Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 77. An Official Flag

Too bad for Weird Al at Tags (Route 352, Big Flats, N.Y.) July 8 because that's the same days as the Corn Hill Arts Festival. Keep it in mind for next weekend.

The one good thing about not having anybody go out much is that nobody catches my mistakes -- which should be incentive enough, now that I mention it. Apparently Dan Liberto's comedy nights are changing faster than I've been keeping track. He's no longer at the Colosseum on Tuesdays nor at Froggy's on Wednesdays.

  • The Patriot - Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) gets involved in the American Revolution when the Redcoats threaten his idealistic son.
  • The Perfect Storm - In October 1991, a group of sailors disappeared in the Atlantic Ocean near Gloucester, Massachusetts while fishing for swordfish. A year later their footage was found.
  • Rocky and Bullwinkle - While Rocky and Bullwinkle live off the residuals from their cartoon show, Boris and Natasha become real and team up with Fearless Leader. Featuring the original voice of Rocket J. Squirrel, June Foray
  • Trixie - Emily Watson stars as Trixie, an eccentric woman who aspires to quit her job as a security guard and become a private detective. I guess it's supposed to be funny, but I've seen two diametrically opposed reviews concerning the quality of the flick.

First, Dar Williams will be playing for free at Manhattan Square Park (130 Chestnut St.) starting at 5:30 p.m. She's been played on WBER for some time now -- particularly her song Are You Out There from her album End Of The Summer. The Nields and Mike Errico will also be there.

Later at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the "groove rock" band Sedona.

If that isn't your cup of tea but folk rock is, JoAnn Vaccaro is having a CD release party at Java's (16 Gibb St.)

If that doesn't float your boat, The Dryden Theater's Mondo series continues at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) with The Terror of Tiny Town. There's nothing like all-midget entertainment.

If none of that waxes your wick, Milestones (170 East Ave.) is again hosting Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest with Road Kill Karma versus Bad Seed.

Fireworks at Frontier Field at 7:35.

Unless something else comes up, dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

For those of you with good posture in tiny uncomfortable seats, The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Gone with the Wind -- all 222 minutes of it.

At last breaking my Centers trend for the past couple weeks, Three Flights Up will be playing again at Spenders (1600 Lyell Ave.) I was pleased that last time they played they were just as tight and entertaining as when I saw them last year.

If comedy is more up your alley tonight (or Saturday or Sunday) Chris Edgerly will be performing with Doug Berryhill at 8 and 10:45 at the horrible venue Comix Cafe (3450 Winton Pl.)

If animal music is your thing, Zoobrew with Better Days and Galaxy will be at the Seneca Park Zoo (2222 St. Paul St.) from 5 to 9. Better Days plays some great covers of modern music, although I'd wager 3FU is better.

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

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon. Yes, O'Bagelo's is open on Saturday, although John said he doesn't know about Sunday yet.

Starting today is the Sterling Renaissance Festival (15431 Farden Rd., Sterling, N.Y.) It continues through August 13.

Best pick for the evening is the original Shaft at The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.)

Anyway, at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) tonight, the band that brought us I'm Considering a Move to Memphis (little did I know -- they just mentioned it on WBER this morning) Colorblind James Experience will perform.

Meanwhile at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.), the really cool rockabilly band Krypton-88 will be playing.

Finally, Kage and Anita are hosting their summer Kage and Anita's Lawnchair Theatre. I doubt it'll be rained out this weekend, but be sure to check the page just in case.

Remarkably, and probably due to the holiday weekend, there's actually something to do on Sunday for a change: Ten Typing Monkeys will be at Norton's Pub (1730 Goodman St.) This is Anita's friend's band so ask her what they're like. ;-)

Shiny Phosphor Thing:

  • Futurama: Lesser of Two Evils - The Professor hires a Bender look-alike to guard a jeweled tiara for the Miss Universe contest, but it disappears.
  • King of the Hill: Bill of Sales - Peggy becomes involved in a pyramid scam and recruits Bill as her star sales representative.
  • Simpsons: Tree House of Horror X - Homer causes an incident at the nuclear power plant; radiation from X-rays gives Bart and Lisa superpowers; Flanders is killed.
  • Malcolm in the Middle: Sleepover - When Malcolm and Stevie sneak out to an arcade at night, Stevie's wheelchair is stolen.
