Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:
+ Ravens Head Brewing has settled on the Cohoes Armory for its brewery/brewpub.
+ Without the brewery project, what becomes of St. Joe's now?
+ Daniel tried some truffles and bonbons from the Chocolate Mill.
+ Spot Coffee -- an apparently well-liked coffee/cafe chain from western New York -- opened in Saratoga and is also looking at Troy and other parts of the Capital Region.
+ Back in the day, the frozen lake was the hot place in Schenectady.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: meeting new people, exposure, an experience with cultural and anthropological implications, trivia trash talk, a focused tattoo, tipping, the best sushi, Valente's Three Little Pigs Macaroni and Cheese, Chowderfest, Western Mass brewpubs, ridiculous wings, eggs, antiques, porcupines, and Arent Van Curler.
+ Casey talked with the guy who runs the mechanical bull at the City Beer Hall -- he's a real bull rider.
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: a magical Trey ticket, an apparently seductive banana split, a lost bong at Target, and snowblowers.
+ We put together a quick list of summer music festivals.
+ Casey talked with people who work outside during winter about how they stay warm. (Also: she finds out which postal route in the city of Albany is the coldest.)
+ And: don't stick your hand in the chute of a snowblower.
Thanks to everyone who posted a comment or shared an idea or photo this week!
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.
