United Way Day of Caring and Grow Youngstown were at the Fairgreen Neighborhood Garden planting and making beds for organic produce. Treezers from Treez Please were on hand to help as well. After working in the garden I then had wonderful afternoon listening to Phil Brady read poetry at Barnes and Noble and then headed out for partying in downtown. Cedars was rocking Saturday night as the Sacksville Rhythm and Blues Band and The Eight Balls performed. It was a warm evening, the patio is open again and we danced until we dropped. So naturally, here on this cold and grey Monday morning, I'm already dreaming of next weekend. Next Friday, May 2, promises to be a blast! First dinner at the newly remodeled Cafe Cimmento located at 120 E. Boardman, Youngstown downtown. The food and wine are superb. After dinner I'm going to see the Full Monty at the Oakland Center for the Arts. The play is a musical adaptation of the Academy Award winning film of the same name. This American version takes place in Buffalo, NY. the recession has hit and due to the closing of local steel mills, a group of blue collar workers find themselves out of work and unable to support their families. the unlikely group of friends join together with a money making scheme that just may save (and expose) their rear ends. The book is by Terrence McNally, Score by David Yazbeck. After the show, I'm putting on my dancing shoes again and I'm off to Cedars to hear Matt Palka, singer/songwriter extraordinaire. Show is $5.00 and starts at 11:00 Cedars Time. Hope to see you there.
