A Few Weekend Things

Your humble Albablogger was struck down with an illness this week, so posting was light, but time marches on. 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) for now this blog will focus on stuff going on in Albany proper. Thanks to,, and all of the folks out there who actually bother posting their events on Instagram. 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. Happy weekend!
