AOA ice cream social at Emack and Bolio's

scoops of ice cream in cup at Emack and Bolios

Update: All the spots have been claimed. There's a short wait list at Eventbrite in case anyone cancels and an extra spot opens up. See you on Wednesday!

Whether because of the weather or politics or whatever, we've been thinking lately this summer really could use more ice cream. So... let's eat some cream.

This Wednesday (August 3) AOA will be at Emack & Bolio's in Albany at 7 pm and we'll be giving out a free scoop of ice cream to 50 people. Yep. One scoop of ice cream for you -- and it's on us.

IMPORTANT DETAILS: To claim your free scoop of ice cream, please sign up via this Eventbrite page. The free ticket generated there will be your voucher for the scoop of ice cream.

We'll be at Emack & Bolio's from 7 pm until about 8:30 pm. It looks like the weather will be beautiful. So stop by, have some ice cream, talk with some fun people, and soak up some summer.

We hope to see you there.


Totally crashing this party.

This is such a wonderful idea. I'm so sorry to have to miss it. It's not even about my diet this time. Just the crazy summer schedule.

Sniff. I'd drown my sorrows in ice cream. But I may have to settle for pizza.

Didn't make the list but I'll still be swinging by! Was literally just telling my gf how badly I wanted to come back here!

Such a great idea, wish we could be there. Emack & Bolio's was one of our favorite new discoveries in Albany in the last few years we lived in the area, and we still stop in from time to time. For people who haven't been there . . . just go.

My husband and I are new in town and looking to meet people. Is it okay to come to this event without a ticket? We're happy to buy our own ice cream in exchange for friendly conversation :)

@Rachel: Yes, totally OK! We hope to see you there!

On behalf of my husband and sons, thanks for the ice cream, AOA!

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.

... This will make Albany into a place that many of us don't want to live in and came here to get away from: Big buildings, heavy traffic, congestion, noise, and parking shortages are really not what we or what people seeking to raise families and considering moving to our area want. Building big and tall will change Albany from a family friendly city to a metropolitan city and only increase the gap between the have's and have not's. ...
