A quick recap of the week

week review 2010-05-08

Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:

+ Kalyn talked with a guy who's trying to help bikes and cars get along.

+ @woodzepper sent along photos of the circus elephants walking through downtown Albany.

+ We talked Rich Nimmo -- he and his wife have opened a winery in Saratoga.

+ We heard about a really Fantastick marriage proposal in Clifton Park. And then talked with the happy couple about how it came about.

+ Via Patrick came this video profile of local DJ duo Deep Children.

+ Some GE scientists in Niskayuna want to take it real slowww.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: used cars, closing time, TNO, artisan bread, La Serre, Restaurant Week, really good french toast, pork, excellent service, productive worms, a broken clock and zombies.

+ Paul sent along some great tulip photos.

+ The neighborhood rallied around the fire-damaged Lark Tavern.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: unfinished issues, a poser boy, unfrozen french fries, and All About Albany.

+ A TU article highlighted a bunch of allegations against Ward Stone. He later responded in multiple outlets.

+ Joe Bruno was sentenced to two years in prison (pending a ruling from the Supreme Court). Here's a speed read of the coverage.

+ We're looking forward to the song Matthew Carefully is writing based on suggestions from the AOA crowd.

+ And we ate a deep-fried Twinkie.

Thanks to everyone who posted a comment or sent along an idea or photo this week!
