Mazza's Chautauqua Winery & free music

Last week, I was returning through the area from upstate New York and decided to stop at Mazza's new Chautauqua winery. I was looking to pick up some of their eau de vie, but it won't be ready for another couple of weeks. Instead my wife and I sampled a few wines and then had lunch from their cafe on their porch. The sun was shining, there was a light breeze and Blossom Dearie was playing on the speakers. "Where," I asked, "other than on my CDs have you heard Blossom Dearie?" We both shrugged and had another glass of riesling. A perfect summer moment.

Will Jeff and Akbar sue?
For the past 14 years, Jesse and Ricardo have gotten used to the countless stares, whispers and curious gawks as they peddle around Erie. Is it their strange matching coordinated outfits, or the fact that they are seriously using a tandem bike?
