A quick recap of the week

week in review

Here are some highlights from the past week on AOA:

+ The Trader Joe's counter-revolution has begun.

+ People in mascot costumes. Running. On a horse track.

+ Round Lake has a very big, very old pipe organ.

+ Eat this: raisin bread from Rock Hill.

+ We saw the Capital Region's newest ugly building.

+ Toward becoming a Saratoga know-it-all: the oldest sporting venue in the US, how Congress Park got its name.

+ Track season got off to a muddy start.

+ We got some crayons out at the Albany Art Room.

+ Do you know who painted these monkeys?

+ And the crowd has spoken... the new Melting Pot restaurant is worth a try.
