IT’S GOOD NEWS WEEK It’s great to be able to say that a lot of this column will consist of good news on the restaurant front in Marin! There is a glimmer of light on the horizon with openings across the county, as well as special events at older haunts. Now it’s up to diners to support them as often as possible to keep the dining scene a sunny one. COME ON DOWN Newest of the new is Chipotle, opening this week in the remodeled Northgate Mall, San Rafael. Dedicated to serving what CEO Steve Ells calls “food with integrity,â€? it offers Mexican fast foods made from meats and poultry that are antibiotic/hormone-free and fed a vegetarian diet; all dairy ingredients are from rBGHfree milk and most beans are organic. Drop by Nov. 5 (11am to 8pm) when Chipotle celebrates with a free burrito day! (415/5070493)...Another addition at Northgate is an expanded venture from a former foodcourt takeout favorite, Jhan Thong. The owners recently opened Calgang in Northgate One, bringing their fans the same reasonably priced Thai foods (415/4993501)...A Latin newcomer with an emphasis on a healthful menu is Antigua Mexican Grill in Mill Valley’s Alto Shopping Center. Owners Mike and Sandy Lang and partner Rosa Solis aim to use local organic products. Delivery service is available. Hours are 11am to 9:30pm Monday to Saturday; 4:30 to 9pm Sunday (415/388-3882)...Italian food still draws crowds. Joining a cluster of restaurants in Novato’s Hamilton Marketplace is Pasta Moto, sister to the venue of the same name in WestďŹ eld San Francisco Centre. Besides a familiar menu of housemade pasta dishes and pizza, the Marin branch serves inventive panini and features a wine bar with Italian imports. Open daily for lunch and dinner (415/883-6656). TASTE-BUD TANTALIZERS Fall ďŹ nds local chefs in a pre-holiday mood, taking advantage of seasonal specialties to draw us in for warm dinners on cool nights. While Beaujolais Nouveau is a wine release celebrated worldwide, the Tavern at Lark Creek is starring our own American wine. Partnering with Andrew Lane Wines, the Larkspur tavern is offering the ďŹ rst Gamay Nouveau of the 2009 harvest (an exclusive release) along with a three-course menu to complement the young wine. Through Nov. 15 diners can enjoy a $27.95 meal with a bacon and egg terrine with frisee salad and heritage turkey entree (415/924-7766)... Poggio Trattoria in Sausalito welcomes autumn with two special celebrations.

Calgang, take me away...

Chef Peter McNee brings back his annual Monday night whole pig porchetta dinners, roasted on the wood-ďŹ red spit and served with a traditional Tuscan white bean stew ($16 per person). More luxurious fare arrives Nov. 10 to 14 when trufďŹ&#x201A;es rule. White trufďŹ&#x201A;es from Alba in Piemonte will be shaved generously over entrees like homemade tagliatelle with butter and sage for $35 over the price of the menu listing. Black trufďŹ&#x201A;es appear as a stufďŹ ng in game hens or in a braised pheasant meatloaf (415/332-7771)...Laughter with dinner is guaranteed when San Rafaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mexican restaurant Las Camelias presents Comedy Night (Nov. 11, 8:30pm). Ten dollars covers the entertainment fee for the show hosted by GrifďŹ n Daley (415/453-5850)...Nov. 19 marks the ofďŹ cial arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau, and in Marin this means dinner at Left Bank Brasserie, Larkspur. A la carte specials to go with the new vintage are Alsatian in origin: charcuteries, escargots, lentils with pork and sausage. A prix-ďŹ xe meal is also available at $34 (415/927-3331). THE LONG AND WINE-ING ROAD The 11th annual Wine & Food Affair (Nov. 7 and 8, 11am to 4pm) is a prime experience in northern Sonoma. Countless wineries in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valleys will be pouring and serving up delicious food at each stop. Here are a few examples: braised lamb stew with citrusmarinated olives and artichokes, duck and mushroom ragu on acorn squash polenta, portobello mushroom bombolini with bacon and hazelnuts. Tickets are $60 for the weekend, $40 for Sunday only, $25 for designated drivers.

A scene from ‘Antichrist’—before things get weird.

Mark Pitta & friend Hopelessly deranged show of violence reminds Mort Sahl of a good joke... by Davi d Te mp l e ton

Writer David Templeton takes interesting people to interesting movies in his ongoing quest for the ultimate post-film conversation. This is not a review; rather, it’s a freewheeling, tangential discussion of life, alternative ideas and popular culture.

