I would almost fly back to Albany to see Times New Viking. They are the toppest notch.

Great idea! I like the week ahead posts a lot; this should be another useful weekly feature.

Huh. I was at the print shop when the man was making up the posters for Times New Viking. Small worlds, etc.

But where else would it go? We need a roadway connecting those areas somewhere or else downtown businesses are doomed. Whats' the alternative, demolishing downtown to put a highway there?
