IBWFTUSPOHGFFMJOHTBCPVUUIFFSB "The show that had the biggest imi5IFTIPXUIBUIBEUIFCJHHFTUJN pact on me was 'Pippin' (also written by QBDUPONFXBTA1JQQJO BMTPXSJUUFOCZ Schwartz), about one of the sons of the 4DIXBSU[ BCPVUPOFPGUIFTPOTPGUIF 9th-century emperor Charlemagne trying UIDFOUVSZFNQFSPS$IBSMFNBHOFUSZJOH to find his place in the world," said Susan UPmOEIJTQMBDFJOUIFXPSME wTBJE4VTBO Reilly. 3FJMMZ "Crazy idea for a musical, but it worked i$SB[ZJEFBGPSBNVTJDBM CVUJUXPSLFE - terrific songs, knock-out choreograoUFSSJmDTPOHT LOPDLPVUDIPSFPHSB phy by the great Bob Fosse, dynamite QIZCZUIFHSFBU#PC'PTTF EZOBNJUF performances and a meaningful subject QFSGPSNBODFTBOEBNFBOJOHGVMTVCKFDU for a young person trying to find her place GPSBZPVOHQFSTPOUSZJOHUPmOEIFSQMBDF in the world.

I IPUTBOEXJDIFTBMXBZTTFFNUPUBTUFGSFTI* happen to love the pasta. IBQQFOUPMPWFUIFQBTUB I stopped in for lunch with a friend the other *TUPQQFEJOGPSMVODIXJUIBGSJFOEUIFPUIFS day in between appointments. I ordered a EBZJOCFUXFFOBQQPJOUNFOUT*PSEFSFEB massive plate of ziti with three meatballs NBTTJWFQMBUFPG[JUJXJUIUISFFNFBUCBMMT for $7.45.1 also got a small side salad with GPS*BMTPHPUBTNBMMTJEFTBMBEXJUI an amazing homemade creamy Greek salad BOBNB[JOHIPNFNBEFDSFBNZ(SFFLTBMBE dressing.

It was easy to 5IFLFZXBTUIFNFBUCBMMT*UXBTFBTZUP taste that they were freshly made, and almost UBTUFUIBUUIFZXFSFGSFTIMZNBEF BOEBMNPTU certainly made on the premises.

They tasted something like the meatballs [FO5IFZUBTUFETPNFUIJOHMJLFUIFNFBUCBMMT my mom used to make. NZNPNVTFEUPNBLF The red sauce was tangy and chunked with 5IFSFETBVDFXBTUBOHZBOEDIVOLFEXJUI large bits of tomatoes. The sauce was a bit MBSHFCJUTPGUPNBUPFT5IFTBVDFXBTBCJU runny for my taste, but it passed all my interSVOOZGPSNZUBTUF CVUJUQBTTFEBMMNZJOUFS nal checks otherwise.

QFSDFOUBMDPIPM BOEJTBHSFBU 5.9 percent alcohol, and is a great beer for drinking and relaxing. CFFSGPSESJOLJOHBOESFMBYJOH 5IF'MFNJTI"MFIBTBCJUPG The Flemish Ale has a bit of sourness from the Brettanamyces TPVSOFTTGSPNUIF#SFUUBOBNZDFT yeast and some sweetness from ZFBTUBOETPNFTXFFUOFTTGSPN fresh Belgian cherries. This is a GSFTI#FMHJBODIFSSJFT5IJTJTB good beer, but not to my personal HPPECFFS CVUOPUUPNZQFSTPOBM liking - I'm just not a big fan of MJLJOHo*NKVTUOPUBCJHGBOPG cherries. It costs $11.79 for a 750DIFSSJFT*UDPTUTGPSB milliliter bottle. NJMMJMJUFSCPUUMF The Rum Cask Ale is unique and 5IF3VN$BTL"MFJTVOJRVFBOE a little bit off the wall.

PBLBMPOHXJUIUIFIPQTBOENBMU It's not a beer you could drink a lot *UTOPUBCFFSZPVDPVMEESJOLBMPU of, but it is something to try.

