We're back (sort of) with some news about Downstreet Marketplace
Here's what I've got...
Downstreet Marketplace (you know, the two-level indoor shopping spot with entrances on Broadway and on Maple Ave.) has a new name: Saratoga Marketplace!
To go with their new name, they've got some new tenants: McGillycuddy's Naturals and The Body Lounge.
Some of your old favorites are still there including Betty's Cupcakes, Pangea, Lucia (a clothing boutique) and the newly-revamped Aggie Mullaney's (formerly just Aggie's).
Tomorrow (Saturday) is the perfect day to check out the changes at Saratoga Marketplace. From 3 to 5 p.m. a Skidmore a cappella group -- the Bandersnatchers -- will perform in the marketplace. This is part of the marketplace's Saturday Afternoon Music Series. On Saturday, April 30 that series will feature An Eclectic Afternoon of Strings — Cello and Guitar Music from Baroque to Blues, from 3 to 5 p.m. Will Hayes, a cellist originally from New York City, has performed in many venues in the Capital District, including the Saratoga City Center, Albany Institute of History and Art and, most recently, at the new Figure 10 Jazz Club in Albany. He is associated with the Schenectady Symphony Orchestra and is principal cellist with the University of Albany Symphony Orchestra.
Another feature coming soon to the marketplace is wifi.
Thank you for your patience while we try to keep this blog updated ... I promise we'll have more posts (and a new biz reporter) soon!
