Eat, drink, be merry. Now what?

 The Times Union had this article in the Sunday paper this weekend about the redevelopment of downtown Albany and how the scenery has changed in the past ten years, making the area an "entertainment district." 

"The eating-and-drinking efflorescence seems an undeniable success. It also raises questions: Has downtown reached its saturation point for bars? Is there more to downtown than entertainment?"

This also begs the question: Is there more to "entertainment" than eating and drinking?  And, where does the arts community of Albany fit into the equation, especially with the plans for the new convention center?
