A Few Weekend Things

Here are a few things you might want to do this weekend, from football and hipster markets to nearly-naked ladies and more. 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. Thanks to,, and all of the folks out there who actually bother posting their events on their websites. Posting of events depends on my whims: recurring events may or may not be posted depending on how much other stuff is going on. Anything already sold out by noon on Friday won't be posted. Items in bold are taking place over multiple days or locations. *Asterisks* indicate an Albablog-recommended event. Happy weekend!
