Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 70. Clementine, You Lunatic

In case you've had your head in a hole for the past month, the Lilac Festival starts this Saturday. The weather looks pretty good, and since it has been quite warm, the lilacs will probably be out very early.

Remember too that the Rochester International Film Festival continues at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) and continues through Saturday evening.

First up, din-din once again at California Rollin'

Later, Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) has Jeff Elliot, apparently an acoustic performer judging by the caption in Freetime. I'd like to check the place out a little more than the brief visit I made last week -- its name is apparently an accurate description.

In the mean time, The Buddhahood will be at Frankie & Louie's Bayou Bar & Grill (The Centers at High Falls)

I'd still like to see Estrofest at School of the Arts (45 Prince St.) at some point ...

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)

Starting at 9:30 a.m. this morning, there's a public meeting to discuss downtown. It's at the Gleason Auditorium in the Bausch & Lomb Library (115 South Ave.) Although the meeting runs until 3:30 p.m., I'm not sure everyone is going to stay that long.

Remember that the Lilac Parade starts today at 10:30 a.m. and runs along South Avenue and Highland Avenue.

And finally starting this morning is the LaserDisc Rental-library Sale at Rowe Photographic (1737 Mt. Hope Ave.) They're finally getting out of the rental business altogether (the DVD sale is in June.)

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

Later at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) it will not be Peachy Nietzsche like it says in Freetime, but rather Kalibos.

Also, The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is having Garage Pop 9 with The Quitters, The High Risers, Riviera Playboys, El Destructo and The Hay-Makers.

Also2, Milestones (170 East Ave.) will have Better Days opening for Yolk. Better Days is pretty good, but I haven't seen Yolk.

Also3, Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) is having the jazz trio Rick Wahlers Trio. (Just marking the bands for a reason to see the bar ...)

WBER night at Red (171 St. Paul.)

Mother's Day - Call your mom.

Tonight at the Lilac Festival stage at Highland and South is Hypnotic Clambake at 7:00 p.m. Freetime describes it as "swirling, infectiously danceable music." I haven't heard them personally but I've heard of them several times.

Briefly afterward, Breakfast at Tiffany's will be at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) at 8:00 p.m.

  • Futurama: Mother's Day - Mom, the founder of Mom's Friendly Robot Company, demands world domination on Mother's Day.
  • King of the Hill: Transnational Amusements Presents: Peggy's Magic Sex Feet - Peggy finds out that fetishists are admiring her big feet on the Internet.
  • Simpsons: It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge - A jilted bride moves in with the Simpsons and smothers Homer and the children with motherly love, driving Marge mad.
  • Malcolm in the Middle: Smunday - On Monday morning, Malcolm and his brothers convince their ailing motherthat it's Sunday.

The Nuts & Bolts Improv Troupe will again be at Club Vibes (150 Andrews St.) at 8:00 p.m. It's $5 to get in and it's way totally worth it.

Dan Liberto hosts his Open Mic Comedy Night at Froggy's Bar & Grill (1129 Empire Blvd.)