Tuesday night show with an all-star roast event on Tuesday, Nov. 17. Pitta’s taste in movies has always leaned toward the more “challenging” films, so when he asked me last week to suggest a film with some edge to it, Antichrist seemed like just the right ticket. Directed by Lars ait! Let’s watch it again, I’m von Trier (Breaking the Waves; Dancer in confused!” the Dark; Dogville), Antichrist nearly caused So shouts comic Mark Pit- riots when it premiered at the Cannes Film ta as the new movie Antichrist comes to a Festival in France this year, with von Trier bloody and baffling end at the Christopher suffering verbal abuse from angry audience B.

Perand visually shocking film haps reports of the movie’s of the year. graphic sexual and physical “Hey,” suggests Pitta, “maybe we can ask torture—and the scene where a crazed fox them to play it backwards so it has a happy snarls “Chaos reigns!” while snacking on his ending this time!

“W

Either possessed by the devil or just really upset, Gainsbourg physically brutalizes Dafoe, if “brutal” is big enough a word to describe crushing his testicles, drilling a hole in his leg, then bolting a huge stone wheel to it. Finally, in the film’s most talked-about moment, she uses a pair of scissors to commit an act of genital self-mutilation, in closeup, which may be the most horrifying thing put on screen since Pierce Brosnan was forced to sing in Mamma Mia. “Man, I thought it was rough dating Janice Dickinson,” says Pitta as we make our way from the theater. “Clearly, their kid took the easy way out. The only way to cleanse ourselves after this is to watch a Jerry Lewis marathon. The French liked him.” “You know,” muses Sahl, “in some ways, this movie goes along with Shelley Berman’s classic joke—If a husband says something in the forest, and there’s no woman there to hear him, is he still wrong?” A few minutes later, having relocated to a nearby coffeehouse, Pitta stops to chat with some folks about the Throckmorton Theatre’s recently reported financial woes, discussing concerns that the storied nonprofit may be facing closure (or drastic changes) in the not-too-distant future. “So, this movie was all about pessimism, right?” suggests Pitta, rejoining Mort and me. “It was about grief, despair and pain, right? If I may slip in a shameless plug here, grief, despair and pain are what I’m going to end up going through if the Throckmorton closes and I can’t do my show anymore.” “That’s funny,” says Sahl. “And funnier because it’s true.” “Back to the movie, it’s hard to completely dismiss Antichrist because the performances were great,” Pitta says. “Not many actors could have pulled this off. At first, I was following the story on a linear plane, thinking, ‘OK, that makes sense. Grief, right. Pain, OK’—and then, when she goes crazy in the woods, it was like I was suddenly watching Kathy Bates in Misery, but without any of the laughs.” “So David,” Pitta asks, “did you know that scissor thing was going to happen?”

Pitta’s face looked something like this throughout most of ‘Antichrist.’

“Uh-huh,” I nod. “I read it in a review.” “It actually said,” grills Pitta, “‘Charlotte Gainsbourg cuts off her own G-spot? She takes a pair of scissors, and...’” “Yeah, something like that.” “I couldn’t watch,” Pitta confesses. “I looked at the ceiling until it was all over. What about you, Mort? Did you watch the screen when that happened?” “No! I couldn’t watch, either,” Sahl replies. “But it did remind me of a joke. What’s the difference between a golf ball and a G-spot? A guy will take an hour to look for a golf ball.” Um...ouch. “What actually bothered me about the movie,” Sahl continues, “is how hopeless it was. What the director is doing is trying to project his own emotional bankruptcy onto the audience. Because he’s established as a director, because he’s considered a cinematic genius, he’s allowed to do that. What he does to this woman in this movie is just so pessimistic. She’s a powerful woman, but then her son dies and she goes crazy and does all these horrible things, so we leave the theater thinking the world is a horrible place. Who needs that? The pessimists are already winning in this country. Look at Geithner. Look at Cheney. Just look at the pessimistic expressions they carry around on their faces. There is something wrong with our balance, things are tilting toward hopelessness, and that’s reflected in this movie. When something that is as structurally and emotionally inferior as this is passed off as the work of an auteur, that’s a trap, and we keep letting ourselves be led into it.” After a pause, Pitta says, “Wow Mort. Now I’m depressed. But hey, we just saw one of the most talked-about movies of the year. And at least you can’t say I never take you to interesting things.” “That’s true,” Sahl chuckles, “so I guess I should say thank you for inviting me to this...and may I add, I am gonna get you back for it.” < Share your favorite Mort Sahl joke with David at talkpix@earthlink.net.

“W

The question is asked by Josh Jacobs (Eion Bailey), the creator of large, gauzy, unthreatening abstractions that are snapped up by a buyer for office buildings and hospitals. Josh’s dealer is Madeleine Gray (Marley Shelton), owner of a trendy New York gallery, who keeps his paintings in the back room.

