Jerry Seinfeld Coming to Santa Rosa

Jerry Seinfeld coming to Santa Rosa? This big city, New York guy, coming to Podunk, little, 157,000-population Santa Rosa? Come on! That’s like Derek Jeter playing for the Kansas City Royals! (Except that Seinfeld actually IS coming to Santa Rosa—at least for one night.)

Seinfeld will be performing two stand-up shows at the Wells Fargo Center on May 16, one at 7pm and one at 10pm. The newly-renovated theater has been stepping up its game lately, with a pack house cheering on Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center earlier this month and John Legend taking the stage on April 1. Tickets for Seinfeld’s performance will be available April 4 starting at noon.

Lately, Seinfeld’s been working on a web series called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. It’s basically a conversation between the legendary New York comedian and other funny, interesting people, like Tina Fey, Jay Leno, Louis C.K., and, most recently, Howard Stern. The show’s in it’s third season now, and I highly suggest watching every episode.

Tails Wag Over Fido Alfresco Bill

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2014 at 4:15 PM

We love dogs here at the North Bay Bohemian, and our pack of politically engaged, editorial-office mutts is voting Yea on a new pup-friendly proposal from state lawmaker Mariko Yamada. The 4th District assemblymember has offered AB-1965 to her Sacramento colleagues, a bill that would let towns and localities decide whether Fido the foodie is welcome in outdoor-dining areas. California public health laws now restrict beagles in bistros, dalmations in diners, terriers in tea shops, and, of course, pit bulls in brew pubs. But county officials in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara recently enacted new laws that let dogs dine alfresco, and Yamada's bill would eliminate the legal limbo those cities created by lifting the state's blanket restriction on dogs-in-restaurants. "While the outdoor areas of some restaurants are well-suited for accommodating dog owners, state law still prohibits the presence of most animals in food facilities," writes Yamada in an info-sheet on AB-1965, "and makes no distinction based on their location in those facilities." Yamada says her bill would "let public health inspectors focus on more dangerous public health risks" than, say, a slobbering shih tzu snarfing your wood-fired pizza on the Cafe Reyes patio. The editorial hounds at the Bohemian also point out that the Yamada bill could ease demand for doggie bags - very eco-friendly. They do caution, however, against ordering chocolate-covered grapes for dessert.
