Sell Out Sunday – The Return
Weekends are difficult. It’s nice to occasionally take a full two days off from writing. But the Fussy household is full of six-day workers (including half of the children) so my schedule is far from atypical.
Still, I’ve been struggling for a long time about what to write on Sundays. It wasn’t the best day to talk about wine. It turned out to be a great day to write about breakfast, but over the past several months I’ve covered most of my breakfast repertoire. In theory I could try to expand my cooking for the sake of the blog. But that kind of feels wrong.
Then there was this Sell Out Saturday thing where I took press releases and set them to post automatically on the one day I did take off. I never really got into the hang of that.
All of this is to say that I think I see Sell Out Saturday morphing into Sell Out Sunday. Except the things I’m promoting below aren’t all press releases. Two are actually events that I was informed about over email that are being spearheaded by people I know. I figure that’s close enough.
Maybe this should be Shout Out Sunday, because I also just stumbled upon a new Albany food blogger I think you should meet. Her name is Mimi and her blog is here (and now in the blogroll).
We’ll see. But until I figure it out, you should check out these upcoming events.
The All Over Albany One
On May 17 AOA is hosting a Burger Lab at Central Steak . You’ll get to invent your own sliders using a lineup of tasty toppings — everything from pork belly to wasabi scallion aioli to caramelized fennel to cotija cheese. The event is a fundraiser for the ASAP Daisies — a group of young philanthropists who help a host of good organizations in the Capital Region.
For $15 you get all the sliders and toppings you can eat — plus a fun night with interesting people. Get your tickets here — there’s a limited number. It all starts at 6 pm on May 17 (that’s a Thursday).
But wait, there’s more: You could win a free ticket and also get your burger creation on the Central Steak menu.
