The O’s to hold motorcycle event

’VE NEVER RIDDEN on a motorcycle and doubt that I ever will. While I appreciate the sense of open-road freedom it gives those who ride, it’s just not for me. Heck, I get dizzy on roller coasters. However, I have friends who ride and know there are plenty of motorcyclists throughout the area, and in that spirit I’d like to share an event that The O’s (formerly known as Seven O’s, and later Snowzees) in Sunderland is having on Sept. 6 at 5 p.m. Named “Celebrate Bikers,” the event will toast the unofficial “end” of riding season (even though bikers will most likely be riding well into October – it’s really just a celebration of motorcycle culture and a way to raise a glass to this past season). The evening will feature music performances inside

and outside on the deck (classic rock, folk and country), some food and snacks, a 50-50 raffle and some local vendors to try and create a really fun evening dedicated to those who enjoy the road on two wheels. Chris Phoenix, who books music at the bar and is also organizing the event, explained his motivation. “What I’d really love is for people who love to ride to stop into our venue for an evening dedicated to the downturn of the riding season,” he said. “I also want to invite any and all to the event as well, as I want to print out some pamphlets on motorcycle awareness. Not everyone understands fully what is safe etiquette on the road when sharing it with riders, so I plan to have those out so there’s even an air of learning something while having a good time.”

Staind to play reunion show at Foxwoods

R

OCK BAND STAIND has added a Connecticut date to a small slate of reunion shows scheduled for the fall. The Springfield-based band will perform at the Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, on Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. Tickets for the show are available through the Foxwoods Box Office at fox woods.com and by calling Ticketmaster at 800-7453000. The show is in addition to two other scheduled performances at the Louder Than Life Festival (Sept. 27, Kentucky) and the Aftershock Festival (Oct. 11, California). Lead singer Aaron Lewis hinted at a reunion in March when performing in Oklahoma. “What if I told you Staind is coming back next year?” he said. “I might be lying... but I might not. There might even be live shows this year. I can’t say for sure. You never know.” Lewis’ solo tour played Foxwoods on July 28, a show that featured an appearance from Staind guitarist Mike Mushok. Whether or not the reunion shows lead to new music remains to be seen. The band’s last studio album came out in 2011. Staind formed in Springfield in 1995 and has sold over 15 million records worldwide. The band last performed together in August 2017 at the “Aaron Lewis And Friends” benefit concert at Look Park in Northampton.

Downtown Springfield dining continues to grow

A

NEW VITALITY IS energizing Springfield’s city center restaurant community as Springfield’s Downtown Dining District Loan Fund, a low-interest lending effort designed to enhance the downtown dining experience, begins to produce results. Started in February of 2017, the fund has already been instrumental in the development of two new dining options – BarKaya and Naismith’s Pub & Pretzel, both of which now occupy space on Springfield’s Worthington Street “restaurant row.” A third new downtown venture, a White Lion Brewing tap room, is in the planning stages, expecting to operate out of vacant space in Tower Square. It’s not, however, just the development of new restaurants that’s burnishing downtown’s dining destination credentials. Existing operations are also doing their part to make a visit to downtown more worthwhile than ever. This month MGM Springfield has introduced a new

UNJABI TADKA’S quiet, 50-seat dining room is located just left of the Paramount Theatre on the block that also houses the former Massasoit Hotel. Both historic sites are to be included in a long-awaited $40 million renovation scheduled to begin later this summer. Although we can surmise that the quiet of the restaurant may be somewhat disturbed by the impending construction project, we are happy to report that the restaurant’s owner plans to continue with business as usual. The list of appetizers at Punjabi Tadka includes the usual suspects: samosas, pakora and tikki. Soups make an appearance in the form of Lentil Soup and Coconut Soup (both $3.50), as does a diced Kachumber Salad featuring cucumber, tomatoes, onions and spices tossed in their homemade Tamarind Chutney. Anyone who reads this column regularly might note that there have been quite a few Indian restaurants in the rotation of late. And anyone who is truly paying attention surely has noted our affinity for a good appetizer sampler as a way to test-drive several options, so it should be no surprise that we chose a Mix Platter ($10). Diners can choose either the standard mix or a vegetarian

option, and our vegetarian platter included the meatless varieties of samosa, pakoras and tikki, as well as paneer pakora. The samosa was as a samosa should be: a large scoop of mildly spiced potato and pea filling inside a crispy, lightly fried pastry shell. It was frankly possibly the best we have had, and my guest deemed it lucky for the other Indian establishments that we had not sampled this one first, as it surely would be where the bar had been set.

Is it all about the beer for you?

I

WAS AT THE VETERInarian’s office the other picking up an item for my dog TJ. It turned out the price was a bit higher than expected, but I just said, “That’s no big deal. It’s only the cost of one beer.” They all laughed and one of the women said that she liked the way I thought. I told her that I often justify expenses by breaking them down into how many beers they might buy. I mentioned that story as a way of introducing this week’s column, which is to say that I obviously think about beer a lot, and I often overlay my thoughts on other subjects onto beer. In fact, I just did this the other day with a well-worn topic and wondered how others would feel: Over the years, and especially more recently as certain celebrities and artists have been castigated for horrible actions they’ve taken or things they’ve said, I’ve had discussions about whether people can “separate the art from the artist.” In other words, if a person creates a great work of art, but that is found out to secretly have been a horrible person, can you still enjoy the piece of art? Or does the new information about the artist spoil it for you forever? SEE BEER NUT, PAGE E18

Knowing Grahm’s quirky sense of humor (another one of his wine’s features a space ship flying over a vineyard on its label), he’s probably poking fun at the stuffy Brits who call their wines clarets.

Beer nut CONTINUED FROM PAGE E14

I’m not going to cite specific examples here because I don’t want this column to trail off into a digression about particular artists and their alleged crimes. For me, the art stands alone from the artist. A great work of art is a great work of art no matter who created it. In our modern age, we have access to a lot more personal information about people than they did even 50 years ago. But if you do the research, you’d find out that a lot of your favorite actors, musicians, writers, etc., weren’t exactly saints. But everyone has to make their own decisions on these cases. So recently, I started thinking about some of the politics of craft beer (and we all know there is a lot of personal politics in any business). Because I’ve been doing this column a long time and have gotten to know a lot of people in the business, I hear things about this person bashing this other person or spreading rumors about one thing or another. Some of these things are probably true; some of them are probably falsehoods. But I know, pretty much as a fact, that there are people out there who decide they don’t like a brewery or a brewer and therefore won’t drink a beer, even though the beer is good. Of course, that’s their right. But I can’t see myself passing up a fantastic brew just because the brewer rubbed me the wrong way one time or I didn’t like his stance on religion. I’m also not a huge fan of boycotts in general. So even if I found out that a brewery was giving money to a cause I don’t like, I’m not sure refraining from buying their beer would have that big of an effect. Unless boycotts are massive and well organized, they usually end up doing virtually nothing. Where would you draw the line for buying a beer from a company or a brewer who for some reason you didn’t like? Is it all about the beer for you? Or does it do other factors come into play? I’d love to hear what readers think. Contact George Lenker at geolenker@yahoo.com.
