Update: The drawing is now closed.
Congratulations, Joe Fusco!

The people promoting Steve Martin's appearance at The Palace this Wednesday offered us two tickets to give away. We like Steve Martin. We figure you like Steve Martin. So we said, sure, let's go for it.

To enter the drawing, please submit a comment answering this question:

What's wild and crazy?

We'll draw one winner at random from the comments.

The aptly-titled "An Evening with Steve Martin" starts at 8 pm at The Palace Wednesday night. WAMC's Joe Donahue will be hosting the evening, asking Martin questions -- both his own and those from the audience. Tickets for the event start at $45.75.

Important: All comments must be submitted by 10:00 pm Monday (March 28, 2011) to be entered in the drawing. One entry per person, please. You must enter a valid email address (that you check regularly) with your comment. The winner will be notified via email by 10 am on Tuesday (March 29, 2011) and must respond by 7 pm that day.

The Palace advertises on AOA.

The stock market!

My hair this morning.

New York winters!

Listening to Man Man all Monday morning!

Wild and crazy for me is standing in nice warm rain and watch the expressions of people as they pass covering the heads so the don't get wet. I always try to tell them that it's only water. It will dry. I also mention that it could be worse, it could be little pea stones on larger rocks. It's only water.


my ex....

City of Albany

If Charlie Sheen had been at Albany's "Kegs and Eggs"....

My misspent youth.

A 41 year old guy chaining himself to a fountain!!!

my jealousy to the Mega Millions winners

Can't wait for truly Spring weather...some warmth in the air to go with the sun.

I went to sleep at 4 am last night, and I woke up at 8. I am wild and crazy. And tired.

My mom!

What's wild and crazy: the amazing new businesses opening up on Quail Street (Sun Spot Cafe, All Good Bakers, Hudson River Coffee House). I hope more will follow, helping the student ghetto transform into a place that is actually fun and interesting!

Me, in my younger days

My coworkers. Some in a good way and one in a very bad way!

Fountain Day years past, but not this year alas....also that VCU has made it to the final four!

My reaction to winning Steve Martin tickets!

The rent is TOO DAMN high!

Butler and VCU in the final 4.

that a budget agreement was made at all, let alone early.

Well, excuuuuuse me!

I think it's wild and crazy the way I have to drive to avoid the pot holes around areas in Albany and Schenectady! Swerving is becoming an art form or a strange strategic game that sometimes has NO way of winning. O_o

Being responsible for attempting to shape the future for 4 human beings!

The dude who chained himself to the UAlbany fountain.

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.
