Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 33. A Third Shy of The Final Insult
Through the magic of the Internet, I've decided to try to make up web pages for each week instead of the e-mails I've been usually sending out. Anyhow, I figured I could add some fun content as well to spice up the messages.
Movies this week (links courtesy The Internet Movie Database, duh):
The New York State fair starts today and runs through next week. Tonight at the grandstand is the Beach Boys (known for the hit song "Kokomo" from the movie Cocktail.)
There's always the Laser Light Show at High Falls. Perhaps you've got
that Erie Canal song stuck in your head, or maybe "Centerfield" and you've
just got to have it played through to get it out. (Damn you, voices!)
Those of you who receive Shaun Nelson's occasional funny spams be sure to wish him a happy 24th birthday.
If you're a fan of juxtaposition, Beale Street Bandwagon, a Dixieland band, will be playing at Tonic on East Avenue. Maybe it's because both Tonic and a hillbilly's house have corrugated fiberglass. ...That's not to imply, of course, that dixieland means hillbillies, or that hillbillies have modern building materials.
Browsing through Freetime, I see the Shagadelics (60's cover band themed around Austin Powers) will be playing on the Roof at The Centers at High Falls. I didn't know you could go on the roof...you'd think they would have just made the place bigger.
I gotta believe there's an "Alive At Five" somewhere in town. I'll
probably try to find it at the MAG or elsewhere.
Noon. O'Bagelo's. Eat.
The Blue Angels will demonstrate to you pinko commies just how much it would suck to piss them off. Thankfully, it's free unless you want to see the ground air show...ground air-show? Jets and stuff will mar our skyline (and hopefully not mar our groundline [unless I have my camcorder]) all weekend.
In the afternoon and up until 9:00 p.m. at Long Acres Farm (in Macedon) is the Amazing Maize Maze. It actually seems kinda fun, but when you try to describe it, it comes out like, "Well you get lost in corn..." If you go, try not to disturb any mazaedia, and I don't know if it'll cost any mazuma.
Ska is generally kinda fun to listen to, and there's a couple bands playing at Milestones. 5 Head is having a CD release party with Snmnmnm (Essenemmenemmenemm?).
This just in:
I think my parents are going to stop up today. I'll be busy keeping them amused, but hey--I'm taking Monday off so I'll try to stay up late. :-)
For the rest of you, there's Israeli Folk Dancing at the Jewish Community Center near where Edgewood Road crosses the Erie Canal Lock #33 at 490 feet above sea level.
If you have an extra six or so bucks to throw away, you can go to
a shack at the Dome and look at computer stuff at Internet prices.
Ooh...Karaoke at Beale Street. 'Nuff said.

Milestones tends to bring pretty good acts, so just for kicks, we could try Andy Stochansky who will be playing Alternative there.
Last week's title was in error. It should have been "#31. Spinal column hoedown." My GPS flaked and I couldn't tell when I was, am, nor will be. The staff deeply regrets the error.
The archives show the numbering is way screwed up anyway--there were two #18's, apparently due to a Y1.9938356K computer bug. The title for #32 should have been "Yeah I'm g, free fallin'..." for those keeping score.
The part that isn't very new follows:
For the last few months I've been having lunch at O'Bagelo's on State Street on Saturday at 12:00. The same people who have been going have been coming back, so I guess I'm not on crack about the food being good.
I'll be there at 12:00. For the few of you who haven't been there, it's on State Street between the Federal Building and Frontier Field. It's south of 490 and north of Andrews on the west side of the street (i.e., across from West Group on the east side.) Their sign is flush against the building so it's a little hard to see unless you're looking. They've got a variety of sandwiches on bagels, fresh bread or fresh rolls, and some soups. There are some veggie stuff too, but sometimes they don't make the fried eggplant very early.
Anyhow, RSVP, call, e-mail, or just show up.
