Stuck doing something else this past weekend? Out of town? Having fun some other way?
Here are a few of the sights and sounds from this past weekend -- you know, sort of like a virtual weekend.
Sebastien's posted a buzzed, one-handed photoset from the packed Oktoberfest on Broadway outside Wolff's Saturday in Albany. He writes on his site:
Is Wolff's Oktoberfest stomping on LarkFEST? Matt Baumgartner's German love child turned one last Saturday, and boy did he get much much bigger. The 2009 edition was a resounding success, but I guesstimated at least 3 times more people showed up this year to engulf a record-breaking amount of beer and sausage. Best of all, everybody seem pretty well behaved, I saw more obnoxious drunks the week before on Lark. Victim of its success, the event experienced a few issues to cope with the sheer demand for alcohol and Porta-Potties. Bringing an estimated 7,000 people together, Matt and his hard-working army should be commanded for yet another great opportunity to enjoy Albany.
He also had what sounded like a near-religious experience some sort of fried dough product.
Janelle Monae at Skidmore
Janelle Monae, the genre-mixing hip-hop/R&B/soul singer, played at Skidmore Friday night with Eli "Paperboy" Reed. Video of the encore -- and "oof" stage dive -- from YouTube user icypuppy88:
Nippertown Greg was something less than impressed.
Water, water, water
After more than inches of rain dropped on the Capital Region toward the end of last week, The Exiles decided it was a good time to check out the Cohoes Falls. It was quite a sight.
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.