Duck and cover-up For a year now, the global financial crisis has been associated in my mind with a curious movie image from 1979: the gently rippling surface of a cup of coffee. The mug in question is poised at the edge of the Ventana Nuclear Power Plant’s main control console, and it’s the sight of those tiny vibration waves that remains to haunt shift supervisor Jack Lemmon long after the emergency SCRAM of that day averts THE CHINA SYNDROME, a full-core meltdown dire enough to render all of SoCal uninhabitable. Hounded by investigative TV journos Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas following the accident and ensuing cover-up, Lemmon is defiant about the system of safety checks and procedures in place:“We stopped it in time for one reason, the system works, now dammit the system works! That’s not the problem...” I was wowed by the James Bridges thriller’s austere beauty, its expertly wrought tension and boldness in going without a musical score. The theatrical release coincided famously with the real-life disaster of Three Mile Island (covered in the Special Edition extras). A double-duty metaphor for the abyss we looked down last September? “The shudder...the damn shudder...”—Richard Gould

Week of November 5-11, 2009

by Ly nd a R ay

ARIES (March 20 - April 19) Getting tired of obsessing over your career? Want a break from worrying about your relationship? Well, this week you should indulge your desire for independence. You might regret your impulsiveness next week, but for now, you love the freedom. And that’s the joy of being an Aries: The only moment that counts is the current one.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 19) The best way to get to the heart of a Taurus is through the stomach. Look for your favorite treat to arrive via a clever admirer. Meanwhile, on Saturday, your ruler (affectionate Venus) leaves the wishy-washy sign of Libra to enter the passionate sign of Scorpio. Whatever you do, you’ll do it with a sense of commitment. You may not go so far as to agree to marriage, but at least you’ll make plans for next week. GEMINI (May 20 - June 20) With stern Saturn in your self-expression house, you can be extra-disciplined in your creative efforts for the next five months. Those of you who work in a media field (and let’s face it—Gemini with media is an easy blend) will be strongly motivated to develop new projects. Shake off your stage fright and start producing your own show. If the Sundance Channel isn’t interested, there is always YouTube. CANCER (June 21 - July 21) Friday and Saturday mark the top of your lunar cycle. Your intuition is spot-on and you should end up in the right place at the right time. By Saturday evening hedonistic Venus begins her three-week stay in your house of romance, creativity and entertainment. This has great potential for those of you who are looking for love or want to have more fun with the love you already have. Add the mushy Moon in affectionate Leo on Sunday & Monday, and your cup runneth over... LEO (July 22 - August 22) When your ruler (the Sun) and certain planets begin to gather in the profound sign of Scorpio, it is difficult to be lighthearted. Everything and everyone seem to have a hidden agenda. You look for deeper meanings in even the most mundane experiences, but, hey, it’s OK. You’re a Leo. Why use a simple explanation when you can use a dramatic one?

VIRGO (August 23 - September 21) As the weekend begins, the emphasis is on the emotional water signs. You should make sure that your advice is given in a gentle manner. Now that cynical Saturn has left your sign, it is easier to see the humorous side of life. Of course, this assumes that you manage to ignore the news and avoid listening to your Libra friends who have become rather unusually obsessive. Ditto for your Capricorn pals. Hmm. Know any Pisces?

LIBRA (September 22 - October 22) Much as I would love to tell you that you’ve got a wonderful week ahead, you’d certainly notice a false forecast. The reality is that you are now a realist. (Pardon the redundancy.) You will not act charming unless you feel charming. This doesn’t mean you have lost your good manners. It simply means you won’t waste them on anyone who doesn’t deserve them. So there. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) All you want for your birthday is a bigger home, an exciting lover and a winning lottery ticket. Will you settle for an exciting lover? Saturday looks good for a unique and intimate encounter. But, this doesn’t rule out your other birthday wishes, so feel free to pick up some lottery tickets before you go house hunting. Good luck and happy birthday.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20) The predominance of water sign energy has you feeling a bit soggy. Don’t volunteer for any high-energy activities until Sunday. Now that your ruler (idealistic Jupiter) is moving forward in the progressive sign of Aquarius, it is time to stand up for what you believe. If you can’t find a protest to join, start your own.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 18) The uncomfortable pressure you are feeling now is not going away soon. You may not get anything accomplished without a serious amount of effort for the next few weeks. This could have a detrimental effect on your physical well-being, as you could fatigue your body while trying to keep up with it all. Start delegating the little stuff and save your energy for the big things. And, if you’re clever, you’ll decide it’s all little stuff. AQUARIUS (January 19 - February 17) It is quite a dilemma to have the wanderlust planet, Jupiter, in your sign at the same time that restrictive Saturn is in your travel house. You really, really want to see the world, but Saturn insists that you better have a darn good reason for leaving your responsibilities behind. Go ahead and take a trip. You simply need to take all your responsibilities with you. Sigh.

