1,2,3,4 … 8 O’Clock rock

A good old-fashioned bit of initiative, that’s what this is. While the recession drops the Dow like a rock, Jim’s Diner on Lincoln Avenue is rolling back to better days with live rock ‘n roll from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Grab your guy or gal or broom and check it out this Saturday. It’ll be like the old days — a burger and a shake with two straws and the tables and chairs moved for the dance floor. It doesn’t say so on the sign, but it’d probably¬† be fun to go in retro clothes, too. The gig starts at 8 p.m. and goes until 11 p.m.¬† (2333 Lincoln Ave.)

There's a Jimboree planned at Jim's Diner Saturday night (June 20).
