Cheap Eats 2013
ART REVIEW, PAGE 22
Would you like to get all gussied up and treat yourself to an expensive gastronomic feast, complete with wine pairings and decadent, show-stopping desserts? If so, you can take your top hat and monocle elsewhere. This rundown of Rochester’s cheap eats is for hungry people who don’t carry their money around in sacks with dollar signs on them. Whatever these places lack in caviar service and fingerbowls they make up for in value and nourishment, and usually that’s all you need.

We give tax breaks to companies to bring jobs here, but we can’t pay for education and therefore don’t develop our talent pool so companies have less reason to come to Rochester (“Mayoral Candidate White Talks About Education,” News Blog). The job creation that is put forth is in construction and housing development with a flatlined population growth. All of our projects are based on how to get in and out of Rochester – the marina, the ferry, the high-speed rail, the bus station – or they are there for transitional populations visiting our colleges that for the most part will not stay because of the crime and the lack of good work. I believe that transitioning to a fair tax system needs to be phased in over time, but the breaks are not keeping the companies here, because we’re not developing talent that was born in this area and has ties here. Finally, and most important: Are these tax breaks working to keep job-creating companies here? Because a lot of these tax breaks are going to companies developing residential properties. No jobs there outside of maintenance, which is on a contract basis and not permanent. MARK WILLIAMS

Warren and the debates
Imagine if current mayor Tom Richards had refused to debate Warren during the Dem primary (“Warren Should Debate,” News Blog). After all, her campaign seemed hopeless. Or imagine if he’d continued campaigning on a minor party label (as he might’ve done after losing the primary). What would Warren have done then? I tend to think that we ought to be as expansive as possible. And so I agree with City
Newspaper on this. Lovely Warren should debate Alex White. Warren claims to be vaguely progressive. If that is vaguely accurate, she ought to be embracing public discussion of the many matters confronting the city. JIM JOHNSON
Must be why they call this the silly season! Lovely Warren didn’t start campaigning last month, she started campaigning last spring. And I know she has already debated Alex White in a public place, because I was there. Anyone who doesn’t know anything about her or her plans by this time has either been living under a rock or not paying attention. Don’t blame her; blame yourself. DARLING DYAN
If City Newspaper and the D&C would stop blindly endorsing Democrats every year for cityspecific races, candidates might actually be forced to debate and lay their cards on the table. RICH TYSON
The casino referendum
I have no interest in casinos (“New York’s Tough Call on Casinos,” News). I don’t find gambling fun, and I hate how they are designed to get you lost in the maze of slots. But honestly, how much would it hurt to put one down by High Falls? “Richards has said that he is opposed to a casino in downtown Rochester for the kind of statement it would make about the character of the area.” “I don’t know that putting a casino in the middle of downtown is necessarily what my vision of downtown is,” he said.” What is his vision of downtown? Does it have any character? To me, downtown is just a bunch of tall buildings with empty streets on the weekends. I live in the Park Ave area, and rarely find myself downtown (besides Jazz Fest and hockey games) since I don’t work there. I eat in the South Wedge, hang out on Monroe, go to the market, but downtown is just never on my radar as somewhere to go. Downtown, especially near Kodak, is pretty desolate. At least a casino would be something there. It would be better than losing yet another business to Henrietta. CULVER
Anyone who thinks casinos are a good idea should volunteer to pay more in taxes. It is insane to believe that an activity based on addiction is a good thing for the economy. Casinos, like fracking, show just how desperate our society is to make things happen... at any cost. TOM JANOWSKI
Cuomo isn’t doing anything to end corruption in government. In fact, he’s a perfect example of the problem, doing everything he can to benefit from the proposed referendum: 6/24/13 (Associated Press): “Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders have quietly deleted a proposed ban on accepting campaign contributions from casino operators.” 9/30/13: “Gov. Andrew Cuomo accused of manipulation of the ballot amendment wording on the casino gambling referendum.” 10/2/13 (Buffalo News): “A state judge next week will hear arguments in a lawsuit that contends the state has illegally expended funds promoting a casino expansion plan that the Cuomo administration is asking voters to approve next month in a statewide referendum.” 10/8/13 (AP): “Gov. Andrew Cuomo collected more than $361,000 and the Legislature has raked in over $1 million from gambling interests leading up to the Nov. 5 referendum.” The voters should send Cuomo a message and vote NO on the casino referendum.

Living with fracking
The so-called jobs will be filled by out-of-state-oil workers from Montana, Louisiana, and other states where they already have fracking established (“Unshackle Upstate Wants Fracking, Lower Taxes,” (News Blog). My hometown of Wheeling, West Virginia, has been overrun by the fracking industry, and it is horrible. You will not benefit from fracking. The roads will be cluttered with trucks day and night, and these out-of-state migrant workers will establish temporary housing with no regard or care for their temporary communities. NO FRACK

The new, ‘more,’ D&C We’ve had just over a week of the new print version of the Democrat and Chronicle, with, as promised, more content than the old D&C. And I’m not loving it. Change is good. Communities change, readers’ interests change, style and taste change. If we had to read the newspapers that were published 100 years ago, we’d faint from boredom. So now we have the new D&C, with 60 more pages each week. We do have more local news, but so far, a lot of it is small stories graphically blown out of proportion. And some of it is not more news; it’s big photos, big ads, a big editorial floating in white space. I do applaud the D&C for expanding state news. The trend in newspapers has been to reduce state coverage: specifically, state-government coverage. But the D&C’s expanded state content has been mixed, some coming from its excellent Albany bureau, others along the line of last Wednesday’s “Hike the Appalachian Trail.” Some readers are enthusiastic about the USA Today insert, the short-news master that now provides all of the D&C’s national and international news. This is certainly not the only newspaper that leans heavily on short articles that appeal to people with short attention spans. But that brings me to my real concern about the new D&C. A key role of a newspaper – any newspaper – is to help readers learn enough about important issues that they can be good citizens. We do that not only by telling readers what happened yesterday but also why: by providing context and analysis. The D&C is giving us a few articles long enough to provide both, but I had hoped the expansion would provide more. I’m also troubled by the increased reliance on Gannett writers for national and international news. With a few exceptions over the past week, every news article in every section except Sports was written by a local, state, or national Gannett journalist. That means that only Gannett journalists scour the world for our news, and only Gannett journalists decide which news sources should be interviewed, and on which topics. Add to that the dramatic decrease in the number of syndicated opinion columns, and we get a narrower and – thanks to the Gannett style – blander view of the world. The D&C is certainly doing some positive things. Despite its cutbacks, it has a strong local and state news staff, and the D&C seems to be stepping up its investigative efforts. But on the whole, there doesn’t seem to be a lot more substance in the “more” that we’re getting.

To be well-informed citizens, we need information, lots of it. And if newspapers don’t provide it, who will?” This is a time when the public needs more substance, not less. We live in an increasingly complicated world. To be well-informed citizens, we need information, lots of it. And if newspapers don’t provide it, who will? Readers can, of course, turn to other sources. That would be fine if readers were turning to outlets that provided substantive information. But more and more people – liberals as well as conservatives – are turning to online and television outlets that simply reinforce their own prejudices. And increasingly, the D&C seems to tailor its content to what readership surveys say the average person wants, as opposed to what people need. In journalism circles, it’s not politically correct to argue for the latter. It’s considered elitist. So call me an elitist. I like variety in media. I know that the public enjoys reading about food drives, principals who are retiring, old buildings, and school science projects. Those are nice stories about nice people, and they help create a sense of community in a diverse region. But newspapers also have a responsibility to be community leaders. A newspaper heavy with shallow stories about relatively insignificant events, a newspaper that aims for the lowest common denominator rather than helping readers broaden their horizons and deepen their knowledge, isn’t living up to its calling. (And by the way: What kind of newspaper do all those research scientists and technology whizzes moving to Rochester expect to find?)

Big buzz around LDC probe
Two developments set off renewed speculation about a grand jury’s investigation into county-linked local development corporations. One is the resignation of Monroe County’s chief information officer, Nelson Rivera. And the Water Authority has hired a law firm with expertise in criminal proceedings. A county spokesperson says that the county does not know when the grand jury will report its findings.
Yudelson joins Dems

Corn Hill’s new Historic Trail identifies 10 historic or cultural landmarks within the neighborhood, including a granite obelisk commemorating the old Plymouth Spiritualist Church and its famous parishioners, “spirit rappers” Kate and Margaret Fox. “It’s a wonderful piece of art that is important in our neighborhood,” says Rob Goodling, president of the Corn Hill Neighbors Association. “It is one of those 10 historic sites that will hopefully bring bikers and joggers and walkers through the neighborhood to learn about various historical aspects of Corn Hill.”
City Council member Adam McFadden introduced legislation to create drugfree zones in the city. The legislation would create a new section of City Code to prohibit loitering in defined areas for the purpose of selling drugs. McFadden said that he wanted to agitate dealers out of complacency, and to give police an added tool to combat open-air drug markets. Mayor Tom Richards said that he has serious questions about the legislation’s constitutionality.