PISCES (February 18 - March 19) A comforting watery influence makes you feel like you’re finally floating downstream instead of battling the rapids. If you’re looking for romance, try the travel section of the bookstore or the away section in the football stadium. Falling in love with someone local might not be in the stars, but won’t it be nice to have a lover in New Orleans to visit? < E-mail Lynda Ray at cosmicclues@gmail.com or check out her Web site at www.lyndarayastrology.com NOVEMBER 6 – NOVEMBER 12, 2009 PACIFIC SUN 29

Q:

I kept seeing this woman I was interested in at pool parties, but I’ve always been very shy and reluctant to make the first move. At the third party, she hugged me as she was leaving. The following week, she kissed me. I invited her to come up for dinner. We had a great time. I even kissed her, and she didn’t resist. Several days later, she said she’d see me at the pool that afternoon, but never showed or called. Midweek, I texted her, inviting her over for “drinks, soft music, and a nice relaxing massage to ease the stress of the work week.” No response. I just meant a back rub, clothes on. I’ve never thought of a massage as having sexual connotations. Do you think she inferred that from my offer of a “stress reliever,” and is that where I went wrong?—Devastated

A:

A guy who’s “never thought of a massage as having sexual connotations” is a guy who thinks it’s an act of rudeness to be male. None of that sexually aggressive “Me Tarzan, you Jane” stuff for you: “Um, if it’s not a big deal...and if it is, I totally understand...but maybe we could spend a respectful, gender-neutral afternoon exploring the Tarzan archetype, then use this coupon for a two-for-one cucumber facial.” Offering a woman a massage is, like, the oldest college-boy sex gambit in the book: “If you’d just take your shirt off, I could really get at that knot.” If the woman isn’t already sleeping with you, she’s going to find the massage offer creepy—unless it comes as a spontaneous (or seemingly spontaneous) idea in the context of hanging out. Women do expect dating to lead to some naturally occurring, mutually satisfying make-out type stuff—not “Hey, why don’t you come over and lie there face down while I tenderize you like a roast?” A woman doesn’t want a “stress-reliever”; she wants a date—with a man who’s man enough to say, “Hey, let’s go out.” This suggests he feels he’s enticement enough; he isn’t telling her, “I know an evening with me isn’t that great an offer, but maybe if I throw in free spa services?” Chances are, you also take rejection personally instead of thinking maybe the woman has a boyfriend or a girlfriend or maybe you aren’t her type—all of which should lead you to the same simple, unemotional conclusion: Whoops, time to move on to the next. No, no, you couldn’t possibly take that approach. Poor dear, you’ve “always been very shy and reluctant to make the first move.” You can continue taking the mousy way out, admiring your favorite pool bunny from afar, and praying she’ll be man enough to throw herself at you. Instead of getting her on the phone and asking her out, continue to duck rejection—or at least knowing whether you’ve been rejected— by text messaging her. It should help you while away the weekends as you try to solve the mystery of whether she has texting disabled, her phone fell in the toilet or she did get your message—the intended or the unintended one: “There are alpha males, and then there’s me—alpha moss.”

Q:

A friend and I got sucked into the recent saga between author Salman Rushdie and his ex-girlfriend. She told a British paper he dumped her by e-mail and is still seriously hung up on his ex-wife. He retaliated by telling the New York Post the ex-girlfriend’s “broke, unemployed,” “an accomplished liar” and always carrying around “a large, radioactive bucket of stress.” We’re debating what to do when an ex, famous or not, publicly dumps on you. Your thoughts?—Two Curious

A:

Rushdie, who still has a fatwa on him for insulting Islam with The Satanic Verses, has now made such a public jackass of himself that he’s probably sending the jihadists MapQuest directions to his apartment. Of course, his first offense was dumping his girlfriend by e-mail. Not only is that rude, but any man with three morsels of sense knows better than to do it to a woman he believes is carrying around “a large, radioactive bucket of stress.” When publicly attacked, the temptation is to leap up and offer corrections and finish with a little turn of the knife. It’s a temptation to be avoided. Famous or not, the high road is always the wisest direction: “I’m sorry she feels that way. It just didn’t work out between us, and I wish her the best.” (Translation: “Hey, crazy women are good in bed. Guess I succumbed. Won’t happen again.”) < (c)2009, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved. www.advicegoddess.com. Got a problem? E-mail AdviceAmy@aol.com or write to Amy Alkon, 171 Pier Ave. #280, Santa Monica, CA 90405.
