Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:
+ Jess told us about some fun headbands by local designer Casey Dwyer.
+ We talked with one of the New York State investigators who went undercover to bust black market sales of animals.
+ Eat this: the carnitas burrito bowl at Chipotle.
+ Jess told us about the virtual tattoo parlor built by a local company.
+ The DMV released the design for the new license plate -- and it seemed like everyone had a reaction.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: quality time with llamas, the humane society, hiking, odd German cakes, apple cider, the Troy Winter Market, potatoes, veggie burgers, a price cut, coupons, the flu and those people.
+ Kaitlin went shopping around the Capital Region for boots.
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: a lonely golfish, tickles, a beautiful girl on the bus, meddling kids, a guy wearing Crocs and a lobster that sings Elvis.
+ The vintage photo blog Shorpy featured a 104-year-old photo from the Capitol, which prompted us to look into the history of "the Million Dollar Staircase."
