Yesterday my friends and I went on a delicious Schenectadian adventure; we explored the Schenectady Greenmarket then lunched at the 37th Annual Greek Festival hosted by St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church in downtown Schenectady. Both events were located around the Schenectady City Hall (a super easy walk from the South-West corner of campus) and just so much fun! The Schenectady Greenmarket takes place every Sunday from 10am to 2pm and offers goodies ranging from lovely lavender lemonade to beautiful beeswax candles. The Greek Fest was a 3-day event, but I so wish it happened more often than just once a year! Between the fabulous food, dazzling dancing, and friendly faces, the event certainly highlighted some of the awesome aspects of Schenectady!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