The Fox sisters lived on Troup Street in Corn Hill and claimed the ability to communicate with the dead. Sites or stops on the Historic Trail also include the Genesee River, Frederick Douglass Village on Tubman Way, and the former Rochester Orphan Asylum on the southeast corner of Greig Street and Hubbell Park. Clarissa Street’s marker commemorates the neighborhood’s contribution to the American jazz scene. People wanting to travel the trail can pick up a “passport” at East Avenue Wegmans or the CHNA office at 133 South Fitzhugh Street. You can make rubbings of all 10 trail makers and then drop off or mail the passport to
the CHNA office to be entered in an annual drawing for a $100 Wegmans gift certificate. The first drawing will be held at the 2014 Corn Hill Arts Festival. Speaking of Corn Hill art, the CHNA is also looking to move its gargoyle monument. The limestone monument on Exchange Boulevard at Fitzhugh Place is in an ideal place visually, Goodling says, but road salt has irreparably damaged the statue. It needs to be moved to prevent further damage, he says. “It’s too bad because that’s just the most perfect location,” Goodling says. “Darn that salt.”

Mapping Rwanda Two RIT professors have equipped students in a couple of Rwanda high schools with smart phones and tablets to map their communities. Professors Brian Tomaszewski and Anthony Vodacek are leading a two-year pilot study funded by the United Kingdom Department for International Development. The students will use the equipment to collect and synthesize data from their surroundings. They might, for example, map cell-phone reception in a certain area, or create a map that shows the availability of electricity in an area. The project should improve students’ spatial thinking skills, Tomaszewski and Vodacek say, and may have benefits beyond the classroom. A detailed map showing areas lacking access to clean water, for example, could be used as a tool to advocate for government intervention, Tomaszewski and Vodacek say. “Maps are power,” Tomaszewski says. Two schools are participating in the pilot program, and a third is acting as a control group. The students in the first two schools will be evaluated three times over the course of the program to see how they’re progressing. “We will want to know, ‘Did this make an impact?’” Vodacek says. “Can we show that our intervention improved the students’ spatial thinking?”

The National Research Council’s 2006 report, “Learn to Think Spatially,” talked about the lack of spatial thinking ability in U.S. students and recommended that spatial thinking become a central component of K to 12 education. Tomaszewski says that it makes sense that this deficit would be found in students universally. Spatial thinking uses the properties of space — such as scale, distance, and direction — to structure and solve problems. Tomaszewski uses the discovery of the DNA double helix by Francis Crick and James Watson as an example. “They really used good spatial thinking,” he says “They were able to sort of think in their minds how these molecules were spatially related to one another and hence made this groundbreaking discovery.”

Apts. hearing Morgan Management’s proposal to build a 99-unit apartment building at 933 University Avenue will be heard by the city’s Planning Commission on Monday, October 21. The site is in the East Avenue Preservation District. | The controversial project has been through several design revisions. Originally, Morgan planned to demolish the 1920’s house on the northeast corner of the property, and the city seldom grants permission to demolish a structure in a preservation district. Morgan now says that it’s willing to save the original house and provide space in it for the building’s current owner, the Monroe Voiture veterans group. | Despite some lingering concerns about the project’s size and the planned removal of some older trees, most members of the city’s Preservation Board agree that the project would not have a significant negative impact on the surrounding area. A couple of board members have said that with proper screening, the view from nearby properties, including the George Eastman House, would be protected. | The Planning Commission meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in City Council chambers at City Hall, 30 Church Street. There are several items on the agenda. If the commission signs off, the project goes back to the Preservation Board for final approval.

Dems hopeful for an upset in Greece For a community with a population of fewer than 100,000, Greece’s scandals rival those of much larger places. Over the last decade, the town has been mired in the kinds of controversies, investigations, wrongdoings, and high-profile court cases that are usually reserved for nighttime television drama. The Greece Police Department became an algae bloom of criminal transgressions, culminating in the town’s former police chief going to prison for tampering with evidence. And a former tax assessor was caught in a kickback scheme with an Eastman Kodak executive. An FBI investigation of the Town of Greece has been under way for months, though it’s not clear what the inquiry is about. Another police officer has been placed on involuntary leave. And a court case challenging the town’s practice of opening Town Board meetings with a Christian prayer has risen to the level of the US Supreme Court, with a decision expected in November. Not surprisingly, Greece Democrats see opportunity in all of this. Since many of the scandals have involved Republicans, Dems say that this could be the year that breaks the GOP’s longtime stranglehold on elected office in the town. But it won’t be easy. Voters will decide on four council seats this year: Democrat Timothy Holler is challenging Republican incumbent Mike Barry in Ward 1; Democrat Wendy Wright is challenging Republican incumbent Brett Granville in Ward 2; Democrat

Monroe’s low-stakes Lej races County Legislature races are on the ballot for voters in parts of Greece and Irondequoit this year. In Greece’s 19th district, Democrat Mike Bertolone and Republican Kathleen Taylor are running for an open seat. In Irondequoit’s 17th district, Democratic incumbent Joe Morelle Jr. faces a challenge from Republican Ed McClenathan. It’s a relatively low-stakes election year for the Legislature. So much of the agenda depends on who controls the majority. And with only two seats in play, 6 CITY
OCTOBER 16-22, 2013
Republicans will retain their edge, even if they lose both seats. Morelle was appointed to office earlier this year to fill the vacancy left when Ted O’Brien was elected to the State Senate. Morelle says that his main goal is to bring jobs to the community, and he’s proposed a tax incentive for homeowners who make environmentally-minded improvements to their properties. Encouraging those investments would mean jobs, he says. His opponent, McClenathan, is an attorney focusing mainly on family law.
This is the second part in City’s general-election coverage, which continues in the October 23 issue. The general election is Tuesday, November 5.
He says that he wants to work with other legislators and the county administration to keep the tax rate “relatively flat,” and to keep the community attractive to residents and businesses. He says that he’s a critical thinker who’s focused more on policies and solutions than on political divisions. In Greece, Bertolone is a retired sheriff’s deputy who worked in the courts division. He says that he’s concerned about the county’s budget gap and that he wants to encourage small business development to help plug that gap. He also says that the
county needs a centralized point — or a point person — to help prospective business owners navigate the paperwork and legal requirements. Attempts to reach Kathleen Taylor were not successful. Her website says that she’s been Greece’s receiver of taxes for the past 28 years. It lists her priorities as keeping the tax rate flat, supporting job creation programs, and funding Greater Rochester Enterprise.

Medley looms over Irondequoit races To make sense of Irondequoit’s politics, it helps to think of the town as Monroe County’s swing state. Party affiliation doesn’t seem to mean much to Irondequoit voters. And they aren’t reluctant to bounce sitting officials out of office. As a result, town elections are often tough, hard-fought contests, and the 2013 races are no exception. On the Republican side, Supervisor Mary Joyce D’Aurizio and Town Board member Paul Marasco, both incumbents, are seeking re-election. They’re joined on the ticket by attorney Bill Brongo, who’s seeking the other open Town Board seat. Their Democratic challengers are supervisor candidate Adam Bello and Town Board candidates Dave Seeley and Lorie Barnum. Bello is the chief administrator of the county District Attorney’s Office, Barnum is director of development for the YWCA, and Seeley is an advisor to State Assembly member Joe Morelle. D’Aurizio and Marasco stress their roles in rebuilding the town’s finances. They both started their terms the same year that a state Comptroller’s Office issued an audit criticizing the previous administration’s budgeting. Between the end of 2006 and the end of 2009, the town’s reserves had dropped from $1.5 million to $297,000. By the end of 2009, then-supervisor Mary Ellen Heyman and the Town Board had adopted new fiscal policies and practices. And D’Aurizio says that the next few budgets, which were prepared under her administration, brought the town’s reserves up to $3.8 million, while keeping the tax rate flat. The rate stays flat in the proposed 2014 budget, she says. “That’s what prompted me to run in the first place in 2009 because I knew I could really straighten out the finances, really come up with balanced budgets,” D’Aurizio says. The Democratic slate has its own budget ideas. The candidates say that they want to implement participatory budgeting, where certain amounts of money are set aside and devoted to different projects in different neighborhoods. The idea makes sense, Bello says, because one neighborhood might need sidewalks repaired, for example, while another might need tougher code enforcement. Irondequoit has several high-profile, evolving issues. Town voters approved a
long-sought library consolidation plan this year, though opponents are passing
petitions to try to force another vote. And one night last month, fights broke out among a large group of young people at Regal Culver Ridge movie theater.

that there’s room for expansion by attracting new businesses. And they say that although Greece isn’t growing at the pace it once did, that easing traffic congestion and preventing commercial growth from encroaching into neighborhoods are issues that still concern voters. While Beebe and the Democratic lineup urge voters to dump incumbents to restore integrity to public service in Greece, Reilich flips that debate. He says that individual politicians, not the Republican Party, have been at fault in Greece. And he says that Democrats have credibility problems, too, pointing out the demise of top Democratic officials including former governor Eliot Spitzer and former Representative Anthony Weiner. But Beebe says that the problems for Republicans go deeper than the stains from former officials. He says that Republicans fail to recognize that the town is composed of a diverse set of communities ranging from older ethnic neighborhoods that border the city, to higher-income neighborhoods near the lake. And Democrats have a better record of uniting diverse communities, he says. Beebe says that the key to the race will be voter turnout. Although registered Republicans outnumber registered Democrats in the town, nearly one-third of Greece’s voters aren’t registered with any political party. Those residents will determine the outcome in November, Beebe says.

from the standard agreement that the town offers new or growing business, D’Aurizio says. Since the community felt burned by Medley, she says, officials wanted to make sure that I-Square had detailed benchmarks, that the developers had a well thought-out business plan, and that they had the resources to live up to their promises. “We had to really balance it, and unfortunately it played out in the media that there was a dispute,” Marasco says. “At the end of the day, I think both sides were satisfied and, to the developer’s credit, he’s up and running.”

