Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:
+ Tim Varney has created an interesting local history mobile app -- Albany: Then and Now.
+ We got a look at the new Sciortino's, and talked with Matt Baumgartner about the potential of Albany.
+ Daniel recommended Sin -- specifically, the Old Sin cider from Slyboro Ciderhouse.
+ We got a taste of the "new make" whiskey being produced by the Albany Distilling Company -- it opened this week.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: a really long relay, Omi at night, the Starlite, the Big E, a tattoo for mom, pizza in Latham, Tierra Farm, bulgokee, Pho Yum, the New York System Wiener, rolling out of the restaurant, hibachi, pumpkin beer, a heart explosion, power, Henry Street, chimney sweeps, banana peels.
+ We gave away tickets to the Albany Barn Fusion food/art event by asking: What two things in the Capital Region would you like to fuse together?
+ Oobleck is funky.
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: wishing for sick children, a helpful decline, therapeutic spanking, and... a mummified cat and rat.
+ Casey told us about the Wandering Dago food truck in Schenectady.
+ Molly Durnin won the Exit Factor.
+ Price Chopper is planning its "most ambitious project ever undertaken" -- in Latham.
+ And we're giving away a crazy package of restaurant gift certificates and arts event passes for MoHu by asking: Make up your own word, and don't forget to tell us what it means.

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.
