46: An Escape Room, a Burger, Some Whiskey, No Football

  1. My birthday isn't until tomorrow, but I'm celebrating it today, as "Super Bowl Sunday" is still easier to get people out on than Monday is. Low-key affair this year: Lea, Jenna, Ben and I paid a visit to Escape Games Worcester, where we managed to escape from the "Conspiracy Room" with three minutes to spare, and then we met up with a few more friends at Oak Barrel Tavern for a yummy burger. All that, and home by 5 p.m. to steer clear of Super Bowl festivities. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just not my game. Instead, I prefered heading home and having a glass of whiskey with neighbor Gary. All told, not a bad way to celebrate turning 46.
  2. I have a lot of projects on my plate, most of which I'm not in a position to talk about yet, except to say that I'm pushing in a lot of new directions this year, and working to develop some new technical skills. I'm hoping for 2018 to be a bit of a transformative year, but then, I always hope for something like that. And y'know, it usually is. Sometimes I don't even realize how much I've changed until much later.
  3. So there are cool projects, including a Mystery Cabaret, on the horizon, but I can mention that I have a poetry reading next week:
  4. Victor D. Infante reads for Listen!
    7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11
    Nick's Bar and Restaurant
    124 Millbury St.
    Worcester, MA, 01601
  5. Looking forward to reading a few new poems, along with some old ones in this mix.
  6. Anyway, here's hoping 46 proves as exciting a year as I'm hoping, and that I'm as clever as I think I am and can pull off a whole lot of stunts. Beats being bored ...
