They say love conquers all, but that was before Pardonnez Moi opened its doors. When Charlie made his reservation at the romantic restaurant to ask for Laura's hand in marriage, he had no idea that his proposal would be repeatedly thwarted by a revolving staff of cuckoos. Among them are a waitress obsessed with conspiracy theories, a bus boy with a cabaret act, a chef with an accent thicker than his gravy, and a violinist that doesn't even know how to play. As Laura flits from disaster to disaster, Charlie tries desperately to make heads or tails of the nonsense spewing from everyone's lips.

Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series features a concert of Scandinavian music on Sunday, May 11, at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse. Greenblatt & Seay will be playing a variety of instruments, including fiddle, guitar, hammered dulcimer, recorders, pennywhistles, and the nyckelharpa. The nyckelharpa is the official keyed fiddle of Sweden, and has 16 strings.
Greenblatt & Seay have been playing and singing together since the night they met, decades ago. Their performance on May 11 will include the championship fiddling styles of Deborah Greenblatt, and the fancy whistle-playing of David Seay.
The concert will be downstairs, and followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with the performers. Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur, one mile south of Highway 34.
The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse was built in 1925, and has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990. Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.
