A Blogger Send-off

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.

    Dan loves the hazlip eggs!
    Can’t wait to see you again at the Americanization party later this month!

    I think the “Hazlip Eggs” should be called the “Men’s Eggs” because, really, what woman wakes up in the morning wanting to eat sardines!?

    Now that I think about it, “Men’s Eggs” sounds kind of nasty, doesn’t it? I guess that’s why I don’t work in Marketing. Please forgive my crassness.

    I am partial to sardines any time of day. Maybe I really am a man….hum

    I would probably order something called men’s eggs. You go, Cati!

    So many fond memories of Albany. My visit to you, Alex, and then to you and Cati, and then to you, Cati and our little Nina. What joyous days I have spent there. I will miss Albany!

  6. Looks like you guys had a delicious blogger send-off party! I really have no excuse for not hitting MAD more often… that place has some seriously awesome breakfast. The last time I was there was with you, Alex, after one of our runs last year.

    BMG,
    Yeah, we think it’s pretty darn good. Oh, and they have a new special called “huevos haciendas” that will make your west coast lovin’ heart explotar. Don’t walk, ru…oh nevermind.
