Capturing the Maccabis' Miracle on Hardwood

Among the 26 feature films at this year's JCC Ames Amzalak Rochester International Jewish Film Festival, which continues through July 18, is a special preview of the inspirational sports documentary, "On the Map." The film, which will be screening for Rochester audiences ahead of its official U.S. premiere, chronicles the gripping story of the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team's unprecedented success in the 1977 European Championship Tournament.

Brandie Posey may be salty, but she's got heart

Comedian Brandie Posey calls herself "20 percent white trash," which, she adds, is the perfect percent to be.

The City Seen: June 18

Notes from the weekend
City last weekend stopped in to see Nate Hodge and Cordell Cordaro's collaborative exhibit of artwork that currently fills the 26th floor of The Metropolitan at One South Clinton Avenue. Formerly called Lincoln First Tower, and then later Chase Tower, the 1974 building is an iconic part of Rochester's skyline and is known for its rows of vertical white "fin" stripes and a base that curves outward as it meets the ground.
