Obama’s campaign contributors show his true colors

— So there’s your choice when you go to the polls on Nov. 6. Either vote for the fat cat Republican or vote for the false-face Democrat. Either way, big banks and corporations win again.

Chicago Hot Six

They may be named the Chicago Hot Six, but the band’s style is sheer New Orleans.

“We aim for a very old New Orleans sound,” says bandleader/trombonist Roy Rubinstein. “That’s the music I most enjoy playing and listening to and it’s really the most authentic jazz.”

The Chicago Hot Six will perform from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, at Pensabene’s Casa Grande, 135 State Fair Blvd., in Syracuse. The concert is hosted by the Jazz Appreciation Society of Syracuse, said JASS President Bobby Morris, who lives in Liverpool.

Admission costs $10 for JASS members or $12 for non-members. For information, call Bobby at 652-0547.

Om Boys goes bye-bye

Om Boys Juice and Smoothie Café has abandoned its Liverpool location at 137 First St., in favor of Syracuse’s trendy Armory Square.

Operated by Todd and Michelle Brundage, Om Boys brought its wheat grass shots and Buddha bowls to First Street in October 2011. In August of this year, however, the Brundages moved the operation to 214 Walton St. down city. After a month of relative success there, they decided to close the Liverpool shop.

Just what we need — another darkened storefront.

Craft beers at Fastrac!

The Fastrac gas station and convenience store on Route 57 recently underwent interior renovations. The new look is wide open and attractive but, even better, the shop now offers tasty craft beers on draught sold in glass growlers.

The colorfully named brands on tap last weekend were Woodchuck Fall Cider, Arrogant Bastard Ale, Dogfish Head 60-minute IPA, Autumn Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, Founders’ Dirty Bastard Ale and Sam Adams Octoberfest.


Fastrac is located just north of the Thruway at 7189 Oswego Road; 457-0199.
