Otto choosing treats

This year, Otto is thankful for the wonderful AOA advertisers. And treats. He loves treats.

This week AOA was brought to you by good food, bad hair, bagels, caffeine, flu shots and mummies.

We were also brought to you by some great advertisers. Every week they help us bring you your Capital Region information fix, so if you get a chance, stop in and support them. Okay? Okay.

Got something to advertise on AOA? It's easy to do. Here's how.

This week AOA was made possible by:

+ Save 40% on art supplies and custom framing at Central Art Supply. Just print the coupon on their website.

+Bilinski's blueberry maple chicken little sausages go great with weekend pancakes.

+ Capital Repertory Theater just opened its new production of My Fair Lady.

+ There's all kinds of good stuff to round out your holiday table at Honest Weight Food Coop.

+ Stop by The Wine Bar and Bistro weeknights for their Wine After Work happy hour. $5 for house wines and $3 pints of beer. Check out the wine list and menu on their new website.

+ Stop by The Midtown Tap and Tea Room for lunch, dinner or drinks. They're still booking holiday cocktail parties.


Comments

I forget how freaking cute AOA Otto is until I see a photo of him. Now because I can't handle the cuteness my dog is getting mauled, er, I mean loved, a lot.

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.

... I think a competition would really help to open everyone's eyes to the real potential of the site. Too much time has been spent with typical, antiquated ideas. Let design professionals with new ideas have a crack at the site and you'll be amazed at it's potential.
