In a perfect world, pixels and puppy chow would just grow on trees. But they don't. Yet.
So, while the AOA scientists work on that plan, our advertisers have stepped up to fill the gap.

This week AOA was brought to you by:

The Wine Bar and Bistro on Lark. The asparagus soup is our favorite, but check out the new items like the Cassoulet with Confit Chicken, Garlic Sausage, Applewood Smoked Bacon, and White Bean Stew served with Roast Garlic Crostini or the Sweet Potato, Parsnip, Leek and Gruyere Cheese Tart with Baby Spinach, Belgian Endive, and Radicchio Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette.

UAlbany is open to the public for Community Day on Saturday. You can check out all kinds of demonstrations, lectures, take part in a virtual exchange with France and get tours of the art museum and weather center. Free.

The Albany All Stars are recruiting now. Their next bout is October 17th.

The Honest Weight Food Co-op has 17 different varieties of apples right now and all kinds of amazing cheeses. Stop in and try the new French Brie, L'edel De Cleron.

Giorgio's Salon on Johnson Road in Latham is offering a free hair serum treatment with every color.

The Midtown Tap and Tea Room on New Scotland Avenue is open for lunch (try the pirogi) and has live jazz every weekend.

Capital Rep's new show, "The Sea Farer," opens this weekend. On Monday they're doing a staged reading of "The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, an Epilogue."

Stop in and check them out, they've got some good stuff going on. And tell them AOA sent you.

I'm waiting until HWFC gets their collie-flavored pumpkins in stock.

She can trick or treat at my house!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. 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. Thanks for being patient.

What's All Over Albany?

All Over Albany is for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. In other words, it's for you. It's kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who can help you find out what's up. Oh, and our friends call us AOA.
