Thursday, Sept. 7, Dine to Donate at New World Bistro Bar. 20% of all proceeds go to Harvey relief.

This week was brought to you by the cool breezes, sweet corn and school shopping.

And here at AOA, the week was brought to you by advertisers who are committed to keeping the AOA community supplied with interesting information.

We appreciate them, and we hope you do as well.

A special shout out to the folks at New World Bistro Bar . This Thursday, September 7, they'll be hosting a Dine to Donate event, giving 20 percent of all the proceeds that night to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and the Houston Food Bank.

If you have something you'd like to advertise on AOA, we're happy to help. It's easy and affordable. Just send us a note at and we'll get you started.

Meanwhile, here are the other advertisers that made this week on AOA possible. Stop in and visit them when you can, and thank them for supporting the information you look for in the Capital Region.
