Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 61. Apologies for the Off-by-One, Raul

I won't be able to make it to cheap night next week either, but I'd still like to go to the Maxfield Parrish show at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave.) It runs from February 20 through April 30; admission fee is $10, $9 for students w/ ID, $7 on Tuesday evenings, or 5$ with a museum pass.


Movies this week:

  • Mission to Mars - A mission to the red planet goes horribly wrong when powerful Martians beat up the astronauts.
  • The Ninth Gate - A book dealer seeks the last two copies of cursed antique demonic texts, only to find himself facing evil that's really really bad.


Tonight's good bet at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is The Blood.

Also, Milestones (170 East Ave.) is having the Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest with US Falls and Seven.

WRUR night at Red (171 St. Paul.)


Despite no excuses last week, turnout was low, so I'll say it again: there's no excuses this week not to see Amy's Comedy Cellar at 7:30 at Christian's Cafe in Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) The local comedians from the open mics around town get together to do a combination of stand-up and sketch comedy. It's free and you can't see it anywhere else. Try catching some sushi at California Rollin' beforehand then head across the hall for the show.

Afterward, you can check out 5Head at Empire Brewing Company (300 State St.)

Karaoke at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)


Weird Al All you fans get your butts out of bed early because tickets for the Weird Al Touring With Scissors concert on May 7 go on sale today at 10:00 a.m. The show will be at 7:00 p.m. at The Auditorium Center (875 Main St E or at East & Gibbs St.)

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

Maybe before you head out for the late-night stuff, check out the Stanley Kubric classic Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.)

Later at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Scary Chicken.

Speaking of cool band names, Crosseyed Cat Band is playing with Sedona at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) I just think "Crosseyed Cat Band" is a cool name ... this occasionally has bearing on how good a band is.


  • Futurama: I Second That Emotion - Professor Farnsworth installs an empathy chip in Bender after he flushes Leela's pet down the toilet.
  • King of the Hill: Bill of Sales - Peggy becomes involved in a pyramid scam and recruits Bill as her star sales representative.
  • Simpsons: Beyond Blunderdome - Homer becomes a Hollywood consultant and gives Mel Gibson advice on his forthcoming movie. Guest voices of Mel Gibson and Jack Burns.
  • Malcolm in the Middle: Krelboyne Picnic - Lois has a showdown with the other mothers at a Krelboyne picnic, while Reese preys upon Malcolm's gifted classmates.


This is getting as bad as not seeing Buddhahood when they were Thursdays at Red ... The game/show/gameshow Audience Quiz is at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.)


Open mic comedy at the Colosseum Caffe (262 Park Ave.) starting around 9:30.

Open mic poetry at Java's (16 Gibb Street) starting around 9:30.


South Park today at Rohrbach's at 315 Gregory Street at 10:00. Tonight's "classic" is Jewbilee: Kyle and Ike go on a camping trip into the wilderness as South Park residents await a meteor shower.

The Nuts & Bolts Improv Troupe will again be at Club Vibes (150 Andrews St.) at 8:00 p.m. It's $5 to get in and it's way totally worth it.

Where do you want to go this week?
Which way cool Rochester events will you attend this week?

Find out why they don't make planes out of the same stuff the black box is made of.
