To-Do Tonight: Models, Macs and more

Ready for a diverse night? Let’s start at Roe where it’s Top Model Tuesdays. Tyra Banks has nothing to do with this, but Dominick Young does. We’re hoping Tark is a judge.


Elsewhere on the club circuit, Aldo’s debuts its Ménage Tuesdays. You know, because last week’s new Tattoo Tuesdays proved not to be classy enough.



And now, we’ll make the very seamless transition to the world of geek –The Fresno Macintosh Users Group is having a session with Macworld senior editor Christopher Breen. Here are the deets. After party at Aldo’s, right?

MACWORLD Magazine Senior Editor Christopher Breen will return to Fresno to address the Fresno Macintosh Users Group (FMUG) on Tuesday, October 6, at its regular monthly meeting at 7:00 p.m, at the University of California Center, 550 E. Shaw Avenue, Fresno. Breen’s topic is “Things They Won’t Tell You at the Apple Store.” The meeting is open to the public.

The Mac 101 session at 6 p.m. will demonstrate how to install Snow Leopard, the newest Macintosh program.

Finally, for your Tuesday night indie rock fix, head over to Starline where Kid Kosovo is headlining. No flier, but get more details over at the slick new Love The Captive Web site. Or forget the details and just check out the Web site because it’s a cool idea by a cool local concert promoter, trying to do something beyond just promoting itself and its shows.

Macs rule.

D says:

Wow, you’d think a bunch of computer nerds would have a nicer website.

Childers says:

Wow…to think there exists an entire GROUP of Mac users geekier than me. Would have thought that impossible only minutes ago. Maybe there is hope for me yet.
Or not.

Nancy says:

Y’all…I didn’t even get to the Mac section. I am still stumped by what a “cutiest face 4 MySpace” might look like since ‘cutiest’ ISN’T EVEN A WORD!!!

Sorry…I’m a little overwrought from having to deal with all the D-bag drivers (who ALL have broken turn signals, apparently) on my beloved Blackstone Ave earlier.