THE MAIL BROUGHT a 5)&."*-#306()5B sampling of Samuel Adams beers, TBNQMJOHPG4BNVFM"EBNTCFFST  three of which I had not tried: UISFFPGXIJDI*IBEOPUUSJFE Whitewater IPA, Alpine Spring 8IJUFXBUFS*1" "MQJOF4QSJOH and Mighty Oak Ale. All three BOE.JHIUZ0BL"MF"MMUISFF are part of the current Brewer's BSFQBSUPGUIFDVSSFOU#SFXFST Choice 12-pack, retailing for $IPJDFQBDL SFUBJMJOHGPS $13.99.  My least favorite of the three .ZMFBTUGBWPSJUFPGUIFUISFF was the Whitewater IPA, another XBTUIF8IJUFXBUFS*1" BOPUIFS

GVTJPOPG*1"BOEXIJUFCFFS*UT fusion of IPA and white beer. It's more witbier than IPA, with a NPSFXJUCJFSUIBO*1" XJUIB cloudy golden color and flavors of DMPVEZHPMEFODPMPSBOEnBWPSTPG copycat brewing. This style was inDPQZDBUCSFXJOH5IJTTUZMFXBTJO vented only a couple of years ago WFOUFEPOMZBDPVQMFPGZFBSTBHP - now everybody is brewing one, oOPXFWFSZCPEZJTCSFXJOHPOF  and I am already tired of it. BOE*BNBMSFBEZUJSFEPGJU The Mighty Oak Ale was only 5IF.JHIUZ0BL"MFXBTPOMZ lightly oaked rather than mightily MJHIUMZPBLFESBUIFSUIBONJHIUJMZ oaked, but had a nice maltiness PBLFE CVUIBEBOJDFNBMUJOFTT and sweetness, and was a crysBOETXFFUOFTT BOEXBTBDSZT tal-clear amber color. It had fairly UBMDMFBSBNCFSDPMPS*UIBEGBJSMZ heavy carbonation and 5.7 percent IFBWZDBSCPOBUJPOBOEQFSDFOU alcohol. BMDPIPM The Alpine Spring was my favor5IF"MQJOF4QSJOHXBTNZGBWPS ite of the three. The 5.5-percent JUFPGUIFUISFF5IFQFSDFOU alcohol lager is unfiltered, so it's BMDPIPMMBHFSJTVOmMUFSFE TPJUT just a little bit cloudy, and the hops KVTUBMJUUMFCJUDMPVEZ BOEUIFIPQT have a bit of citrus in them. It's IBWFBCJUPGDJUSVTJOUIFN*UT quite malty for a lager, and has a RVJUFNBMUZGPSBMBHFS BOEIBTB nice dry finish. OJDFESZmOJTI Finally, I had some of Sebago's 'JOBMMZ *IBETPNFPG4FCBHPT Midnight Porter, which is beer .JEOJHIU1PSUFS XIJDIJTCFFS they brewed in the past but not UIFZCSFXFEJOUIFQBTUCVUOPU for a couple of years. This has a GPSBDPVQMFPGZFBST5IJTIBTB nice bit of chocolate malt, and is OJDFCJUPGDIPDPMBUFNBMU BOEJT an easy-drinking dark beer for the BOFBTZESJOLJOHEBSLCFFSGPSUIF days of late winter.

