We spent the weekend in the Coxsackie, NY, area. It's about 20 miles south of Albany, but you'd never know it from looking around. And I have to use that "area" there, because the wedding was in West Coxsackie, the reception was in Coxsackie, and I'm still not sure whether the hotel was in West Coxsackie or New Baltimore.
The hotel gave us a sheet with some dinner recommendations, and we did some research.
So I opened my phone's
We wound up at
There were no tips for anywhere local, and, let's face it, there were about 2 people listed as mayor of anywhere in town, but we enjoyed Paul's. JB had a bowl of clam chowder (that's clams in a cream broth with onions and potatoes, not tomato soup with clams in it) and spaghetti with meat sauce. I had a bowl of sausage chowder (corn, potatoes and onions with the sausage) and a white veggie pizza, which was mozzarella and ricotta cheeses with spinach, mushrooms, broccoli, tomatoes, onions and green pepper, all fresh.
I said a while back that I wound up not really being a fan of Foursquare. My attitude might be changing now that I understand how to use it. Which makes sense. I tell people they need to have a goal with Twitter if they expect to enjoy it; I guess I've needed that with Foursquare, too. More to come as I grow with the tool.
