AOA birthday cupcakes 2016

We figure we've now made something just short of 1,200 birthday cupcakes over the life of AOA.

We're skipping out a little earlier today so we can get ready for tonight's AOA birthday party.

It will be the eighth such party, which is almost unbelievable. The beginning feels like it was both a long time ago and just yesterday.

As we've said before, the best thing about working on AOA has been the people -- so many interesting, interested, thoughtful, and funny people. We really appreciate that you've been a part of all this.

Thank you.


Best Party of The Year- Doctor Irritation Approves!

Thank you! Oh, yeah! That's what I should have written on the post about "sharing". AOA is my favorite thing to share! Thanks for a lovely party, too - it was awesome to spend some time in that great new Center of Gravity space!

Happy Birthday AOA!

Thank you Gregg & Mary for another stupendous party!

Can you please email me where the first two were held?
The first one i was at was The Point
Maybe the second was at the point?
City beer Hall
City beer hall
Takk House
Tech Center.

Just wanted to thank you again for throwing us a party for your birthday.
The TVCOG is such a cool place/space/concept. Plus, seeing a 3D printed Anasha in various colors and sizes took the (cup)cake.

mg: the first two were held at the Midtown Tap and Tea Room on New Scotland Ave - I don't think The Point was open then.

Wish i had been at your first two parties!
I meant the first one i attended was at The Point.
Have to google The Malt Room to see what it looks like.
Missed out on seeing Midtown Tap before it closed.
The first night of my high school reunion had a casual party at the Albany Pump Station.
Looking forward to seeing party photos to see if i FINALLY MADE the photo scene!

How do you get an invite?

I have a confession to make: I ate two cupcakes. But in my feeble defense I ate zero cupcakes last year.
As always, great party! Thanks for it and thanks for creating some of the best content in Albany
