Mohawk Valley Today places to go

We had a great week beginning with photos at the The Café at Stone Mill and Canal Side Inn both located in Canal Place in Little Falls. Also on our list was taking photos at Retro Ruby’s Photography on N. Main Street in Herkimer. Taking photos here was a ton of fun as there are some really awesome sets and photo props that just made our time there a blast.

A Biologist, English Professor, & Psychologist Walk Into a Bar…

This One City, One Book event, was one that we didn’t want to miss! We arrived early and enjoyed a very nice meal at Ruggiero’s Trattoria. Once the event started, everyone knew they were in for a treat. Ruggiero’s hosted a great crowd and we were happy to gather with friends while discovering more about the book and each other.

Out and About in St. Johnsville, Canajoharie, & Fort Plain

Starting on Route 5, we headed to St. Johnsville for Parkside Drive Inn. We were so happy about Parkside’s season opening and couldn’t pass up their signature salad. On to Canajoharie, we had an opportunity to talk with Dorine about Picture Perfect Fine Art Gallery and how they do on-site framing at their location on Erie Blvd.

On Canal Street in Fort Plain

Chef Aaron’s garlic and cheddar grits with sautéed mushroom and spinach.
The mushrooms include shiitake, oyster and beech mushrooms, for a delicious vegetarian dish.

In Fort Plain, we stopped in to say “Hi!” to Rebecca at Highwheeler Coffee and were thrilled to be able to chat over the best freshly ground coffee that just hit the spot. While there, we had a chance to talk with Chef Aaron at The Table at Fort Plain. Chef Aaron and his team are already planning for Mother’s Day. Chef Aaron shared with us about how people throughout the Mohawk Valley go to The Table as a destination. Because Fort Plain is midway between Albany and Utica, many travel to The Table at Fort Plain to meet with friends and family while enjoying a delicious meal made from the best locally sourced ingredients.

We’re out and about every week and look forward to meeting you in our travels through the Mohawk Valley.

Think Local Little Falls and Main Street First

This past week we attended the Think Local Little Falls and Main Street First meetings which included meeting visitors from the Friends of St. Johnsville. Both meetings were great with an emphasis on the year’s upcoming activities and events. Think Local Little Falls has lots planned for February’s Third Thursday, so be sure to check out the events page.

While in Little Falls…

We also visited That Little Place on Main where folks were enjoying lunches and we were savoring the sausage soup that really hit the spot. While at Rochette in the 410 Collective we checked out new items and displays while Huckleberry Letterpress was busy making pencils.

Little Falls Historical Society Museum

We also spent some time at the Little Falls Historical Society Museum where members were busy working on new exhibits, archiving and so much more. Together, we added new events and news items to their website. A lot is planned for the upcoming season including new exhibits and an expanded Sports Wing. We’re really looking forward to the museum’s opening in May.

In Fort Plain…

On Valentines Day, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner complete with a delicious dessert at The Table at Fort Plain. We really enjoyed the evening and seeing everyone at The Table.

Yesterday, we stopped in at Highwheeler Coffee for a couple of Chai Lattes and enjoyed chatting with folks on our way to Amsterdam.
