The fourth annual Park Point Summer Concert Series kicks off this Friday night and if you haven’t been before, you’re going to want to check out a show (or two… or three… or four!) this year!
Not only is Park Point the best place in town to watch some of our area’s greatest bands (many concert-goers bring blankets and lawn chairs and relax in our huge, grassy courtyard) but it’s also a great place to enjoy delicious food from one of our amazing locally owned restaurants – whether it be TC Riley’s, Lovin’ Cup, Aladdins (now open!) or Paradiso Pizza. We’re also going to have delicious ice cream from Maggie Moos this year! And with Friday’s predicted forecast of sun and 81, you can also enjoy an ice cold beer (if you choose!).
Again, the series kicks off Friday night at 6 with our first-ever country concert featuring two incredible local bands – Goodness and Paul Cummings. And we couldn’t be more excited about our headliner: nationally known country artist Sean Patrick McGraw (with a name like that, you know he’s going to be good!). Check out some of his work at www.seanpatrickmcgraw.com (you have time to listen to his songs and learn the lyrics so you can sing along!).
Mark your calendars for our other shows too:
July 27th – The Sound Remains The Same with Springer and Catch 22
August 17th – 50/50 with Brass Taxi and Polluted Moon
September 14th – The Skycoasters with Teagan and The Tweeds (opening act to be named!)
Park Point is a place where you can bring your whole family to enjoy live music –for FREE. Yup, all of our concerts are free and open to the public. So wrestle up your cowboy hat and boots, and we’ll see you at Park Point Friday night! Yee haw!
With an eclectic array of restaurants and retailers, Park Point welcomed its newest “resident,” Aladdin’s restaurant this week. The restaurant has taken over 3,284 square feet of space near Barnes & Noble. The menu features Mediterranean cuisine without any type of preservatives in their food preparation - only fresh vegetables, meat, and sea salt.
Joining three other Rochester area locations in Pittsford, Rochester and Ithaca, Aladdin’s at Park Point’s menu is similar serving everything from kabobs and spanakopita to falafel and salads.
Recently, I stopped in for lunch and as expected, the food was delicious. I, of course, had to take a picture to share – I highly recommend the falafel pita pocket! The recently remodeled space features large doors that open to the outdoor patio space, perfect for dining al fresco.
Stop by for lunch or dinner – enjoy!
Team Park Point at Chase Corporate Challenge
Park Point at RIT may be known for our restaurants and retail space, fantastic concert series, and of course, our beautiful off-campus living, but giving back to our community is incredibly important to us too.
Last night, members of the Park Point office staff took part in the 2012 Chase Corporate Challenge. Nearly 10,000 runners from 399 companies took part in the 5k race held on RIT’s campus. Proceeds from the event benefit the Greater Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross.
