-green tunnels in the summertime. Although, you know, that’s all awesome. It’s our freakishly wonderful neighbors. Would you believe that in the last month each of my next-door … [Read more…]
Okay, so one item that I missed in the weekend round-up is that kids are invited to paint eggs from Cooper’s Ark Farm at the Schenectady Greenmarket this Sunday.
