History told by the survivors One lasting effect of the actions of empires is that it can be difficult to locate the voices of the underdog, unmitigated by the interests of the victor. For this reason, it’s critical that we support the endeavors of those who are the keepers of these arcane histories. Though pop culture and incomplete education lend themselves to the still-widespread notion that Native Americans are a fascination relegated to the past, there are more than 8,000 surviving members
of the Seneca Nation in our region who can better tell the story of what was, what transpired, and what remains, with regards to their heritage. Their histories and contemporary lives are about to gain significant representation, as the dream to establish a Seneca Art and Culture Center at Ganondagan State Historic Site — a project nearly 30 years in the making — is on the verge of being actualized in Victor.

I am troubled by your continued editorial opposition to the proposed apartment project at 933 University Avenue (“Preserving Preservation,” Urban Journal). From the start, there’s been one legitimate objection to Morgan’s development, which is that tearing down a building in the preservation district sets a dangerous precedent. But Morgan’s revised plans preserve and restore the original house on the property. Opponents of the project deserve credit for spurring this change, but their remaining objections are the standard “not in my backyard” arguments. The most absurd claim in your recent editorial is that a three- and four-story building “will look completely out of character on University Avenue.” Directly across the street from 933 University is the massive Gleason Works building, which has the largest footprint of any building in southeast Rochester. If the neighborhood can function with a giant industrial plant in its center, it can absorb 100 apartments. A publication that celebrates city living should cheer when developers have enough confidence in Rochester’s future to build a project like this, but apparently your editorial writers would instead prefer yet another empty parking lot. ARYEH COHEN-WADE
“Just say no.” This is editor Mary Anna Towler’s answer to the Morgan University Avenue building proposal. Shame on you; I’ve given you more credit for thoughtful analytical thinking. The proposed site is one of the most uniquely qualified development areas of our city. It’s on a major mass transit route.
It sits dead center of walkable services – three (!) grocery stores, three entertainment venues, and a full retinue of services. Nearby are seriously under-utilized, lowprofile, solidly built buildings, the kind that with a smidge of encouragement become quirky shops and art spaces. In fact, that movement is already underway. So the conversation should be “what kind of housing possibility do we want on this prime space?” Because ultimately, like it or not, cities thrive and grow with people, not so much with broad lawns. I am not impressed with the arguments put up by the George Eastman House. I support GEH, but let’s get real. They already own the adjacent property (Hutchinson House) on East Avenue, and it’s shamefully underused. And don’t drag out that old chestnut about parking. Let’s talk about the Preservation District another time, for there is much to discuss and the conversation transcends the current project. Morgan Management wants to make money. They’re standing at the gate of this neighborhood and the neighborhood holds the cards. So what do you want? The usual Rochester reaction – “the status quo” – is too tiresome. SHIRLEY M. DAWSON
One false assumption is “that every one-bedroom tenant will have a car, and that most of the two-bedroom apartments will have two tenants with cars.” Four out of five one-bedroom units will have TWO cars, and many twobedroom will have two or three cars. The parking density and consequent neighborhood stress will be MUCH higher than is now being shrugged off. ELAINE
Pride Parade: lessons learned
The jubilant Gay Pride parade on July 20 drew thousands of gay folks and their straight allies, marching in and witnessing one of Rochester’s most inclusive, joyous, and uplifting events. Marching as an ally in a Temple Sinai contingent and seeing the very diverse range of groups – religious and secular – marching in support, I was struck by how far our community and the society
has moved on gay rights (despite awareness there is still work to do and that it is an understandably troubling issue for some people). The parade’s positive energy and underlying appreciation for our common humanity gives hints of what some have called the “Great Turning” from concern only with one’s own immediate issues toward creating a society that will in the long term be good for all of us and for the planet. Are there lessons from this inspiring event and the movement’s successes that could be applied to other seemingly intractable issues like racism, economic injustice, and the assault on our planet? • For one, the theme of pride itself draws people in – gay and straight alike. It’s a big “yes” all around to affirm oneself and be affirmed as valued. • The importance of gaining allies to ones cause was tangible. Allies can be moved by compassion and a sense of justice to cross their comfort zones and act in ways that would not previously have been imagined. Often people change after learning that someone in their family, a friend, or a person they admired, is gay. • Foremost in making progress has been the immense courage of those who come out (see City’s interview of Tim Mains July 24) and, to a lesser extent, of their allies. • Music, movement, dance, and fun filled the streets – reminders that our child-like ability to express ourselves and play can still be accessed and is a welcome and necessary part of bringing positive change. • All ages and races lined the streets. Another “yes” to the joy that comes from the sense of community when wide diversity is present – and noticed. • The crowds seemed especially appreciative of religious groups. The possibility that religious teachings can be used to unify rather than divide our community and our world, brings hope. What possibilities there are for shaping a world that heals and supports us and the planet when we give a rousing “yes” to caring and courage, coming from a place of pride, being and gaining allies, including everyone, finding support through spiritual teachings, and making it fun!

ROCHES T E R A N D B E Y O N D .
Lessons from Detroit Last week was a tough week in Rochester, with the news about Valeant moving the B+L headquarters to New Jersey and laying off hundreds of employees here. And I keep thinking about Detroit’s bankruptcy. There are a lot of differences between us, certainly, beginning with the sheer magnitude of Detroit and its problems. Detroit spreads out over 139 square miles. It had a population of 1.8 million in 1950. By 2012, that had dropped to 684,799: a 62 percent decline. Rochester’s population, on the other hand, has dropped only 34 percent. There are some hints of recovery in Detroit. “The good news, lost amidst the screaming headlines over bankruptcy, is that market momentum in Detroit’s core is real and palpable and provides a strong foundation for future growth,” Brookings’ Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley wrote last month. Katz and Bradley point to the impressive growth of private investment in Detroit’s downtown and nearby neighborhoods. Quicken Loans’ founder and chairman, Dan Gilbert, moved his company’s headquarters – and 7000 employees – to downtown Detroit. He has bought numerous other downtown buildings, and he is helping spearhead a major new public-private initiative there. Other businesses have also been investing in the core area, as have medical centers and Wayne State University. But the evidence of the city’s challenges is almost overwhelming. Drive from the heart of Detroit’s downtown to the edge of the city, and you see block after block of abandoned, boarded-up buildings and seedy, empty lots. And while Detroit does have beautiful, prospering neighborhoods, in some of them residents have resorted to hiring their own security force and holding fund-raisers to beautify the streets. The June report from Detroit’s emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, lists these grim statistics: 78,000 “abandoned and blighted structures,” 66,000 “blighted and vacant lots.” In 2000, the unemployment rate was 7.3 percent; in 2012, it was 18.6 percent – and it got as high as 23 percent in 2010. Forty percent of the streetlights don’t work. The average response time to the highest-priority police calls is 58 minutes (the national average: 11 minutes). Police and fire-department equipment is aging. There’s plenty of blame to go around for Detroit’s problems, and for many of the city’s critics, political corruption is an easy target. There certainly has been corruption, but a healthy city with engaged residents gets rid of corrupt politicians – and it rebounds from their misdeeds. Other critics

