A quick recap of the week

week review 2011-07-23

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

+ Soapbox: Murphy Daley, a golden retriever, gave us a dog's-eye view of Albany.

+ Katie asked about good stargazing spots.

+ Hannah took in all the "stuff" at Aunt Katie's Attic in Scotia.

+ @paintaneight Rob posted a map of outdoor water fountains (and it was definitely the right week for that).

+ Owney, Albany's famous postal dog, is getting his own stamp.

+ Stephanie shared a quick guide to summer theater festivals around the region.

+ Abby asked: Is it Capital Region or Capital District?

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: last days, Williamstown, the world as God made it, the word "Albany," Lake George, the Arlington House, Bootleggers, fungus, cherries, blueberries, Peerless Pool, and package reception.

+ The Troy Food Co-op is in financial trouble.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: why all those people park at the airport, spanking in the workplace, cliff jumping, and Albanyopoly.

+ We collected and mapped attacks on food delivery people over the last few years. One conclusion: you should tip the pizza guy more.

+ Pasquale's, two-time overall champ in the Tournament of Pizza, has been sold.

+ We talked with the founder of a local coworking space that's aiming to open this fall.

+ Albany is... kind of tan and blue.

+ And we were able to add a second screening at The Spectrum of Virgin Alexander, the indie comedy shot in Saratoga last summer (the first screening sold out). The screening's August 3 at 9 pm -- tickets are $9.25 (the regular price at the Spectrum).

What's All Over Albany?

All Over Albany is for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. In other words, it's for you. It's kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who can help you find out what's up. Oh, and our friends call us AOA.
