Here's something coming up that might be fun: there are going to be commuting cruises on the Hudson between Troy and Albany on May 13.
Details from Duncan Crary, who's organizing the cruise with Dutch Apple:
Passengers will receive complimentary newspapers and a light breakfast offering on the morning cruise. The after-work cruise will feature live music by the Clarinet Marmalade (a trio of members from the Skip Parsons Riverboat Jazz Band), complimentary finger foods and a cash bar.
Trolley service will be available in both cities to shuttle passengers to select downtown locations, courtesy of the City of Troy and The Albany Aqua Ducks & Trolleys.
We hear that the Albany Rickshaw guy will also be there in case anyone wants to hire him.
Tickets are $25 roundtrip, $15 one-way. (If Salt is still shooting here that day, Duncan says he'll comp Jennifer Anniston a ticket.) The trip will take 40 minutes.

The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
