A quick recap of the week

week review 2010-05-22

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

+ Jess visited the One of a Kind Teahouse in the Chinatown building on Central Ave.

+ Matthew S asked about misconceptions about the Capital Region.

+ Meg asked for seamstress suggestions.

+ LS's mom provided some much-needed perspective on New York's probable next First Lady-friend.

+ Sushi, sushi, sushi. There's a new sushi place opening at Stuyvesant Plaza -- and that prompted us to ask the question: how much sushi is too much?

+ Matthew finished the song he wrote based on suggestions from the AOA crowd!

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: bus frustration, parking meters, roller derby lessons, garage sales, sandwich marriage, morels, takeout, rabbit, burgers, weekends, roving landmarks, stars, the Greek festival and a wall.

+ Kalyn talked with the organizers of the Awesomely Adult Prom.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: Greek tragedy, geek-fu, a player piano and holding it like it's your job.

+ An indie movie is shooting in Saratoga this summer.

+ It appears that Troy artist Jess Fink may have had her work "borrowed." Again.

+ Kaitlin checked out Twilight Vintage Clothing in Troy.

+ And Sebastien sent along photos from the Workforce Team Challenge.

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

What's All Over Albany?
