Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:
+ We gave away tickets to the upcoming Ira Glass appearance at the Troy Music Hall by asking: What's your favorite story?
+ Albany police say it arrested a group of students for a hazing incident involving water, wooden paddles, and rubber hoses.
+ We drove through (and around) the new Washington Ave/Fuller Road flyover/circle. It appears opinions are split on the new florcle.
+ Daniel highlighted the broccoli rabe from Migliorelli Farm -- and it's interesting backstory.
+ Nichelle asked about finding a salon to go platinum blonde (or any other extreme color).
+ Casey tried out the new Growler Station at Price Chopper.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: The Confectionery, veterans, ethics in the wine store, a church with a canon, Henry Street, food trucks, Dave's Pizza and Burgers, Malayasian food, maple syrup, a storied title, hot sauce, autumn in a jar, the Hennig Preserve, a marathon trip, the library, a dream window, and historical dogs.
+ Anonymous asked about finding a couples cooking class. (We're still looking for an answer on this one -- hey, cooking class places, maybe this is something to think about organizing.)
+ Casey looked into why that monument in Townsend Park in Albany spells Puerto Rico as "Porto Rico" (and other interesting historical bits about it).
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: a thing for stocks, voyeurism, a copper sink, and a gorilla head.
+ Jennifer asked about places to shop for clothes that are not chains.
+ And Chris, a college student new to town, asked about finding good 18+ places to go out.

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.
