The Michigan Daily -Weekend a

memorable opera this season. The
two University productions were
overdone: Albert Herring had too
much staging, and Barber of Seville
tried to update the story into Italian
'50s television. Not for us.
Best Classical Performance:
Chicago Symphony Orchestra
This was the most recent University
Musical Society offering, but Baren-
boim's crowd-pleasin' all-Strauss
program showed he actually can
conduct. One of the coolest things
we've seen in a long time was the
third encore of "Chicago." Glad to
see a sense of humor still exists. For
those with a short memory: Murray
Perahia and Mariss Jansons' Oslo
Philharmonic were at their finest as
well.
Best Halloween Event: The
University Symphony Orchestra
From the beginning to the very end,
the Annual Halloween Concert was
hilarious. With the decapitated
harpists, the string section dancing to
"Thriller," and the Rocky Horror

section, the concert promised to be
creative and scary. Musical selec-
tions ranged from the Symphonie
Fantastique to the Night on Bald
Mountain. Not enough room to do
more than just mention the spider
from the ceiling, the audience in
costumes, and the fabulous percus-
sion ensemble. Ooh, scary!
Best Local Drama: Comedy
Company
You're joking, right? Well, you
readers elected it. Comedy Company
has made some format changes over
the years, but not enough to warrant
calling it drama. Marat/Sade is more
like it - the University Players ver-
sion with twisted sexual humor -
showing how talented theater stu-
dents can act out dementia. More
Fun Than Bowling, produced by the
Purple Rose Theatre in Chelsea, fea-
tured two University students in a
night full of dramatic human rela-
tionships, and also has our vote for
the best drama.
Best Local Comedy: Highly
Improvable

This fab five started out in the back
of Jason's Sandwich shop ("Just like
dinner theater!" we exclaimed) and
climbed the ladder to comedic ge-
nius. Deb, Tom, Matt, Dave and
Mike are the happy gang who
bonded over carafes and other audi-
ence-inspired comedy. Something
that hasn't been seen in these parts
for some time now, this improv
troupe offers a different sort of com-
edy than that seen on stages.
Best Warm Furry Moment: Men's
Glee Club Spring Concert
Sesame Street's Bob McGrath, who
most of us feel as if we've known all
of our lives, came out for the second
half of a terrific concert and, begin-
ning in Kermit the Frog's voice,
sang "The Rainbow Connection,"
dedicated to the late Jim Henson. It
was also nostalgic to hear the gradu-
ating senior Clubbers singing "I'll
Ne'er Forget My College Days," as
well as other Michigan favorites
with the 1967 "Around the World
Tour" Men's Glee Club. Hail. a

Whether the dorm cafeteria gets
you down, or you're grabbing a bite
to eat between classes, Ann Arbor
has more than enough food. Here's
a list of your votes for the best.
Cappuccino: Espresso Royale
CaffM
Since opening its doors, Espresso
Royale has mastered the art of the
beatnik coffee house, with delicious
drinks. Caffd Fino, housed in the
Union, was voted second place, but
the plate glass at Espresso gives the
drinker the advantage of being seen
while drinking a double cap.
Burgers: Blimpyburger
How can you resist the (reopened)
place, with thoughts of the Popeye
character not far from the name?
Load up on the condiments; best to
get a fried vegetable platter on the
side. L.A. Cafe, with its more so-

phisticated appeal lost by a few
votes, a well-deserved second. It's a
question of palate.
Pizza: Cottage Inn & Backroom
(tie)
You voted for Cottage Inn. You
voted for the Backroom. Pro-Cottage
Inn: sesame seed crusts; the deep
dish pizza is 'Chicago' minus the
five-hour drive. Pro-Backroom:
down the block from 611
Church/Rick's; great, hot pizza at
only a dollar a slice. Isn't it nice that
you can have both?
Hotdogs: Chicago Dog House
It'll always be Red Hots (from the
original name of Red Hot Lovers) to
us. If you're craving a 'dog, it's the
quintessential college place for
franks with off-beat music, crowded
booths, and as many condiments as
