Rehearsal with Pizza? Yes, Please!

A few of us LiFTers met at Benton’s Landing in Little Falls to rehearse bits and pieces of Love’s Labour’s Lost.  Regular readers may remember that this is Little Falls Theatre Company and  that we are presenting the Shakespeare play as part of Little Falls Canal Celebration next weekend.

We got a few scenes done a few times when thunder started to rumble.  We moved inside to Mangia Macrina’s Wood-fired Pizza to run lines.

I’ve enjoyed their yumminess before.

By this time there were fewer of us, but we went over a few problem spots while enjoying pizza and drinks.  I did not have any pizza but sipped some Pinot Noir.  Others had Margherita pizza with basil.  I think it is delightful that Mangia’s now offers beer and wine.

Actors at work.

After rehearsing we sat and chatted for a while, making for a perfectly enjoyable evening.

A good prop for a warm night.

You can catch Love’s Labour’s Lost at Benton’s Landing in Little Falls Saturday and Sunday August 13 and 14 at 1 p.m.  You can enjoy Mangia Macrina’s Pizza at Canal Place in Little Falls Wednesday and Thursday from 12 to 7 p.m.,  Friday and Saturday from 12 to 8 p.m., Sunday 12 to 5 p.m.

Where Was I on Saturday?

So I missed Thursday, posted lame on Friday, then missed Saturday. Right down the line, I did better earlier in the week than later. Not that I did so hot earlier last week, now that I think about it. I guess I have set the bar for myself kind of low.

Anyways, here I am, lounged on my couch on Sunday morning, pecking in one letter at a time with the stylus, trying to make some post, any post, for reasons I feel unable to articulate.

Yesterday (Saturday), I went for a walk, since I still feel unable to run. Later, our friend Kim picked up Steve and me, and we went to the Pride festivities in Little Falls, NY. We enjoyed some musical performances from a few fabulously dressed Queens, and I purchased a rainbow fan.

Then we adjourned to Rock Valley Brewing, where we ordered drinks. After dithering with my phone for a few minutes, I just walked over to Mangia Macrina’s to get a wood-fired pizza. Previously I have ordered by text, but yesterday I was so indecisive, I thought in-person was a better way to go.

Returning to Herkimer, I remembered that there was a wine tasting at Valley Wine and Liquors, so we made a quick stop. I love wine tastings.

I realize that I could easily have made a Scattered Saturday Post when we got home. Instead, I watched a DVR’d episode of Svengoolie. In my defense, Vincent Price.

So here is my Saturday post, posted Sunday morning. Will I make my Sunday post on Sunday? A little suspense adds interest to my day.

Kitties, Pizza, Cheese: Is This Non-Sequitur Thursday?

I had a Mohawk Valley Adventure today! I have not had one of those on a weekday after work in a while. You see, I had a donation to bring to H.A.L.O. House in Little Falls, NY for their yard sale. And here’s a real pisser for you: I just went to their Facebook page and found out the sale has been postponed to the first weekend in June! Well, I still made the donation and I can still plug the sale. On with the post!

The trunk of my car.

I had books and VHS tapes to donate. Now that the sale has been postponed, perhaps I can find a few household items to add. I dropped what I had at H.A.L.O. House.

I like kitties, although I am allergic.

Since I was in Little Falls, I went to Canal Place to get some dinner from Mangia Macrina’s Wood-Fired Pizza. Yum!

It’s a decorative oven, I think.

The fellow behind the counter admired my shirt from Original Herkimer Cheese. I wonder if I can find a picture of it in my Media Library.

One of my favorite shirts!

As I left the pizzeria, I noticed some lovely flowers and just had to take a picture.

I want purple tulips and a magnolia tree!

I felt it was a productive afternoon. H.A.L.O.’s yard sale will be June 4 and 5 at 615 Albany Street, Little Falls, NY. Mangia Macrina’s Wood-Fired Pizza is at the Stone Mill, Canal Place, Little Falls, NY. Herkimer Original Cheese is located at 2745 Route 51, Ilion, NY. You can find all three of these on Facebook.

Phew! One adventure, three plugs, I call that OK for a weekday blog post. Happy Thursday, everyone!
