A quick recap of the week

week review 2013-02-02

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

+ Casey highlighted a handful of Capital Region spots for tea snobs.

+ It looks like Ravens Head Brewing is headed to Cohoes, not St. Joseph's in Albany.

+ Uncle Sam, before the makeover.

+ Daniel talked with the winner of the Barista Albany competition about coffee.

+ We gawked at Kiernan Plaza.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: fire, rights, running in sub-zero weather, unintentional Gatorade slush, appreciation, how to meet people, gilding the fathead lilly, sweet potatoes, Boar's Head, Taiwan Noodle, the Ruck, one day, and frost.

+ The latest turn in the parking drama around the ESP.

+ It appears the tide has turned on the flu season.

+ Nicole shared a weekend trip to Manchester, Vermont.

+ We tried the savory, Super Bowl-themed cupcakes from Coccadotts. (And had the courage to do something Anderson Cooper wouldn't.)

+ In case it wasn't already clear, this part of New York is Giants country. (Those poor Jets...)

+ And RPI is getting a Watson system from IBM -- here's a future timeline of its life there.

Thanks to everyone who posted a comment or shared an idea or photo this week!
