A quick recap of the week

week review 2014-09-12

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

+ We gave away tickets to ASAP's Festival of Meats by asking about meaty things in the Capital Region.

+ Mary asked for roofing company recommendations.

+ We watched the 4+ hours of Capital Region casino presentations and condensed them into a 4-minute (or so) read.

+ Lauren surveyed composting services in the Capital Region.

+ We put together a clickable map of the results from the Andrew Cuomo-Zephyr Teachout primary -- Cuomo did not do well in the Capital Region.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: not voting for Cuomo, jazz at the rumble site, woodland finds, a long hike, Grant's Cottage, the Saratoga Wine & Food Fest, beer week in Troy, salad, the right decision at the right time, sashimi with twigs, watching football, a metal silhouette of a massacre, an abandoned car wash, and goodbye.

+ If ever you need an excuse to go outside/leave work early/whatever on a sunny day, here it is.

+ Schenectady HS senior Draven Rodriguez won yearbook and the internet this week.

+ A peek inside the new City Line Bar and Grill in Albany -- a new building that doesn't really look like anything else around.

+ And, yep, they're broken up.

Here's the whole week all lined up.

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