    This morning starting around 8 a.m. in the cafeteria overlooking the arboretum in Bausch and Lomb (140 Stone St.) is The Artists' Breakfast Group meeting ... anyone interested in art or creativity is invited.

    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Marti, dupa craciun (Tuesday, After Christmas) starting at 8 p.m. (a little programming joke from Lori Donnelly). According to the Eastman House calendar, "married and the father of a young girl, Paul (Mimi Branescu) has been carrying on a long-term affair with his daughter's dentist. As the holidays approach and the cracks in his marriage start to show, he realizes that he has a painful decision to make. A masterful depiction of a marriage in crisis, Tuesday, After Christmas avoids judgment in favor of empathetic observation, capturing its trio of lived-in performances with graceful, uninterrupted long takes and a knowing sense of the human comedy."

    Laura C. Forster will be at Abilene Bar and Lounge (153 Liberty Pole Wy., formerly Tara) starting around 9 p.m. [source: Abilene website]

    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Palm Beach Story starting at 8 p.m. Once again from the Eastman House calendar, "modern marriages should be frankly adult and nothing is franker than Claudette Colbert leaving behind gimcrack husband Joel McCrea for the promise of a shiny new Florida millionaire. The raucous Ale and Quail Club stands in her way, and the aloof squareness of new beau Rudy Vallee doesn't help either. [Preston Sturges'] fastest, most unhinged film, and for all that a moving lesson in romance." [source: Dryden Theater calendar] [all ages]

    JayceLand Pick The Bug JarMySpace link (219 Monroe Ave.) will be hosting clever acoustic soloist Lauren O'ConnellMySpace link, nice sounding acourtic duo Dave and Marrissa, The Wallpaper Singers, and Archimedes starting around 9 p.m. [source: Bug Jar calendar]

    Today at 12:00 p.m. is a meeting of The Brown Bag Book Discussion Group in the Literature Division's Study Room at The Rochester Public Library (115 South Ave.) [source: Rochester Public Library calendar] [all ages]

    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 Jake's World or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator. While I'm on the topic of keywords for search engines, this update includes information for Thursday, December 22, 2011 (Thu, Dec 22, 2011, 12/22/2011, or 12/22/11) Friday, December 23, 2011 (Fri, Dec 23, 2011, 12/23/2011, or 12/23/11) Saturday, December 24, 2011 (Sat, Dec 24, 2011, 12/24/2011, or 12/24/11) Sunday, December 25, 2011 (Sun, Dec 25, 2011, 12/25/2011, or 12/25/11) Monday, December 26, 2011 (Mon, Dec 26, 2011, 12/26/2011, or 12/26/11) Tuesday, December 27, 2011 (Tue, Dec 27, 2011, 12/27/2011, or 12/27/11) and Wednesday, December 28, 2011 (Wed, Dec 28, 2011, 12/28/2011, or 12/28/11).
