Pizza Extravaganza at J&J Winery – Don’t Miss This One!


On January 19th, Wayne County will have the ability to try every kind of pizza that J&J Winery makes.

Let me be clear:  For one price, you get to gorge yourself on the best wood-oven pizza you’ve ever tasted.  Not just one style, but all of them.

Now, if you’ve been to J&J and ordered one of their pizzas, and you’re like me, just one of them is enough to make you mad.  Eating the last slice is akin to the kind of sorrow felt when losing a best friend.  Or at least, stepping on a lego really hard in the middle of the night.

Trust me, you don’t want to go there!

On January 19th, there will be no arbitrary restrictions on the kind of pizza you devour.  And you’ll hear no excuses like “We can’t MAKE a 28 inch pizza in our oven, Jack!”  Or “Please stop eating the PICTURES of pizza on the menu, Jack!”

(Ok, maybe one of those only really applies to me, but you get the point.)

Extravaganzas are a bit more than just a “quaint evening out.”  You don’t use 5 syllable words to describe such a heavenly event accompanied by great local wines and/or Big Dawg beer …and a freakin’ singing fireman!

This is serious, Wayne County!  Get your calendar out and circle January 19th (6:30 pm-10:00 pm).  Really, just sharpie out the whole day and draw stars and Unicorns by the date.  This is an event you won’t want to miss!

How Much?  

It will be $15.95 (includes tax) for pizza extravaganza. All you can eat and salad and bread stix bar.

Questions?  Contact J&J here.

Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Civic Hall Performing Arts Center

“Show up, do a great job and give the people more than their money’s worth”
— Max Weinberg

The Earlham Artist and Lecture Series is excited to present The Jazz and Percussion Festival featuring Max Weinberg and the Earlham Jazz Ensemble and Rhythm Project on Saturday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the Civic Hall Performing Arts Center.

Max Weinberg, the man the New York Times called “the rhythmic backbone of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band” is one of the most visible drummers of the rock era, having played thousands of concerts in arenas and stadiums all over the world. He continued to entertain audiences for 17 years both as a featured performer in comedy sketches and as the leader of what Tom Shales called “…the best band on TV,” the Max Weinberg Seven on NBC’s Late Night and The Tonight Show.

Weinberg has performed in the East Room of The White House with the United States Navy Big Band and at two Presidential Inaugural Galas.

Since 1974 the drummer for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band was a featured performer on the 1995 and 2003 Grammy Awards, the 1995 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame dedication in Cleveland, Ohio, the 2009 Super Bowl and 2009’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Special on HBO, filmed at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Cited by Playboy magazine’s Pop and Jazz Music Poll and the Rolling Stone Critics Poll as “Best drummer,” Weinberg has performed with some of contemporary music’s biggest names, including, Sting, Tony Bennett, Sheryl Crow, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Barbra Streisand, BB King, The Who, George Harrison, and Eric Clapton to name a few. He has the unique distinction of having played on both the #1 Born in the USA, and #2 Meatloaf’s, Bat out Of Hell albums in rock history.

This spring of 2012, Weinberg embarked on yet another world tour with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band.

Performing on stage for this momentous concert are the Earlham Jazz Ensemble and Rhythm Project.