Rochester has not reached Detroit’s depths yet. Maybe we never will. But the warning signs are there.” have blamed pension costs and union contracts. But that’s also too simplistic. High on the blame list has to be the decline of the US auto industry. Automakers’ complacency in the face of the threat by imports was one problem. (Complacency comparison? Eastman Kodak.) So were trade policies like NAFTA, and local tax incentives that result in race-to-the-bottom thievery among municipalities and states. Racial polarization, white flight (followed by middle-class black flight), the flight of business and industry – including the automakers – to the suburbs, the complete lack of a federal urban policy: all of these contributed to Detroit’s fall. Rochester has not reached Detroit’s depths yet. Maybe we never will. But the warning signs are there. And we’d better start paying attention to the similarities. We should also pay attention to Detroit’s positive signs: the growing corporate interest and leadership in the city’s rejuvenation, spurring the relocation of suburban business to the city. Some declining cities are able to turn themselves around. Detroit isn’t the only US place to suffer a jaw-dropping loss of jobs at major employers, Robert Samuels observed in the Washington Post recently. In Seattle, employment at Boeing dropped to 38,690 from 100,800 between 1967 and 1971. “The Seattle area,” wrote Samuels, “now has Microsoft, Amazon, and Starbucks.” What we do about our own challenges – what the Greater Rochester community does – will determine whether we’ll survive the impact of the changes in our own major industries, our suburban sprawl, our racial isolation. “Come visit Detroit, my fellow Americans,” Detroit TV reporter Charlie LeDuff wrote in the New York Times recently. “Come take a look at your future.”

Camera suit proceeds
The lawsuit challenging the City of Rochester’s use of red light cameras can go forward, according to a ruling by State Supreme Court Justice Scott Odorisi. Lawrence Krieger filed the suit claiming that the cameras violate the Fifth Amendment right to due process. The city tried to have the case dismissed. Oral arguments are scheduled to begin on September 11.
Perez stepping down
Eastman Kodak CEO Antonio Perez will step down in late 2014, according to the company. He will serve as CEO until Kodak is out of bankruptcy in early September and the company names a successor. Perez will be a member of a post-bankruptcy advisory team. According to an industry trade, his 2012 salary package, which included a bonus, was $5.5 million.
Shootings are up 15 percent and robberies are up about 14 percent from this time last year, according to a mid-year report from the Rochester Police Department. The good news, according
to the report: property crimes including burglary are at their lowest level in 25 years, and assaults are down 11 percent from 2012. And even though shootings are up, actual homicides have dropped from 21 to 16, the report says.

COMING UP FROM
Rochester Mayor Tom Richards leads the endorsement chase in the mayoral primary contest pitting Richards against City Council President Lovely Warren. Richards is endorsed by the Empire State Pride Agenda, Representative Louise Slaughter, and the Democratic, Independence, and Working Families parties. (He joked that the WFP endorsement probably made some of Rochester’s business elite itchy.) The lack of endorsements may not bother Warren, though, since no one’s really sure if endorsements equal votes. And it kind of fits into Warren’s narrative that her campaign is about the underrepresented and underserved people of Rochester — people without a union or organization to rep them. Earlier this week, Richards picked up the endorsement of the Rochester Teachers Association. Richards preaches support and stability when it comes to the school district. Frequent leadership changes and political battles have done nothing to improve student outcomes, he says.

Warren says she’s not against the district, but after 30 years of decline, city residents deserve choices, including charter schools. Skeptics could easily read the RTA endorsement as self-preservation. And, since most of the RCSD’s teachers live outside the city, it’s unclear how much weight the union carries with average city voters. And Richards’ argument could backfire if people look at the RCSD’s decades of dreadful performance and mismanagement and think that “support” is the last thing that place needs. That’s especially true if they blame teachers for the mess — fairly or not. But remember, too, that the RCSD is a significant employer in the Rochester area. Not just for teachers and administrators, but also for the recipients of the thousands of dollars in contracts the RCSD awards annually. If people believe that Warren’s procharter stand jeopardizes their livelihood, could that swing them to Richards? The tea leaves are tough to read.

Cost of War Why would parents consider buying a home in the 19th Ward, a resident asked, when they don’t even know how long School 44 will be open or where their children will go when it closes?
EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

The pain and politics of school closings Politics may be local, but school closings are personal. School 44, which is due to be closed, had a group of teachers, parents, and homeowners from the 19th Ward confused and angry at a meeting of the Education Committee of the Southwest Common Council earlier this week. Many of the school’s teachers said they had only recently heard about the closing. Compounding the problem is that Superintendent Bolgen Vargas hasn’t committed to a firm closing date. There are too many school closings planned for the 19th Ward, residents said, and they are concerned about property values. School 44 would close, and even though School 16 is scheduled to re-open, the date is uncertain. School 16’s remodeling is included in the second phase of the massive schools modernization project, and legislation to fund the second phase isn’t even in progress. School board member Mary Adams, who lives in the 19th Ward, said at Monday’s meeting that School 16 won’t reopen for at least two years. Why would parents consider buying a home in the 19th Ward, a resident asked, when they don’t even know how long

School 44 will be open or where their children will go when it closes? Adams, who was the only board member to vote against closing School 44, said that Mary Adams. State Education PHOTO PROVIDED Department officials are firm in their demand that five city schools close for the schools modernization plan to move forward. But she said she’s concerned with a strategy that closes schools in the 19th Ward despite the high concentration of children in the area. Adams questioned why the district would close School 44, when the school serves 590 students who mostly live in the 19th Ward. But School 23 in the Park Avenue neighborhood will undergo millions of dollars in remodeling, Adams said, even though the school has to bus kids in to fill it.
Great Lakes agenda The state Department of Environmental Conservation recently released its Great Lakes basin action agenda — 10 items and related goals compiled from existing plans and studies. Many will be familiar to anyone who follows issues around the Great Lakes. | Some of the agenda’s objectives are likely to get more attention than others. For example, the document mentions offshore wind power development a few times. A few years ago, the New York Power Authority tried to advance an offshore wind project, but the idea ultimately stalled. Critics and supporters of the effort were quite vocal. | In its energy development section, the new DEC document suggests that the state do planning work to identify at least one area where offshore wind development could occur. | The rest of the agenda identifies objectives for issues including cleaning up and reducing pollution, controlling invasive species, promoting smart growth, enhancing recreation and tourism, and conserving water. | The agenda and information regarding it can be found at http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/91881. html. Comments on the document can be submitted to email@example.com through September 1.

