A Blogger Send-off

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Our blogging buddies threw us a little good-bye party.  We were flattered and had a really nice time.  The food was extraordinary.  We went to CCK.  Here are some photos:

Cati checks out another diner’s plate while Nina looks at the camera:

Peking duck– the best we’ve ever had.

Fried Eggplant:

Mushrooms and greens (front and center) and flounder (top left) after a go-round the table. 

Pork belly and mustard greens– the 8th deadly sin is pork belly (mmm mmmm). 

We had a great time and feel lucky to have such swell pals.  Thanks, good people of the internet. 

Unrelated– you must try the Eggs Haizlip at Miss Albany Diner.  Grits, eggs, and sardines in mustard sauce.  If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind breakfast, this is it.  Or maybe their Ugly Eggs– scrambled eggs with mushrooms and anchovies.  These dishes are not necessarily representative of the food there.  They also have a french toast that my wife cannot resist (no fish-products included).  We are going to struggle to find a place like this after we move. 

I also went to an Albany Patroons game with some friends for the first time this weekend.  What a fun time. 

Happy Valentine’s Day, lovebirds.

We’ll miss you, Albany.  We won’t forget how good you’ve been to us.
