In addition to jewelry appraisal and repair, the shop carries a vast array of diamond wedding rings, vintage and antique jewelry, and more.
Part on-site landscaping business, part eclectic nursery, Magic Gardens has a healthy selection of common and exotic plants, a large selection of flowering plants and locals, and frequent classes and events. Their landscaping department provides full-service design, and custom stonework and masonry.
This Uptown bar is inviting but not desperate; trendy without trying too hard; relaxed but not lazy — a rec room with the metaphorical volume turned up to eleven (the actual volume, by the way, is nicely not too loud — except on weekends). The cocktail list, which was masterminded by Caroline Pagel of Sea Salt, manages to be both decently priced ($6 during happy hour, which runs 4-6 p.m. weekdays, or $8 regularly), and, by and large, unfussy and delicious (try the garden gimlet.) Big bonus: bocce ball!
With new and vintage clothing at low prices.
Sells new and rebuilt bikes, accessories, apparel, and other items, and does repairs and custom orders.
Boasts two floors of vintage clothing, from flannels and ironic T-shirts to shoes and old lady sweaters, organized by era and/or style and sold at a $20 median price.
This is a great place to watch the game, whether that means standard bar fare like football and baseball or European favorites like soccer (aka football) or rugby. McNally’s attracts young and old, and the appeal goes beyond whatever is on the four TVs. Friendly bartenders serve reasonably priced drinks, there’s a digital jukebox that isn’t too loud to drown out conversation, plus bumper pool, a stone fireplace, and a nice smoking area.
Recent renovations at this Albany cocktail bar have rendered the atmosphere reminiscent of a 1960s-era Las Vegas lounge, but five flat-screen TVs and weekly Wii tournaments give it a modern-day boost. Stop by on Thursday through Saturday for karaoke, and come on Wednesdays for free hot dogs.