Main St., Webster, 545-4258, barrysoldschoolirish.com) is what you get when you cross a pub with a café and bakery, and it’s a cozy place to get traditional fare like bangers and mash ($8) and a full Irish breakfast ($6.50), along with a satisfying RochesterDublin hybrid like the Sheepdog ($8), which beds a Zweigle’s red hot in a bun and then blankets it with shepherd’s pie. (For dessert, the Guinness layer cake is outstanding.) And if you’re thirsty, Barry’s features the area’s largest selection of Irish whiskeys. It probably serves water, too, if you’re into that sort of thing. • • • • • •
Hopefully area vegans will forgive a mention of Natural Oasis Café (288 Monroe Ave., 325-1831, naturaloasisny.com), because you just can’t make a list of Cheap Eats in Rochester without including this wickedly creative eatery. There are typically 13 items on the dinner menu, each a different daily preparation of dishes like stew, pizza, gnocchi, and greens, plus an Ethiopian selection, a drink, and a couple desserts. One recent visit, for instance, featured a brown-rice risotto with roasted cauliflower, oven-dried tomatoes, pesto, and pine nuts, and a sublime salad of lettuces, roasted beets and carrots, pistachios, and truffle vinaigrette. You forget that you’re eating vegan,

FOUR FREAKING BUCKS. Really. • • • • • • Consistently reliable and seemingly always open, Ming’s Noodles and Cuisines of Asia (1038 S. Clinton Ave., 244-0985, mingsnoodle.com) has expanded its menu quite a bit over the years to include Vietnamese and Thai dishes, and nearly everything on it is under a 10 spot. The lunch combos will run you $5.25, with dinner clocking in at a couple of bucks more, and the customizable noodles are an excellent bet. I’m a longtime fan of the soba tofu noodle soup ($6.50), which includes buckwheat noodles, bright veggies, and big chunks of tofu: filling, warming, and quite guiltless. • • • • • • New on the Rochester food scene, Sultan Lebanese Restaurant & Bakery (1659 Mt. Hope Ave., 241-0081) is one of only a few places in town where you can get the vertical rotisserie meat shawarma, available in pita combos with chicken ($5.49) and beef ($5.99). You non-carnivores are covered, too; besides many differently topped versions of the popular Lebanese flatbread manakeesh (all less than $5), Sultan does a good-sized vegetarian combo ($9.99) with hummus, baba ghanoush, tabbouleh, falafel, and more. • • • • • • You’ll get some of the friendliest service in town at Calabresella’s (1386 Buffalo Road, 235-7860, nystyledeli.com), though who
wouldn’t be in a good mood around all that mouthwatering deli food? Calabresella’s is known for its subs, and the Colon Kicker ($7 for a large), with grilled capicola and steak, might be the most famous of all. Lots of people just hedge their bets with an Italian Assorted ($6), but if there were a Dayna, it would have roast beef, lettuce, onions, tomato, mayo, and hot peppers. It’d cost $6.50, and it’d kick your hangover to the curb. • • • • • • One of the awesome things about James Brown’s Place (1356 Culver Road, 2884250, jamesbrownsplace.com) is that you can get anything on the menu at any time, perfect for anyone craving a huge frittata or some French toast for lunch. But maybe you’re not the short-stack type; no one’s going to stop you from enjoying an early-morning po’ boy or a 9 a.m. Sandwich Bistec ($6.99), which is Spanish beef, fried egg, sautéed onions, swiss cheese, and garlic mayo on French bread. The menu is massive, with only a few items going past the $10 barrier, and fans of well-done fries will be thrilled to know that James Brown’s Place understands what that means. • • • • • • Agave (2820 W. Henrietta Road, 2704376) isn’t hard to find, but it doesn’t exactly jump out at you either, and lovers of Mexican food might be annoyed at me for spilling this well-kept secret. The cheap lunch combos are the midday way to go, and some still come in under $10 even
with the additional $1.99 tacked on after 2 p.m. At dinner, the soft chimichangas are a deal: $9.99 for two meat-stuffed burritos topped with guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, and tomato, served alongside beans. And since they’re not fried, you can feel free to honor your restraint with a topshelf margarita. • • • • • • The South Wedge’s loss was Gates’s gain when Rohrbach’s Brewpub (3859 Buffalo Road, 594-9800, rohrbachs.com) lit out for the west side, but that doesn’t mean you city folk have to go without its famous Seven-Lily Soup ($5.50) or German specialties like the Pork Schnitzel Sammie ($7.95), which tops a big plank of pork cutlet with sauerkraut and muenster then tucks it into a freshly baked roll. (German potato salad on the side? Sure!) Burgers, sandwiches, salads, and plates are all nicely priced as well. • • • • • • The catering arm of BBQ Fred HogginIt-Style (610 N. Greece Rd., Hilton, 392-7839, hogginitbbq.com) is in enough demand that the actual restaurant is currently only open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, so that should be a clue that this place knows ‘cue. If you’re anything like me, you always opt for a quarter rack of ribs with two sides ($8.99). But there are also $8.99 burger combos (the Fred, for instance, is gilded with smoked roast beef, while the Macn-Cheese is topped with...you know) and $7.99 plate options, with the usual suspects
all available, along with options like Cajun corn and sweet potato fries. • • • • • • At nearly every sub shop, you have the option to build your own, and DiPisa Old World Submarines (196 Court St., 2326220; 362 State St., 454-3850, dipisa.com) is no different. But these people are pros; why not let them guide you? DiPisa’s has a roster of interesting Italian-inspired subs like the Melanzane Vegetariano ($6.99), with grilled breaded eggplant, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, sautéed mushrooms, baby greens, tomatoes, and pesto mayo, and the Mondo Siciliano ($6.99), filled with prosciutto, capicola, hot soppressata, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, black olives, and vinaigrette. And all the sub rolls are baked in house, so you know DiPisa’s ain’t foolin’ around. • • • • • • Open since 1988, Tokyo (2930 W. Henrietta Road, 424-4166, tokyorestaurantrochesterny.com) might be the oldest sushi bar in town, and you can certainly score bento lunches, as well as many maki rolls, for under $10. And as much as I love sushi, Tokyo is my go-to place for ramen. The miso ramen ($8.25) is available on a scale from a nicely spicy 1 to a face-melting 7. My favorite is the shoyu ramen ($7.95), a sweet, salty, and rich broth loaded with pork, seaweed, fish cake, and noodles. Add three dumplings and make it a shoyu ramen combo for $9.95. • • • • • • continues on page 12

