Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:
+ Danielle tried some of the many wing flavors (PB&J?) at Basil City in Troy -- including the Burning Human.
+ We gobbled up some bits about Albany's turkeys. (We're talking about actual turkeys.)
+ We talked with UAlbany grad Dion Flynn, who's been playing Barack Obama on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. (He and Fallon know each other from their Albany days.)
+ Right, there were an election this week... here are easy-scan local election result highlights.
+ The Icy, Snowy Apocalypse Meter made its first appearance of the season.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: Meat Romney, a nation divided by Facebook, generator ethics, BUILT, surveillance, winning Halloween, mushroom hunting, tattoos, mozz and melba drama, white whales, Helsinki Hudson, disappointing breakfast, a beermosa, miSci, Nanovember, maps, and a face.
+ We gave away VIP tickets to next week's AIDS Council Beaujolais Nouveau event by asking: What's something in the Capital Region that you should do now? As in, now. Right now.
+ Casey talked with the owners of Helsinki Hudson about what they have going on -- and what's happening in Hudson.
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: 50 shades of waiting, a platonic threesome, zebra, and a Corgi.
+ Lock up your policy wonks, C-SPAN is coming to town.
+ The Latham strip club Nite Moves -- and Steve Barnes -- were on the Colbert Report.

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.
