Recently in Fun Stuff Category

The weather is frigid, and most of us are already daydreaming about July sunshine, sandals and sunscreen. While our puffy jackets, wool sweaters and infinity scarves are doing relatively well keeping us warm this winter in Saratoga, there really is nothing quite like a hot cup of joe to warm you up from the inside out. We've compiled our Favorite 5 Cafes To Help You Survive The Saratoga Winter - so keep calm, and drink up!

We all know Saratoga Springs is a beautiful place to live, with its bustling downtown, genuine people and historic beauty. Recently, Saratoga was recognized for another reason - a new study from SmartAsset ranked the "10 Best Places to Retire in New York," and Saratoga not only made the cut, but actually ranked in at 2nd place! 
As the winter season chills our bones and makes us want to stay inside all day, there really is only one solution to our winter blues: food. As a resident of Saratoga, I understand the amazingness that is Saratoga dining - with the variety, the quality and the service being nothing but top notch. Every year, Saratoga.com conducts the Fab Five Awards, asking locals and visitors for all of their favorite parts of Saratoga. We've decided to put a little twist on the awards, and give you the Top 5 Dishes To Try This Winter, all from our Fab Five Award winners. Enjoy, and prepare to start salivating.

His magic has made it to the big leagues! The Saratoga Magician, 23-year-old Steven Brundage, has made it big after landing a feature on Good Morning America this morning.

Whoever says they don't believe in magic... they haven't met Steven Brundage. The 23-year-old magician, who is known for his talents locally in and around Saratoga, has made it big.

If you're from 'toga, you know how great the local food is.

Back in May, we announced that Saratoga Springs had made Movoto's list of the 10 Best Places in New York. While we were very happy about Saratoga's inclusion in this list, our own editor Destiny Malone made known her displeasure regarding Saratoga's ranking - tied for 10th. Fear not, Destiny! We're happy to report that Movoto has compiled another list, this time of the Best Small Cities In New York, and Saratoga Springs has jumped up to 4th place!

Maestro's Restaurant of Saratoga will now be serving their dinner at the The Saratoga Winery EVERY Friday night. Can you say - Friday night bliss?
