JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #191: All White Sixel

I took my birthday off from work and things went okay. I made it to the walking tour of Rochester which started around City Hall (30 Church St.) and worked its way around to the east then south then back around. It's $5 and provides some interesting things even I didn't know. I guess I'd marginally recommend it, but a decent trip to the library might get you farther. Anyway, on the way there I broke the crank on my bike.

Under any circumstances, this is a nuisance at best. In this case it was a bit more of a hindrance. In the past, I'd break the threads out by the pedal, leaving the stump of the crank that I can kick with my foot and still ride. This time I broke the crank at its thickest part--right where it comes out of the frame. I tried hooking my toes around the pedal and managed to make some distance up that way, but I mostly just had to skate it along like a velocipede. In the end, it only took an hour to get home (as opposed to about 25 minutes to get out there.)

In the evening I didn't have much different of a Friday night out except that I was fed a couple shots at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) from my friends, and my girlfriend serendipitously cut her trip short due to an injury and I managed to play the Birthday Card (not a Hallmark product) and get her to come out too.

I'm apparently so amazingly strong that I can break a three-quarter-inch thick bicycle crank that I found in the garbage.
What else ... oh yeah ... so I didn't get it for my birthday, but what could I expect--I'm just gonna have to suck it up and buy Mac OS X 10.2 "Jaguar" myself. Steve Jobs may be a prick for not delivering a finished version of OS X 10.1, but there are way too many cool features to live without. Ugh. More hemorrhaged cash. Oh yeah, and speaking of shamefully deceptive links that get me credit at Amazon.com, I bought a Sabatier 7-piece Knife Set. All of the Sabatier stuff is on sale (see the ad on the right side) ... I don't think it's absolute top quality stuff, but it's probably better than the set I have now that I got for free when I signed up for a checking account at Manufacturer's Hanover Trust twelve-odd years ago.

Hmm ... what else ... uhh ... Oh yeah. I blew it bad last Saturday. It turns out that Lorraine's Food Factory (777 Culver Rd.) is closed for the holiday weekend. Who knew? They're in a new location and I just assumed they'd be there on Saturday. I was bummed. This weekend we'll be back at O'Bagelo's (165 State Street) but we can try Lorraine's Food Factory (777 Culver Rd.) some other weekend. In retrospect, I'd like to try somplace we can eat outside ... I think the end September will be nice.

Feel free to check out the all-new Lux Lounge (666 South Ave.) which is Karrie's new bar (former bartender at The Bug Jar and freelance photographer--her work is frequently in City Paper.) She's got a beautiful place going. It's got the usual hip-bar tchotchke plus the back yard has about a dozen picnic tables and a hammock. Her warm, easy-going style is really conveyed nicely. It's actually open all week, but Friday is the "official" grand opening.

Supposedly, Mercury Star Lounge (171 St. Paul, formerly Red) will have Random Order MP3 link starting around 10.

In case you're shut in tonight (or tomorrow), check out I'm going to make a drug with my mind on cable public access (channel 15 on Time Warner) at 11:30 p.m. featuring Pisspot the Bunny interviewing local and out-of-town bands.

In case you're curious, it's Alla Turca at Lola Bistro and Bar (630 Monroe Ave.) tonight and every Friday from 10:30 to 2.

Not ready for mainstream Tonight from 8 to 10 is an Open-Mic Comedy Night at Daily Perks (389 Gregory St.) While once it was a workshop type of environment, the comics now have to force that behavior ... by default it's a place to try out new stuff.
