Weekly Rochester Events #220: No, No ... The One in New York
Thursday, March 27, 2003
Well I've been pondering this ever since I found out about them, but now I've actually got a
JayceLand Store at CafePress.
So far you can only buy overpriced crap with the JayceLand logo on it, but in the future, I hope to add overpriced crap with funny things on them. I forgot to on Wednesday but forgot to get hold of a lawyer to set this up as a business as I think it'll make tons of money so I should have some sort of protection in case some loon tries to sue me because they think I'm actually right.
Oh yeah, and for lunch on Saturday, I guess it'll be ... umm ... I don't know. How about
(381 Gregory St.)
around the corner from Jan's house. Nothing surprising or exciting, except maybe for their bacon-and-brie burger. Mmmmm ... burger. (Too bad they don't always have brie, but that early on Saturday they should.) That, and like 80 beers on tap if you're up for that.
Last week I went to
St. Anne Church
(1600 Mt. Hope Ave.)
to see about the plans for the
(1411 Mt. Hope Ave.)
store. It actually looks pretty cool. They're planning on expanding into the rest of the building they're in which should increase the size of the store by about half again. The aisles will be wider, they'll landscape the parking lot, and make it a bit more pedestrian friendly. Best of all they'll add sushi, a café, and an organic food section. It looks like I might be able to ditch "Las Vegas" Wegmans down in Pittsford and just shop up here.
- Apparently about the American holocaust from 1915 to 1918. Unfortunately 15 minutes of Google searching and I still don't know what the hell that is.
- A soldier violates the Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code and their mission goes awry.
- You have got to be fucking kidding. There's way too much disbelief to be suspended in this train wreck of a movie.
Head of State
- Look at the real world today and tell me whether you've got to suspend more disbelief that we could have a black president in the next fifty years or all the crap in The Core ...
Ok, so the best funk-and-rock band in Rochester,
will open for the best percussion-based groove rock band,
tonight over at
The Club at Water Street
(204 N. Water St.)
starting around 9:30. I don't usually push shows, but there are only two bands in town who compel me to actually get my butt moving to the music and these are them. While the aforementioned butt moving is not something that should be witnessed by any human being, the aforementioned pairing of the coolest bands around is.
(363 East Ave.)
Can-Am Songwriter's Circle
starting around 9.
The Bug Jar
(219 Monroe Ave.)
is a last-minute fill-in show with
with rock-and-roll from
Seven Head Division
starting around 8:30 (hopefully I can rely on Bobby's promise to start these things on time ...)
If none of this stuff floats your boat, you can always head over to the
Spurrier Dance Studio
University of Rochester
(River Campus Map)
Discussion And Demonstration
Master Hat MakerDave Brown
starting around 7:30.
(21 Richmond St.)

Every once in a while one of these things come along where I wish I had a girlfriend to make a long drive with on a nice Sunday morning ... way out at
Rochester Museum & Science Center Cumming Nature Center

Maple Sugaring Weekend
... pancakes will be served from 9 a.m. to 2, and sugaring demonstrations will happen from 10 to 3.

Bob Log III
Bebe and Serge(who I guess are insane)

The Dryden Theater
George Eastman House
(900 East Ave.)
will be showing
Model Shop starting at 8.
The thing about this film about an exotic model who makes money from "amateur photographers" was that it was shot in L.A. at the height of the Vietnam War.
Tonight from 8 to 10 is an
Open-Mic Comedy Night
(389 Gregory St.)
While once it was a workshop type of environment, it's now more-or-less a regular open mic ... by default it's still a place to try out new stuff.
