California dreaming
The California Guitar Trio, who spoke with Bill Colrus in advance of tonight’s concert at Barking Legs Theater, has been steadily redefining the parameters of guitarists’ and guitar trios’ musical range. The prolific and eccentric artists have produced 17 studio and live albums featuring surf covers and beautiful reimaginings of classical canons, concertos and even lute suites. The group also pulls themes and techniques from blues, jazz, rock and world music. The California Guitar Trio’s latest release, “Masterworks,” features their treatment of pieces by Beethoven, Bach, Vivaldi and Rossini.

A chip off the old ice block
The venerable bar with the carved-up tables, the baskets of fried pickles and spiral staircase up to a patio runs a special on Tuesdays-in addition to the daily draft beer happy hour-for flavored ice picks. Don’t know what those are? Maybe the sage drinkers at the Pickle Barrel can help.

When: Happy hour is 5-7 p.m., ice picks available until 3 a.m.
Where: 1012 Market St.
How much: $4 per pick
