Top Ten Rochester GCI Hot Spots

With the Stalker show coming up this weekend, I was inspired to blog.

Ever think to yourselves "Gosh, I wonder what those crrrraaaazzzzyyy improv kids do in their off-time."?
I used to when I was a sweet young thing sitting in the next stage house, day dreaming about the cast....ooh, creepy? a little.
I used to think, "I bet they just live in the moment, plans are made out of thin air and they're magical, off the cuff, out of the ordinary! They're IMPROVISERS for God's sake!!!"

While it's true our plans are made last minute(more from faulty planning than spontaneity), we have a few favs. I've narrowed down our Top Ten Rochester Hot Spots in no particular order. These locals are clutch to downtown livin'.

Here's it goes:

1) Lux Lounge (Best <3)

2) South Wedge Diner (weekend Breakfast)

3) Acme (pizza and a brew)

4) Marks Texas Hots (late night)

5) The Little (shows off our sensitive/ intellectual side)

6) James Brown's Place (we really like Breakfast. I get the Dixie Plate)

7) Tap and Mallet (mouth watering food and drink)

8) 7-11 Meigs and Monroe (essential for energy drinks and snacks)

9) Public Market (our pseudo-bohemian side)

10) Jeremiah's (wings and beer)

Another craft night at Lux. Left, the handsome caricature Paul. Right, Me.

Paparazzi, we understand. It's a lifestyle we've chosen.


  1. Hey GCI, this top ten list is awesome. I will have to check out your recommendations next time I come through Rochester. You can post this to our site and link back to your site. We are trying to create a directory for top ten lists where people can find your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.

  2. I used to stop off at the Meiggs and Monroe 7-11 before every show to pick up a Red Bull. Then I'd show up to the show 1/2 an hour late. Good times.

    Great list. I miss Lux.
