Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning


"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

Wings over Albany ($, 1, 90, 1704 Western Ave., in a strip mall past Crossgates): Very good wings. The twist is that they are boneless. You order by the pound. For a bunch of hungry people, get 3 pounds divided between medium buffalo-style and barbecue style. Make sure you get the blue cheese. Don't try to eat in here - it is almost exclusively a takeout place. Open on Sundays for football orders. Takes about 20 minutes to prepare a pick-up order. The buffalo style are hotter than most, so be careful in your selection of heat. Most recently ate here: mid-May, 2005