Sheldon, who has played off and on with Frampton all XIPIBTQMBZFEPGGBOEPOXJUI'SBNQUPOBMM these years, is on the tour with him. UIFTFZFBST JTPOUIFUPVSXJUIIJN During the tour, Frampton and his band have %VSJOHUIFUPVS 'SBNQUPOBOEIJTCBOEIBWF been playing three-hour shows that include all CFFOQMBZJOHUISFFIPVSTIPXTUIBUJODMVEFBMM the songs from "Frampton Comes Alive!" plus UIFTPOHTGSPNi'SBNQUPO$PNFT"MJWFwQMVT others from his career. PUIFSTGSPNIJTDBSFFS 4IFMEPOUIJOLTUIFBMCVNTTVDDFTTXBTMBSHF Sheldon thinks the album's success was largely due to the songs. "They still sound great," he MZEVFUPUIFTPOHTi5IFZTUJMMTPVOEHSFBU wIF said. But another reason was the live energy TBJE#VUBOPUIFSSFBTPOXBTUIFMJWFFOFSHZ of the album and the fact that the audience is a PGUIFBMCVNBOEUIFGBDUUIBUUIFBVEJFODFJTB huge part of the record. IVHFQBSUPGUIFSFDPSE Sheldon said that wasn't an accident. Framp4IFMEPOTBJEUIBUXBTOUBOBDDJEFOU'SBNQ ton set out to make and market a live album, UPOTFUPVUUPNBLFBOENBSLFUBMJWFBMCVN  and he auditioned his band specifically for that BOEIFBVEJUJPOFEIJTCBOETQFDJmDBMMZGPSUIBU purpose. Sheldon was a young musician living QVSQPTF4IFMEPOXBTBZPVOHNVTJDJBOMJWJOH in Los Angeles when he heard about FrampJO-PT"OHFMFTXIFOIFIFBSEBCPVU'SBNQ ton's search. UPOTTFBSDI "I think Peter had called me in as a last resort. i*UIJOL1FUFSIBEDBMMFENFJOBTBMBTUSFTPSU I rolled my amp into the hotel (where Framp*SPMMFENZBNQJOUPUIFIPUFM XIFSF'SBNQ ton was staying) and auditioned right there. A UPOXBTTUBZJOH BOEBVEJUJPOFESJHIUUIFSF" month later, we were off on tour," said Sheldon. NPOUIMBUFS XFXFSFPGGPOUPVS wTBJE4IFMEPO "The brilliant thing about Peter was that he i5IFCSJMMJBOUUIJOHBCPVU1FUFSXBTUIBUIF knew that this could happen, that people really LOFXUIBUUIJTDPVMEIBQQFO UIBUQFPQMFSFBMMZ wanted live albums and they could be big.

IFBSUIFNw The songs on the album are still played on 5IFTPOHTPOUIFBMCVNBSFTUJMMQMBZFEPO rock radio today, and stand out for their wonSPDLSBEJPUPEBZ BOETUBOEPVUGPSUIFJSXPO derful crowd interaction.

up with something people don't already VQXJUITPNFUIJOHQFPQMFEPOUBMSFBEZ have. Which is why advertising executive IBWF8IJDIJTXIZBEWFSUJTJOHFYFDVUJWF Gary Dahl showed a solid stroke of bril(BSZ%BIMTIPXFEBTPMJETUSPLFPGCSJM liance when he took ordinary stones and MJBODFXIFOIFUPPLPSEJOBSZTUPOFTBOE elevated them to the status of pet rocks. FMFWBUFEUIFNUPUIFTUBUVTPGQFUSPDLT This short-lived fad peaked in 1975, but 5IJTTIPSUMJWFEGBEQFBLFEJO CVU the product's inherent absurdity causes UIFQSPEVDUTJOIFSFOUBCTVSEJUZDBVTFT it to live on in popular culture. Today, if