It’s a challenge for me to wrap my head around the raw fish competent of sushi, primarily because I feel paranoid about food poisoning, regardless of the quality of the restaurant. Some people live and breath sushi. Although I am not one of those people, I do enjoy the occasional roll. My aversion to raw fish would…

When Did “Brunching” Become A Verb?
At some point, what was once a word to describe a meal that combined breakfast and lunch, became a verb used across twenty-something’s everywhere to describe an afternoon of indulging in comfort food and day drinking. Although I’d hate to admit the term brunching is part of my vernacular, I am quite fond of the…
Feeling Fancy at Yono’s
There really is no such thing as normal. But dining at Yono’s is certainly an experience far grander than just a “normal” night out. It is without a doubt fine dining, where your water glass is never empty and your utensils are changed out with every course. But what makes a dinner at Yono’s truly…
Here For A Good Time: A Look At Slider Slam 2018

Uncovering The Hidden Coffee Gems
It’s no secret that I love coffee. It’s a love story that I began to tell here, but like most love stories, there are many layers.

An Afternoon On Lark Street
Cobblestone mixed along the smooth pavement marks Lark Street in Albany. On Saturday afternoon, the street is buzzing with people walking past the lit up facades of bars and restaurants, looking to get a taste of Lark. The cars pass by and as the lights change from green to red, I cross the street for…
Capital Region Spotlight: Albany
You know what they say, you never really know what you’ve got until it’s gone. I never really knew what I had until I left our beloved capital city. But now I am back and can say with confidence that despite the fact that Albany may be small, it’s a great place to live.
But Is It Doughnut or Donut?
They come in sugar or glazed or chocolate sprinkle, freshly made with a side of apple cider, or even with a scoop of ice cream in between. Technically, it’s spelled doughnut, and it’s one of the most popular pastries out there right now.
Spring Brings Restaurant Week To Albany

The Love Of Food: Ama Cocina
Mexican food is never not an option for me. Just last week I had mexican for dinner 3 out of 7 nights of the week and honestly I am not upset by it one bit! After wanting to try Ama Cocina for months, I finally got the chance to stop in.
Brunch Round Up: Winter ’17
Brunch is always, always, always a good idea.
Getting Locally Caffeinated
Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time (and money) at Starbucks. I spend most of my day scavenging LinkedIn for jobs and editing cover letter after cover letter, so I like to get out of my house and embrace the application process over a caffeinated beverage. After reading a recent Times Union Article about some new…
