A quick recap of the week

week review 2012-02-23

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

+ Daniel shared his favorite flavor of Stewart's ice cream.

+ We ran a fast break on some numbers after Siena was rumored to be up for inclusion in a new -- and very good -- basketball conference.

+ The era of holy-crap-will-I-have-a-media-job-tomorrow? continued.

+ Casey stopped in to taste some unpretentious beer at the unpretentious Butternuts brewery near Cooperstown.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: a remarkable yet neglected story, change, school-based comestibles masquerading as actual food, a zero-degree wind chill relay, OK - THICK ICE, summer in February, mac 'n cheese, the Confectionery, king cake, the last waddle of the porcupine, a gobbled gobbler, and a riddle.

+ We gave away tickets to New York in Bloom and brunch at City Beer Hall by asking: What are you looking forward to this spring in the Capital Region?

+ The closest most of us will ever come to an Oscar.

+ Two local guys have made a significant addition to the Craigslist Wedding Date Wanted canon.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: manscaping, an exceptional cough, honeybees, and a fossil rock.

+ Saratoga native Chris Millis spent three very productive days.

+ And Sujatha asked about finding a dosa maker for parties.

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

... as somebody who is interested in developing downtown and possibly starting a business there, but isn't Columbia development, what message do those tax breaks send to me?