Hemlock-Canadice’s watershed moment The City of Rochester sold approximately 7,000 acres of land around Hemlock and Canadice lakes to the state in 2010 to make sure that the waterfronts remain safe from development. And yet the lakes are currently at the center of a controversy about gas and oil drilling. That’s because the state’s proposed plan to manage the property — designated the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest — doesn’t explicitly rule out drilling on or under the land. The lakes are Rochester’s primary source of drinking water. In response, the statewide Adirondack Mountain Club and State Senator Ted O’Brien are drafting legislation to classify the land as a unique area. The designation would strengthen protections for the forest, including banning gas and oil extraction on or beneath the forest’s surface. “If there’s anything that the people in the greater Monroe County area and surrounding counties don’t want is that they don’t want to see any kind of oil and gas extraction from the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest,” says Neil Woodworth, the Adirondack Mountain Club’s executive director. O’Brien’s office began looking into unique area status after the public outcry began over the state’s proposed management plan. O’Brien’s district includes much of the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest and he says he will sponsor the unique area bill. He says that the legislation is in the “buttoning up” phase, and that he will look for an Assembly sponsor from the region. “We’re working very hard on the bill right now,” O’Brien says. Rochester Mayor Tom Richards says that city officials are not opposed, in principle, to making the forest a unique area, but that they want to make sure the heightened status won’t inadvertently prohibit routine maintenance of the land. The work is necessary, Richards says, to protect the lakes’ water quality. Richards and other city officials are opposed to gas drilling on the state forest land, he says, and to high-volume hydraulic fracturing — fracking — in the Hemlock and Canadice watersheds. O’Brien says he and the others working on the bill want to make sure they address Rochester’s concerns. And Woodworth says that the unique-area legislation can be written accordingly. The ultimate fate of the bill, however, is with the State Legislature. The drilling industry has some pull in the Senate — it has much less influence in the Assembly — and it remains to be seen whether the industry could, or would want to, derail any legislation that O’Brien introduces.
Earlier this year, environmental activists
began pushing for the Hemlock-Canadice forest to be designated as a unique area. The state Department of Environmental Conservation’s draft unit management plan for the forest land started it all. The document lays out how the department will approach a range of issues, including recreational uses and tree, plant, and animal diversity. But the plan’s language about oil and gas drilling — and there is substantial text devoted to the topic — immediately alarmed environmentalists, conservationists, and Rochester officials, who say that the plan doesn’t directly rule out drilling. City officials even sent comments to the DEC asking for language that explicitly prohibits drilling in the forest. Another problem: the draft plan doesn’t directly say that the state should prohibit leasing the rights to drill under the surface of the forest. Woodworth says that the plan appears to be written to “keep alive the idea” of leasing the subsurface rights. Many critics are especially concerned about the underground drilling rights because drillers could feasibly start a well on neighboring private property, Woodworth says, and drill horizontally under the forest land. That’s not something that’s likely to happen in the Marcellus Shale formation, Woodworth says, because the shale in that area lacks characteristics that are attractive to drillers. But it could be an issue in the deeper Utica Shale formation, he says. And taking away the availability of the subsurface rights also takes away some incentive to drill in the Hemlock and Canadice watershed lands outside of the state’s property. A DEC spokesperson said previously that the state has no intention of allowing drilling in the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest. But the management plan’s critics haven’t put much faith in those remarks. Just before the end of this year’s legislative session, Adirondack Mountain Club officials
met with DEC representatives and agreed not to push the unique area bill until the agency finalizes the forest’s management plan.
State Senator Ted O’Brien and the Adirondack Mountain Club are writing legislation that would give additional protections to the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest. FILE PHOTO
That should happen before the start of the next legislative session in January, Woodworth says. Ideally, the DEC will recommend unique area status for the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest in the management plan, Woodworth says. And he says there are plenty of reasons to do so: Hemlock and Canadice are the only Finger Lakes with completely undeveloped shores; the old-growth forest is a haven for wildlife, including two pairs of nesting bald eagles; and its water and trails are a recreational asset. If the DEC doesn’t recommend unique status for the forest, the Adirondack Mountain Club is ready to work with legislators — and hopefully, Rochester officials — to push the legislation anyway. Mayor Richards says he hopeful that the city’s desire to keep fracking out of the state forest and watershed — and away from the city’s drinking water — isn’t controversial. And the state could make that recommendation in the management plan without affecting New York’s broader fracking review, he says. “To date they’ve been good partners with us,” Richards says. “Nothing’s happened with it [the Hemlock-Canadice land] that’s anything other than what we anticipated.”

