Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 39. Twin Inches
I really gotta wrap this up quick so I can see "Sexual Harassment Panda" down at Rohrbach's tonight (Wednesday). I hope you all can read fast.
Hey, I learned a new word...baize. It's the green felt-like covering on gambling tables. Exciting, eh? Knowing is half the battle.
By the way, Steven Wright will be at the Auditorium Center on October 20. Christine Lavin will be at the 12 Corners Coffee House on October 17--free, but tickets required. Talk amongst yourselves.
Movies this week:
Karaoke at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton.) Interested? How about if I mention that among the regulars are members from the alternative rock band White Cotton Panties and the ska band 5Head? Now how much would you pay? $1? $1 Canadian? No, free!
For those with more discerning taste, Buddhahood apparently
regularly plays on Thursdays now at Red
(171 St. Paul.)
Also, 10,000 Maniacs will be at Borders in Henrietta from 8 to 9.
Mike Dambra, Dick Canty, and Dan "Polish Burglar Gloves" Liberto will be
doing a stand-up comedy show at The Diplomat
(1 Diplomat Way)
at 9pm. It's a lovely part of town, really...NOT! Friggin' comedians!
I may miss it depending on whether Bob (not The Bob) is moving.
Remember that today is the RIT Brick City Festival. The snail
mail ad says Jon Stewart will be there tonight (I don't know if
tickets are even available) but they sent me an email that said
it would be Colin Quinn. Could CAB still be a bunch of bungling
idiots ten years later?
Ben Folds Five, Harro East
(400 Andrews Street)
7pm, $18 advanced, $20 at the door.
Nothing. The City lists four things, none of which seem all
that appealing to me.
Token Joe's has been sold to new management, so this will
be the last of the open mic comedy nights for a while. It's
at 10:00 p.m. as usual and Dan Liberto hosts as usual.
It's at Token Joe's at
150 Andrews Street
As usual, I'll cheat and just mention South Park at Rohrbach's at 315 Gregory Street. Showtime at 10:00. Free Cheesy Poofs.
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.
