It’s the (Big Memorial Day) Weekend!

Jungle Shelby

Yes, it’s the first long holiday weekend of the summer, so get out there and enjoy. Please take time out to remember those who have served to protect us. And, please, be careful out there…

But before we head out, we’d like to send a great big thank-you to everyone who dropped by this week to add encouragement, support and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about Nippertown.com.

Of course, we couldn’t possibly cover the wide, wonderful scope of offerings around town without a dedicated and devoted bunch of wonderful writers, photographers, artists, tipsters and other assorted enablers who continually enrich us all with their contributions. So a big salute goes out to this week’s community contributors:

Larry Murray
Kirsten Ferguson
Joel Patterson
Gail Burns
Rudy Lu
Bokonon
Jason Spiro
J Hunter
Albert Brooks
Stan Johnson
Paul Jossman
Matt Mac Haffie

Please consider adding your name to this list. Just send us something – a review, preview, interview, photo, list, rant, crayon drawing or whatever’s on your mind. Remember, Nippertown is your hometown, and we can’t possibly do this without your help.

And thanks to all of the folks from the area venues and organizations who were gracious enough to provide us with review tickets and/or photo passes for their events:

The Egg, Albany
New Yorkers Against Fracking
Planet Arts, Catskill
Valentine’s Music Hall, Albany
Brown’s Revolution Hall, Troy
Athens Cultural Center, Athens
The Linda, Albany
Union College’s Memorial Chapel, Schenectady
Class Act Productions
City of Albany Office of Special Events, Albany
Russell Sage College, Troy
Doug’s On Main Street, Bennington

Thanks for keeping Nippertown alive… and lively,

Sara Ayers
