Gig tomorrow at Wickham Farms!

I am in the process of writing my Top Chef recap but CRB has a gig tomorrow at Wickham Farms! Weather cooperating (cross your fingers!) we'll be playing on the porch on the right side of the picture.

I need to bone up on a few songs, particularly some new ones, including a Miley Cyrus tune we're doing just for the kids.

And while I'm on the subject of Wickham Farms, I have to do a quick plug for them. It's a great spot for families and anyone looking for some good chow.

In the real barn, with its great pine scent, there are ice cream choices galore -- 32 flavors of scooped ice cream as well as soft custard -- plus some really good baked goods, like homemade cookies.

In terms of "real" food, they have a limited menu with items that are well done, including a homemade, all white meat chicken salad that I think is the best in Rochester. Another favorite is the Farmhand sandwich -- three cheeses and bacon, grilled to gooey goodness on a panini press.

Anyway, kids can't get enough of the place -- there's miniature golf, playground equipment, and more.

So go for the gig, or go another day!

Back to practicing!

We love Wickham farms and make sure to stop by everytime we visit family in Fairport. We'll be back this year again in September. I wish I could hear your band then! Maybe I'll get to see you there again. Hope so! Erin

Good luck at the gig!
I wish I could stop by for some ice cream at Wickham Farms. I love chocolate chip cookie dough.

Looks like a great place. Have fun on your gig!

Have fun -- Music + spring weather + ice cream ... a equation for a perfect day. Looks like you have more flowers than we do, although it is warming up around here! I had my first fried pickle yesterday -- no joke, my friend ordered for the table. It was really good. Dipping sauces included a lime cilantro, an ailoi (sp?), and a roasted pepper and tomato. Maybe it's something to consider for the new fryer at Wickham farms?

Music + Spring weather + ice cream = a perfect day, in my opinion! Wish I could be there to join the fun. I had my first fried pickle yesterday -- my friend ordered for the table, much to my surprise. Dipping sauces included a lime cilantro, an ailoi (sp?), and a roasted red pepper. Something to consider for the new Wickham Farms frier??

Hi all,

Thanks for the good wishes! The rain held off for us ... we had a few sprinkles just as we were ending. People had a good time, other than a couple of people who complained that we were too loud. There's always something, isn't there?

Karin, I'm not sure I've ever had a fried pickle. Nor have I had a fried Twinkie or a fried Snickers bar. Given the choice I think I'd do the Snickers bar. But as far as I'm concerned I'd like to use the fryer as little as possible.