JUUPMJWFPOJOQPQVMBSDVMUVSF5PEBZ JG you want a pet rock, you'll need to make ZPVXBOUBQFUSPDL ZPVMMOFFEUPNBLF your own or settle for a facsimile version ZPVSPXOPSTFUUMFGPSBGBDTJNJMFWFSTJPO called the USB Pet Rock that plugs into DBMMFEUIF64#1FU3PDLUIBUQMVHTJOUP your computer and does... well, no one ZPVSDPNQVUFSBOEEPFTyXFMM OPPOF is exactly sure. Turns out the more pet JTFYBDUMZTVSF5VSOTPVUUIFNPSFQFU rocks change, the more they stay the SPDLTDIBOHF UIFNPSFUIFZTUBZUIF same. TBNF FUNKY FORMALWEAR: The age of '6/,:'03."-8&"35IFBHFPG disco could not be satisfied with the staid EJTDPDPVMEOPUCFTBUJTmFEXJUIUIFTUBJE black dinner jacket, white shirt and black CMBDLEJOOFSKBDLFU XIJUFTIJSUBOECMBDL bow tie. Instead, when guys wanted to CPXUJF*OTUFBE XIFOHVZTXBOUFEUP look sophisticated, they donned threeMPPLTPQIJTUJDBUFE UIFZEPOOFEUISFF piece suits (a la "Saturday Night Fever") QJFDFTVJUT BMBi4BUVSEBZ/JHIU'FWFSw  or picked tuxedos in colors such as white, PSQJDLFEUVYFEPTJODPMPSTTVDIBTXIJUF  maroon, lime green or powder blue. NBSPPO MJNFHSFFOPSQPXEFSCMVF Plain front shirts were too tame for this 1MBJOGSPOUTIJSUTXFSFUPPUBNFGPSUIJT high-strung decade, and dress shirts with IJHITUSVOHEFDBEF BOEESFTTTIJSUTXJUI ruffled fronts took their place. Those who SVGnFEGSPOUTUPPLUIFJSQMBDF5IPTFXIP needed an extra edge of glam went with OFFEFEBOFYUSBFEHFPGHMBNXFOUXJUI the polished look you can only achieve UIFQPMJTIFEMPPLZPVDBOPOMZBDIJFWF with a crushed-velvet tuxedo. XJUIBDSVTIFEWFMWFUUVYFEP STREAKING: Running nude through 453&",*/(3VOOJOHOVEFUISPVHI public places has a long (or not so long, QVCMJDQMBDFTIBTBMPOH PSOPUTPMPOH  depending on the streaker) history. But EFQFOEJOHPOUIFTUSFBLFS IJTUPSZ#VU in the freewheeling 70s, it erupted into JOUIFGSFFXIFFMJOHT JUFSVQUFEJOUP a full-frontal pop culture trend. Even BGVMMGSPOUBMQPQDVMUVSFUSFOE&WFO Snoopy got in on the stripped-down fun. 4OPPQZHPUJOPOUIFTUSJQQFEEPXOGVO But the most memorable streaking mo#VUUIFNPTUNFNPSBCMFTUSFBLJOHNP ment came when Robert Opel ran naked NFOUDBNFXIFO3PCFSU0QFMSBOOBLFE across the stage flashing the peace sign BDSPTTUIFTUBHFnBTIJOHUIFQFBDFTJHO during the 1974 Academy Awards. David EVSJOHUIF"DBEFNZ"XBSET%BWJE Niven, who was on stage at the time, /JWFO XIPXBTPOTUBHFBUUIFUJNF  took it all in stride, remarking: "Isn't it UPPLJUBMMJOTUSJEF SFNBSLJOHi*TOUJU fascinating to think that probably the only GBTDJOBUJOHUPUIJOLUIBUQSPCBCMZUIFPOMZ laugh that man will ever get in his life is MBVHIUIBUNBOXJMMFWFSHFUJOIJTMJGFJT by stripping off and showing his shortCZTUSJQQJOHPGGBOETIPXJOHIJTTIPSU comings?"

