A quick recap of the week

week review 2013-01-19

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

+ Casey surveyed the hot food at Stewart's.

+ Terrence asked about good open mic nights.

+ Coming to Troy: The League of Extraordinary Red Heads.

+ We gave a bunch of stuff to help keep someone on track in 2013 by asking: What's your resolution for 2013 -- for yourself, the Capital Region, or the world?

+ Sean asked about finding a good daycare near Albany.

+ One of the people behind the proposal to open a brewery/restaurant at St. Joseph's in Albany says they're now looking at other options.

+ The state legislature passed -- and Andrew Cuomo signed -- a new gun control bill, giving New York one of the nation's strictest laws on assault rifles (along with many other provisions).

+ Casey highlighted the people who have climbed all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks -- in the winter.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: Miss New York, parking enforcement, Lark Street, a frozen lake, Sleeping Beauty, cross country skiing, love letters, the Chocolate Mill, savory cheesecake, comedic public performance art declined, a vegetarian Reuben, beer, a lunch date, infrastructure, historical markers, and goodbye.

+ We pulled together a list of a bunch of notable concerts coming up over the next few months.

+ We heard from a local TV producer who's making a documentary about Dr. Tom Little, a Delmar optometrist who was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom for his work in Afghanistan.

+ A few of the things found on Craigslist this week: an enthralling hat, a burning sensation, a hearty cat, and a bear trap.

+ We gave away tickets to Monster Jam by asking: What would you crush?

+ Ass Backwards -- AKA Sister Spirit, AKA That Movie That Shot in Center Square and Other Parts of the Capital Region During Summer 2010 -- is premiering at the Sundance Film Fesitval next week.

+ And answers to questions you didn't actually ask.

My daughter just started private swim lessons at Ciccotti Center in Colonie. She has only been to two but so far she loves it. They also seem to be flexible with scheduling for the private lessons - doesn't need to be at a set day and time each week.

Swim lessons for young children?