Union St., 270-8106, theskylarklounge.com) serves, in various styles and combinations, often with a side. You got your traditional balls, along with pork sausage, spicy chicken, and a veggie version made from eggplant. The sauces run the gamut as well, from marinara to alfredo to pesto and beyond. Get away super cheaply with a $2 slider, or live it up with three balls and one side for $7. Now, one of those sides could be the amazing deep-fried mashed-potato balls, but if you want to go a little less sleazy (and a lot less spherical), choose cole slaw, or roasted veggies, or whatever special Skylark has cooking. • • • • • • Outlaw Potato sounds like a really funny Halloween costume, but at Texas BBQ Joint (122 S. Union St., Spencerport, 352-4227, tbjny.com) it’s a genuine meal, a baked spud topped with butter, sour cream, bacon, cheese, chives, and a big pile of barbecue beef, pulled pork, or barbecue chicken for $7.99. The Wrangler platter is $8.99, allowing you to choose one of nine meats (think beef brisket, smoked turkey breast, etc.), plus two sides, including fried okra, hush puppies, and broccoli-n-cheese. The sandwiches are all priced at around $5, and adding 12 CITY OCTOBER 16-22, 2013
a pair of sides for $3 means you’re still cheap eating! • • • • • • Obviously a slice of pizza is the ultimate in value eating, and The Pizza Stop (123 State St., 546-7252, pizzastop1.com) does not disappoint on that front. The Pizza Stop has been holding it down on State Street since 1986, its New York-style, thincrust pies among Rochester’s best. A twotopping slice will run you a mere $2.50. Hell, you could even get a small pie with one topping for less than a Hamilton. • • • • • • Dogtown (691 Monroe Ave., 271-6620, dogtownhots.com) is a simple concept, brilliantly and dependably executed: hot dogs and fixings, with a startling number of vegetarian options. Start with a red or white Zweigle German frank and choose from more than 15 topping configurations, none more than four bucks. Dogtown also offers burgers, sausages, and other sandwiches, with meatless versions of nearly every menu item available. At $6.69, the Junkyard Plate is a good bargain; two dogs or burgers atop two sides, such as baked beans, macaroni salad, and crisp home fries that alone make the Dogtown version of the plate one of this city’s finest. • • • • • •
Natural Vibes Jerk Hut II (665 Culver
Road, 360-4434, naturalvibesjerkhut. com) is housed in a cute, wood-shingled building near the corner of Culver and Atlantic, and its rustic feel perfectly complements the long-braised meats that anchor the dinner combos. The small size ($9) is more than enough for one meal, with protein options like jerk chicken, curry goat, and a flavorful brown stew chicken, served with rice and peas, plus a salad. There are a few non-meat options, as well as Jamaican breakfast classics like callaloo and saltfish ($9), served with dumplings, yam, and plantains. • • • • • • Hidden back in a little strip mall across from Monroe Community College is Chopsticks (125 White Spruce Blvd., 427-8878), a cozy Chinese restaurant with a Cantonese bent, as evidenced by its many rice dishes. The majority of the menu is under $10, but for an economical whole-meal experience, you can’t go wrong with a combo (nothing costs more than $6.65 at lunch and $8.35 at dinner), which adds fried rice and a choice of soup or egg roll to a hearty entrée portion of favorites like beef with broccoli, spicy jo bo pork, or sesame tofu. • • • • • • “Oh, let’s just go to Mark’s,” my friends and I have been known to say when it’s time to

A 24-hour diner, Mark’s is a melting pot of locals, though you won’t have too much time for people watching thanks to the quick and efficient service. You know the drill here — omelets, tuna clubs, grilled cheese, hot turkey sandwiches, and much, much more. The chicken gyro pita is my favorite: thinly sliced meat, pillowy pita, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and creamy tzatziki; with a side of fries (well done, of course) it’s $5.75. Oh, one more thing: Mark’s hot sauce rules. • • • • • • Named in honor of the year — and located on the site — that Susan B. Anthony was arrested for casting her then-illegal vote, 1872 Café (431 W. Main St., 730-7687, 1872cafe.com) is an airy, light-filled space whose walls pay tribute to crucial women in history. There’s coffee, of course, in its many manifestations — along with comfy seating on which to enjoy it — but 1872 Café also serves a rotating menu of soups, salads, sandwiches, and wraps like the Sonoma ($6.95), with roast turkey, swiss chard, and provolone, topped with sundried tomato and roasted corn pesto. Look for comfort-food lunch specials and fresh baked goods as well. • • • • • •
You’ll encounter some daily Costa Rican specials at Ticas with a Twist (280 Exchange Blvd., 319-3217), but the majority of the menu is Mediterranean, with starters like dolmades and tourlou, soups and salads, plus pita pockets ($6$7) and pita rolls ($6.25-$8). The platters are a good value as well, with pastitsio, moussaka, and vegetable lasagna combos each coming in under $10. Bonus: beautiful waterfront views. • • • • • • Family owned and operated since 1929, Fox’s (3450 Winton Place, 427-8200, foxsdeli.com) is a NYC-style deli with a good-sized menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches. Barely anything on the menu cracks a sawbuck, including the wildly popular Reuben ($8.79), which Fox’s claims is the best in town. You’ll also find builds like Bologna and the Beast ($7.79), which tops grilled bologna with hot pepperjack cheese and sautéed onions and serves it on rye, as well as the Sierrawich ($8.29), made of chicken salad topped with BBQ sauce, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and raw onion, and tucked into a hard roll. • • • • • • Opened this past July, Kneel & Neal Southern Cuisine (777 S. Plymouth Ave., 413-1943) serves down-home classics, like
a fried chicken leg-quarter dinner with two sides for $10. (Sides include collards, candied yams, and macaroni and cheese.) But if you walk in with $10 and get one of the $6 specials — that’s gizzards, rib tips, or four chicken wings plus a small side and a soda — then you’ll still have enough money for that heavenly lemonade cake ($3). Served in squares only slightly smaller than a paperback, the fluffy cake is soaked in so much lemony goodness that it oozes out when you begin chewing. Actually, now that I think about it, you could just get three pieces of lemonade cake and call it a meal. • • • • • • Expanded to two more suburbs after the success of its original Irondequoit location, Monte Alban Mexican Grill (845 E. Ridge Road, 697-0615; 2245 Empire Blvd., Webster, 787-4700; 2160 Penfield Road, Penfield, 586-4134; montealbangrill.com) showcases a serious selection of Mexican-food favorites, with a whopping 20 lunch and 26 dinner combinations all for less than a tenner. (And that’s not even including the halfdozen vegetarian combos.) I’m partial to Monte Alban’s tomatillo-based green sauce and tender pork; at $9.99 either the tacos carnitas or burritos tipico — the former served with rice and beans, the latter with continues on page 20 rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

Beam’s music is known for the simple, hushed quality that is present in every aspect of his sound — from the tender vocals, the sparse orchestrations, to the gentle, often arpeggiated guitar patterns. With the onset of his album “Kiss Each Other Clean” in 2010, Beam delved into a bigger, livelier sound, complete with a clear reexamination of all the musical aspects that have made him a noteworthy artist. On the recently released “Ghost on Ghost,” his sound only furthers that daring reexamination. — BY LEAH CREARY

A globetrotting Army brat, Reynolds formed the band in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the early 1980’s. In TR3, Reynolds explores sonically, electrically, and multidimensionally sounds that skirt genres from jazz to world.

The LA-based duo draws its musical influences from Depression-era barn-burning blues, throwing in an edgy punk ethos.

[ CLASSICAL ]
Live from Hochstein: L’Heure Exquise (The Exquisite Hour) in song.
[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
The faithful readers of my rants have been known to give me shit when I bounce around from venue to venue like a pinball. So this week, though there were multiple events on my radar (“Machete Kills” will have to wait until next week sometime), I decided to hit one show and dig it from load-in to load-out. It was So Last Year’s CD release show Friday night at Lovin’ Cup, with guests Adam Clark and Joe Percy. It was a night of song-centric wonderment from all three artists. Percy, of Sans Ego fame, took the stage with his guitar and his uncle — that would be Paul Morabito of Chesterfield Kings fame — on bass. Percy established his musicality and quirk by opening with Ween’s fun and falsetto’d “Freedom of 76” before launching into an otherwise totally original set. His guitar gently wept, and though electric, he played it Push Star/ Velvets style with a decidedly acoustic strum and attack. Morabito held the bottom end Longhorn-style and plodded about in a more of a freeform counterpoint than actual support. It twisted and mingled well with Percy’s gentle lyricism.
Reminding me of Ryan Adams sans the nicotine, Adam Clark took the stage with a set of music that can be viewed two ways. If he were an acoustic artist, the set would have seemed ramped and amped up. If he were an electric artist, then it would have come off reserved. Not knowing his plugged or unplugged roots, I had to focus on the music at hand. It was lovelorn lyrically with a percussive attack from the two acoustic guitars parked up front. It was quiet and the band had a little trouble getting the preoccupied crowd to turn an ear, but the audience eventually came around. Good music will do that. The star of the show, however, was Logan Van Epps, whose So Last Year was there to celebrate the release of its CD, “It’s Later Than You Think.” Manning the piano from center stage, Van Epps led his full band through some interesting, unbrandable pop. His voice is mighty flexible, though he spent most of the time flexing its upper register, its beauty only matched by the introduction of an abbreviated string section about halfway through the band’s short set.

