Hamilton's Albany on WMHT

WMHT's new documentary about Alexander Hamilton's connections to Albany -- the aptly-titled Hamilton's Albany -- premieres this Sunday, December 4 5 at 10 pm. Blurbage:

Join host Ryan Fitzpatrick as he explores Hamilton's Albany life, from marrying into the wealthy Schuyler family, to the feud that fueled the duel with Aaron Burr. Marrying into the Schuyler family raised the social and political status of the ambitious Hamilton, who was born out-of-wedlock on the Caribbean island of Nevis in 1757. He went on to become the senior aide to General George Washington, was a member of the Continental Congress, an author of the Federalist Papers, a champion of the Constitution and the first Secretary of the Treasury.
This historical documentary is a look at the society and issues that informed some of his most important decisions. Shot on location at the Schuyler Mansion, home of Revolutionary War General Philip Schuyler and his family; The First Church, where Reverend Eliphalet Nott delivered a rousing eulogy that helped turn the tide of public opinion against dueling; and other sites around Albany, NY.

The 30-minute doc will be also run December 8 at 7:30 pm, 10 pm, and 10:45 pm.

Preview screening: The Albany Institute of History and Art is hosting preview screenings of Hamilton's Albany this Friday, December 2 at 5:30 pm, 6:15 pm, and 7 pm. They're free to attend.

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
