This weekend brought a few new adventures for me — so I’m calling this the “Virgin Excursions” edition of Weekend Rewind. In the “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours” spirit, go ahead and tell me about your adventures in the comments.
It was A.C.’s Comedy Connection’s second show, but my first time checking out on of their offerings. It was definitely a good time and there was a good crowd there. Brian Scolaro was my favorite of the night. Once-local guy Darren Carter also performed, and I tried to grab the “Fresno-y” part of his routine (warning: some language NSFW). My biggest complaint about the show — as you’ll hear in the video — is that too many people in the bar area wouldn’t STFU.
I got my first peek at Frank’s Place on Saturday, the new downtown music venue that many people have high hopes for. I’ll have a second post on Frank’s Place coming soon, but for now, here’s a video of headliner Head Like A Kite on stage. In short: I was very impressed with the venue and the crowd was pretty good. I’m hopeful for Frank’s Place’s growth.
What did you do this weekend? Anybody see Carolina Chocolate Drops or David Arthur Brown? (Sad I missed those). Anybody try a cool new restaurant? Or visit a new shop? I heard there was a mustache party at Twee … if you were there, do tell, what was that all about? I’m a mustache party virgin.
