THUR 9/17: Food, Film, F-Word, and More

Keeping it brief for a better tomorrow (and following days).

Thought of the day:
With 3 fires on the T last night, I wonder how long we can still blame Dan Grabauskas for MBTA problems...


THUR 9/17

Noon to 1:30pm
Annual Taste of the Fort Point Channel
at Children's Wharf Park, 300 Congress St, Boston (Fort Point/near Boston Children's Museum)

If you work or live around Fort Point, leave your lunch in the fridge. The neighborhood's restaurants are providing lunch today after this event was postponed in June. There are quite a few tasty places near Fort Point too; the restaurants listed on the right side of the page are probably participating...

THUR 9/17

Jesse Sheidlower, "The F-Word": Discussion
at Harvard Book Store, 1256 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

If you can't handle f---ing profanity, then you should stay the f--- out of the book store. Believe it or not, new f---ing examples of modification of one of my favorite f---ing words.

Seriously, it's a book about the word "fuck" compiled by an OED editor.

THUR 9/17

Shelley Neill Quartet
at The Lily Pad, 1353 Cambridge St, Cambridge (Inman Sq)

It's bluesy jazz vocals with a piano trio (Laszlo Gardony - piano, Yoron Israel - drums, Ron Mahdi - bass).

THUR 9/17

"Emerson College Comedy"
at Tommy's Comedy Lounge, Charles Playhouse, 74 Warrenton St, Boston (theatre District)
$8 / 21+

Feat: Blake Wexler, Adam J Goldberg, Sam Crimmins, Max Fox, Reggie Williams, Dan Perrault, Shawn Marek, Jordan Clifford, Keele Howard-Stone

Just because Jay Leno is a graduate doesn't mean that there are no funny students at Emerson... Last semester, four of tonight's performers were considered the second funniest college team in the country.

THUR 9/17

"An Evening with Andrew Bujalski"
at Room B-05, College of Communication, 640 Comm Ave, Boston (BU campus)

On the eve of his new film opening, local filmmaker and former BU film professor Andrew Bujalski speaks about his "mumblecore" movies and will screen his first feature, "Funny Ha Ha". You'll either love the minimalist style or wonder why anyone likes it.

Yes, this is in a basement room.

THUR 9/17

The Cave Singers (Midnight), Lightning Dust (11pm), Mean Creek (10pm), Old Abram Brown (9:05pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / 18+

Elaborate yet rootsy indie-rock from Pacific Northwest join some of the peers from New England for a full night of musical goodness.
