weekend update 3/15/11

D flowers,

Spring is everywhere. Spring is in the air and there's a spring underground leading to a fountain (that, as the song goes, was not made by the and of man.) There's even a spring in our step.

On to the weekend. First, Geeks Who Drink Trivia is every Thursday night at 6:30pm. It's a great game, but even if you are not a trivia fan you will have fun. We defy you not to laugh out loud at least once during Thursday night trivia. After trivia, tonight, Thursday March 15, we have a band called Terra Legato (progressive pop rock, free.)

Friday night we have dance cover band PJ Hahn (dance/ blues) at 6pm. This one is a benefit to help pay for the medical expenses of the band's teenage son, Brian Bucenek who was in a near fatal car accident. $5-$10 suggested donation. After this we have a benefit for To Write Love On Her Arms, an organization for women battling addiction, with Blind Brilliance (pop/punk) and Best 303 Sounds. $5.

Saturday at 2pm we have BackBeat jazz playing (free). At 7:30pm we have The Dustin Pittsley Band (epic Southern Rock, from OK) w/ Rev Hooch. This show is sponsored by Jagermeister so that should indicate a fun night of rock and roll. Not to mention it is St. Patrick's Day! $5

Next Tuesday, on the Spring equinox itself, we have some fine jazz, Kelly Zinge's Trouble, at 8pm. $5.

That's our weekend and we shall wear it well,

D forest

Extra Credit: Here's an ecstatic Spring forward poem by miss Emily Dickinson.

I taste a liquor never brewed,
From tankards scooped in pearl;
Not all the vats upon the Rhine
Yield such an alcohol!

Inebriate of air am I,
And debauchee of dew,
Reeling, through endless summer days,
From inns of molten blue.

When landlords turn the drunken bee
Out of the foxglove's door,
When butterflies renounce their drams,
I shall but drink the more!
Till seraphs swing their snowy hats,
And saints to windows run,
To see the little tippler
Leaning against the sun!