Music blues influences, just at a higher speed. If you listen to most heavy metal or hard-rock solos, you can break them down to blues basics. They’re just throwing more notes in there. There’s a ton of bends, a ton of double stops. I listen to everything from Coltrane to Satriani to death metal and anything in between. So as a new drummer, what concerned you in joining an already-established band with an established sound? Were you worried? Frank Madonia: I wasn’t up until now…
I just wanted to keep it high energy. All throughout the CD, it’s high intensity, no let-up start to finish, all killer, no filler. What excited you most about Heatseeker’s music? Madonia: The songs…they’re big anthems. Anthems that still fit in a beer joint. Webster: We fit in places like Monty’s
Local hard-rock group Heatseeker has been plugging along for more than a decade, unconcerned with whether its style is in vogue. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE
Chasing the perfect tone Heatseeker OPENS FOR NASHVILLE PUSSY TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVE. 9 P.M. | $12-$16 | BUGJAR.COM REVERBNATION.COM/HEATSEEKERMUSIC [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Let’s clear up a bit of confusion. In the hallowed halls of all things rock ’n’ roll, big often gets confused with loud. Any band can be loud; just turn the sucker up. Plug in and peel out. The reality is that the bands we love aren’t just loud, they’re big. Rochester’s Heatseeker is big. Yeah, it’s loud, too, but it’s the size and quality of any band’s tone that trumps simply going to 11 any day. Over the past 13 years, two LPs, and one EP — including the thundering new release “Heads Will Roll” — Heatseeker has played breakneck, fast, heavy, and, yes, big rock music. The band has seen itself fall in and out of popularity without compromising its principles to earn favor or fans. Heatseeker’s adherence to what it loves and believes in is admirable. I went through a labyrinth of electric gates and barbwire fences and deep into the 16 CITY OCTOBER 16-22, 2013
bowels of a west side industrial park to find Heatseeker — Brendan Willem (guitar and vocals), Seth “City” Webster (guitar), Buzz K. Hymen (bass), and new drummer Frank Madonia — hard at work, swilling suds, and seeking the heat. The band paused for a few silly questions. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. CITY: Heatseeker has been around for a while… Brendan Willem: I started it in the tail
end of 2000. Seth came on board in 2001 and has been on board ever since. Buzz came on about 2005, and he’s been with us on and off. Frank is brand new, this will be his first show. How did it all get started? Willem: It kind of evolved out of a
punk-rock band I was doing at the time called Street Razor. We played out a little bit and the songs I was writing were becoming a little more rock ’n’ roll. The guys slowly dropped off one by one, so I got new people to where it was a totally different band, changed the name, and started fresh. The idea was to do old-school rock ’n’ roll, a lot of 70’s
Krown because we’re normal dudes, we hang out there. We’re just guys who want to drink some beers and play music. We don’t put on airs, or act grandiose, or like something we’re not. We’re just here to kick ass and play some rock ’n’ roll. What kind of fan digs Heatseeker? Webster: It’s funny, but playing together
influences, guitar harmonies, high energy, that type of thing. Clearly you’re influenced by Thin Lizzy. Willem: That’s probably my favorite band. I knew it! In the whole menagerie of highspeed, loud bands — punk, metal, hard rock, whatever — where does Heatseeker fit? Seth Webster: I just think of us as hard rock.
And when people say “metal,” I say think metal like old-school G‘n’R, Metallica in the 80’s, or something. I grew up playing in punk rock and hardcore bands, so it was kind of like reaching back and getting stuff I missed out on when I was more focused on punk stuff. The punk-rock energy is definitely there, but we’re trying to add more of the classic influences, while still keeping the sound updated. OK. Lizzy, Motorhead, etc. We get it. But what are some influences that may not be apparent to listeners at first? Webster: I listen to a ton of old blues; 1920’s
wax pressings like Mississippi John Hurt and Robert Johnson. I started as a blues player and a jazz saxophonist. If you slow our shit down and listen to it, I think there’s a lot of
the last 13 years or so, we’ve seen where we’ve been completely out of vogue. Like the early 2000’s, what we were doing just wasn’t popular. It seemed like you needed a rapper in the band or you had to have heavy chugging. We had a huge following in Syracuse, but didn’t fit anywhere in Rochester. Willem: We were too metal for the rock crowd and too rock for the metal crowd. We never worried about fitting in, though. We always knew what we wanted to do and we did it whether it was popular or not. We wrote the songs we wanted to write, we played with the bands we wanted to play with. And that’s what we’ve always done regardless. Webster: And that’s all we‘ve ever wanted to be. We’ve never wavered from that and I think the audience is starting to come around. We’ve almost had a resurgence in popularity the last few years. I don’t know, I guess it’s just the cycles in music. I mean, disco was popular at one time…and may be again. Heetseeker: the disco album? Webster: Who knows? Probably not.

CLASSICAL | ROCHESTER PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
Jonathan Biss handily disproves the notion that a pianist needs to be old and grizzled before tackling the core Germanic repertoire of Beethoven, Schumann, and Brahms. At 33, Biss is a highly regarded interpreter of all three in performance and in words. For his appearances with the Rochester Philharmonic, Biss will play Brahms’s “Piano Concerto No. 1,” a young man’s work (Brahms was 25 when he wrote it) performed by a young man. Guest conductor Bernhard Gueller also leads two outstanding orchestral show-off pieces, Jennifer Higdon’s “City Scape: Skyline” and Bartok’s classic “Concerto for Orchestra.” Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra performs Thursday, October 17, 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, October 19, 8 p.m., at Kodak Hall Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theater, 60 Gibbs St., $15-$92, rpo.org. — BY DAVID RAYMOND Son House Blues Night.

CLASSICAL | “THE RESURRECTION” IN MEMORY OF ESM DEAN DOUGLAS LOWRY
On October 2, Douglas Lowry, Dean Emeritus of the Eastman School of Music, passed away. He had only recently stepped down as Dean, a position he assumed in 2007. Lowry, also a composer and conductor, was only 62. Jamal Rossi succeeds Lowry as Dean. In memory of Lowry, a concert is being dedicated on Friday, October 18 at the Eastman Theater, presented by the Eastman Philharmonia and the Eastman Rochester Chorus, under conductor Neil Varon. Almost 300 instrumentalists and choral members will perform Mahler’s “The Resurrection.” Its first movement, “Todtenfeier” (“Funeral Rites”) is a symphonic poem, and, according to Mahler’s personal notes, the complete symphony poses a series of questions on the meaning of life and death, which he sought to answer. Eastman Philharmonia with the Eastman Rochester Chorus performs Friday, October 18, 8 p.m., Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theater, 60 Gibbs St., free, esm.rochester.edu, 274-1100. — BY PALOMA A.

POP/ROCK | FRIGHTENED RABBIT
Within the music of indie rockers Frightened Rabbit, singer Scott Hutchison’s Scottish brogue is likely the most immediate element that draws listeners in. His accented wails regarding love, drinking, and just about everything else in between certainly represent a strong balance of the band’s appeal, but so too do the other more complimentary instrumental elements and songwriting. Balancing subtly fierce drum work and driving guitars with wistful lyrics is a tried and true formula, but rarely is it so effective.

beans and guacamole salad — will typically do the trick. • • • • • • A meal all on its own, the Vietnamese sandwich known as banh mi really has it all: crusty bread, juicy meat, spicy jalapeño, grassy cilantro, sweet-tart carrot, unctuous mayo. And as you can tell by the name, Whatta Banh Mi (673 Monroe Ave., 319-4831) specializes in these creations, offering up hot options like grilled pork and grilled curry beef as well as the traditional meat called Vietnamese ham, each priced at $5. Inexpensive vermicelli and rice dishes are also on the menu, as is pho, the popular rice-noodle soup that you garnish to your liking. • • • • • • A Rochester institution since 1949, Rocky’s (190 Jay St., 232-9717, rockysonjaystreet.com) is an old-school red-sauce joint with zero frills. You probably won’t get a printed menu; just a rundown of the day’s offerings. And you may not even get a paper check; merely a total shouted to you from your busy server. In between, you’ll be treated to crazy-cheap Italian food done right. A large linguine with red or white clam sauce is $6.50. A large gnocchi is $6. It’s $7.50 for a large portion of homemade cheese ravioli. You get the picture? Check the website to see what Rocky’s is serving, and be sure to bring cash, otherwise you’re doing dishes.

FOLK | MANDOLIN ORANGE
Chapel Hill has an extremely rich musical tradition. Jazz, gospel, the Piedmont blues, rock, metal, punk, and hiphop; it’s all been cradled there. What many people might not realize is how much country music owes to artists that hail from the area, and Mandolin Orange has a healthy respect for the old-time twang that its North Carolina homestead helped to nurture along in its embryonic stages. But this duo is no battling banjo act. While the band is definitely steeped in the long lineage of lyrical country, folk, and bluegrass, it adds a modern touch that makes it relevant in today’s musical landscape.

ELECTRONIC | INFINITY SHRED
Tequila Sundays ft. DJ Andy Fade. Flat Iron Café, 561 State
This NYC-based experimental outfit mixes the ethereality and ambience of the most meditative post-rock with a taste for super glitchy hip-hop beats. These shredders of futuristic space synth just released its first full-length album in September on Paracadute Records. “Sanctuary” is just that: a safe asylum for the reluctantly reverent. Each track is a long and winding spiritual paradox that begs the question: Do I fall into the Electric Slide or crouch down into classic Lotus position?