Dining in a restaurant housed within a grocery store — a store featuring an animatronic crowing rooster — is an odd sensation. In the span of a few minutes, you can move from dodging grocery carts in the parking lot, to walking by cupcakes decorated to resemble Cookie Monster and Elmo, to being asked if you have a reservation by a well-appointed hostess. Built to evoke an Italian villa, Amore, the Italian restaurant and wine bar housed within the recently renovated East Avenue Wegmans, is replete with stone work, blonde wood, roughhewn beams, weatheredlooking metal, and crystal-accented lights. It feels less like an actual villa and more like a facsimile found in Epcot Center’s World Showcase. Sections of the restaurant look
out onto the store’s Market Cafe, where crowds of people enjoy the lo mein, subs, pizza, and sushi prepared in-store. Inside Amore, the bar is slick — it retains the metal and crystal, and adds lipstick-red flourishes for good measure. There is a nice selection of more than 40, predominantly Italian, wines to ponder and taste, a handful of which are available in 2 oz. pours, wellsuited for tasting flights. In the main dining area, the focal point is Amore’s kitchen, built around a beehive-shaped Neapolitan pizza oven. The kitchen is open to the dining room, and it’s entertaining to nibble on appetizers while watching the chefs prepare meals and waiters zip in and out. The service at Amore is excellent. Servers
are prompt, attentive, and courteous, and manage the delicate balance of being at the ready when you require attention without being overly solicitous. Dishes and utensils are whisked away at the appropriate time, mishaps (like a broken dish or spill of wine) are handled quickly and kindly and, if you leave your table for a moment, your napkin will be neatly refolded in your absence.
While some dishes are only served at lunch or dinner, there are a number of items available at both meals, including the warmfrom-the-oven rosemary flatbread ($4). Shaped and cut into wedges like a pizza, the flatbread is softer and more yielding, sprinkled with fontinella and served sans sauce. It’s well seasoned with rosemary, olive oil, pops of salt and cracks of pepper. Vegetables are showcased at Amore, garnering their own section of the menu. They’re large enough to share as a side, but not overly generous. The roasted asparagus ($8) is fresh and lively, brightened by lemon juice. It gets a salty and rich kick with a pinch (too small of a pinch, unfortunately) of melted parmigiano-reggiano cheese. The eggplant parmesan ($10) is a staff favorite, according to a Wegmans blog post by Russell Ferguson, executive chef of culinary development. Like Ferguson says, the eggplant is soft and custardy, almost lush on the tongue. But the rest of the dish falls flat, with muted tomato and basil notes. Pizza also gets its own section on the menu,
and runs the gamut from classic Margherita ($12) to pizza topped with a soft-cooked egg,
pecorino, speck (a type of cured and smoked pork), and potato ($14). The 11-inch, thincrusted pizzas are baked at 600 degrees, resulting in a crisp, slightly charred crust. A personal favorite combination, meatball with banana peppers ($11), didn’t disappoint. The flavor-rich meatballs were set off by the vinegary astringency of the peppers. While this pizza has been phased out of the menu, I’d nonetheless try asking for it nicely. Another Italian restaurant standard, ravioli ($12 for a smaller portion/$16 for a larger serving), brings Wegmans Italian Classics product line to the fore, using the store’s jumbo ricotta and basil ravioli and topping it with a zucchini tomato sauce, the minty herb nipitella, and a ricotta salata. Basil and nipitella make for a vibrant pairing but, on the whole, the dish tastes less like a chef ’s innovation and more like something a savvy home cook whipped up using Wegmans products. The Amore steak ($19), a tender and flavorful sirloin flat steak, is topped with garlic cheese butter. Fat is a beautiful carrier of flavor, making each bite rich and delicious.

History told by the survivors
Ganondagan works to open Seneca Art and Culture Center
One lasting effect of the actions of empires is that it can be difficult to locate the voices of the underdog, unmitigated by the interests of the victor. For this reason, it’s critical that we support the endeavors of those who are the keepers of these arcane histories. Though pop culture and incomplete education lend themselves to the still-widespread notion that Native Americans are a fascination relegated to the past, there are more than 8,000 surviving members of the Seneca Nation in our region who can better tell the story of what was, what transpired, and what remains, with regards to their heritage. Their histories and contemporary lives are about to gain significant representation, as the dream to establish a Seneca Art and Culture Center at Ganondagan State Historic Site — a project nearly 30 years in the making — is on the verge of being actualized in Victor. Ganondagan State Historic Site is located in Victor at Boughton Hill and Victor Holcomb roads. The state-run site marks the location of a major 17th-century Seneca town and palisaded granary, features a full-scale replica of a bark longhouse, and is host to many educational and recreational programs each year, including the Dance & Music Festival in July and the Winter Games & Sports Event in February. The Seneca Art and Culture Center was first conceived when Ganondagan State Historic Site Manager G. Peter Jemison was hired in 1985. “There was an idea that we would eventually build some type of a center here even in our original master plan,” says Jemison. The idea for the building went on the back burner while Jemison oversaw the reconstruction of a bark longhouse, completed in 1998, that would give visitors a sense of the living space of the Haudenosaunee (the preferred Native term for Iroquois). In 2003, the concept of adding a new building to the site was revisited, as New York State experienced economic difficulties, and Jemison became aware of discussion about closing some state parks and historic sites. “At that point, Ganondagan was basically just land,” he says, noting the exception of the 10 CITY AUGUST 7-13, 2013
longhouse and a small visitor center. Jemison believed that preservation of and support for the site might be more secure if there was a permanent, year[ FEATURE ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY round structure for displaying Seneca art and information about their cultural traditions. While thinking seriously about how to begin the process of adding a building, Jemison attended an event in Arizona, and visited a new center that had been built to reflect the cultural traditions of one of the tribes native to that area. The idea of doing the same at Ganondagan seemed more possible. After initially securing the funds for an architect to design the space (DeWolff Partnership Architects is the firm chosen to design the space), Jemison has spent the past seven years on an emotional and financial rollercoaster, trying to secure the money required to construct the building. In the end, New York State, the Seneca Nation, and various foundations and private donors raised $10 million toward the project, which is set to break ground in September of this year, with completion projected for 2014. The significance of the proposed site
cannot be overstated. From 1655 to roughly 1687, Ganondagan was the capitol of the Seneca Nation, and remains one of the only interpreted Native American sites in the Northeast United States. Many who visit the site and learn about the Haudenosaunee stand in awe of what its people accomplished without the technology we rely on today. “For example, the Seneca in the 17th century grew 1 million bushels of corn. They didn’t have tractors and tillers and all that stuff,” says John Ninfo, a retired bankruptcy judge who now works as an outreach educator at Wild Wings (a not-forprofit educational organization that houses and cares for permanently injured birds of prey), as a

