Rainbows: free. AOA: also free. Sort of.

The best things in life are free -- including AOA.

Well, sort of.

This week your AOA fix is made possible by pizza, plastic bags, goats, falling temperatures and some really nice advertisers. Check them out, they've got some good stuff going on. The advertisers, not the goats. Goats are great too but they don't have much going on... OK we seem to have wandered off the track a bit.

Here are the folks that made AOA possible this week:

The Wine Bar and Bistro on Lark's "Wine After Work" happy hour starts on October 26th. They'll have $5  house wine and 3$ pints of beer. Check out their Zipang Sparkling Sake tasting on the 27th.

Giorgio's salon on Johnson Road in Latham is offering a free Goldwell serum treatment with every color when you tell them you saw them on AOA.

The Honest Weight Food Coop's Local Harvest Fest is coming up on Sunday October 25 in Albany's Washington Park. Music from Sgt. Dunbar, Sara Pedinotti and more. Local food and a chef's challenge.

The Midtown Tap and Tea room with yummy lunches like pierogi and Cubana Sandwiches. They're booking holiday parties now.

The Albany All Stars Roller Derby's Devil's Rejects will take on the compilation team (skaters from Rochester, Utica, and Wilkes-Barre), the Midnight Stalkers on Saturday night at The Washington Avenue Armory. There's a costume contest for kids and adults. A portion of the event proceeds from the bout will benefit The Albany County Crime Victims and Sexual Violence Center.

Sunmark Federal Credit Union is holding online defensive driving courses that can help you save up to 10% on your auto insurance.

The Albany Jewish Community Center has a really nice gym and 30% off memberships from Nov. 8-13th.

The Aids Council of Northeastern New York's Beaujolais Nouveau
event is November 19th, but tickets are on sale now. Sampling tables from New World Bistro Bar, Glen Sanders Mansion, Old Daily Inn, Vin Santo's Wine Bar and more than a dozen other local restaurants.

Capital Rep, showing "The Seafarer" through November 1st.

Bilinski chicken sausage, made in Cohoes, has a great deal going on right now when you buy them at Price Chopper: two packages for $7.

Stop in and see them. And tell them AOA sent you.

Want to advertise on AOA? Here's how.

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.
