Rock with You: MJ + Latin-twist = Holiday Fun!

I got the chance to see Rock with You a couple nights ago, and I’m really glad I did. The first thing that I must point out – for those who will be going to the show – is that they have Cuban food and drinks in the front of the theatre. So, going early is a great idea! But, I digress…

Peter Pan: More than just digital flying

Last night, I went to see the new "high-tech", threesixty experience of Peter Pan at the Orange County Performing Arts Center with high expectations of amazing digital feats and wonders of how live theater will change in our ever-evolving computerized world. While the show did not dissappoint with the amazing 360-degree video projections of London and Neverland, what I (and my family) remember most are the talents of the actors and actresses, puppeteers and dancers (both on stage and in the air!).

Where Do You Go?: Soup for the Los Angeles Soul

I know most of the time Los Angeles weather claims us this identity of perpetual sunshine and warmth. And as a native Angeleno, I don't necessarily deny that this isn't true most of the time. But as I look out to the mist of Los Angeles morning winter drizzle while sitting in an office that could do with a thermostat adjustment, I can't help but think about having a nice bowl of soup.  My list of favorite soup and soup-based food is as eclectic as the Los Angeles cultural landscape:

Downtown LA Holiday Event Picks (Editor Edition)

The weather outside is frightful...

..and it actually kind of is!  Though today is particularly lovely, lately there's been a chill in the air calling me toward warm holiday drinks and bowls of soup.  Los Angeles perhaps isn't known for its Winter Wonderland experience (soap bubble snow at the Grove doesn't count, does it?), but with the cold wind billowing outside I am reminded that the winter season is upon us and with it Holiday Events!  To make sure the list doesn't get too extensive, here are my holiday picks for Downtown LA:
