reviewed Mr. Cecil's California Ribs. January 09, 2011
Mr. Cecil's California Ribs
I just finished a take-out meal from Mr. Cecil's in Manhattan Beach. I do not believe in reviewing a restaurant based on take-out, but I have eaten in the restaurant too so feel qualified to render …

Izaka-Ya by Katsu-ya
When I first heard that this restaurant was opening in Manhattan Beach, I was a little confused. I assumed that it was a branch of Katsuya and I did not think the space would support that concept. …
reviewed Jay Robb Protein Powder. October 22, 2009
I am an unlikely candidate to be reviewing a protein powder. I am not a serious weightlifter or fitness addict and I am not into supplements. I don't  even take a multi-vitamin. I do exercise …

Kindle 2: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device
I have been using the Kindle 2 for a couple of months now. I didn't plan on buying it; it was a birthday present. If asked prior to receiving it, I would have said that I didn't want one. Not …

Slot Machines
Some people really like to play the slots. When visiting a casino, I am always struck by the solitary gamblers sitting in front of these machines looking slightly mesmerized. I myself have never been …

Phone
I just called a friend of mine. He did not pick up and I needed to get some info to him so I left a message. As I was waiting to leave the message I was stuck by the sheer terribleness of his Voicemail …

reviewed Wines 'Til Sold Out. July 09, 2009
If you are wondering what the current economy is doing to wine sales, one indicator is the rise of online wine liquidators. I just heard about Wines 'Til Sold Out and it is a great concept. They advertise …
reviewed Mamoun's Falafel Restaurant. July 06, 2009
In my opinion, a great falafel sandwich is one of those perfect foods. The sandwich I am describing contains falafel (ground fried chickpeas), lettuce, tomato, hot sauce and tahini sauce served in a warm …

reviewed David Carradine. June 08, 2009
David Carradine
The details surrounding David Carradine's death are confusing and sad and I do not wish to delve into them here. Nor can I offer a review of his body of work since I have not seen much of it. What I can …
reviewed Los Angeles Lakers. June 04, 2009
Los Angeles Lakers
The NBA Finals start tonight and I am cautiously optimistic. They have had quite a run through the playoffs, losing games when they should have won and there are several external issues that have added …
reviewed Bebe Mochachino. June 02, 2009
Bebe with her roomate
Bebe Mochachino is a true visionary of debauchery and self promotion. While I believe there have been other famous dolls constructed out of pantyhose, none of them can claim her success in promoting her …

Merry Edwards Winery
While I enjoy wine immensely (especially red), I do not feel accomplished enough as a taster to review particular wines. I would feel a little silly describing the bouquet and structure and using words …

I will follow with a more in-depth review at some point, however, I wanted to point out two really nice things about Simmzy's:    Alcohol Content listed next to the price on the beer …
I really enjoy the Burger in a Bowl at the Counter.  I select a chicken breast, corn and black bean salsa, hard boiled egg, pepperocinis, and olives with the ginger soy dressing. It is a tad expensive, …

reviewed The Bazaar by Jose Andres. May 08, 2009
The Bazaar by Jose Andres
The Bazaar by Jose Andres is unlike any restaurant I have ever encountered; a temple of molecular gastronomy. I found my dinner to be more of an experience than a meal. It was overwhelming and thought-provoking; …
reviewed The Cantina Breakfast Burrito. April 30, 2009
Often times nostalgia colors one's view of remembrances: the elementary school yard seems much smaller than I remembered, the movie I loved as a teenager sucked when I recently saw it again and the pizza …
