McGreivey's Beefsteak Dark Horse Beer Dinner

Last week marked the second annual Dark Horse Beefsteak Dinner at McGreivey’s. This laid back beer dinner hasn’t changed much from last year’s event, which is a good thing. The seat price is an absolute steal considering the amount of food, including all…

Sneak Peek: The Shop | Troy, NY

Hudson Whiskey & Rye Beer at Henry Street Taproom

Tuesday may have kicked off Saratoga Beer Week but at that night’s Hudson Whiskey & Rye Beer event, the whiskey stole the show. Ryan and Sonja McFadden of Henry Street hosted us while Ralph Erenzo from Tuthilltown Spirits led us through a series of Hudson…

Artisanal Beer Dinner at @TheCityBeerHall | Albany, NY

On Monday night a whole slew of friends braved the impending “storm” to head out to The City Beer Hall’s Artisanal Beer Dinner (you can check out fellow blogger Kim’s post on dinner here). The storm that night ended up being a dud, but thankfully Chef…

In light of Row 34 grabbing some national attention in the news due to the bombshell article dropped about Jim Koch earlier this week, I figured it was a good time to share a few snaps from my experience there a couple of weeks ago. Not gonna get too…

Sneak Peek at @NibbleInc

Last night I got the chance to check out the new Nibble Inc. opening up in the old Francesca’s location on Broadway in Troy. I’ll fully admit, I’m not a huge doughnut guy. I’ll totally go for a plateful of corned beef hash and eggs benedict before I’ll…

Literally the worst bagel I've had. Heavy, dense bagel with no airness/fluffiness. Almost like a day or two old bagel.

Traded in my aging Audi for a super fuel-efficient TDI. Worked with Josh and the rest of the gang to get the perfect Jetta SportWagen with the right options at the monthly payment I was looking for. 6 months later we traded in the Equinox and purchased another VW from Josh, this time a Passat! No problems with the 10K or 20K services for the Jetta, and the 30K is just around the corner. Nothing but the best service from Nemer!

Best tap selection and wings in the capital region without a doubt.
