V for Not So Much

Well, I didn't really like V for Vendetta. At first I thought it was the creepy mask, because I don't like masks, especially not ones with crazy big smiles and a really bad hairdo to go along with them. But the real problem is that, despite a lot of interesting ideas and commentary on the current state of the world, the movie makes very little sense. There are a lot of plot holes. Anyway, the LA Times review does a better job of describing this than I can or have time to, so you should read that. I pretty much agree with it.

Eats to be Eaten

I am starting a list of places I want to eat. All are in Sacramento unless otherwise noted.

The Opa! Opa! Report

We got a hot tip (from the folks at Bearded Lady Buttons) yesterday that the new East Sacramento eatery Opa! Opa! is giving out free food weekdays 11:30-2:30, until their opening on Wednesday 3/15. So we went by yesterday to check it out. We were, indeed, given free food, which was quite good. We got a hummus appetizer, salad sampler (orzo, taboulei and cucumber/tomato salad), roasted veggies, a falafel and a gyro. The food is super. It's more of a lunch place than I had expected, kind of like Jack's Urban Eats -- although I would definitely go by there for a casual dinner. Sadly, I'm not sure there is any flaming cheese (saganaki) despite the name of the restaurant. Only time will tell.

P.S. The falafel made us think of Ben.
