A quick recap of the week

week review 2013-07-27

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

+ Kaitlin was a judge for this year's Hat Contest at The Track and came back with some photos.

+ We gave away tickets to the Capital Region Craft Brewers Festival by asking people: What's your favorite summer pairing?

+ The Wandering Dago food truck hit some speed bumps over its name.

+ Molly asked about finding a good sleep doctor.

+ The last "Fussy" Eat This for the foreseeable future: duck salad at Sweet Basil.

+ Albany Med announced plans for the residential and retail phase of the big Park South redevelopment -- and there was a lot of conversation about it.

+ The redevelopment will wipe clear the block that includes Valentine's and the Quintessence building. (And if you want the diner building, it could be yours.)

+ Look out!

+ Casey continued the in-between places series with a stop in Mechanicville and Stillwater.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: summer trips, Vroman's nose, the ballet, SPAC then, a smiling dragonfly, the future of the Quintessence building, Saratoga summer drinks, suggestions, a vegetarian multi-course meal, food at Skidmore, espresso, and some sort of machine.

+ Joanna asked about finding a medium-sized venue for a wedding reception.

+ A few of the items found on Craiglist this week: the goddess with the sad eyes, going through the toll booth, alphabet blocks, and the Indianapolis Kraut Cutter.

+ A new idea from Bruce Roter: the Albany Museum of Political Corruption.

+ And more bumper gawking.

Here's the whole week all lined up.

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

Say Something!

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. Thanks for being patient.
