Short Vine Springs Back to Life

On a sunny day last week I strolled over to Vine Street in Corryville and snapped some photos and talked to some business owners, all of whom were happy to see construction wrapping up, revealing an attractive streetscape and a neighborhood that has a nice mix of spiffy new storefronts and long-established businesses. Finally you […]

So what […]

Ten Favorite Bogart’s Concerts: The Honorable Mentions

A month ago (or was it longer?) I promised a list of my ten favorite Bogart’s shows. A long processions of phone calls from people who wanted me to help promote upcoming events—which I’m always happy to do—delayed the process, but now I’m finally ready to share my top ten. Or almost, anyway. Before I […]

My Favorite Bogart’s Concerts

How do you know you’re a music nerd? One hint is that you have a vast collection of memorabilia devoted to concerts you attended over the years. That could include posters, handbills, ads and reviews from the paper, tickets…I’ve got all those things and more. Today I scanned all the Bogart’s tickets that I’ve kept […]

Bogart’s, Daniels Pub, Nelson Slater, Short Vine, Wish You Were Here, & Gaslight Night at Clifton Performance Theatre

The theme of this particular blog entry is goings on around Short Vine, and I encourage any readers brave enough to follow what might like seem a circuitous verbal trail to remember that. My adventures began the night I handed out umpteen beer cozies at a table for Gaslight Property at Bogart’s while Wish You […]

What’s In Store for Bogart’s

In a recent blog entry the general manager of Bogart’s, Karen Foley, told me some of the changes she made shortly after taking that role, and later in that same interview I asked her what she had in store in the future. It turns out a lot is changing soon. “In the next couple weeks […]

Seeing Santigold Live at Bogart’s

Last night was very nostalgic for me and my friends. Several of us had arranged to meet at Bogart’s for the Santigold concert, but no one had nailed what time they planned to arrive, so when I showed up a few minutes before Santigold was supposed to take the stage (I had missed the opening […]

Favorite Concert Ever, Part 1

The response to the contest where people were supposed to write about their best concert ever was so overwhelming that I’ll have to break it down into separate blog entries.

What’s New at Bogart’s

I had a great walk today. The weather was beautiful (sunny, blue, warm), and when I walked through Burnet Woods folks were out fishing in force. Passing a young black man, I decided to make it clear just how unimpressed I was with his production thus far.
