Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:
+ Amy asked about finding a good painter.
+ We put together an updated list of places to cut your own Christmas tree.
+ B asked about where to buy tires.
+ Daniel made the case for the wings at the Ruck being "a source of regional pride."
+ We gawked at the inside of the 27 Western residential conversion.
+ The Washington Ave Armory worked out an agreement with the city so that it can hold concerts again.
+ Zach asked about finding a good puppy class.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: ten fingers and ten toes, delivering Thanksgiving, courier ham, St. Patrick's, downtown Troy, unholy lust for egg nog, $11 ice cream, winter weight, Valatie, brunch, date night, sophisticated poutine, the corner of Pearl and Columbia, an automotive moniker, and toddler take aways.
+ We gave away tickets to see Lewis Black at the Palace -- and dinner at the Merry Monk -- by asking: What do you think is absurd about the Capital Region?
+ Sean emailed about an odd sound he keeps hearing around downtown Albany -- and it sounds like there's an answer.
+ With the Powerball jackpot over $500 million, we talked with the owner of Coulson's about being a "lucky" location.
+ Sean (a different Sean) asked about where to buy firewood -- there were high-quality answers.
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: balling on a budget, ironic thanks, a barn, and a BBQ smoker made from a car.
+ And after a video shot at ALB racked up tens of thousands of views, we looked at what sorts free speech and photography rights people have at a place like an airport.

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.
