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.
