Ides of March

I don't go to the theater very often, but when I do, I'm reminded of how pleasant the experience can be.

This holds true even when the movie isn't "all that." Such was the case yesterday when I saw Ides of March. So predictable, it was almost boring. Well, it WAS boring - until the big plot secret is revealed - maybe 30 or 45 minutes into the movie.

That said, watching good actors and beautiful people - like George - is always pleasant.

This flick came with a decent recommendation from family and friends, so I'd love to hear what you think.

I love, love, love this neighborhood sushi place. Cute place, great ambiance, reasonably priced sushi.

Last night, I took Mike and Kristine there and introduced them to my favorite roll - the Volcano!

It's an unusual mix of shrimp, jalapeno, cucumber and ... peanut butter! Not as weird as it sounds. I promise.

Dong Baek

A group of friends and I checked out Dong Baek, the Korean restaurant adjacent to my apartment building. I had hoped to replicate the awesome food I enjoyed in Seoul. While it definitely fell short of that goal, it was an interesting culinary experience.

The vegetarian bibimbap was definitely the highlight for me.

But I also really love the banchan or little dishes of pickled and spicy yummy things. I'll definitely be back - but maybe just for take-out as the service was lackluster.
