Some Things You can Bank On ...

It was a Piccolo Spoleto one man show called Man 1, Bank 0.

A true story told by Patrick Combs who deposited a fake non-negotiable $95,000 "You may already have won" check.

The account started earning interest, and, by phone, his bank assured him he could spend it.

He had the bank issue him a cashiers check which he put it in a safe deposit box. At the same bank.

Then it got interesting.

Another choice you can take to the bank is the 2010 Piccolo Spoleto Festival JAC Jazz Series.

Upstairs at McCrady's Restaurant Thursday night was the setting for the Cobblestone Quartet featuring George Kenney.

David Archer was on guitar, David Keller on bass and Asa Holgate manned the drums.

There were works by Ellington, Gershwin, Miles, Jobim and a guest step-to-the-mic by Jennifer Davis of Mt. Pleasant.

To round out the evening, a few doors down East Bay Street at Southend Brewery, it was the Thursday "Salsa Night" with dj Luigi.

He explained they were moving to the sound of the BACHATA beat. It is scheduled for every Thursday night at the downtown brewery.
