The Quiet American( miscellaneous » movie reviews )"Interesting Pre Vietnam War Flick"
Michael Caine, Brendan Frasier and a cast of good Vietnamese actors create a noirish, almost surreal tale of what Saigon was like before the US invaded. Not a perfect movie but a great rental that both I and my wife enjoyed - which doesn't happen...

Cinch( local favorites » restaurants )"Good place to chill in Santa Monica"
Try Cinch on Wilshire. It's got an eclectic space and the food is pretty good. I think they may be charging a cover these days. The crowd is all pseudo groovy.

Getz/Gilberto( miscellaneous » music reviews )"Girl From Ipanema, etc"
If you are looking to get into the old brazilian jazz thing this disc is a great way to start. Perfect tunes for evening cocktails, dates, etc. Have fun.
