This week was brought to you by snow, zombies, some great music and a splash of wine product -- none of which you would have known about without AOA advertisers like Paul and Caroline at Our Daily Eats. In addition to unique nuts, seeds and granola, they're now producing Fresh Basil Pesto. It's all made with care in the Hudson Valley.
If you've got something to advertise, AOA is a great way to get the word out. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get you started.
