Jersey Shore Season 6 to be Filmed in Lake George

The Examiner is reporting, no sources whatsoever, typos and all, that the next Jersey Shore season will be filmed in Lake George June 2nd to August 31st.

What do you think? Are they ‘blogging 4 hits’? Is this even blogable?
Is this an early ‘April Fools’ joke? Did they ‘get you’?
We’re they attracted to LG because of their splatter t-shirts?
Is Jersey Shore ‘totes over’?
Will there be enough ‘new poon’ for them to ‘tear thru’?
Will you try to ‘smush’ Pauly D?
Will you babysit mini-Snooki?
Will you be mad if Snooki wins the MegaMillions?

UPDATE: A nice commenter man leaves us with some insight:

Monday is April Fool’s day. The source publication, The Glens Falls Chronicle, usually posts an “April Fool’s Story” in the issue preceding April 1.

Has this been ‘debunked’? Is the Examiner ‘mad stupid’?
Did I just want any excuse to use that photo?

First Look: Shogun

The past couple of months have drawn attention to that particular stretch of sidewalk from the corner of Lark to Madison, with Lark Tavern reopening (as not the Lark Tavern but as Any Other Bar in Random Small Town USA) and the former Art Room building next door going under a mysterious facelift. On Tuesday, the renovations were unveiled and the Albany location of Shogun was officially open to the public for business.

As stated in past reviews, going to a new business during their soft opening or opening day/week can potentially result in you not wanting to return again. Sometimes it’s smart to wait until a business gets in the groove of things, iron out any kinks, etc. but we were all pretty excited that the Lark St. neighborhood is now home to a sushi spot that we decided to check it out on its opening day.

Here’s the full gallery from Andrew and check out the rest of KC’s review beneath the cut.

Drake to play SPAC June 14th

Drake is coming to SPAC with J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and French Montana. Consistently described as ‘the softest rapper in the game’ (which basically means most accessible) this show is probably going to be absolutely packed out with lonely, sad men and the women that dumped them.

Tickets are $34 for lawn seats and $56 for inside seats.

Ticket Giveaway: Dayglow L!fe in Color

Dubbed as “America’s Largest Paint Party,” the Dayglow tour returns to the Washington Avenue Armory, on April 5th, this time with, well, the promise of more paint. There’s now acrobats and laser showcases worked into the evening and cannons specifically developed for Dayglow, which shoot paint over 100 feet into the crowd. It’s recommended that if you go, you wear white. It’ll get messy, to say the least.

The Dayglow tour sold out over 50 cities during its fall tour (check out our recap here) and will return to Albany in its spring edition with DJs Sidney Samson, David Solano, Alex English, Trevmunz and Kloud9.

We’ve got a pair of tickets to giveaway so, if you’re interested, enter below. We’ll pick a winner on April 1st, no foolin’.
