Stopped by the American Diner for breakfast the other day and noticed a morning meal deal on the menu:
The Obama/NYS Special - two eggs and toast, $1.99 + tax $17.99.
It's got to be the best bar beer bargain in the village. You can buy a Pabst Blue Ribbon 24-oz. "Pounder" for an affordable $2 at the Limp Lizard, 201 First St. And, hey, the affable bar maids will even give you a frosted glass in which to pour the canned suds.
The Liverpool Lizard stages a full lineup of live music this weekend. The Lisa Lee Trio cranks out classic rock and R&B from 9 p.m. to midnight Thursday, May 19. Tuff Luck unpacks it horn cases at 10 p.m. Friday, May 20, and the Miss E Trio entertains at ten o'clock on Saturday, May 21. For Liverpool Lizard info, call 451-9774.
Four of the funniest guys I knew when I was growing up in the village are gone.
Through eight grades of elementary school at St. Joe's, jokesters Danny Parker, John Salanger and Danny Irving all cracked me up with their frantic antics and crazy quips.
In later years, I could always count on Mickey McMenamin to crack wise at the BeBop Shop on Old Liverpool Road. Everybody remembers Mickey's late-night TV commercials touting the BeBop Shop, "where music is still fun!"
