One week from today, the Boo-jolais Vampire Ball swoops into the Albany Capital Center, promising a wicked night of delicious costumed devilry to kick off the Halloween season in high style. After trying out the costumed theme and shifting the date of this a few weeks earlier than previous years, it sounds like the Alliance for Positive Health has honed and refined the focus of this event, transforming it into a decadent Vampire Ball.
Albany is turning itself out for this evening, with local luminaries lending their culinary creations to the celebration at hand. The list is pretty impressive:
- ama cocina
- Athos Restaurant
- Ben & Jerry’s – Madison Avenue
- The City Beer Hall
- The Fifth Tier Baking Studio
- Healthy Café Catering Co.
- Honest Weight Food Co-Op
- Mazzone Hospitality
- The Melting Pot – Albany
- New World Bistro Bar
- Professor Java’s Coffee Sanctuary
- Rare: Craft Steak & Cocktail House
- Saati Deli & Catering

Also of note is the Silent Auction, which now includes a Tropical Island Getaway, a Mariah Carey Holiday concert, a weekend getaway at Gardner Farm Inn, a Burger 21 Food Truck party, a vodka tour and tasting, an Adirondack getaway at the Mirror Lake Inn, a day of pampering at Complexions Spa, and a Cocktail party put on by Experience & Creative Design.
