Sell Out Sunday – SOS For Short
Today is probably a day of recovery. There is a lot to recover from yesterday. Even if you didn’t participate in both the derby and Cinco de Mayo celebrations, you may have braved the lines of Free Comic Book Day, or spent too much time in the sun at the Troy Farmers Market.
I had planned to shop there and pick up some early spring goodies, but Albany Jane convinced me to go to the Menands Market, which would have been good if you were considering planting a garden and needed cuttings. It was less good for someone who was looking for food.
But spending time with my fellow food writers never fails to produce fodder for future features.
Anyhow, this week I only have one official press release to share. I don’t want to ruin the surprise, but it’s from Price Chopper. However, to try and bring some balance to the post, I’ve also highlighted some upcoming events at the Niskayuna ShopRite. Soon I’ll wrap my head around the programs on deck in Albany. The final blurb is an update on an event I mentioned last week. It’s sold out, but there is still one way to attend: all you need is a lot of good taste and a little bit of luck.
