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:
Tonight's good bet at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is The Blood.
WRUR night at
(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.)
Boston Brew Company
(251 Exchange Blvd.)
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
(21 Richmond St.)
I just think "Crosseyed Cat Band" is a cool name ...
this occasionally has bearing on how good a band is.
This is getting as bad as not seeing Buddhahood when they
were Thursdays at Red ...
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.

On this day ... March 9
Link of the Week:
The Straight Dope: Everybody needs a hero. Maybe yours can be the quasi-ficticious Cecil Adams who writes the Straight Dope column for the Chicago Reader. There's also a website, as above, which has a searchable index to all the wacky questions he/she/they has/have answered. Find out why they don't make planes out of the same stuff the black box is made of.
