A quick recap of the week

week review 2012-12-08

Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:

+ The RPI Field House is back in circulation for concerts, with a new show announced for February.

+ Two questions about Christmas trees -- Jennifer asked about a good lot, and Sarah about finding a pesticide-free tree.

+ Here are a bunch of photos from the Victorian Stroll in Troy.

+ Ira Glass told a story with quite the effect in Troy.

+ A Twitter hashtag campaign resulted in phone calls from Tim Tebow and Missy Franklin for teens who were in the Northway crash.

+ There was a little bit of UAlbany planned for Pawnee.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: misleading meat, things missed, forging identity, Hudson winter walking, Christmas trees, snow geese, working in cafes, book donations, Ira Glass, the Tour de Mozz & Melba, goat curry, a very rare burger, beer flights, a lunch deal, Cake Tres Noggies, and being bored of yourself.

+ Anonymous asked about a fancy schmancy place to take his ladyfriend for their anniversary.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: drunk me, a testing scheme, a pasta machine, and Kenny the llama.

+ "If anyone bugs me about it I say, 'Well, we win state championships, does the football team?'"

+ New to town, Colleen asked about favorite local holiday traditions.

+ Daniel tried the poutine at the new Montreal Poutine at Crossgates.

And local holiday wish lists!

+ YNN anchor lady Kate Welshofer (and AnchorCat Brian Williams)
+ Photographer and storyteller Tim Dawkins
+ Deanna Fox from Silly Goose Farm and Local Flavor
+ Mamatoga's Jenny Witte
+ ASAP's Jim Larson

My husband and I took a couples massage class a few years ago around Valentines Day at Om Shanti Healing Arts. Not sure if it's offered year round but worth an ask.
