Everyone loves Compton's ... and you're not too old for The Scene

The summer season sees the return of The Scene, a publication of The Saratogian that's separate from the print product. A new print version is distributed every other Wednesday at a number of locations in and around downtown Saratoga Springs, and the website is available for your enjoyment and comments at (and at in the entertainment dropdown).

The latest edition, which came out June 2, includes a feature on the crew that satisfies the 3 a.m. munchies at Compton's on Broadway. The popular breakfast and lunch place is hopping when most of us are into REM sleep. My favorite at Compton's, during normal brunch hours, is eggs over easy and a large OJ. But some days Bev McKim and I can't resist splitting a chocolate milkshake.

Upcoming editions of The Scene will include a story by and about Maggie Doherty, a Saratoga Springs High School grad who sings with Zach Rossi and is a journalism student at Hofstra. Other SSHS grads contributing to The Scene are Kathleen Ronayne, the incoming managing editor for the school newspaper at Syracue, and David Lombardo, whose other writing gigs include the legislative observer Statewatch and an "Entertainment Daily" blog.
