One "snow day" at Crompton Park . . .

Book Signing, Chapter Two: Photographer deluxe and El Brendel maven nonpareil Louie Despres will sign copies of "Five Months," his photo-chronicle of Worcester night life, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. March 6 at the good Dr. Gonzo's Uncommon Condiment World Headquarters, 122 Main St. Both books are recommended no little.
Chapter Last, Not Least: A Jean Shepherd brass figlagee with bronze oak leaf palm to Evan Scola, Karl Cole, Wyatt Wade and the Davis Art Gallery staff for a most hospitable opening reception at the "Meanwhile..." show last week at the Printers' Building, 44 Portland St. Laurel and I made some new friends, enjoyed a host of old ones and appreciated the opportunity of viewing original art by top-shelf local talent up close. The show runs till late May but go AS&AP!