Art oppressively damp and gray atmosphere. Two women in the foreground look out at the viewer, a moment of weary grief distilled. Metaphors for memory abound and increase with time spent amid Levy’s installation. It can be tricky to relocate specific images among the masses of moments scattered in the ether. Many of the viewing vessels were too distant for me to pull toward my eye, and accepting that I couldn’t access some of these memories, I had to ask a taller gent what he saw there. While “Memory Theatre” as a whole

The Memorial Art Gallery’s new exhibit, “Memory Theatre,” opened on one of the recent bright and brisk autumn evenings, when the daylong sunshine was punctuated by evening temperature drops and the fragrant decay of leaves, dipping us into that wistful ache of another year’s departure. The show is a collection of works that speak of the passage of people and of time, of shifts in culture and of shifty memory. The works are gentle when sorrowful and ultimately a reminder of the bittersweet brevity of life, and the role of the museum as a central memory-keeper of human culture. In addition to the many contemporary works of art, “Memory Theatre” brings together works that span many different periods in history. It features a 1920’s Shoshone painting on an elk hide that was created to commemorate both tribal traditions being forcibly lost and as a memorial for the three artists’ uncle, Chief 22 CITY OCTOBER 16-22, 2013
Washakie. A case of commemorative medals includes historic figures both heroic and inglorious, and events both tragic and victorious, all depending upon your perspective. Represented in bronze are General Douglas MacArthur, Mark Twain, Charles Lindbergh, the flag raising at Iwo Jima, President Dwight Eisenhower, and the lot of them is tidily summed up by Berthold Nebel’s “World Unity or Oblivion Medal,” a disc preserving in relief a doomsday blast and mushroom cloud, the entire ground a horror-field of fallen bodies. Sneak a peek around the corner of the case to view the obverse: a soldier cradling the form of a wounded companion. Deeper into the exhibit is a section of wall
text with examples about the compulsion to deny memory through the destruction of physical evidence of people or events, which has manifested during revolutions and times of political turmoil. Statues are pulled down, individuals are burned from photographs, and histories are rewritten with the omission of certain names. This subject alone — of the efforts to control cultural memory, of censorship and the various reasons behind it — would make a fascinating exhibit. Near the entrance of the exhibit are two massive photographs from David Maisel’s “Library of Dust” series, which are enlarged
images the artist shot of the cremated remains of Oregon State Hospital patients not claimed by their next of kin. Maisel photographed 100 of the 5,121 copper canisters that hold the remains, which had been stored for decades underground in a chamber prone to flooding. The images are arrestingly beautiful. Chemical changes in the canisters brought out richly hued patinas, and blooms of what might be mold create the effect of sand paintings shaken up by that obstinate child, Time. Maisel’s works are sweet tributes to unnamed and forgotten strangers, and portraits of life inevitably arising, phoenixlike, from the ashes. Nearby, another collection of strangers floats like suspended snowdrops just overhead. Judy Levy’s “Memory Cloud” is a collection of 35mm photographic slides in hundreds of small, frosted white viewers, hanging at different heights by delicate ball chain. These bitty portals to the past tell us something of the specific decades through the faded tones of the images and the styles of clothing and hair. A woman forever pulls a turkey from the oven; a jubilant horsebackrider will never dismount an indifferent, grass-munching equine; and three small blond boys, presumably brothers, lean close together, squinting in the eternal sun. A crowd forms at what seems to be a funeral as people in dark garments exit a cluster of black cars in an
explores themes of recollection and loss that are common to us all, some of the works address the subject of death more intimately than we are wont to, and contain taboo triggers. Methods of coping with loss and commemoration that were once in vogue now seem alien and curious, even morbid, such as the elaborate Victorian jewelry and art made from the hair of loved ones, and a Victorian portrait of a deceased little boy propped up and posed as if reading a book. Yet, this may be the only image the parents ever had taken of their son, their last opportunity to solidify his precious presence in their own temporary lives. In times past, deaths and funerals took place largely at home, and people had fewer means to diminish its heavy presence. Arguments both for and against our tendency to buffer ourselves against the reality of death flow easily. In response to our culture’s commercial anaesthetizing of the ravages of AIDS, Barton Beneš created “Brenda,” a powerful installation of dozens of wallmounted AIDS ribbons coated with the cremated ashes of his friend, an addict who died of AIDS in 1989. Reclaimed from slick, numb exploitation, the almost-infinity symbol is represented here as gritty reality, gray and textured with fragments of bone. Elizabeth Siegfried’s “Termina” is a poignant look at childlessness, and focused specifically on the acute awareness of being the endpoint of a branch of the family tree. This is a weight that many women bear heavily, and a subject that is often framed as a feminist or female issue, but is in fact a genderless issue of denying (or being denied) life’s basic yet complicating compulsion to procreate. Siegfried’s installation of black-and-white photographs depict generations of her female kin, reveling in the company of family. Beneath each woman’s photographs are her name, lifespan, and details of generations of progeny. Last is the artist’s grid, with some happy memories, some somber self-portraits, and a lot of blank, black areas standing in for what will never be come to be.

LECTURE | NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGY DAY
While my idea of a vacation includes some beach bumming with a good novel, I always want to geek out over what the local museums offer in terms of remnants of historic culture. On Saturday, October 19, the Rochester Museum and Science Center (657 East Ave.) and the Archaeological Institute of America Society of Rochester will host events and activities in honor of National Archaeology Day. The event takes place 11 a.m.-4 p.m., and includes kidfriendly activities such as coloring and stamping, artifact handling, and a shoebox dig. At 1 p.m., Michael Jarvis of the University of Rochester will give a lecture in the Bausch Auditorium on “Bermuda in Microcosm: History and Archaeology at Smiths Island, 1610-2013.” The event is included in admission to the museum, which is $13, $12 for senior and college students with ID, and $11 for ages 3-18. Kids ages 2 and under and members get in for free. For more information, call 271-4320, or visit rmsc.org. Future events hosted by AIA Society of Rochester include a lecture by Professor Marie-Henriette Gates in late January/early February on “Kinet Höyük (Turkey) and the Archaeology of Eastern Mediterranean Seaports,” a talk by Professor James Delgado on “The Great Museum of the Sea” on Thursday, February 27 at the Memorial Art Gallery, and Professor Sarah Nelson will speak on Thursday, April 3, on “The Gold Crowns of Silla (Korea) and the Tomb of a Queen.” — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY 740 University Ave Free 4732590. kathrynbonnez@gmail. com. wab.org.

Holding back the years “The Last Five Years” THROUGH OCTOBER 20 JCC CENTERSTAGE, 1200 EDGEWOOD AVE. $18-$26 | 461-2000, JCCCENTERSTAGE.COM [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
In his program notes for “The Last Five Years,” JCC Centerstage Artistic Director Ralph Meranto refers to the musical as “one of ‘those’ shows,” the type that people in the theater community get excited about working on, and one that becomes truly special to those who fall under its spell. It’s not the first time I’ve heard this show described in this way. Friends with a passion for musical theater, whose opinions I respect, have sung its praises for years. I admit that with all that build up, I had high expectations. So it’s with no small amount of disappointment to say that, outside of the outstanding performances from its two actors, “The Last Five Years” left me frustratingly cold. Granted, this isn’t an “easy” show. As I left the theater, I overheard at least one conversation between audience members remarking that they were thankful they’d read a plot summary beforehand or they’d have been lost completely. Written by Tony Award 26 CITY OCTOBER 16-22, 2013
winner Jason Robert Brown (“Parade”), “The Last Five Years” tells the story of the doomed five-year relationship between a young couple named Jamie and Cathy. They meet in Ohio, where she’s an aspiring actress and he’s a novelist whose career is just about to take off. He gets published and has to travel back and forth to New York City. She stays behind in Ohio, where she continues to try to find steady work. Over the years, the couple faces the challenges of maintaining a long-distance relationship, jealousy, and the strain placed on a romantic relationship when one partner finds success while the other struggles. It’s a fairly straightforward story, but what makes the show interesting is its structure. Jamie’s story is told chronologically, while Cathy’s is told in reverse, beginning with the end of their marriage. The audience is left to put the pieces together as we gradually get the full picture of their relationship together. If the show is challenging for the audience, it’s infinitely more so for the two actors who play Cathy and Jamie: they’re forced to carry the entire show on their own. Luckily, Janine Mercandetti and Carl Del Buono are more than up to the task. They both turn in heartfelt and moving performances that manage to wring every
ounce of emotion out of Brown’s songs. And the score is lovely, allowing the actors to demonstrate a wonderful range spanning a variety of musical genres. The catchiest song — and the one I came out of the theater still humming — was “The Schmuel Song,” a Klezmer-ish song sung by Jamie during the couple’s first Christmas together, and Del Buono sells the hell out of it. Mercandetti gets a few showcase numbers of her own, most notably “Climbing Uphill,” which takes place during one of Cathy’s auditions, as she wallows in her insecurities, both in her performance as well as with Jamie. Meranto’s direction of the performers allows for just enough of the characters’ personalities to shine through outside of the written words. There is a lot to like about “The Last Five Years.” While watching, I kept wondering exactly what was accounting for the distance I was feeling. I’m inclined to blame the non-linear structure, which both helps and hinders the show in many respects. It’s a clever bit of storytelling, and adds an extra dimension of emotional complexity to the material. But it also means that despite the fact that the actors are often on stage together, they only share the same emotional space for a few brief moments during one song, “The Next Ten Minutes,” when the couple meets in the middle of their stories, as Jamie proposes and they get married. We don’t get to see them truly happy at the same time at any other point. It makes for nice symmetry, but it also puts Cathy’s character at a disadvantage in terms of audience empathy, since she’s angry and bitter as soon as we meet her. The minimal, abstract set was also a source of a distraction. It consists of a series of circular platforms at varied heights made to look like clock faces, with several more hanging from the back of the stage. It’s clear what the scenic designer was going for, but its execution looked a little cheap considering what I know the JCC is capable of from previous productions. There’s a lot of ambition on display in “The Last Five Years,” and the musical has much it wants to say about relationships and how we relate to one another. But in the end, its ideas don’t coalesce in a way that’s dramatically satisfying. Similarly to the characters it depicts, whom I sympathized with but didn’t particularly like, it’s a show that I respected more than enjoyed.
RECREATION | FULL MOON VISTA CYCLOCROSS
If you are in search of a fitness challenge, here’s one of monumental proportions: Cyclocross at Ellison Park (395 Rich’s Dugway Road). For those who don’t know, cyclocross is basically cycling with obstacles that require the cycler to dismount their bike, run on foot while carrying the bike, get back on the bike, rinse and repeat. This year’s event features four international races and 24 amateur races. The age groups range from kids 9 and under to adults 55 and older, so there are chances for everyone to compete and win prizes. If you don’t want to compete, get in for free as a spectator and enjoy barbecue by Good Smoke and have a drink at the beer garden. The event takes place Saturday and Sunday, October 1920. The first race begins at 9:35 a.m. each day. Check out ellisoncyclocross.com for full schedule and other event details. — BY TREVOR LEWIS

