This Friday at the Washington Park Lakehouse a bunch of rising Capital Region chefs will be serving up a selection of fusion-inspired dishes -- along with music and art -- as part of Fusion, a benefit for the Albany Barn project. AOA has a pair of tickets to the event -- and we're giving them away. To enter, please answer this question in the comments:
The Albany Barn is re-imagining the former St. Joseph's Academy as live/work space for artists. What's something else in the Capital Region that could be re-imagined -- and as what?
It could be another building, sure. (The Central Warehouse could definitely use some re-imagining.) But it also could be an attitude or way of thinking about this place. There's no right answer. So be creative.

+ Brian Bowden, Executive Chef, Javier's