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Took a chance and rolled up on the singersongwriter showcase at The Club @ Water Street Wednesday night. Half the battle in supporting local music is encouraging it to stay original. Most artists I talk with want to play their own stuff exclusively, but demand often dictates differently. Kaylin Cervini is one of those artists. Though the young lady pulled out a couple of covers, including a passionate take on “Summertime,” she stuck to her original guns. Her lyrics aren’t necessarily that unique or profound, as she addresses love, love lost, and the endless confusion and twilight between. But her voice demands attention. Cervini serves up a heady and sensuous contralto that sailed above her abbreviated backing band. I have often rejoiced as technology has brought music back to the musicians and out of the grabby paws of the toolong-established charlatans and racketeers. Bands are embracing and forging a new honesty, even a new sound. You’ve got, for instance, Brooklyn’s Lucius, a band so full of unpretentious joy I smiled until my skull almost popped out of my mouth. The band wowed the crowd and my skull Thursday
at yet another swell edition of Party in the Park. The instrumentation was minimal, with everyone in the band resorting to percussion, sometimes all at once. The five-piece band was fronted by two identical ladies in half-black, half-white dresses, kind of like the black & white cookies we used to get at Sibley’s bakery when we were kids. When the two played it was as if one of them was playing into a mirror. The quirk and Talking Headsesque slant was over shadowed only by the women’s constant and stunning harmonies. The guitarist played a complete Sears Silvertone set up, which was all kinds of cool. Straight outta Seattle, headliners The Head and the Heart pounced the stage to the delight of the extremely enthusiastic mob. In much the same bare-bones vein, THTH had instruments laying about the stage, with each member picking one up as if on a whim. The melodies were gorgeous. Everyone was singing and jumping up and down. I left smiling in a cloud of Gray Ghost exhaust, my skull still inside its wrapper.

There’s plenty of presentation and protocol in this live-music racket that threatens to upend the whole affair. There are plenty of bands that don’t put the music first, concentrating instead on the biz, buzz, and baubles. Then there’s a quartet like Rochester’s Cold Sweat, a straight-up, straight-ahead blues band. Sure, there are detours into Latin rhythms and rockabilly jump, but this is a heavy, rockin’ blues quartet, pure and simple. Obviously influenced by heavy blues cats like George Thorogood and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Cold Sweat — Steve Casilio, guitar and vocals; Ray Sciaratta, bass and vocals; Mike Giugno, drums; and the newest kid to the line-up, Roger Reddy, keyboards — exhibits little wasted flash in its execution. There are no histrionics, the music does the talking. And Cold Sweat’s bluesy chatter is rough-hewn and glass-pack raw, due in part to Casilio’s killer guitar tone and Sciaratta’s lyrics — lyrics that
have, upon occasion, reared their head and bitten him in the ass. The boys in the band stopped by to chew the fat, pimp their new CD “Introductions,” and talk about making lyrical mojo work for them. Here’s an edited transcript of what was said.
well, it’s also known as the divorce album. The theme behind a lot of the songs is breakup and it became quite personal by the time the CD was done. My wife kept asking, “Why are you writing songs like this?” and before you know it, it was, “Goodbye.”
CITY: Cold Sweat didn’t start out as an original/ traditional blues band? Steve Casilio: We started roughly three years
Was capturing this hot blues sound for “Introductions” difficult in the studio? Sciaratta: You know, we had the music so
ago as kind of a ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd-type band. It was more of a heavy blues type of band. We have an edge. And that has evolved over a year with changes in the line-up. We’ve been told now we’re a hot blues band. And we’re one of the few blues bands in Rochester that writes original songs. We’ve lost a few members because of that.
So what marked the beginning for the band as we know it now? Casilio: When Ray and I connected it opened us
up not to just more blues and heavy blues, but it opened us up to writing. The two of us started collaborating.
Being an original blues act, the stories, the ups and downs — they’re all yours, right? Casilio: My playing is my history, my life, all the
music I’ve listened to. Ray Sciaratta: The CD has evolved into…
down everything was done in one or two takes. Honestly, I thought it was easy. Roger Reddy: The CD itself is real organic. It’s basically a live recording in the studio. We just went in and played through it. It just flowed. Since Ray displayed some lyrical mojo that had not-so-great results, what are the future songwriting plans? Casilio: We’ll do an album about girls. Sciaratta: Or winning the lottery. I’m thinking
happy on this next one. You know, happy blues.
What has been your worst show? Casilio: It was during football season and we
only had two people in the audience.
Sciaratta: Yeah, but they danced all night long. So you had the whole crowd up and dancing? Sciaratta: I guess you could look at it that way.
They loved us.

ROCKABILLY | KIM LENZ & THE JAGUARS
CLASSICAL | FINGER LAKES OPERA
Her mother was in the rodeo. Her father was a Wolfman Jack devotee. It seems as though Kim Lenz was born to be rockabilly royalty. While growing up in southern California, her musical education was all over the map. She was raised on such disparate acts as Wanda Jackson, Cole Porter, and Blondie. Combining a deep respect for traditional songwriting, a swingin’ pop sensibility, and just the perfect touch of twang, Kim Lenz & the Jaguars is cutting-edge Americana. Rolling Stone writes, “If Elvis had been a woman, he probably would have sounded just like Kim Lenz.” While this may be true, I guarantee he would not have been as good looking.
The Rochester area needs another opera company like it needs another…well, come to think of it, we could definitely use some additional operatic action here. The brand-new Finger Lakes Opera hopes to help fill the breach. The program for this inaugural concert, led by the company’s artistic director Gerard Floriano (pictured), includes Metropolitan Opera soprano Danielle Pastin, Seattle Opera tenor Roland Sanz, baritone Evan Jones, and mezzo-soprano Jessica Best in arias, duets, and ensembles by Verdi, Puccini, Massenet, and other operatic heavyweights. The company’s first production, scheduled for summer 2014, will also be announced at the concert.

If you’ve got it as bad for country as I do, this has been a great summer of concerts at CMAC. Next up is Keith Urban with Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch. It’s the “Light the Fuse Tour 2013,” and Urban’s most recent “Little Bit of Everything” has me pushing up the volume and driving with all the windows down — it’s such a perfect summer song. And what flyboy doesn’t hear “You Gonna Fly” as those tires roll to the tarmac? Pair that sultry-bodied Urban with the raw power of Little Big Town, singing hits like “Tornado,” and you have lost any excuse to sit at home when you could be stretched out on the lawn at CMAC, stars twinklin’ in that August sky.

