Stayed there a few years back during the BMW Curve Cowboy Reunion, real upscale place. Good food and wine.

Huh, My cousin just moved to Troy. Until recently, I wasn't aware how big it was, or that it existed at all.

Question, before I head out... I've found a few upcoming wine festivals within a somewhat reasonable distance, but would a scheduled wine tasting do?

I'm ok with a SPECIAL SCHEDULED (i.e. not 'every Saturday' or some such) wine tasting.

I'm also good with a beer festival, bourbon festival, or other alcohol induced festivities.

The nearby one I'm thinking of *may* qualify, but it would be a pretty low-rent tag. I'll run for the real one tomorrow if this is still standing.

The photo doesn't show the post office. But the photo is a reasonable representation of the extent of Troy. In fairness, this is like twice as many porto-johns as normally reside in Troy.
