The Hot Club





575 South Water Street, Prov.

Last chance to remind everyone that Peter, Mike, Jesse and the rest of the ‘Professors’ band will play the Hot Club this Wednesday (April 18) from 6-9. They’ll school ya.

The Hot Club as Hotel California is never more evident than when the good weather arrives. Recently we spotted Cementhead, who stopped by on a Sunday afternoon. We refrained from pointing out to Cementhead that he is still banned from the Hot Club.

On a mellower note, Meghan, who used to work at the HC, stopped by with hubby Teague. Meghan said that they had just become the parents of a new baby girl – Alice. Congratulations to them on their newborn bundle of joy.

Also paying a visit to the HC was the Caustic Cutie and 5 Angels, who actually were seen in quite close proximity last Friday.

We were discussing the Farrelly Brothers new movie about the Three Stooges. I made the point that while men love Moe, Larry and Curly (I was a Shemp fan), women don’t care much for the Stooges. I no sooner said this than a woman, who was talking to Dave, the HC Grillman, turned to me and suggested that I think before I make assumptions like that. The chastising woman said her name was Aunnah. A young Stooges’ fan.

I mentioned to Frequent Flyer and Buffalo Steve that one of the last things you ever do is congratulate a woman on being pregnant unless you are absolutely, positively sure that she is pregnant. Claudia admitted it happened once to her. Buffalo Steve said he made the mistake in another bar some time back and thought he’d never get another drink in the place because he said it to the bartender. Steve said that when he offered the bartender congratulations, she said. “What the f*** for?”

Bill Fisher and Foot Joy were debating Ozzie Guillen saying he loved Castro. Bill said it was about logic and emotion. ‘Fish’ said that he adopted the principle that Ozzie had the right to express his views on Fidel. Foot Joy said the smart thing would have been for Ozzie not to have said it. Someone shouted out that Ozzie’s views could get him fired.

Last week I mentioned to anyone who would listen that my memory of going to Fenway Park was among those published in the Pro Jo’s special 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park issue. One person who did not need to be told was Hooks, who was the only one who told me about seeing it. Ah the elusiveness of fame and fortune.

Frequent Flyer’s close friend Joanne said that Fleet Feet Pete looked like Harry Potter. She also weighed in on the poster for The Professors gig at the Hot Club. Joanne looked at the photo of the band and said, “It’s a good picture for middle-aged men.”
