It seems like the perfect weather to get to Troy this weekend and enjoy the 2022 Chowderfest. Eighteen restaurants will be participating and it is free to attend. All you have to do is pay for samples.
There are two coffee shops of the same name in the Capital Region that have been around for decades. One is located on 3rd Street in Troy and the other is on Lark Street in Albany.

When you talk about an excellent barbeque in the Capital Region, many places come to mind. This particular barbeque is award-winning and will finally have a brick-and-mortar place to call home soon in Cohoes. They are known for their barbeque trailer that does fundraisers and pop-up dinners in our area. A couple of weeks ago they had a minor setback but they just announced some exciting news about an actual restaurant!
It was a fantastic weekend for country music with Luke Combs at MVP Arena in Albany for two nights on Friday and Saturday. Jimmie Allen headlined Frogtober Fest at Frog Alley in Schenectady on Saturday night. Why did Jimmie stop his show?
Rumors had been swirling for quite some time about Brick House Tavern & Tap closing and now it's official. But there are more rumors. It appears that there is a popular restaurant that may be moving into its location.

The old Friendly's that closed in 2011 and became Crispy Basil Artisan Pizza which also shuttered in 2016 will now become a new cafe and cocktails concept on Western Avenue in Albany. This unique picturesque spot will be called The Scene Coffee & Cocktails.
