As promised, here's a ton of photos from the AOA's 4th birthday party last week at the City Beer Hall. Many thanks to Andy Kainz for capturing so many good moments.

We had an excellent time at the party. The City Beer Hall did a great job with the food. And we feel very lucky that so many interesting and fun people helped us celebrate.

On to the photos...

Beautiful photos! Everyone looks so great, and that was an amazing setting. So sorry I had to miss out. Thanks for sharing!

Looks like it was a heck of a time. Too bad both my girlfriend and I received invites and both of us got put on a wait list. That's really lame.

AOA Greg: We're sorry it didn't work out. I wanted to check where you fell on the wait list, and whether you were one of the many people on the wait list who had spots released to them and didn't respond, so we could discuss what happened directly over email. But you commented using a fake email address. If you'd like to follow up, please email me: greg |at| alloveralbany |dot| com.

Very sad to miss this. I raised a glass from here on the left coast.

Wow, anyone there not white?

Thanks for a great time, you guys are the best!

Wow, I look even more like a yuppie than usual.

I know that I really should just embrace it and not try to fight it anymore, but it still stuns me a bit every time ...

Spotted two people I know AND some diversity. Even so, can we get a race, religion, age, sexual orientation, political affiliation, Peeta/Gale stance breakdown on all attendees for transparency's sake?

I'm kidding. PEETA.

Sorry I couldn't make it this year. Having the same bday as AOA creates availability issues.

Four? Wow, time flies! Happy Birthday AOA!

Great pics - and what a great location for a birthday party too!

@irisira: Most of Albany in general is made up of a hipster-yuppie demographic. I think AOA parties are a good representation of that cross-section. A lot of people dislike Albany because of this demographic, and that's OK, because not every place in America is for everyone. Get over yourself.

Aww shucks. So wanted to go, and it looked like a great time. Next year for the big 5!

Oh, it's you again, back for your once a year disparaging comment. I hope you've been well. See you again next year, and with any luck perhaps you'll be a less miserable human being. Doubtful, but then again, who wants to live in a world without hope?

Everyone take a deep breath. I don't want to have to pull this comment thread over to the side of the road. Then no one gets cupcakes! ; )

Say Something!

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. Thanks for being patient.

I'm glad to see people involved in community decisions. But at the same time, we can't just keep saying we want development "somewhere else" or "not in my backyard!". Having mini-suburbs in the city of Albany was feasible at one point in time, and now development is catching up. ...
