Too many signs that summer is coming to a close here in the Capital Region. Yesterday I closed my pool up for the season (always upsetting...leave it to me to close it on an 85 degree day). Also our local East Greenbush fast food joint, Gene's Fish Fry closed for the season last Friday. It always hurts a little to see the big "Gone Fishin'" sign on their door knowing they won't be back until next May. And now, Jumpin' Jacks in Scotia will be closing for the season on Saturday! They posted on their Facebook page that it was time to let their pre-graduate staff get ready to jump back into school, and their post graduate staff get ready to start their new job opportunities. So if you want your last taste of Jumpin' Jacks for this year, get there today, tomorrow or early Saturday, because also in that post they noted that menu items will run out on Saturday so it probably won't be a long day there. Thanks for the great food this summer Jumpin' Jacks, we'll see you next year!
