Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 91. Like Flynn

Oh, let's see ... last weekend I went to a relatively cool party thrown by Kali from (among others) Yahoo! clubs, RochesterNYFriends. It was on the roof of her apartment building and the view was good, the weather held, and at eight or so people showed up.

In other news, I decided to revamp my home page. The colors are still the same but the order has changed to protect the innocent. I'm trying to look tastier to search engines so I put the stuff that gets updated more often toward the top. This is handy for people to just look around because the most current stuff is most interesting, but they still have the chance to go back in time.

I checked into the DVD sale at Rowe Photographic (1737 Mt. Hope Ave.) and, well, it was two weeks ago. Apparently they sold out the lot in about an hour at $10 each.

Dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) If Julie's theory is right, it will be a nice quiet night because there's another First Friday At The MAG, at Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave., near Goodman St.) of course.

Of interest is True Blue from 6 to 9 then Colorblind James Experience at 10 at Beale Street Cafe (689 South Ave.)

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

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

Update!: O'Bagelo's, is closed today and all weekend for the holiday, so in the last minute, we changed plans to meet at Mount Hope Diner (1511 Mt. Hope Ave.) Hope y'all can make it!

Tonight I'll probably try to get over to The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) for The Quitters CD Release Party (their CD is The Quitters' Second CD) with guests The Grinders and Paulie Rocco. I assume the whole schebang starts around 10.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is The Chinchillas for $2 at the door starting around 10:30. I think I saw them once and I think they were alright, but it's a little furry fuzzy.

Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) has U.S. Falls with Dutch Elm probably starting around 11:00-ish.

Finally, the good modern-rock cover band Better Days will be at Frankie & Louie's Bayou Bar & Grill (The Centers at High Falls) maybe as early as 9-ish. There may be a myriad of cover charges there, though.

Also, note that the over-hyped musical paying homage to the style of director/choreographer Bob Fosse, Fosse starts today at Auditorium Center (875 Main St E.)
