What's New In Glens Falls
The Adirondack Flames have recently announced their new mascot - and fans sure are happy about it! 'Dash' The Dalmatian debuted after the Flames' game last Wednesday during their 3-2 overtime win against Toronto.

For the last 3 months, the Adirondack Flames have been entertaining us with great hockey, but one thing has been missing: a mascot! Scorch was snuffed out in early October and since then the Flames have posted a winning record, but have done so without a costumed character cheering them on. With just four months left in the season, we decided to poll our Facebook Fans to get their thoughts on what the new mascot should be. The results are in and we received some very intriguing suggestions!

As you've probably noticed, Downtown Glens Falls is looking especially merry and bright this holiday season. Gone are the old, worn out decorations and in their place is a swarm of wreaths, boughs, and lights that has transformed the city into a picturesque winter scene. A team of elves from the Downtown Glens Falls Business Improvement District (BID) has worked tirelessly in conjunction with the city to perform this Christmas miracle made even more captivating by the recent snowfall.

From a financial standpoint, the holiday season can be one of the most stressful times of the year. There seems to be a never-ending list of gifts to buy, people you forgot you needed to buy for, and countless holiday parties that require you to look your best...not to mention the cost of holiday food items, decorations, and the list goes on. You've probably contemplated many different strategies for tightening your holiday budget - creative gift swaps, homemade gifts, re-using holiday outfits, not attending that party - but there's one strategy that can help you save without missing out: consignment shopping.

As the holiday season rapidly approaches, I'm becoming more and more aware of how old I feel. It has nothing to do with the birthday I just celebrated or the fact that I'm not in school anymore; instead, it has everything to do with my lack of excitement about receiving presents
Although temperatures lately have been mild, in just a few weeks it'll start feeling more like winter and we'll be forced to retreat indoors for entertainment. Luckily, there's a new attraction in the region that's sure to keep us occupied all winter long! Kingpin's Alley Family Fun Center in South Glens Falls recently opened its newly renovated game room, and man, does it look like fun!
