Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 86. See You In 2062

The New York State Fair (I-690 near Route 695, Syracuse, N.Y.) continues through Labor Day. Labor Day, well, is. Moxy Früvous is at Milestones again on Thursday and Friday. Buddhahood is out-and-about again on Friday also. Not too shabby, all things considered.

  • Highlander: Endgame - Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) finally face off to see who gets the others head.
  • Saving Grace - Marijuana saves the day in more ways than one. A must see if you can't get enough puns about the various names for pot and joints.
  • Whipped - Three buddies from college gain respect from one another by picking up as many women as possible, only to go thorough a period of group personal growth when they are confronted with the real possibility of trying to all have sex with the same woman.

First, at the dank Milestones (170 East Ave.) is Moxy Früvous for the second of three small shows. Tonight is all-ages starting at 9:00 p.m. Friday is 18-and-over and starts at 10:00 p.m.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have Snaggletooth starting around 10:30-ish.

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

Dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

Don't forget that at the dreary Milestones (170 East Ave.) is Moxy Früvous for the last of three small shows. Tonight is 18-and-over starting at 10:00 p.m.

Unfortunately the only thing I'd rather see than Früvous tonight is on the roof of The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) -- Buddhahood will be making an ever-so-rare appearance.

O'Bagelo's, is closed for the labor day weekend, so I suggest we try the Corn Hill Cookery (321 Exchange Blvd.) Again someplace I haven't been, but I've seen a good review. It's menu is described as eclectic international. Meet there at noon.

The "big" local thing as far as I'm concerned is the blues and rock open jam at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) probably starting around 11:00-ish.

As mysteriously as Electric Light Orchestra disbanded, ELO Part 2 banded and will be playing at the Cole Muffler Court at the New York State Fair (I-690 near Route 69, Syracuse, N.Y.) at 4 and 8.

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at The Blue Room (293 Alexander St.) has proved to be at least modestly entertaining -- mostly the not dealing with the karaoke part, but Julie's usually there too and we both know a handful of singers.

For those who aren't working tomorrow, Tickle the Taint, Perfect World, and Uncle Plum will all be playing the same songs from 4:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. at the roof of The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race)

However, I know a bunch of y'all are going to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire (Mount Hope Estate and Winery, 2684 Lebanon Rd., Manheim, PA, directions) to visit with Phil, Beth, Mike, and Tina. Meeting time is at 10:00 a.m. so be sure to hit the road around 4:00 a.m.

Never Twice the Same Color:

  • Futurama: Mother's Day - Mom, the founder of Mom's Friendly Robot Company, demands world domination on Mother's Day.
  • King of the Hill: Nancy's Boys - Nancy and Dale rekindle the romance in their marriage, leaving Nancy's former lover John Redcorn out in the cold.
  • Simpsons: Faith Off - Bart is convinced he's a faith healer after he helps a revivalist extract Homer's head from a bucket.
  • Malcolm in the Middle: Francis Escapes - After his phone privileges are taken away, a lovesick Francis leaves military school to see his girlfriend Bebe.

Trivia Quiz continues at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.)

But the make-you-feel-good-about-yourself event is the Muscular Dystrophy Benefit -- American Roots Jamboree at Fat Moe's (4419 Dewey Ave.) Chanka Chank, Leroy & Canyon Rangers, Colt, Bill Hackett, Boon Farm, and Rhythm Method will be starting at 6:00 p.m.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is the comedy thing again. The acts are pretty good the first time you see them but tend to wear a bit. I have a feeling this week will be a pretty good show which means I've jinxed it and it will be one of their worst.

Open mic poetry at Java's (16 Gibb Street) starting around 9:30.

Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) becomes slightly tolerable with the comedy improv troupe Nuts and Bolts at 8.

CNN Almanac: 2000-August-31

On this day ... August 31



Link of the Week:
KHIH Radio - This is a bit of a round-about way to go (but necessary). KHIH Radio is a Denver radio station that has a link to Alerts2Go.com who in turn offer a service of having daily weather and news sent to your pager. Alerts2Go.com actually serves media-sources like radio stations, providing them with the tools to have an electronic weather forecast, presumably in exchange for money. The great part is they condense a three-day forecast into under 40 characters -- i.e. "Th_pc_90/64" for the day, sky condition (partly cloudy), high, and low. They can also e-mail you a pretty bigger version of a 5-day forecast.
