  • Albany

    Im going up to Albany in about 40 minutes from Central NJ. I can't wait to see some guys practice thy I'm intrigued about such as Will Hill and David Douglas and more. I'm just wondering if anyone can let me know of any good restaurants that are up there for me and my father to go to. I appreciate it.

    it will depend on what your looking for....On wolf rd there is every restaurant imaginable from McDonalds to red lobster......there are several right around campus that you may see some players at....sorry can't tell you ant specific names of those....finding a place to eat won't be a problem....Really depends on what type of meal you want

            wolf rd is like 15 mins from the campus just of rt 87....good luck....enjoy camp...can be a lot of fun.....if you get a chance try to catch the players going between the 2 main buildings for meeting....you can then see the whole team close up....they rope off a path just in front of where they sell gear....when you go to practice look for the field that has the cherry picker set up for the camera...that will be the main practice field that day...although the crowd will help too....unless you want to sit on ground lawn chairs are nice at times too....unless you have vip passes....which i did get once

              For a great deal, Delmonico's on Central Ave is the place to go. You can get a 24oz delmonico steak for about $20. If you want good BBQ, there's Capital Q on Ontario St and Dinosaur BBQ up in Troy (it's only a 20-25 minute drive from the campus). There's also a bunch of chains on Western Ave and a Fridays and a bunch of locally owned places in Stuyvesant Plaza. I haven't been there, but I hear Cafe Madison has a great breakfast (of course that's somewhere on Madison). Peaches Cafe in the Plaza does a good breakfast and lunch.

                Wolf Road is like 5 minutes from campus. All you need to do is exit the campus on Western Ave (or Fuller Rd and take that to Western) and hop on I-87N to exit 2E.

                To the OP, there's also a mall right there on Wolf Road called Colonie Center and then there's Crossgates Mall, which you can get to by heading west on either Western or Washington Ave.

                      Yeah, this is true. If you try heading out to Wolf Rd anytime during rush hour it'll take longer than 5 minutes, lol.

                      Well, I'm from the Albany area, so I know it fairly well, though I have lost touch with a lot of the restaurants in Albany. My wife has a food allergy, so she gets nervous going new places.

                      Here's a link to the area's alt-newsweekly. They do restaurant reviews and the such, plus list the things going on in town such as music, etc... They should have a dining guide somewhere on the page, too. http://metroland.net/

                              I'm going this Monday. I was wondering if there were any rules about what you can bring into the camp? I was thinking of bringing in a cooler w/some food and perhaps some beer. What's allowed?