Accident and unpredictability 2013 Shaw Festival THROUGH NOVEMBER 3 NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ONTARIO, CANADA 800-511-SHAW, SHAWFEST.COM [ REVIEW ] BY MICHAEL LASSER
In the four plays I just saw at the Shaw Festival, accident and unpredictability are constant, as are contradiction and reluctant confession. Some are triumphs, others anything but, but the liquid nature of identity is everywhere. Even the reliability of time is up for grabs. That’s the case in Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” (Studio Theatre, through September 7) which receives a production worthy of its dazzling ability to play with time. It brings to the game knowledge of everything from gardening to history to mathematics to physics, all of it insightful and challenging, but none of it daunting or off-putting. Quite the contrary. Stoppard’s ebullience and wit, his gift for character and intellectual play, give “Arcadia” its great appeal. It also helps to have a director (Eda Holmes) and cast in sync with its every twist and turn. We sit in on a lesson in 1809 in a grand English country house, Sidley Hall, as young, 18 CITY AUGUST 7-13, 2013
lovely, and — as we shall learn — brilliant Thomasina Coverly (Kate Besworth) receives a lesson from her tutor, Septimus Hodge (Gray Powell). Then we are whisked forward to the present to watch two dueling scholars (Hannah Jarvis, Patrick McManus) try to piece together what happened when poet Lord Byron visited the estate, including assignations and challenges to duels. Because we know what really happened, their efforts are hilariously funny, but beneath their folly lies the painful humanizing glory to be found in the passing of time (in one direction only), the need to know, and the imperfection of understanding. Brian Friel’s extraordinary “Faith Healer” (Royal George Theatre, through October 6) is less a conventional play than a melancholy but strangely exhilarating theater piece. It consists of four monologues by three characters — “Frank,” “Grace,” “Teddy,” and “Frank” again — who tell the story of Frank Hardy, the healer of the title, from their own perspectives. He calls what he does — the act of restoring the ill, malformed, and disabled — a performance as he works in a gray area that triangulates somewhere between truth, reality, and miracle. Sometimes, you see, in a shabby storefront or church basement, he actually does heal. He practices, he says, “craft
without an apprenticeship, a ministry without responsibility, a vocation without a ministry.” Only if Frank and the others end well would it be surprising. But the play’s persistent ambiguity makes it hard to know anything for sure. Is Grace his wife? Do they have a still-born child buried in a field in Northern Scotland? Do the young toughs in the pub murder Frank when he fails to heal their friend? The questions matter more than any answers, but facing the men in the bar gives Frank for the first time the aura of certainty, an escape from chance. In its retelling of a single story, the play resembles Akira Kurosawa’s classic film, “Rashomon.” Here, though, as the characters contradict one another, and their emotions collide, sometimes savagely, each of them is alone on stage. The exhilaration comes from following the undermined certainties and shadowy needs that limn their fog-shrouded lives. Only Teddy, Frank’s manager and the one who can still laugh after a lifetime at the seedy limits of show business, turns out to be a survivor. When the lights rise on Jim Mezon as Frank, he appears to stand 10 feet tall, a man of imposing solidity. Then the truths and half-truths begin to emerge. Mezon is a force of nature, with that great head and rapier nose, and his voice a reed that cuts. How does another actor follow him? Corrine Koslo as Grace is a half-drunk emotional cripple who never leaves her chair, but she and Peter Krantz as Teddy are as mesmerizing as Mezon. Krantz provides comic relief that takes us deeper into the play and his character. The young director, Craig Hall, is wise enough to let the play speak for itself, rather than imposing a “vision” upon it. Two of the plays embrace the romantic possibility of a trip to Italy. One of them lives up to it. Matthew Barber’s “Enchanted April” (Festival Theatre, through October 26) is a fairy tale where good things happen. However, to be truly convincing, joyful endings must rise from the dregs of loss and the deepening temptations of despair. Set in 1922, only four years after World War I shattered England’s spirit, four women abruptly leave rain-soaked London for a month in Italy, long a talisman for the English imagination. Lotty Wilton and Rose Arnott (Moya O’Connell and Tara Rosling) are trapped in marriages drained of love, young Lady Caroline (Marla McLean) parties to avoid facing the loss of those she loved; and Mrs. Graves (Donna Belleville), an elderly widow, seeks solace in memory. Barber’s stage adaptation of Elizabeth von Arnim’s 1922 novel and two subsequent film versions is a small, sentimental story,
but also a disarming crowd pleaser that can charm an audience into belief. The gray first act gives us rain and the burden of the War. Its dark streak is essential because it invests the dream with reality’s bitter taste. Lloyd Alexander, a spinner of fantasy novels for children, once wrote, “The muse in charge of fantasy wears good sensible shoes.” The four disheartened souls achieve transformation when they rent a small castle in San Salvatore, bedecked in wisteria and awash in sunshine, overlooking the sea. Designer William Schmuck’s second act set resembles a second-rate 19th century Italian painting, but the ancient walls that glow in Kevin Lamotte’s golden light are richly theatrical. The need for delight to struggle free of hopelessness helps to explain my dissatisfaction with the production. Director Jackie Maxwell chose to emphasize the comic side of the story — especially Lotty’s giddy chatter, her husband’s (Jeff Meadows) obtuse pomposity, and Mrs. Graves’ condescension. In the process, the production loses too much of its poignancy and thus diminishes what all the characters so wondrously gain. You can make a musical out of anything, but that doesn’t mean you should. In the case of Craig Lucas (book) and Adam Guettel’s (score) “The Light in the Piazza” (Court House Theatre, through October 13), a respectable 1950’s matron from North Carolina (Patty Jamieson) takes her daughter Clara (Jacqueline Thair) to Italy for the first time. When Clara and a young Italian, Fabrizio (Jeff Irving), fall in love, the crisis begins to build. As a result of a head injury on her 11th birthday, Clara will develop physically but not emotionally or intellectually. Should the mother reveal the truth to Fabrizio’s family? The play’s second act is stronger than the first, but neither is especially satisfying. Clara’s powerful tantrum is resolved with a wave of the hand, and what amounts to a willfully blind happy ending comes about because the characters — for no discernible reason — decide that it will. The first act is repetitive and has little character development. The singing voices are at least adequate and often strong, and Thair is a lovely ingenue. Guettel’s hard-edged, post-Sondheimian score has few melodic moments; the music sometimes feels at odds with the content of the lyrics. Designer Michael Gianfrancesco’s abstract module looked like a funeral bier and the three large movable arches cluttered the small stage. I kept waiting for a collision — if only to make the play more interesting.

