Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 37: Thirty-Seven Year Glitch
I'm running a bit late this week once again, so the entertainment value won't be as great as in the past. This is for two reasons. First, the beloved 3.3 micro-Farad non-polarized electrolytic capacitor which regulates the horizontal field voltage on my Mac SE display (which is where I do most of this writing in the living room) has passed beyond the veil (so to speak) and tends to break down at a much lower voltage than its rating. Second, I realized that since Freetime is a two-week paper, the odd weeks are much easier to write because I can take my sweet time--this week, I got Freetime but a few hours ago and had to start cranking through it. Hmm...there has to be a better way.
Also, just to keep you all up on what's coming up: Jon Stewart of the Daily Show will be doing some form of stand-up comedy next-next-next weekend (October 9) at RIT. If people mumble something about being interested, I'll go ahead and figure out how to get tickets and such. This is a very unique event for RIT because they actually informed the alumni.
Oh yeah, and next Thursday, Buddhahood is playing at Red (171 St. Paul).
Movies this week:
Could it be East End Festival #4? Could it be Octoberfest for
September? It is, it is. Supposedly there's food, folks, and fun
at McDonalds and bands and stuff on the
block of East Avenue
(170 East Avenue.)
entertainment is a couple of cover
bands: Margaritaville covering Jimmy Buffet, and another band
covering Elton John.
Noon. O'Bagelo's: Eat. Pay. Save some for later.
Later, I think I'll go see Southern Culture on the Skids at
They're described in Freetime: "the trio plays a
unique style of southern boogie, hillbilly rock which has
been described as 'the ideal accompaniment for your
backyard barbeques.'" White Cotton Panties is opening
for them, and they are the primary reason I'm going--my
friend described them to me as, "you gotta see these chicks, man."
I think they play instruments and sing or something.
This weekend the Naples Grape Festival is once again all over Naples but
still primarily on
It's about an
hour and a half drive from Rochester,
and it's fun to go with a group of friends.
Rest. Really, this time.
At 10:00 p.m., Dan Liberto hosts the open mic comedy night at
Token Joe's at
150 Andrews Street.
Matt The Bartender switches the Rohrbach's (315 Gregory Street) TVs to Comedy Central and pumps up the volume to watch South Park. I think this week is a new episode.
Even better than that, Ani DiFranco is playing at the Auditorium Center.
I need to figure out more about this, but I believe George Clinton & the Phantom Funk All Stars
are playing at
Milestones. You can check
out the calendars yourselves.
* Thanks to Jan for being the first to remind me. The rest of you can stop now.
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.
