This young quartet might be described as a string band with pop music sensibilities – or, perhaps, a cutting-edge vocal quartet with acoustic instruments. Tripping Lily features Monica Rizzio (fiddle/ukulele/piano/vocals), Alex Becrelis (mandolin/guitar/washboard-/vocals), Demetrius Becrelis (guitar/ukulele/mandolin/vocals) and Laird Boles (stringed bass). Last year, the group won two Independent Music Awards – for Best Folk Record and Best Acoustic Song. They’ve made guest appearances in pops concerts with Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra and have appeared on the Showtime series “The Big C.”Tickets: $12.

The Lanes: Bowl & Bistro

January 26, 2013

Looking for something to do on a cold winter day, or maybe it’s just rainy?- Look no further!  The Mashpee Commons has a new venue called The Lanes, it is a bistro and bowling alley in one!  During the day children are welcome, however after 9pm The Lanes turns into a 21+ venue, offering alcohol and even musical entertainment!  They offer wines, beers and mixed drinks which is nice for the adults who want to enjoy a casual drink while bowling.  I went early in the evening with friends and although their were many adults who were drinking, it was no issue for the folks with kids there.  The management has done a great job keeping up with that no doubt.  When you walk in there is a bar and dining area where you can also wait to bowl.  They have large flat screen TV’s showing the waitlist for bowling so you can keep up with your placement.  If it’s quiet then no worries there will be no wait.  Up a few stairs is the bowling alley and more tables to wait or eat at.  They offer a good amount of lanes, I think maybe 10.  They can put bumpers up for the kids as well.  The menu seems to have a nice variety to it, but definitely has options coinciding with the “bistro” aspect of the name.  I tried their fried pickles which were great, and ended with their mini cannoli’s that were just the right size to share and quench my sweet tooth!  This place seems to have it all, take a look at their website for more information: http://lanesbowlandbistro.com/
