Get the door, it's the liquor store
Albany has a curious role in the world. It's the capital of New York, a state synonymous with its flagship... eponymous city. Yet the state funding that famous city receives gets decided on by politicians living in Albany — that kind of makes Albany the boss. What do you do when you’re the boss of such a boss state? If you’re Albany, you gladly allow that other city to hog the spotlight. Why would you want the hassle? You’ve got the Hudson River flowing right through downtown. Drive east a few minutes and you’re in Vermont. Walk downtown and you’ve got the Empire State Plaza, reflecting pools and an underground shopping mall. You can catch a performance at the Egg or walk around the 1800s-era NY State Capitol. Food, nightlife, art and entertainment — and on-demand booze. That part is thanks to Drizly. With beers, wines and liquors available on our app or website, you can order and have them at your door in 60 minutes or less.
