JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #99: End of Hurricanes

So now Thanksgiving is over and we're into the Christmas rush all tripped out on tryptophan. It's almost too late for online shopping...yeesh! Where does the year go. As I'm sure you all want to buy me things, I've loaded up my Wish List at Amazon.com.

I was so happy that on the November 28 episode of the Daily Show on Comedy Central did a segment on why BooBerry was available in only a couple cities in America. Stephen Colbert hosted the segment and interviewed Taymie Behrens who said she once drove 2,600 miles with six boxes of BooBerry. While I commend her determination, I've found BooBerry to be available within 500 miles of Rochester, and even closer to New York. Among the things they mentioned was the description of "Boo" with his "trademark bow-tie and nipple piercings," a fact I hadn't really considered.

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:
  • Amber Roll consisting of smoked salmon, raspberry, cream cheese, almond butter, topped with wasabi roe
  • FANI Roll consisting of tempura shrimp, pesto and tomato
  • Pinchy Roll consisting of lobster, Japanese mayonnaise, cucumber and avocado

It should be a slow week because it's also First Friday's at The Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave., near Goodman St.) with the bands Eleven Foot Seven and Gregory Paul from 5 to 8.

Tonight's best bet is the CD Release party for 5Head's new CD, Casa Del Fuego. It's still the best bet despite being at the ever anti-social Milestones (170 East Ave.) starting around 10. I got to hear most of the CD when Steve brought it to the Krown and it sounded great. Of course all the songs are very familiar from having heard them live.

If you're not into that, the groove-rock band Deep Banana Blackout will be at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.)

Cabaret is here this weekend with the performance tonight at 8 at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.)

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

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

RIT is hosting the Big Shot where they light a large area with flashlights and stuff and take a long exposure picture. This year's photo shoot will feature the lighting of the The Liberty Pole (Liberty Pole Wy.) starting at 5:30 p.m. downtown with a reception following at the Hyatt (125 East Main St.)

Meanwhile -- out and about -- is Birdcircuit at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:30. There's a $2 cover.

For contrast this weekend, is Mean Red Spiders with The Priests and The Grinders at the sedated Annie Murphy's Fiddlers Green (4653 Lake Ave.)

The big event tonight is at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) from 6:30 to 9:30. Barry and Maria will teach you how to make three different roll styles: outside-in (traditional); inside-out (modern); and hand rolls with a variety of cooked and raw ingredients. Only trouble is it's $55 without alcohol and $65 with alcohol which if you think of it as a class, it's cheap, but as a meal it's expensive.

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