A quick recap of the week

week review 2010-05-29

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

+ Shock of all shocks: Andrew Cuomo is running for governor. A speed read of the reaction.

+ Emily partook in the experience that is bacon hot chocolate.

+ Jess told us about Scooter Pie at Midnight's rock n' roll burlesque.

+ Jason sent along photos from the Phantogram show at Northern Lights.

+ Laura asked about finding a good doctor -- and there a bunch of good suggestions.

+ Shake Shack to the coming to the Saratoga Race Course.

+ It's hot -- but the pools aren't open just yet.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: parking meters, dog boarding, Neil Young, The Epicurean, quantity over quality, lobster mac, blue ribbons, pie, a vegan-friendly city, cupcakes, curry, seeds, public bathrooms, tweetup crashing, Karner Blues, unexpected rainbows and the Smoke Monster.

+ Chris asked about finding good theater in the Capital Region.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: the worst way to spend a summer, an unusual request for a wedding witness and... Pez.

+ We talked with the directors of the indie film that's shooting in Saratoga this summer.

+ Sebastien has a photo exhibit.

+ The parks -- including Thacher -- opened.

+ And fire trucks have come a long way since 1901.
