A Few Weekend Things

Here are a few things you might want to do this weekend. The exciting twist: for my own sanity in terms of organizing a truly overwhelming amount of info (and also because of my unhealthily intense level of devotion to hyper-local boosterism) this blog focuses on stuff going on in Albany proper.

Items in bold are taking place over multiple days. Happy weekend!
