ALBANY -- It's as close as Albany, with no major pro or college sports teams, can come to a tailgating party: The Booze Summit.
Or, as state officials would prefer, the Wine, Beer and Spirits Summit.
No matter the party-on signals that might be sent, state officials are intent on shining a spotlight, so to speak, on the state's industries that help produce and market beer, wine and liquor. The summit, to be held Wednesday in Albany, comes following Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Yogurt Summit in August. The idea is to outline ways the industry and state can work together to promote a private business marketplace.
The governor's office did not yet announce Wednesday's event; the New York Farm Bureau jumped in and let the word out this morning.
