A quick recap of the week

week review 2012-12-15

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

+ Many photos from this year's Santa Speedo Sprint, which was a fun time, as usual.

+ Laura asked about a good place for taking indoor family photos. (There are already a few good suggestions, but a few more might help.)

+ Daniel says the flatbread pizza at Tara Kitchen is a "one-two punch of big, bold flavors."

+ It looks like flu season is cranking up.

+ Casey tried the tableside make-your-own s'mores at Madison Station.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: Victoria's Secret, catabetes, a player, hours, donations, Five Ribers, running, the Kayaderosseras Creek, Festival of Trees, the South Troy Burger, Henry Street Taproom, smores, Godzilla, ale, dessert, Chucksmas, and meatloafistry.

+ We pulled together a big list of places to ice skate in the Capital Region.

+ Following up on a question from Laura, we looked into the Albany County work program for jail inmates.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: the romantic Home Depot department, chin bone of the gods, an old railroad map, a flammable liquids cabinet.

+ Lucas asked about places to keep his golf game in shape during the winter.

+ We stopped in at Marisa's Place to award them their Tournament of Pizza trophy, and hear about their philosophy of pizza.

And local holiday wish lists!

+ Laura McCarthy, from Audubon New York
+ Author and self-described Troy supremacist Duncan Crary
+ Radio host and artist Laura Glazer
+ "Temporary" Center Square resident Bill Pettit
+ And AOA contributor Casey Normile
