Things to do in Dayton when you aren’t dead

There are basketball fans who like to watch a great team play a great game. There are other fans, who go to  a game to be seen and socialize. If you are the former- the best hoops to be seen in Dayton is the Lady Flyers. Coached by my friend Jim Jabir, the Lady Flyers […]

Sometimes life has a strange way of colliding. I’ve wanted to see a Zoot Theatre Company production for a long time. A local troupe, run by a looming Englishman with a poetic kindness in his voice, they use puppets to tell the story, with the actors swathed in black from head to toe- including covering […]

For the record- I play hockey, where goals are few and far between, and teamwork is everything. But, when it comes to hoops, I much prefer to watch women’s ball than mens, where they actually pass, run plays and move the ball. Tonight you can sit in the same seats that others pay thousands to […]

You can also hear 8, infinitely more interesting people the same night. And for the first time- this is FREE. […]

I don’t normally interview entertainers on this site. The closest I come to comedy is when I quote the editorial board of the Dayton Daily News- and they really aren’t funny. So when a publicist asks if I’d like to interview comedian Paul Mecurio- I first have to look him up- because I’m usually too […]
