This morning, while strolling down Main Street on my way to the studio, I was accosted by a young man who kept calling me "wifey" and wanted me to hang out with him on the street corner all afternoon. Normally I would jump at the offer to make a new friend, but I had things to do this morning, so I regretfully declined.
Two thoughts ran through my head as I walked away from my new BFF: What a nice guy; it's really nice of him to follow me to my building to make sure I got there safe and Were men half as polite on Main Street in 1911?
I don't know the answer to the latter thought, but I do know that the women back then were not lucky enough to be called "wifey" by a total stranger. What I can tell you, though, are five super-cool places on Main Street that you should visit at least once.
Man, does it take a LOT of work to take a day off! Chuck, our Jack's Day Off winner, has spent the last couple of days with the Jack FM crew in our dumpy little studio, preparing for Friday's vacation/takeover. Sure, he's been doing a lot of the heavy lifting -- voice work, programming, directing the rest of us around -- but we don't trust him enough to just give him the keys and leave, so we've still got to keep an eye on him!
A round of golf at a nice course can get pricey fast. Fortunately, you can get a good deal and not break the bank if you're willing to play hookey or skip out of work early -- and let's be honest, who doesn't want to do that in the summer? Here are five of the area's best affordable (i.e., $35 for a round, with a cart, after 2 p.m. on weekdays) courses.
On Friday, Nik Wallenda will give Niagara Falls a little popularity when he tight rope walks across the Falls. Luckily for us, ABC made what their calling the "Walk of the Century," a 3-hour long time slot to ensure that the only way we'll be able to get through the whole program is to get so drunk from the Nik Wallenda Drinking Game, his walk will look like that one time we were forced to walk the line outside the local bar. We only hope that the rest of world will be so drunk they won't remember if this event will go down as one of our top live television flops.
If you're going to spend the summer days golfing, you may as well head to a course that's worth your time. In my opinion, each of these six courses is beautifully landscaped and offers very well maintained fairways and greens that set them a step or two above many of the area's other public golf courses.
In case you live under a rock, the ginormous white building with the pillars on Elmwood Avenue is the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. It's also the place you take the cute girl from reception on a Friday night because you want to seem mature -- and it's free. Reeeeal mature, buddy.
Here are a few cool facts about the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
If you're like Jack, there's no way you're joining the projected 120,000 spectators at Niagara Falls on Friday to watch Nik Wallenda walk across the Niagara River. Wallenda is walking approximately 173 feet over gorge- yawwwnnnn. We'd rather sit at home with a case of beer and watch this disaster waiting to happen on TV with the rest of the world and we've created a drinking game that will get you good and drunk long before Wallenda makes it to the other side.
