Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 36. ?enoynA ,kraM noitseuQ
Holy Macarena! I do believe everything in this city happens this weekend.
Movies this week (links courtesy The Internet Movie Database, duh):
Tonight is Barnes & Noble's monthly Poetry Slam...every third
Thursday, much like this particular Thursday.
If I am to understand correctly, there is a Downtown Alive at Five tonight at five, downtown. It's supposedly at the Blue War Memorial Cross Arena, they probably want money to get in, and I'll hopefully get on the mailing list to be able to find out about more.
Later, and with a mere six months to St. Patrick's Day (how 'bout that),
Linda Rutheford and Celtic Fire will be at
(170 East Avenue.)
tonight. As usual, there's
a $5 cover; you additionally have to listen to the McCrells--a
good-but-unremarkable Irish/Rockabilly band.
Noon. O'Bagelo's: Eat. Pay. Rinse. Repeat.
Of course, I really should get my butt in gear and get over to George Eastman House at 900 East Avenue to buy advance tickets ($10 for plebes, $8 for members) to see Chuck Jones present highlights of his work with Warner Bros. Odds on they're sold out and I'm just too dang slow, but hey, here's hoping.
If you'd care to do something else today, here's what's else:
This weekend is the Naples Grape Festival all over Naples but
Packed with festival
stuff, there's an overt grape theme for some reason. You can get
grape pie, grape ice cream, grapeburgers, grape fries, Grape Ape,
and grape crepes. It's about an
hour and a half drive from Rochester,
and it's fun to go with a group of friends.
That, and today is the first of many "Camera Rochester" meetings. A
couple weeks ago I mentioned that that was the first one, but as it
turned out, they don't bother to go on Labor Day. Essentially, the
first and third Mondays of each month from September through June, a
camera club meets at Atonement Lutheran Church at
1900 Westfall Road
from 7:30 to 9:30. I haven't been there yet, so I don't know if it'll
be intelligent, useful, and helpful or just a bunch of pretentious
wannabes showing off their pix. [Sounds familiar, eh?]
Matt The Bartender switches the TV's to Comedy Central and pumps up the volume to watch South Park which runs during-and-around the ten-o'clock hour (well, the show is technically at ten exactly, but the drinking and food occurs elsewhen.) All the joy happens at Rohrbach's on 315 Gregory Street. Mind you this is extra special because it's actually a brand spankin' new episode of South Park.
The part that isn't very new follows:
For the last few months I've been having lunch at O'Bagelo's on State Street on Saturday at 12:00. The same people who have been going have been coming back, so I guess I'm not on crack about the food being good.
I'll be there at 12:00. For the few of you who haven't been there, it's on State Street between the Federal Building and Frontier Field. It's south of 490 and north of Andrews on the west side of the street (i.e., across from West Group on the east side.) Their sign is flush against the building so it's a little hard to see unless you're looking. They've got a variety of sandwiches on bagels, fresh bread or fresh rolls, and some soups. There are some veggie stuff too, but sometimes they don't make the fried eggplant very early.
Anyhow, RSVP, call, e-mail, or just show up.
