518 Day logoToday is May 18. Which is 5/18. Yep, 518. Like the area code.

In honor of 518 Day, local writer Michael Janairo has organized an "online celebration of the vibrant arts communities of the Capital Region." Blurbage on how it works:

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
