A Table With A View

“A Table With a View” is a new feature in The Albany Herald. What we do is invite someone interesting from the community out to lunch. The person who is interviewed chooses the place. We record the lunch conversation and share what we talked about with our readers — that’s the view part. We also include a menu of what we had for lunch and the cost. We plan for this to be a twice-monthly feature in our SouthView section. If you have a suggestion for someone you might want to “share lunch” with, give us a call at the newsroom (229-888-9344) or email us at southview@albanyherald.com.
