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.

... I tend to ask questions that make the person think about what they just said. I ask it sweetly and in a tone that notes confusion on my part. I have been called honey in the office and asked the person, " Can I ask what you mean when you call me honey? Because you don't call John honey." It calls out that he's treating you differently for being a woman. If he still doesn't get it, you can be more direct: "I appreciate that you respect my work and treat me equally, but I wouldn't want others to think otherwise based on how you address me."
