Peck’s Arcade Movie

After eating at Peck’s Arcade a few times and seeing all that goes into each night, I wanted to create a video giving everyone a look behind the scenes. I hope this video does that and also gives you a feeling of the space if you haven’t been yet. I can’t recommend this place enough, if you haven’t been, make a reservation as soon as you can.

Cocktails with Creatives

On Thursday April 30, The Upstate NY AIGA will be hosting a Cocktails with Creatives event at Madison Pour House in Albany (and also simulatenously at Beer Belly Deli & Pub in Syracuse and Butapub in Rochester).

From the event page:

Whether you’re a designer yourself, work with them, or just want to get to know a few, this is a great opportunity to connect with your community!

This is a great opportunity for all creative people to meet others in their area all while enjoying a (relatively) new bar in Albany. Registration for the event is free, but space is limited, so go register!
