My fellow lawyers are trying to help . . . really!
Bonerama goes back to high school . . . Pittsford-Sutherland, that is

It's the day of the Bird (not Charlie, but turkey) and I'm writing listings? Live jazz in Rochester over the next seven days....

Sorry about how late these listings are (usually I do them on Wednesdays for those of you new to this blog). I was out last night catching sets by Bobby DiBaudo playing solo piano and Jimmie Highsmith Jr. with his group at Bistro 135 in East Rochester. By the way, Jeff, the entrepreneur at Bistro 135, who seems to be taking a serious shot at creating a dinner spot and jazz club in the space formerly occupied by Le Jazz Hot is looking to book artists (he tells me he used the links in the right column of this blog to contact a number of artists—glad to know that its of use to someone). Jeff's looking to have live jazz there every night folks, so get out and support it.

  • Happy Thanksgiving! I'm just hanging at home this year as my lovely wife Dianna is visiting her family out of town and I had to stay here to work. The only Bird I'll be indulging in today is the one with the last name of Parker. I'm thinking spaghetti . . . .

We actually went to Bistro 135 last Saturday night for their "soft" opening. But we went, specifically, to see Sonic Duality and were hoping the food would be good, too. Some of the food was really good and some was okay; however, for an opening night, I think they did pretty well. There was a large party of at least 20 people on the same upper level as the band (and where we were) with three children who were allowed to run around--almost into our table several times, almost tripping up the servers--squealing and having a grand old time. It really took some of the pleasure out of the experience for the rest of us. Either Bistro 135 is a jazz dinner club or it's a family restaurant, it can't be both. My vote is for jazz dinner club. We'll go back again, I'm sure, and hopefully the kiddies will be home in bed sleeping.
