Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 82. A Man, A Plan, A Canal: Panama

You are on your own this week as I'll be away. I was going to do a split-screen view of the Rochester/Denver scene, but as it turns out more than half the events I selected four days ago out of Westword (Denver's equivalent to Freetime Magazine) have been removed. I guess I'll have to wait to get there to figure out what's going on.

  • Coyote Ugly - Sexy women make money at the Coyote Ugly, the latest NYC nightclub, by being sexy stereotypical women.
  • Hollow Man - Whenever Kevin Bacon turns invisible, everyone's Bacon Number becomes a singularity and chaos ensues.
  • Space Cowboys - Aging actors getting fewer roles than in the past play aging astronauts getting fewer missions than in the past.

From 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. is Wednesday Nights at High Falls at the corner of Commercial St. near Jillian's (Corner of Commercial St. and Mill St.) Tonight it's Special Ed.

Later, you may be capable of going to The Colosseum Caffe (262 Park Ave.) to see Jazz with Erika. The Colosseum is a weird place, and heck, this woman spells Erica with a K so it must be good.

Over at Milestones (170 East Ave.) is the weirdly-named Sleepy Labeef with the weirdly-named rock-ish rockabilly band Krypton 88.

In the mean time and continuing through Sunday is the comedy stylings of Claudia Sherman with Jamie Lissow. I've seen Jamie a few times and he's pretty good, so just on the opening act alone it should be a pretty good show.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have what should be a good show with Eddie Nebula and the Plague.

Starting at "dusk", Muppets From Space will be shown at Highland Bowl (South Ave. at Robinson Dr.)

Milestones (170 East Ave.) is hosting more groove rock with Addison Groove Project and Uncle Sammy

For everyone who's in town, dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

Milestones (170 East Ave.) is having Frantic Flattops with the weirdly-named (wait I've used that before -- but if the shoe fits ... I guess) The Dung Beatles.

If you're into doing something a little different, check out the zydeco band Nathan & The Zydeco Cha Chas at Empire Brewing Company (300 State St.)

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

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon. Try it Jayce-free.

If you eat light at John's, you can top off at the Taste of Rochester near The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) from noon to 11 p.m. Overlapping that is the Flour City Brewers' Fest from 5 to 11.

If you missed them yesterday, Krypton 88 will be again at Milestones (170 East Ave.) tonight.

Meanwhile over at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) is the wildcard's of the weekend Flava Country with Sweatin' Like Nixon. Note that bands at Richmonds generally start around 11 instead of 10.

WBER night at Red (171 St. Paul.)

If you didn't eat light at John's yesterday, you can try again today at the Taste of Rochester near The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) from noon to 8 p.m.

Instead of re-runs this Sunday as well, see The Devil-Doll at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) You old MST'ers explain to the others, ok?

Orthicon Receiver:

  • Futurama: How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back - When Hermes goes on vacation, an attractive bureaucrat takes his place at Planet Express.
  • 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: Saddlesore Galactica - Bart and Homer discover that horse racing is a treacherous business after they rescue a horse from the state fair.
  • Malcolm in the Middle: Shame - Malcolm is guilt-ridden after beating up a school bully who turns out to be just a 7-year-old brat.

Although it may seem impossible, Alexandra Whitman is marrying Dan Taylor. Party to follow all night before hell freezes over, 2+2=5, and everything else you know becomes wrong too. :-)

Westword is basically Denver's equivalent to Freetime Magazine. It's a bit nicer than Freetime's site becuase you can search it a lot easier. Oh, and the whole thing isn't one big advertisement either.