SPECIAL EVENT | RMSC AFTER DARK
The past few times I’ve been to The Rochester Museum & Science Center (657 East Ave.), I’ve been in the manic company of nieces and nephews, pulled from what has caught my focus to engage with the little ones and what has captured their attention. The 21-and-over crowd will reclaim the museum on Friday, October 18, when RMSC will host a new event called RMSC After Dark, which is intended to be the first of many held throughout the year. The museum’s recent 1920’s-themed event, “Repeal!,” was so successful that organizers decided to create an RMSC After Dark brand. The science-fiction-themed event will be held 7-11 p.m. and include a “singing” Tesla coil lightning show in Electricity Theater, exhibits of wacky inventions from the RMSC collections, “alien-themed” food and out-of-this-world specialty drinks at a cash bar, access to the traveling exhibition, “Alien Worlds and Androids,” futuristic electro-dance music by GLITTERCVLT, sci-fi trivia, and classic sci-fi movies. Come dressed in your favorite sci-fi costume and participate in a contest for a chance to win prizes. Admission to the event is $15 for the general public or $12 for RMSC members, and tickets can be purchased at the RMSC Welcome Desk or by calling 697-1942 (use code #A676).

The espionage-thriller-meets-slapstick-comedy follows Englishman Richard Hannay’s encounters with dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and of course, devastatingly beautiful women. Four dexterous actors will play more than 150 characters in this homage to film noir and theatrical stagecraft.

BEST OF ROCHESTER
When I think “Hitchcock,” I don’t think “hilarity.” I think suspense, intrigue, and sharp wit, but I don’t expect my sides to be in stitches. Starting next week, Geva Theatre Center will present “The 39 Steps,” a fast-paced, comedic whodunit adapted by Patrick Barlow, from the John Buchan novel and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock.

[ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA

Based on an account by the title character and more important, on recent events, “Captain Phillips” confronts some compelling contemporary issues in both subject and method. To begin with, the picture belongs to that increasingly popular genre, the docudrama, which shows actual events in a somewhat fictionalized form, like the Iranian hostage crisis in “Argo” or the Bush administration’s

betrayal of the CIA operative Valerie Plame in “Fair Game.” Along with their close cousin, the documentary, such films serve to report on matters that the mainstream, allegedly liberal media neglect or even ignore. The new movie portrays the ordeal of Richard Phillips, captain of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama, boarded by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean in 2009. Aside from showing at some length his courage in the face of brutality, it also shows a cinematic version of the new face of piracy, no longer the swashbuckling adventures of Errol Flynn or the horror-film excesses of the Johnny Depp movies, but a violent, profitable, and decidedly unromantic endeavor practiced by desperate young men from the Horn of Africa. Presumably in the interests of fairness and even compassion, the director initially intercuts between Captain Phillips (Tom Hanks) and his captors. Phillips goes about his customary preparations for a command, packing, discussing problems with his wife, departing for the shipyard, checking out the condition of

his ship, and so forth. In Somalia a warlord of some kind, with a gang of armed thugs, recruits some impoverished young men in a seaside village, really a group of hovels, for a raid on any ship they can find sailing alone and therefore susceptible to an attack. From that point, the movie proceeds according to a kind of implacable fate, as the crew of the Maersk Alabama discover the presence of two fast boats approaching their enormous vessel and attempt everything they can to repel the attackers. The audience understands and anticipates the course of a known series of events, which paradoxically in no way diminishes the suspense and tension of “Captain Phillips.” Sometimes, equally paradoxically, nothing is more surprising than the expected. Much of the picture proceeds like a documentary, grounding the action in innumerable details of the ship’s operation, as the camera traverses the length and depth of the huge ship, about the size of an apartment building, showing all the high-tech navigation and communication instruments, the various measures of defense, and yet the surprising vulnerability of the craft. In contrast, inhabitants of a terribly poor region, barely a nation, lacking the military equipment of the West, the pirates possess automatic weapons, communicate with their mother ship, a fishing trawler, via two-way radio, eavesdrop on the captain’s own messages, and even use radar to track their target.

It’s a small world after all “Escape From Tomorrow” COMING SOON TO THE LITTLE
“Zero Charisma” NOW AVAILABLE ON VIDEO ON DEMAND [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
all the efforts of the captain and his crew, they succeed in their mission. The actors, all of them except the star unfamiliar names and faces, convey an entirely convincing authenticity, appropriate for the documentary feel of the movie; no one on the ship’s crew or the Somali gang seems to be acting. The rapid camera cuts, tight close-ups, and the incessant screaming of the pirates intensify the claustrophobic atmosphere of fear and desperation on the lifeboat that his captors use to escape with Captain Phillips. That lifeboat, incidentally, nicely underlines the advances in nautical technology — it’s a swift, nifty little craft crammed with survival gear, not the rubber raft of the World War II submarine flicks. Whatever his skills at light comedy and breezy dialogue, Tom Hanks demonstrates a genuine depth as the protagonist, an ordinary man trying to save his ship, his crew, and himself from a gang of heavily armed, irrational, and very jittery thugs. He tries to reason with them, endures mistreatment, all the while demonstrating credible courage without a hint of heroic posturing; it’s a powerful, controlled performance. It’s worth noting that the attack presented Barack Obama with his first foreign policy crisis and that the Navy SEALs responded brilliantly. It’s also worth noting that Rush Limbaugh, the GOP pope, reported that President Obama ordered the killing of three unarmed black teenagers who were trying to surrender, initiating the stream of hatred and falsehoods that sustains the opposition to this day.
When it premiered at Sundance last January, “Escape From Tomorrow” quickly gained notoriety based in large part on the unusual way in which it was filmed. To capture his unique vision of the corporate culture’s dark underbelly, director Randy Moore shot his movie without permission in the Walt Disney World and Disneyland theme parks. In a daring bit of guerilla filmmaking, his bare-bones crew snuck handheld cameras into the parks and filmed the actors amidst the actual crowds of vacationing families. Besides being filmed illegally, the film doesn’t exactly depict Disney in the best light, so naturally it wasn’t expected to have much of a life following its festival debut. Most predicted that Disney would threaten legal action if the film was ever released, and “Escape From Tomorrow” would be doomed to disappear and eventually fade into obscurity. But shockingly, the company has (thus far) remained completely silent about the movie, choosing instead to simply not acknowledge that it exists at all. And so for

now, audiences are free to enjoy the utterly bizarre surrealist-sci-fi-horror-comedy without worrying that Mickey’s lawyers will come pounding at their door (though the film’s official website includes a counter ticking off the number of days that the filmmakers haven’t been sued). Currently available On Demand, “Escape From Tomorrow” will have a theatrical release in Rochester when it gets a brief run at the Little Theatre starting on October 26. Family man Jim White (Roy Abramsohn) begins the last day of his Florida family vacation by receiving a phone call from his boss kindly informing him that he no longer has a job. But with little time to fully process this development, Jim heads off to spend a day at the park with his wife (Elena Schuber) and two adorable children in tow. Once in the park, however, Jim starts to lose it. Demonic faces appear to him on “It’s a Small World,” he hallucinates his wife saying some less than loving things to him, and he starts obsessively following around a pair of teenage French girls. Jim’s losing his grip on reality, but it’s unclear whether he’s having a nervous breakdown, or there’s something insidious happening at the “Happiest Place on Earth”™. There’s a lot of ideas bouncing around amidst all the lunacy, from the danger in chasing after lost youth to the inescapable nature of our corporate-controlled culture, as well as a commendable commitment to being as trippy and weird as possible. These ideas are undermined slightly by the film’s inconsistent execution (perhaps unavoidable considering its production method) and sometimes juvenile tone. Also, its female characters are…not the best. Still, it’s totally worth seeing, if only for the sheer audacity of its conceit. “Escape From Tomorrow” is Moore’s first film, and with such an auspicious debut, it’s a safe bet we’ll be hearing a lot more from him in the years to come.
Also released on On Demand last week,
“Zero Charisma” is a dark, satirical sendup of nerd culture that deftly sidesteps stereotypes or passing judgment on its characters. From first-time directors Katie Graham and Andrew Matthews (who also wrote the screenplay), the film focuses on how geeky interests have become mainstream, and what it truly means to be a nerd. The story follows Scott (Sam Eidson, in a boldly unsympathetic performance), a burly, uptight, control freak who lives with his grandmother, and whose entire life revolves around his role as game master of a Dungeon & Dragonsesque tabletop RPG of his own design. His life, already held together by a very thin thread, begins to unravel, first when he’s forced to find a new player for his longrunning gaming group, and then when his estranged mother suddenly re-enters his life. Scott’s gaming problems at first seem to be solved when he recruits Miles (Garrett Graham), a “hipster” nerd who is handsome, charming, and has an interest in RPGs. But when Miles seems to be stealing Scott’s group of friends out from under him, Scott starts to see a scapegoat for everything that’s gone wrong in his life. Refusing to be undermined by what he sees as a tourist in the world of geekdom, a rivalry begins between the two men, which quickly spirals out of control. Scott and Miles each represent different sides of the nerd coin, and while Matthews’ script mostly avoids taking sides, this is definitely Scott’s story. Unfortunately, this means Miles’ character gets short shrift in the development department, making their battle of wills a little more one-sided than I would have liked. But Scott is a fantastic character; while the script often makes him as unlikeable as possible, it always makes sure we understand him, and Eidson never loses sight of his humanity. His story is funny, affectionate, and ultimately a little heartbreaking.

