A quick recap of the week

week review 2013-01-12

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

+ We gave away tickets to the Slider Slam at the Albany Chefs' Food and Wine Festival by asking: What would you like to miniaturize in the Capital Region?

+ Jennifer called for a review of what people should do when their dog poops during the winter.

+ Daniel highlighted the baguettes at the Placid Baker in Troy.

+ GlobalFoundries is starting a new $2 billion project in Luther Forest.

+ Say hello to Hipster Henry Hudson.

+ The Albany parking permit system is starting soon -- here are the official maps.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: appalling conversation, feeling comfortable enough to be ridiculous, real winter, wisdom, jerks, Albany Grease, detractors, Starbucks, Nosh, Mahar's, the Jimmer Lee, syrup, a simple wedding, a vintage camper, and little things.

+ Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address was Wednesday -- here's a quick scan.

+ We gave away tickets to the Hattie's Mardis Gras party at the Canfield Casino by asking: What's something people in the Capital Region should relax about, or let go?

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: a prescription for arm candy, the desire to stick a guy in a gym bag, a cupola, and goat wagons.

+ Someone finally stuck to it Andrew Cuomo. And you should maybe have it stuck to you, too.

+ The NYS Writers Institute spring slate is out.

+ And another round of bumper gawking.

Say Something!

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.

Although it's outside the Capital Region and so naturally isn't included in the AOA listing, as ever I remind everyone that the Dutchess County Fair is the biggest of all NYS county fairs and worth the trip to Rhinebeck.
