This week was brought to you by work -- however you do it.
It was, of course, also brought to you by AOA advertisers like Advantage Transportation. They provided the pretty awesome party busses for the AOA Bad Boys, Broads and Bootleggers Tour, and they can provide limos, trolleys and party busses for your special occasion.
If there's something you want to pass along to the AOA crowd, we can help get you started. It's easy and affordable. Just send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