Charmer in Corn Hill
4 Greenwood Street Sometimes with smaller homes, the beauty of the exterior can hide unforeseen challenges within: cramped rooms, odd layouts, or poorly done renovations that take away from the home’s character and history. The key question with these properties is: Has the space been used wisely and not wasted? For the cozy house located at 4 Greenwood Street, in the heart of Corn Hill, recent renovations have answered that question with a resounding “yes.” Built in 1850, the house’s exterior features will bring you straight back in time. The windows, shutters and wood clapboards all are in pristine shape. Step through the welcoming side entrance and you will find a contemporary residence that boasts a welldesigned flow and layout. The downstairs has an airy open floor plan, made up of two large rooms, which makes the entire floor feel much larger than the actual square footage. The living room is bright with light, courtesy of four large picture windows and gleaming hardwood floors. Stay warm on cold nights with the updated gas fireplace framed by an artistic stone mantel. The eat-in kitchen is spacious and stunning. It is equipped with granite countertops, a breakfast bar island, and new appliances. The warm, welcoming space is large enough to be a center dining and entertaining area. Having a large gathering? No problem! You can easily take the party outdoors. A door in the kitchen leads to the ultra-private, enclosed backyard patio—perfect for outdoor entertaining!
A charming spiral staircase is the perfect portal from the main living space to the second floor. The exposed beams and a leaded-glass window viewable on the way up provide a reminder of the solid construction and craftsmanship of this venerable home. Partitioned into three distinct spaces are a large master bedroom, a full bath, and an open, airy office area. The highlight of the master bedroom is the exposed brick of the chimney, flanked by two large picture windows. Built-in storage wraps around the room. The bathroom is fully remodeled, with new tile floors, double sinks, and a spacious tiled shower. Return to the spiral staircase to descend down to the basement, where you’ll find a fully renovated room. With plenty of light flooding through the large windows, this bonus space can be put to good use as a family room or bedroom. This property offers approximately 1,016 square feet of living space and is listed at $145,000. Greenwood Street is located in the heart of Corn Hill, Rochester’s oldest residential neighborhood. It is a leafy, quiet neighborhood filled with history and character and walkable to downtown and Corn Hill Landing. Contact Dean Popoli of RE/MAX Plus at 585-738-0021 for more information. by Peter Smith Peter lives and works in Rochester and is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
— News of the Weird first reported successful “stool implants” among family members in 2007 (to cure infections such as C. difficile by introducing the donor’s “good” microbes to overcome an imbalance of “bad” bacteria in a relative’s intestine). In 2012, however, two University of California, Davis, neurosurgeons boldly extended the cutting-edge treatment for three patients with a highly malignant brain tumor unresponsive to treatment. The doctors tried infusing bowel bacteria directly into the tumor, but the patients died, nonetheless. Although the patients had given fully informed consent, the school in August 2013 pressured Drs. J. Paul Muizelaar and Rudolph Schrot to resign for having violated internal and FDA procedures. — It is well known that hospitals charge for medical supplies far in excess of what the products would cost at drugstores, but an August New York Times investigation of “saline drips” vividly demonstrated the disconnect. Though Medicare reimburses $1.07 for a 1-liter plastic bag of saltwater (supplied by a subsidiary of Morton Salt), White Plains (N.Y.) Hospital charged patients’ insurance companies like Aetna $91 per bag. Other hospitals decline to charge per-bag, listing only “IV therapy” of, for example, $787 for hooking up the drip. — From the world’s cosmetic-surgery capital (South Korea, where one woman in five has had at least one procedure) comes the “Smile Lipt” offered by Aone Plastic Surgery in the city of Yongin, designed to produce a permanent smile (associated with success). The Smile Lipt turns downward-drooping lip corners upward, to
allow a persistent smile resembling that of Batman’s nemesis, The Joker. — Among the more repugnant paraphilias covered in News of the Weird is toilet-peeping -- men who set up underneath the seats in public outhouses (sometimes wearing a raincoat) and wait for a user to answer nature’s call. In August, Kenneth Enlow, 52, pleaded guilty after a woman found him the month before in a privy in White Water Park in Tulsa County, Okla., “standing with his head and shoulders out of the hole ... covered in feces,” according to a deputy. Enlow’s initial explanation was that his girlfriend had knocked him unconscious with a tire iron and dumped him there. — Another Hard-Working Lawyer: The Dayton Daily News reported in September that an audit of Dayton lawyer Ben Swift (the highest-paid court-appointed public defender in Ohio, at $142,900 in a recent year) revealed several invoices demanding government payment for workdays of more than 20 hours, and in one case, 29. Swift’s attorney said his client was guilty only of bad record-keeping. — Patients with gargantuan tumors, but intimidated by the cost of treatment, create the possibility that by the time they can afford an operation, the tumor itself will be heavier than the post-surgery patient. A 63-year-old man in Bakersfield, Calif., finally had surgery in August, after 14 years’ waiting during which his set of tumors grew to 200 pounds. Bakersfield surgeon Vip Dev noted that the sprawled tumors dragged the floor when the man sat and that the surgery was complicated by the patient’s shape, which could not be accommodated by the hospital’s MRI and CT scan machines.

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll attract a diverse range of partners. Engage in pastimes you find exhilarating and keep any suitor you meet guessing for the time being. Taking a moment to enjoy life and to see what each individual you meet has to offer will lead to the best long-term partner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A mental connection will be what counts. If you cannot relate to someone or you don’t have the same values and life goals, it’s best to take a pass and move on to someone new. Passion is highlighted, but physical chemistry alone won’t bring you closer to a commitment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep it real in the bedroom and honest when you are talking about long-term commitment. Venturing down a path that is destined to be a disaster is likely if you don’t play fair and lay down your ground rules right from the beginning. Share your true feelings. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A change of heart and plans is apparent if you are overly possessive. Giving the person you love space will create a healthy relationship with the potential to go the distance. If you cannot trust the one you are with, you are with the wrong one.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll find plenty of action if you get out and socialize. Don’t let anyone restrict your freedom. Be prepared to jump ship and move on to someone who shares your values and can relate to your flirtatious and outgoing personality. Choose someone who has as much charisma as you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Lean on your friends for help. Don’t believe everything someone looking for a quick adventure has to say. You are better off to protect your heart and rely on the people who care about you most for advice when it comes to a fast-talking lover taking advantage of you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Easy does it. When it comes to love, you will attract all sorts of partners. Expect to encounter someone who is aggressive and persistent. You may be attracted to the attention you are receiving, but let caution be your guide. Protect your reputation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t rule out someone who differs from you. An unusual relationship is likely to develop with someone you least expect. Follow through and see where it leads, and you will not be disappointed. Don’t question your differences -- embrace what you have to offer each other.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Explore new venues, avenues, people, places and pastimes. It’s the element of surprise and the need for something different that will lead you in totally unique directions when it comes to love. Enjoy the moment, but be aware of the obstacles involved. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Past lovers will surface and should be granted a second chance. Don’t let a stubborn attitude stand between you and your happiness. Use your experience and expertise, and you can control the situation and the future. Don’t turn down a chance to be with someone special.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t expect friends or family to be happy with your choice of partners. You’ll be attracted to someone who lives life on the edge. Excitement is within reach, as is an experimental look at love and making a rather unusual but fulfilling life with someone unique. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look at the long-term possibilities and make your romantic choice based on what you can accomplish with your partner, not your physical attraction to someone. Being swept off your feet is fun, but it doesn’t usually end in laughter. Focus on what’s actually being offered.
