JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #95. Theses, 2 Days Ago (and 483 Years)

Time is running out -- They Might Be Giants will be here next Friday at the Alexandra Palestra in the Goergen Athletic Center at University of Rochester (River Campus Map.) Tickets are on sale now at University of Rochester common market, Record Archive (1394 Mount Hope Ave.) Lakeshore Record Exchange (370 Park Ave.) and Tickets.com.

This past weekend I was looking to pick up FrameMaker for Dummies to brush up for a job I'm trying to get. I found it on Amazon but figured I'd just get it in town over the weekend -- how hard could it be, right? Well darn right impossible. I first tried CompUSA, then Borders but the parking lot was completely full. Then I went to Barnes & Noble, Staples, Office Depot, OfficeMax, MediaPlay, Computer Renaissance, CompUSA again ... all to no avail. I then tried Maplewood Books (884 Dewey Ave., at Driving Park Ave.) They have every computer book imaginable, but they are closed on Saturdays. Now well into my third hour driving around -- if I knew it was this much of a problem I would have just called these places -- I thought I'd try Borders again. Well guess what. Borders has everything. They've got the biggest computer book section next to Maplewood, and including FrameMaker for Dummies. At least I feel I live up to the book's namesake.

Speaking of dummies, it's election time again. I stopped by the election office right when Rick Lazio was there ... well someone else was speaking at the time, but most importantly everyone was milling around outside so it was way easier to get a copy of the ballot. I thought I'd fill you all in on who's up for what in my district. Of course, most stuff will apply to everyone in Rochester, less so to everyone in New York, and so on.

Dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) This week's specials, straight from the mailing list's mouth are:
  • New York-New York Roll (improved.. can you believe it?) consisting of crab, seaweed salad, Japanese mayo, onion crunchies, wrapped in eel with unagi sauce and sesame seeds
  • Sunrise Roll consisting of tempura whitefish, cream cheese, sundried tomatoes with Japanese mayo
  • Spicy Tuna Roll 2 squared consisting of spicy tuna with tomato and asparagus drenched in HOT CHILI SAUCE
It'll probably be a quiet night because tonight is also First Friday's from 5 to 8 at Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave., near Goodman St.) featuring Hollywood Al & The Mix and Jack Edward Smith.

Firstly, lastly, and middle-ly, Three Flights Up is back, sadly at Milestones (170 East Ave.) from 10 to 11:30 opening for The New Park Ave. Band.

Aside from that, there is apparently nothing great that I've seen before.
