Food, and the culinary masters behind creating the meal, takes center stage at the 2015 Annual Saratoga Wine and Food Festival.
True story. My father was inviting some people from work to our house for a barbecue. He’d been in the office for awhile. We all just moved to Houston from the suburbs of New York City — sorry, New Jersey. He bough a gas grill to sit at the end of our backyard patio. This, I remember from what I retained as a 7-year-old.
Adam Duritz is having a great year. His New York Rangers made it to the Stanley Cup finals. His Oakland Raiders are improving after years of lackluster seasons. The Oakland A’s haven’t given him much to appreciate, except perhaps those days of the Bash Brothers, Dave Stewart starring down opposing hitters and Rickey Henderson swiping bases. The Golden State Warriors, however, made all the difference by winning the NBA title.

While working with people, I try to have them focus not on short-term goals. Notice, I didn’t say to neglect having a long-term goal.
The widow-making, production-killing, Dungeons & Dragons-eske imaginary pastime of Fantasy Football is here

Class began every summer afternoon on the ballfield at Bethlehem Central Middle School. The crunch of gravel underneath Jesse Braverman’s beat-up Ford Escort could be heard as he promptly rolled in at noon. He’d step out of the car with as many as 50 to 70 neighborhood kids already waiting for him. Instead of a syllabus, Braverman would pull out bags of helmets, bats and baseballs. It was the School of Baseball and class was now in session. In time, kids would simply call it “Jesse Ball.”
The gourmet concept to hamburgers is no longer new, not since French chef Daniel Boulud introduced a $27 burger back in 2001. But, the business model has been followed, tweaked and survived the Great Recession of a few years ago. Now, in 2015, it continues to trend stronger than what one business magazine prognosticated four years ago.
Third-generation owner Gregory Bennett Jackson celebrated the 100th anniversary of his family’s full-service home remodeling company, Bennett Contracting, Inc., by helping families in Albany’s South End build strong roots.
I first came across real estate developer Sonny Bonacio when covering a story at the Universal Preservation Hall, a 19th century church being converted into an entertainment venue. The structure itself had long suffered neglect, and now through the efforts of the community, of which Bonacio is a part of, it is promised to remain relevant to the city for years to come.
The thought of summer camp conjures up iconic images of swimming at the lake, or stories at the campfire, but that’s not what it’s about anymore.
