Unsung Eats: Valhalla, Adams — mythic taste, priced for mere mortals

The aptly named burger, "The Balder," bravely adorns itself with lettuce, roasted tomatoes, and onions, allowing it's brave flavors to shine through. Highly recommended side item? The hand cut wedge fries; photo by James Kennedy.

Here at Unsung Eats we usually have to search out the rare gems for great food at a good value but in this particular case the eatery found us.  We kept hearing, “Hey, have you tried Valhalla yet?” and when the Greylock Glass ran its Greylock Nation’s Greatest: 2019 readers poll, it was Valhalla Eatery in Adams that kept on popping up, so we knew who was going on the short list.

Experience building relationships key reason to vote Harrington for DA

To the editor,

Will experience decide the District Attorney race? I think it should—and that is why I support Andrea Harrington. Paul Caccaviello’s familiarity with “business as usual” at the Berkshire County DA’s office is precisely why I am not supporting him. The office of Capeless and Caccaviello has resisted change for too long, and it is doing Berkshire County a disservice.
