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

+ We shared a bunch of pics from the AOA Bad Boys, Broads, & Bootleggers Tour III. Thanks to everyone who came along!

+ A string of posts about burgers started with drawing asking people: What's your favorite local burger?

+ We took some people along on a tasting tour of the new-school burger chains.

+ A few more thoughts the local taxi situation and the push for Uber and Lyft.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: the Cohoes Mastodon, frostweed, Jay Mountain, running, Syracuse, the scary, art, supper club, restaurant stories, pickles, Sonic, Saratoga, Schuylerville, pumpkin products, an odd hat, and getting turned around.

+ That burger tasting tour had to include fries, too.

+ Julie suggested some spots to hit while exploring New Hampshire.

+ We talked with Crave's Devin Ziemann about the art of creating interesting burgers.

+ And quick takes on a bunch of veggie burgers from around the area.
