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

+ We got the scoop on whether those milk cartons with the plastic spout are recyclable or not.

+ Daniel says you should try the Nature's Place rotisserie chicken at Hannaford (and follow his heating instructions).

+ Ned asked about where to buy vintage (and whimsical) cuff links. (We're still looking for a few answers on this one.)

+ A startup brewing company has proposed turning the former St. Joseph's Church in Albany's Ten Broeck Triangle into a brewery. It prompted some good discussion.

+ We gave away tickets to the wild game dinner at The City Beer Hall June 14 by asking people: What's something wild about the Capital Region?

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: bullying, the Approach, seafood, powerful women, baby animals, a secret pond, radish-induced memories, whacky things, an insect lollipop, Mountain Jam, Burlington, Bennington, the Adirondacks, bike parking, tea time, 28 Tables, Peebles Island, beautiful sunsets, and the return of Mr. Dave.

+ We animated a map of Lyme disease's spread through the Northeast.

+ The dates for this year's Restoration Festival were announced -- and the first headliner: The Kamikaze Hearts.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: impressions at the dentist, the beer man's smile, a dairy goat, and Harold the Monster.
