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:
mmm...bad meat Russian words
  • Superstar: The reviews are in and here's what people had to say:
    • I loved it--it's a refreshing change from "Chicken Soup for the Soul" on PAX.
    • Better than Battleship Potemkin II: Sergei Eisenstein Killed My Baby.
    • Molly Shannon at her best!
    • It was better than cats. I'm going to lick it clean again and again.
    • Tom Green steals the show!
    • I begged to be killed on the spot!
  • Molly: George Malley (John Travolta) is a small town average guy who has an operation which turns him into Molly (Elizabeth Shue), a genius with psychic powers. Adventures in Babysitting meets Flowers for Algernon.
  • Random Hearts: Although they were perfectly content with their lives, Edward Davis (Harrison Ford) and Vivien Simpson (Kristin Scott Thomas) discover that things are not always what they seem when their respective spouses die mysteriously in a plane crash. Based on a true ingredients list for hot-dogs.


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!


Eat at O'Bagelo's. Noon.

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.


As usual, I'll cheat and just mention South Park at Rohrbach's at 315 Gregory Street. Showtime at 10:00. Free Cheesy Poofs.

If I had $1,000,000...
If I had $1,000,000, I'd buy...

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.
