  • Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion

    Ten years in the making, this documentary follows the tragic story of Chinese-occupied Tibet. But beyond the bloodshed and oppression, there’s a lesson in the unearthly devotion of Tibetan monks who have been imprisoned and tortured for 20-plus years, yet still hold onto their faith and forgive their persecutors.

  • Honey

    Try mixing a "Making The Video" segment with 8 Mile, add a healthy dose of Jessica Alba’s midriff, and you’ve got Honey, in which Alba’s belly button does more emoting than the rest of her body combined.

  • Hidden Italian delight

    Manager Dean Cicala describes La Dolce Vita as “a little hidden jewel that people are happy to find here.” Sometimes it is simplicity itself that makes a dish. Pasta dishes range from $12-$19. Main courses include too many chicken options, too few veal, two beef, and only one fish option. The gems on the dessert tray are made by Denise Rosselli, and focus on chocolate. There are also sorbets, if you’re looking for something lighter. Now that warm weather has settled in, an inviting little courtyard awaits behind an wrought iron fence to offer al fresco dinning.
