Turkey Day...I'm out of town for a couple days...Eat lots.

Karaoke at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) persists. Last week it was much better than the Wine Brats thing. It pays to show up way late.

Meanwhile, Buddhahood is at Red (171 St. Paul.)


Karaoke at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.) is hosted by DJ (KJ?) Sugar Bear. This is currently the "premium" Karaoke with the White Cotton Panties crew making it all better. I don't know if they'll be here owing to the holiday, but since they live locally I wouldn't completely rule it out.


O'Bagelo's is clo'sed today, yesterday, the day before, and tomorrow. See y'all next week.

Treehouse Cinema's Movie Night remains, however--tonight and every Saturday night at 9:30 p.m. at The Treehouse (aka The Strong-Todd Carriage House at 693 East Ave.)

This week it's... Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control - An amazing, very humorous, and very profound documentary about four men discussing their jobs: a liontamer, an inventor of artificially intelligent robots, a gardener who sculpts animals out of shrubbery, and a biologist who studies naked mole rats. A must see.

If you're up for something even more classic, The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Avenue) is showing Citizen Kane at 8:00 p.m.


Tonights FOX animation block is:

King of the Hill: Not in My Back Hoe - Jealous of Hank's new friend Hal, Bill and Dale devise a dirty trick.

Simpsons: Take My Wife, Sleaze - When Homer forms a motorcycle gang with his friends, Marge is kidnapped by a rival gang. With guest voices of John Goodman, Henry Winkler and rock band NRBQ.

Futurama: Brannigan, Begin Again - After Zapp Brannigan is court-martialed, he is hired at Planet Express where he tries to overthrow Leela's leadership.


Tonight is the annual awards and holiday dinner for Camera Rochester. Like all the other Mondays, you'll have to find something to do.


Comedy returns to Tuesdays. This time they're at the Colosseum Caffe (262 Park Ave.) starting around 9:00. There's a museum next door which apparently has beaucoup parking.

I've been going the last few weeks to Java's (16 Gibb Street) for open mic poetry read each Tuesday.


At the Dryden, they'll be showing Robert Altman's M*A*S*H at 8:00p.m.

Yet another South Park episode at Rohrbach's at 315 Gregory Street. Showtime at 10:00. The TVGrid descriptions are getting a bit thin-- In this week's episode, the description says, "the adventures of four third-graders in a supernatural town." Thanks. That helps a lot.

Turkey Lurkey
How do you tell when the turkey is done cooking?

Pop-up thermometer pops up.
Stick in fork, see if it comes out clean.
If guests get salmonella poisining, use time machine to go back and cook turkey longer.
Smoke detector sounds.
Turkey ceases to bang around inside oven.