Comedy FILM | CLASSICAL 91.5 FILM SERIES
You don’t have to have seen Stanley Kubrick’s classic bug-out sci-fi flick, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” (pictured) to recognize the über-iconic, mega-dramatic, suspenseful theme music. It’s so pervasive in pop culture, used as a soundtrack whenever anyone is trying to let us know exactly how epic anything is. But if you haven’t seen the film, you should, and then argue with friends over exactly what happened in what you just saw. Here’s your opportunity: join Classical 91.5 host Mona Seghatoleslami for a screening the film, which made use of existing classical music to offset relatively sparse dialogue and the silent vacuum of space. The screening will take place on Saturday, August 10, at 1 p.m., at the Little Theatre (240 East Ave.), followed by a discussion on the use of music in this film with a panel including music and movie specialists. This is the second in a series of three films WXXI has selected for its first Classical 91.5 Film Series. The next and last film in this roundup is “Amadeus,” which will screen on Saturday, August 17. Pledge your support to WXXI at the $30 level for a pair of tickets to any one of these screenings, or purchase rush tickets at the Little Theatre Box Office on the day of each screening for $15 each.

THEATER | “THE DROWSY CHAPERONE”
I have a good buddy who has an intense dislike of musicals simply because he feels it’s unrealistic for people to burst into song to narrate what’s happening. Another of my friends wishes that life was actually lived that way, and frequently sings what she means to say. These two once had me wondering what it would be like if we acted like characters in musicals. You can get the idea by attending RAPA artistin-residence group OFC Creations’ staging of “The Drowsy Chaperone,” a Tony-winning musical parody of American musical comedies of the 1920’s, in which a middle-aged musical-theater fan plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit, “The Drowsy Chaperone.” The show comes to life in his apartment as he conducts a wry commentary on the components of the production. OFC’s production of the musical features young-adult performers, from those entering high school to college graduates, hailing from Pittsford, Webster, Victor, Greece, and Rochester. The production will take place at RAPA (727 E. Main St.) on Thursday, August 8, through Saturday, August 10, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and available online at ofccreations.com. Remaining tickets will be available at the door one hour before curtain. For more information, call 325-3366. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Elmwood Ave. Free. 784-5300. brightonlibrary.org.

SPORTS | SILVER BALL TOURNAMENT
Baseball has come a long way from base ball, the old-timey game invented in the mid-1800’s. Besides closing the gap in the name and adding gloves and protective equipment, a few of the rules and terminology have changed. Get acquainted with the game of yesteryear this weekend, at the 11th Annual National Silver Ball Tournament, which will be held Friday, August 9, through Sunday, August 11, at Genesee Country Village and Museum (1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford). A dozen clubs representing the museum’s vintage baseball league, plus squads from Michigan, Ohio, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Canada, will compete in a round-robin tournament. Games will take place daily 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The Championship Game will be played at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Silver Base Ball Park, the nation’s first recreated 19th-century base ball park. The museum’s two ladies’ teams, the Brooks Grove Belles and Miss Porter’s Ladies Base Ball Club, will also play during the weekend. The season culminates with the Mayor’s Cup Championship on October 6. Tickets to the games are included in the museum admission price ($9.50-$15.50, free to ages 3 and younger).

[ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
With a hard-earned reputation for flirting with outrageous and comical interpretations of sex, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar demonstrates in his new movie, “I’m So Excited,” that the outrageousness and the comedy, without wit and invention, cannot sustain an entire film. A late work in a reasonably prolific and quite successful career, the picture seems like one long, very tired joke.

The director uses an age-old gimmick, probably dating as far back as “The Canterbury Tales,” and in cinema, “Grand Hotel” — gather a disparate group of people in one place, going on the same journey, and let them interact and tell their stories. In this case, the place is an airplane on the way to Mexico, and the people are the first-class passengers. As in all those other airplane movies — serious ones like “The High and the Mighty” and “Airport,” and parodies like “Airplane” — the pilots encounter a mechanical problem with their craft and must deal with it, and their passengers, throughout the film, which generates revelations among the characters and a series of repeated gags. The one basic joke that motivates most of the others involves homosexuality, a subject the openly gay director frequently explores. The three flight attendants who handle first class — in an unexplained bit of business, all the passengers and attendants in economy class have been drugged asleep — begin the action with a campy exaggeration of the usual safety instructions, then

throughout the film constantly discuss their sex lives, dwelling on particular partners and actions. The title itself in fact, which is decidedly not a translation from the Spanish title “Los Amantes Pasajeros,” derives from a ridiculous musical bit in which the attendants lip sync the title song while performing an outlandish dance number. Their partners and actions, it turns out, also involve both the captain and the copilot on an aircraft where every male in the crew is either gay or bisexual. In the cockpit, the captain and copilot join the stewards in numerous shots of tequila, which apparently doesn’t distract them from maintaining the plane’s course, but not a good advertisement for Spanish airlines. In addition to the drinking and arguing about oral sex among the crew, a number of oddballs from the first-class cabin enter the cockpit and tell some strange stories of their own. A woman named Bruna (Lola Dueňas) claims to be a psychic who smells death, which naturally unsettles the crew, and accurately predicts an ending in a sea of white clouds. A banker named Mr. Mas (José Luis Torrijo), fleeing the law for his financial misdeeds, informs everyone of the percentages of survival in a crash. Determined to lose her virginity, Bruna first arouses, then seduces an unconscious young man in economy class. A dominatrix named Norma (Cecilia Roth), a frequent passenger who constantly complains about the airline,

