Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 35. Your Weekly Stratopause

Ok, this isn't going to be pretty. I'm on my seventy-fourth Bacardi and Bombay, it's 3:45 in the morning, and I just feel the need to inform you all of what is to come. I hope you appreciate the pain (ow, my liver) and suffering (succotash) I go through for you! :-)


Movies opening this week:

  • Love Stinks-French Stewart tries to get laid with tragic results.
  • Stigmata-Unsavory girl gets stigmata; becomes messenger to God. Although this description does the movie no justice, I'd say this is the most promising pick this week.
  • Stir of Echoes of Echoes of Echoes-Kevin Bacon gets hypnotized at a party and gets the ability to realize his neighborhood is really weird.


Don't forget to wish Jan a happy 28th birthday. And remember girls, 28 is 14 times two, so be sure to bring a friend. As such, we'll probably feed him or something tonight.

As for later, Julia's Star will be playing at Milestones (170 East Avenue.) Mind you, I don't know what kind of music she/they play, but in case you need a reason to see some new music, Snmnmnm is opening. Besides, it's only $2 according to The City paper.


Umm...umm...umm... Not much for Friday.

First, there's the Splashdown CD release party at Milestones.

In desperation, I'll once again mention the laser show at High Falls. Sometime around 9:30 or so. Maybe a trip to Fuel at 104 Platt Street for...uhh...fuel, I guess.


Noon. Return to O'Bagelo's which is now open (again) to eat.

In the evening, an interested party may be interested to know The Quitters (with The Thunder Gods) will be playing at The Rose & Crown at 875 Monroe Avenue. Interesting.

If you continue to be hungry throughout the day, there's always the ever exciting Henrietta Company #1 Corn & Sausage Roast from 3 to 11 at the Dome Center.

Who said they were gone forever? There's actually a demolition derby at the Caledonia Fairgrounds at 310 Leicester Street in Caledonia.

Perhaps a demolition derby will break out at the Firetruck Show & Muster [what's a muster?] at Hilton Firemen's Field at 135 South Avenue in Hilton. Heh heh...that'd be cool.


Ok, I demonstrated last weekend that it's not possible to find something interesting to do in Rochester on an arbitrary Sunday. However, at the Geneseo Airport (off Rt. 63 in Geneseo, you know...) there's the (and I quote), "Hag Fly-In / Ox Roast." What the hell does that mean? I don't know but it is something to do, and it does not disprove that there's nothing to do in Rochester.

Of note, the last MST3K episode to be shown is tonight. It's called "Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders," and it has been delayed due to rights.


If you think Sunday's are bad, try Mondays.

The best I can do is an extra special Strangers With Candy. Jerri joins the debate team but will have to endure dangerous physical training for the big competition.


At 9:30 p.m. (more like 10:00 lately) Dan Liberto hosts the open mic comedy night at Token Joe's. It's getting better lately, and as fall...uhh...falls, the professionals tend to return home and do some free shows. Hey, you never know...'cept it doesn't cost even a buck.

The mystical number 2.50 is written on a cooler at Token Joe's


Choices, choices. On the one hand, there's the "Pure Kona Poetry Series" with Cate Smith at Moonbeans at 696 University Avenue.

On the other hand, the kindly bartender at Rohrbach's on 315 Gregory Street switches the TV's to Comedy Central and pumps up the volume to watch South Park which runs during-and-around the ten-o'clock hour (well, the show is technically at ten exactly, but the drinking and food occurs elsewhen.)

Lowercase Numbers
Do you believe in lowercase numbers?

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.
