Hollow in the Hills
A Hollow in the Hills is a collection of haunting one-act plays written by Penelope Chan, based on the short stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne. The pieces blend allegory and magical realism to create a dreamscape world where the audience is immersed in sound and emotion, while an ensemble of multi-talented actors directed by Barbie Insua and Josh Zeller weaves tales of guilt, redemption, despair, and hope through movement, voice, and live sound-effects.

It has been a few years (FOUR!), a new chef (Chef Travis Flood), and a changing seasonal menu since I’ve visited Alexander’s Steakhouse. It was high time for another visit. If you are not familiar with Alexander’s Steakhouse it is an East-West fusion of decedent steaks, not steaks, appetizers, sides, and desserts. It also has a full bar and and an extensive wine list. Eating at Alexander’s is not just a meal but an experience. Expect to wile away a couple of hours while you dine on their wide assortment of inventive and delicious food and sip a glass of wine or two. It’s always fun to get a little treat you’re not expecting, Chef Flood’s amuse-bouche of crisp bread, goat cheese and marinated beets made a nice little introduction to the meal to come. As did the assortment of fresh baked breads.

Curious History of Saffron in Japan
Susan Burns, explores the incorporation of saffron into Japanese pharmacology, a complex process that involved the rise of natural science and a "productive confusion" that linked saffron with other botanicals.