Hollow points “2 Guns” (R), DIRECTED BY BALTASAR KORMÁKUR NOW PLAYING
“Blackfish” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY GABRIELA COWPERTHWAITE OPENS AUGUST 16 [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
announces that she possesses videotapes of many important men enjoying her services — she later has sex, minus the sadomasochism, with a professional hit man hired to kill her (it’s that kind of movie). The mere existence of “I’m So Excited” demands some sort of explanation of why the director actually made it. The silliness, the reflexive triviality of its people and actions, the endless revelations of who exactly has performed oral sex with whom, the steadily decreasing level of wit make the whole work a farce with less depth than the average television situation comedy. Even the tacky uniforms of the crew and the set itself, from a director addicted to bright colors and possessing a genuine sense of style, look cheesy and cheap. The cast of actors, most of them unfamiliar names and faces to American audiences, handle the dumb material without any particular distinction. The only member with any presence at all is Torrijo, surely not known in this country, in one of the smaller and less outrageous parts. For inexplicable and completely unnecessary reasons, Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz — big names everywhere — appear for about two minutes before the plane takes off, but certainly contribute nothing beyond some artificial business to the film. “I’m So Excited” must be the dumbest and perhaps the most destructive act of Almodóvar’s career, and a bad advertisement for Spanish air travel.
The first time I saw the poster for “2 Guns,” the new action-comedy from Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur, a friend pointed it out to me while standing in the lobby of the multiplex, observing that it looked so hilariously generic it seemed to be one of those posters for a fake movie you see in the background of other films. Well kudos to the marketing department, because now having seen the film, that actually turns out to be a fairly accurate portrayal. Based on the graphic novel by Steven Grant (though not having read comic, I can’t comment as to how closely it follows its plot), the film’s story centers around partners in crime, Bobby (Denzel Washington) and Stig (Mark Wahlberg). As the film begins, the two men are working together to rob a small bank where Mexican drug lord Papi Greco (an entertaining Edward James Olmos) has supposedly deposited $3 million of his
Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in “2 Guns.” PHOTO COURTESY UNIVERSAL PICTURES
earnings. However, we learn early on that neither man is who the other believes him to be. Bobby is actually a DEA agent hoping to gather enough information to put together a case against Greco, while Stig is a Naval Intelligence officer on a notso-legal mission to obtain the stolen money as a means of funding covert operations. The two men successfully get their hands on the money, but quickly discover that instead of $3 million, they’ve somehow made off with $43 million. Where exactly that extra money came from and who it belongs to is a mystery, but as Bobby and Stig find themselves betrayed by the people they thought they could trust, they become targets of the DEA, the Navy, Greco and his men, and suddenly the CIA. As doors close off to them one by one, it isn’t long before their backs are against the wall and they have no choice but to team back up if they have any chance of getting out of this rather sticky situation. If ever there was a film that benefitted from having movie stars in the lead roles, it’s “2 Guns.” The interplay between Washington and Wahlberg is absolutely the saving grace of the movie. Washington plays a character we’ve seen before; the short-tempered no-nonsense professional, but he does it extremely well here. It’s Wahlberg, however, that’s the true MVP of the film, playing the sharp-tongued smartass to comedic perfection. Bill Paxton turns in a scenery-chewing performance as a mysterious professional killer tracking down the missing money. Paula Patton is wasted as Bobby’s former girlfriend. It’s a role that starts off promisingly, but goes nowhere after the film realizes that it has no use for a woman after she’s taken off her top. It’s especially disappointing considering the potential for ass-kickery she demonstrated in “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.” Kormákur demonstrates competent directing ability, but he has trouble balancing the conflicting tones of the film. Amidst the jokey feel of the rest of the movie, the moments of realistic, frequently
graphic violence are jarring and Kormákur doesn’t have the finesse necessary to make it work. Save for some strong performances, “2 Guns” is ultimately as forgettable as its title, and likely to fade from audience’s memories before the summer movie season comes to an end. In the provocative new documentary
“Blackfish,” director Gabriela Cowperthwaite examines the treatment of orca whales in SeaWorld theme parks, demonstrating the dangers (to both the animals as well as their human trainers) of keeping these fiercely intelligent, but often misunderstood, creatures in captivity. She focuses specifically on Tilikum, the sadly now notorious whale responsible for the deaths of three people over the course of his 30-year “career.” She argues that his behavior was inevitable, the result of the trauma he suffered by living under the conditions in which the animals are typically kept. Cowperthwaite uses interviews with marine life researchers, former SeaWorld employees, and some absolutely bonechilling footage of several orca attacks, to back up her thesis, and the result is surprisingly emotional. It’s difficult hearing the experts describe the behavior exhibited by the animals, and their capacity for emotional understanding on the level of any human. Listening to the trainers speak of their experiences, it’s clear the attachment they feel for the animals they worked with and it’s that bond that led them to speak out against the practices at parks like SeaWorld. The case the film makes is nothing new, and the horrifying consequences of forcing wild animals to perform for our entertainment have been well-documented, but this gut punch of a movie is bound to make those arguments stick with you. The Little will host a special screening of “Blackfish” at on Tuesday, August 13, 7 p.m. with a live Skype Q&A with director Cowperthwaite, before the film begins its regular run at the theater starting August 16.

potatoes (crispy and rosemary-flecked on the outside, creamy and inherently buttery on the inside) and a simply dressed arugula salad (its bitterness simultaneously softened and set off by olive oil and lemon), this is the not only the most satisfying dish on the menu, but the most delicious steak I’ve had locally in some time. Lighter and also delicious is the dinneronly Tuscan cod ($17). Fresh and flaky, the cod has a crispy exterior, flavored with juice from caramelized lemons, and is accompanied by shaved fennel — the light licorice flavor plays off the citrus notes — and sautéed cherry tomatoes. Found only on the lunch menu are panouzzis; essentially, an oven-baked sandwich. I thought the chicken parmigiana ($10) would be a slam-dunk, but this is another item with underdeveloped flavors. The chicken itself was moist (thigh meat typically is, and it’s smart to use that to a dish’s advantage), but the breading was dry and dark, and the sauce and cheese seemed overwhelmed by the bread. The side of arugula salad remained fresh and delicious.
We have a great selection of wood chips... hickory, mesquite, apple, cherry, pecan, and Jack Daniels.
to Amore is figuring out what to expect from the dining experience. Wegmans’ press materials position Amore as a spot for a quick bite, casual date, or relaxed meal with a crowd. But, first and foremost, it seems to be a showcase for Wegmans Italian Classics product line — in fact, that is part of the spiel the waitstaff greeted me with during each visit. If Amore is largely a vehicle to highlight Wegmans products, why is so much thought and time put into the spot-on service — which is better than at a number of other area restaurants? Why are some menu items’ price points higher than one would expect? Why is the restaurant architecturally separated from the very space that houses the products it seeks to sell? If its aim is to provide a more sophisticated and authentic experience than chain restaurants in the style of Carrabba’s, Cheesecake Factory, or P.F. Chang’s, why do some dishes and the interior design run counter to this? Why is Amore built into the East Avenue Wegmans and not a standalone building like the Next Door Bar & Grill? And why is the bill presented in an empty Wegmans Italian Classics bruschetta jar? With solid service, numerous wine selections, and a number of simply prepared yet satisfying items, Amore could turn into a long-term relationship. But at this point, it’s a confusing Italian lover.
