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

+ Sgt Dunbar's Alex Muro was this week's My Exit person.

+ People lined up for tickets to the Salt premiere at the Palace. (Thanks, Mike!)

+ Kalyn talked with local artist Scott Hotaling about this "snapshot" paintings.

+ Summer asked about fun softball leagues.

+ Lou checked out the new location for Dnipro, the eastern European market, in Colonie.

+ Sue asked about where she could get her car de-dogged.

+ NY City Bus still cheap -- just not as cheap. (It's also starting a Saratoga pickup.)

+ Stephanie asked about finding fried pickles.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: soft serve, pupusas, summer cake, menus, lamb, eating outside, Chelsea Handler, roller coasters, DJs, the Boilermaker, British comfort food, a caterpillar, and a lucky penny.

+ The Old Spice Man loves Lisa.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: Doritos in the stacks, a Kiwi, an arresting officer and a fire hydrant.

+ Hannaford says it will eventually only sell sustainable seafood.

+ The Albany Police Department released an intense video from the fatal Quail/Spring Street shooting in February.

+ The Capital Region's unemployment rate in June was better than the same month last year.

+ It's summer fair season! Here's a list of Capital Region fairs.

+ Andrew Cuomo's piling up a big lead.

+ Balance!
