American Repertory Theater of WNY

Another group of renters, a different time, same bullshit. People who think parking rules are not for them and its okay to park on a lawn in the city. If everyone parked on the lawn in the city, we wouldn't have lawns.

When (e:Joe) nicely exclaimed through the window, to one of the parkers that its illegal to park on the lawn, he apparently upset them. Matthew LaChiusa, of the American Repertory Theater of WNY, came out to confront me and said, "he is sick of this and isn't going to take it anymore." and that the Church of the Ascension gives them permission to park on the lawn. I seriously doubt this after the intense drama we had in the past over lawn parking. (e:paul,52485) (e:paul,54105) (e:paul,53913)

First, I found this totally weird because I have almost never talked with Matthew LaChiusa other than the first day they started and secondly because I have graciously let them use my skirt to get into Church's illegal driveway for a very long time. I really thought this was all behind us.

I was kind of surprised he was not just saying, "oh sorry, we will move the cars." So I said, "who the fuck cares what the Church says, its illegal, you can't do it and you are taking a nice lawn and turning into a disgusting muddy parking lot. Do people park on your lawn, or your neighbors lawn?"

If the Church is really okay with it, why not just park on the big lawn on the North St side.

He told me I shouldn't use such foul language. At this point I decided the best solution was to turn on the power washer, but sadly it was out of gas ;(

Then they added a second car to the lawn. The third for the evening. Then I decided to call parking enforcement, you know the city loves parking money ( its $50 a ticket afterall) and I gave them a chance to move so I don't even feel bad.

Over time the renters at the church have done such a job on the driveway, grass, sidewalk, walkway etc. Its sad because it seems like the Church people really do a good job keeping up their property otherwise. So many of the browstone sidewalks are cracked from vehicles driving on them.

So here's the deal Matthew LaChiusa. In the end, I am going to win. You can either make sure your attendees and staff park nicely in the driveway like civilized people or I am going to drive them out like last group and make sure that no one ever wants to come here to see your plays again. You can choose.

Red Hat Says Client-Server Era Is Over


The age of client-server computing is giving way to cloud and mobile and Red Hat wants to lead the way as enterprise computing makes this key transition from one computing era to another. "Right now, we're in the midst of a major shift from client-server to cloud-mobile. It's a once-every-twenty-years kind of change," Whitehurst wrote in the blog post.



..because a cloud isn't a server and a mobile device isn't a client, right.

Clinton Bailey Market

The food is so plentiful and cheap at harvest time. Its unbelievable what you can get there for the price of one single cauliflower at the coop.

I wish I could have taken (e:tinypliny) with me.

(E:terry) also got what looks like amazing roma tomatoes for canning.

Kaydara for Dinner


After we went to Buffalo Proper for drinks last night with (e:yestthatcasey) we headed on over to Kaydara to meet (e:Robert) and Mickey for dinner. The owner was having a meltdown because "all these assholes from curtain up decided to to show up without reservations"

At that point in the evening (9PM) and her point in the timeline of that business you think she would be thrilled to just have people show up. Besides who says that to their customers, especially when we were the only people in the restaurant.

Then (e:terry) ordered Vietnamese coffee which I know we had their before and she said they don't have it. Then five minutes later I hear the same woman tell (e:Robert) they do have Vietnamese coffee but they don't make it for guests because its a pain. WTF lady.

Then I ordered the bussel sprouts and she went on this whole tirade about what a pain it is to core then for the dish.

No one wants to hear what trouble they are causing for you while they are paying you to serve them food. You can bitch all you want about it behind their back but not to their face. Either serve people and don't bitch about it to their face or don't serve people and have your staff take care of it.

I wish the best waitress I ever had at Curly's week could teach a class for her.

I really like their food at the same time I really can't stand dealing with her edgy, manic attitude every time we eat there. Most likely, I will continue to not eat there often and with the amount we eat out and the fact that her restuarant is within walking distance of work and home - she will lose out.

If only the food wasn't so tasty I wouldn't go back. The creme brulé is the best I ever had.

Curtain Up


We were downtown for curtain up last night to participate on Brian's 30 hour VJ session. I was so tired by the end I fell asleep on the floor. Thank god I brought stinky the bear because he made a great pillow.

When I saw the discarded chicken wing below, I thought you know you are in Buffalo when you find chicken wings on the ground.