"it" look for any girl who dreamed of beiJUwMPPLGPSBOZHJSMXIPESFBNFEPGCF ing one of Charlie's Angels. Those who JOHPOFPG$IBSMJFT"OHFMT5IPTFXIP wanted a more girl-next-door look went XBOUFEBNPSFHJSMOFYUEPPSMPPLXFOU with the wedge haircut popularized by XJUIUIFXFEHFIBJSDVUQPQVMBSJ[FECZ Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill. 0MZNQJDmHVSFTLBUFS%PSPUIZ)BNJMM And anyone who had the curls to support "OEBOZPOFXIPIBEUIFDVSMTUPTVQQPSU it took their hair vertical with an afro. JUUPPLUIFJSIBJSWFSUJDBMXJUIBOBGSP MOOD RINGS: For those who felt .00%3*/(4'PSUIPTFXIPGFMU out of touch with their emotions, the PVUPGUPVDIXJUIUIFJSFNPUJPOT UIF 70s served up a perfect solution: The TTFSWFEVQBQFSGFDUTPMVUJPO5IF mood ring.

the doctor ordered if you have trouble UIFEPDUPSPSEFSFEJGZPVIBWFUSPVCMF determining when you're calm and when EFUFSNJOJOHXIFOZPVSFDBMNBOEXIFO you're having an absolute meltdown. ZPVSFIBWJOHBOBCTPMVUFNFMUEPXO PONG: Don't tell today's kids with 10/(%POUUFMMUPEBZTLJETXJUI their fancy iPads, Wiis and Xbox 360s, UIFJSGBODZJ1BET 8JJTBOE9CPYT  but in the 70s, the coolest computer CVUJOUIFT UIFDPPMFTUDPNQVUFS game involved two lines and a bouncing HBNFJOWPMWFEUXPMJOFTBOEBCPVODJOH ball. Pong started out as an arcade video CBMM1POHTUBSUFEPVUBTBOBSDBEFWJEFP game, and later migrated into people's HBNF BOEMBUFSNJHSBUFEJOUPQFPQMFT living rooms. Unlike today's video games, MJWJOHSPPNT6OMJLFUPEBZTWJEFPHBNFT  which require sophisticated controlXIJDISFRVJSFTPQIJTUJDBUFEDPOUSPM lers and cheat codes to advance to new MFSTBOEDIFBUDPEFTUPBEWBODFUPOFX levels, Pong only required a flexible wrist MFWFMT 1POHPOMZSFRVJSFEBnFYJCMFXSJTU capable of operating a joystick. DBQBCMFPGPQFSBUJOHBKPZTUJDL LAVA LAMPS: Any decorator aiming -"7"-".14"OZEFDPSBUPSBJNJOH to reproduce a 70s interior is required UPSFQSPEVDFBTJOUFSJPSJTSFRVJSFE to install a lava lamp in a place of honor. UPJOTUBMMBMBWBMBNQJOBQMBDFPGIPOPS These psychedelic lighting fixtures were 5IFTFQTZDIFEFMJDMJHIUJOHmYUVSFTXFSF invented in the '60s, and continued to be JOWFOUFEJOUIFT BOEDPOUJOVFEUPCF a popular interior design element during BQPQVMBSJOUFSJPSEFTJHOFMFNFOUEVSJOH the following decade. Sure, the lamps UIFGPMMPXJOHEFDBEF4VSF UIFMBNQT have an appealing space-age quality, but IBWFBOBQQFBMJOHTQBDFBHFRVBMJUZ CVU fans no doubt have fond memories of how GBOTOPEPVCUIBWFGPOENFNPSJFTPGIPX well the groovy light show paired with the XFMMUIFHSPPWZMJHIUTIPXQBJSFEXJUIUIF decade's mind-altering substances. EFDBEFTNJOEBMUFSJOHTVCTUBODFT SEA-MONKEYS: Brine shrimp sound 4&".0/,&:4#SJOFTISJNQTPVOE boring and scientific, so marketer Harold CPSJOHBOETDJFOUJmD TPNBSLFUFS)BSPME von Braunhut decided to rename them WPO#SBVOIVUEFDJEFEUPSFOBNFUIFN with the much catchier moniker SeaXJUIUIFNVDIDBUDIJFSNPOJLFS4FB Monkeys, and in the process created .POLFZT BOEJOUIFQSPDFTTDSFBUFE an aquatic craze. Spurred on by grossly BOBRVBUJDDSB[F4QVSSFEPOCZHSPTTMZ unrealistic ads in comic books and on VOSFBMJTUJDBETJODPNJDCPPLTBOEPO TV, millions of kids dreamt of the mas57 NJMMJPOTPGLJETESFBNUPGUIFNBT sive Sea-Monkey empire they'd oversee TJWF4FB.POLFZFNQJSFUIFZEPWFSTFF one day. That is, until they came home POFEBZ5IBUJT VOUJMUIFZDBNFIPNF and their Sea-Monkeys were all floating BOEUIFJS4FB.POLFZTXFSFBMMnPBUJOH belly-up, and they spent the rest of the CFMMZVQ BOEUIFZTQFOUUIFSFTUPGUIF day holding an elaborate funeral in the EBZIPMEJOHBOFMBCPSBUFGVOFSBMJOUIF backyard. CBDLZBSE FAUX WOOD PANELING: Natural '"69800%1"/&-*/(/BUVSBM materials were all the rage in the 70s, but NBUFSJBMTXFSFBMMUIFSBHFJOUIFT CVU so were polyester pants. This may explain TPXFSFQPMZFTUFSQBOUT5IJTNBZFYQMBJO why homeowners displayed an unnatural XIZIPNFPXOFSTEJTQMBZFEBOVOOBUVSBM fondness for fake wood paneling.

BOZHFOSF FWFS WORST: "Bruce Lee Fights Back From the 80345i#SVDF-FF'JHIUT#BDL'SPNUIF Grave" (1976): As if to prove how irreplaceable (SBWFw  "TJGUPQSPWFIPXJSSFQMBDFBCMF Lee was, an entire industry sprang up (called -FFXBT BOFOUJSFJOEVTUSZTQSBOHVQ DBMMFE "Bruceploitation") after Lee's death, churning i#SVDFQMPJUBUJPOw BGUFS-FFTEFBUI DIVSOJOH out martial-arts knockoffs capitalizing on the PVUNBSUJBMBSUTLOPDLPGGTDBQJUBMJ[JOHPOUIF man's legacy.
