Weekly Rochester Events #444: Tilt With a Small Eye
Thursday, July 12, 2007
First of all, I dropped the "Movies" section because I got tired of trying to decipher the calendar at The Little (240 East Ave.) Well, not so much "decipher" as "determine what will actually be playing on Friday". I put in all the events for the week on Monday and like clockwork, the Little will announce the opening of at least one new film that gets postponed. On Monday — of the same week that the films are opening on Friday. Heck, even Johnny's Irish Pub (1382 Culver Rd., still smoke-free) is booked at least a month out and they're generally accurate. I don't understand why the Little can't get it together.
Anyway, last Wednesday was Independence Day and I opted to host a picnic at my house with Ali. Well, it ended up being more of a hang-out-on-the-porch kind of party because it rained for the first time in a month, but I think everyone had fun. Afterward several of us headed to The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) then walked past Wadsworth Square Park (Broadway St and Marshall St) to the end of Marshall St., through the parking lot, and under the South Clinton exit ramp. There's a small patch of grass that's an excellent place to view the fireworks.
Thursday I headed out to see Ali in Canandaigua so we went to Peppers Deli and Pasta (101 E. Lake Rd., Canandaigua) for dinner. The Buffalo chicken salad wasn't all that great, but overall it was a nice time. Afterward we once again enjoyed delicious homemade gelato at The Muar House Cafe (169 Lakeshore Dr., Canandaigua). On Friday we headed on a little trip. Ali's friend's boyfriend's parents have a camp on Waneta Lake and so the four of us headed there for the weekend. They also have a boat. We got settled in and played board games for a while that night.
On Saturday, we got out and went to Watkins Glen State Park (S. Franklin St. and Old Corning Rd., Watkins Glen) and hiked through it. It's really quite impressive — a stream carved through shale and slate, leaving a wild array of odd-shaped waterfalls and such. For lunch we stopped at Mr. Chicken (106 S. Franklin St., Watkins Glen). Overall I wasn't impressed. The chicken that Ali and I had was good, but the others got chicken nuggets which were just Cisco-special mystery meat. The sides were okay — the macaroni salad was heavy with mayo, but the mashed potatoes had chicken gravy. You win some, you lose some.
On the way back to camp we hit some wineries: Lakewood Vineyards (4024 State Route 14, Watkins Glen), Fulkerson Winery (5576 State Route 14, Dundee), Glenora Wine Cellars (5435 State Route 14, Dundee), and one more that I don't recall the name of (they didn't give us a tasting sheet). We got back in the early evening so we went out to swim on the lake and play on the paddleboat. We broke out some of the wine and got on the boat to see the fireworks. It was excellent: from the middle of Waneta Lake (42.462125N, 77.103853W), fireworks were shooting off from every point on the shore. You really couldn't tell which were the "official" ones because the illegal ones were so impressive.
On Sunday we had a picnic on the boat which was pretty fun. I felt like we were 1970's grown-ups, hanging out on a 1970's boat and listening to 1970's rock on the radio. That afternoon Ali and I headed home and ended up having dinner at Eddie O'Brien's Grille and Bar (182 S. Main St., Canandaigua) which was once again very good.
That was pretty much it for the week ... short and sweet. And, surprisingly, no shows. How odd ...

This page is Jason Olshefsky's list of things to do in Rochester, NY and the surrounding region (including nearby towns Irondequoit, Webster, Penfield, Pittsford, Victor, Henrietta, Gates, Chili, Greece, and Charlotte, and occasionally other places in Monroe County and the Western New York region.) It is updated every week with daily listings for entertainment, activities, performances, movies, music, bands, comedy, improv, poetry, storytelling, lectures, discussions, debates, theater, plays, and generally fun things to do.
Music events are usually original bands with occasional cover bands and DJ's with musical styles including punk, emo, ska, swing, rock, rock-and-roll, alternative, metal, jazz, blues, noise band, experimental music, folk, acoustic, and "world-beat."
Events listed take place during the day, in the evenings, or as part of the city's nightlife as listed.
Although I'm reluctant to admit it, it is a Rochester blog and I'm essentially blogging about Rochester events.
I also tend to express opinions, review past events, make reviews, speak of philosophy or of a philosophical nature, discuss humanity and creativity.
Oh, and it's spelled JayceLand with no space and a capital L, not Jayce Land, Jaycee Land, Jace Land, Jase Land, Joyce Land, Jayce World, Jayceeland, Jaceland, Jaseland, Joyceland, Jayceworld, Jayceeworld, Jaceworld, Jaseworld, nor Joyceworld. (Now if you misspell it in some search engine, you at least get a shot at finding it.)
It's also not to be confused with
or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator.
