Gastropub brunch.jpg

The weekend and brunch at Capital City Gastropub? Yes, please.

This week was brought to you by florcles, broccoli rabe, beer, a sudden nip in the air and that "What? it's almost Thanksgiving already? What the hell happened to October?" kind of feeling.

And as always, it was brought to you by some awesome advertisers that help us keep you in the loop on things interesting and important -- or just fun and delicious. Speaking of delicious, Capital City Gastropub is open for Sunday brunch this weekend -- and every weekend. Sunday through Thursday they've got specials like $9 pizzas. Sunday through Tuesday you can get $3 select drafts. Wednesday is Half-price burger night -- all night. Wednesday through Friday they've got $9 pizzas and $3 select drafts from 5 to 7 p.m. But tonight is Friiday and every Friday microbrews are just $2.

If there's something you want to pass along to the AOA Crowd, we can help Just send us a note at advertising@alloveralbany.com.
