This week was brought to you by

Thumbnail image for Mop and Bucket Co.jpg

MopCo's Spontaneous Broadway, now through June 12 -- a different show every time.

This week was brought to you by sung or sprummer or whatever it's called when it's 88 degrees in May.

It was also brought to you by AOA advertisers like the fabulous Mop & Bucket Improv Company, opening a brand new season of Spontaneous Broadway. In Act I performers improvise wonderful songs based on audience suggestions. The audience picks their favorite song and the cast uses it to improvise a Broadway musical in act two.

Here's the thing about AOA advertisers -- not only do they have some great goods and services, they also believe in AOA, and they're helping to support a community that's important to you. Without them, we couldn't bring you the information you've come to expect. So please support them when you can. Thanks.

One of the many cozy homes listed with Brian Brosen and Reggie Monroe at The Capital Team at Realty USA.

This week was brought to you by good advice, the return of socks and sweaters and 174 pizzas.

It was also brought to you by Brian Brosen and Reggie Monroe at The Capital Team at Realty USA, who created a bonafide tournament of pizza miracle, when they bought out all of the tickets to this weekend's TOP final at Shmaltz brewing and gave them away to 100 hungry readers. In addition to being pizza philanthropists, Brian and Reggie can help out with your residential and commercial real estate needs in the Capital Region. Because that's how they roll.
