VERY September the Monterey Jazz Festival comes to town, andâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;forgive the clichĂŠâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been there, you have no idea what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re missing. Unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a regular at Kuumbwa, your definition of the word jazz is almost certainly way too narrow. (No offense.) Jazz is a big word, rooted in the blues and, deeper than that, in African rhythms and Celtic melodies informed by the European classical tradition, incorporating rock, hip-hop and electronica. And the meaning of the word keeps expanding, thanks in part to Kuumbwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Tim Jackson, who has been artistic director of MJF for a decade now. This year at the Monterey Fairgrounds, the jazz spectrum will be on full display. Representing the proud past will be the legendary Dave Brubeck, who once staked out the musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cutting edge, and now, at 89, is still creating superb new work. Also representing the great tradition is Wynton Marsalis, for whom the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;trad jazzâ&#x20AC;? was coined when he first arrived on the scene 25-plus years ago looking (and sounding) like some Eternal Jazz Trumpeter from central casting. But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing: Those lucky enough to catch his set with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Saturday might be stunned to witness the breadth of this straight-ahead jazz bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repertoire. Brubeck and Marsalis will be performing on the big stage in the Arena, along with other all-stars: Randy Brecker and Joe Lovano (reviving Miles and Coltrane); Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Kenny Barron, John Scofield and others. Also on the Jimmy Lyons Stage, Saturday afternoon, will be a legend representing another tradition: the banjo-picking folk singer and populist hero Pete Seeger, a national treasure, and, at 80 years old, still a deeply

inspiring entertainer, whom Jackson has generously invited into jazzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big tent. Joining these old masters will be a whole flock of fresh young talents. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a brief glimpse of some of the newcomers playing next weekend (all of these performers will be performing in one of the charming sheds or outdoor stages available with a $35 grounds pass). :WhhE`WUVb To give an idea of the range covered by this gorgeous young singer (meant both ways): On her new record of mostly original songs, she also performs the Ike and Tina Turner classic â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Idolize You,â&#x20AC;? Sweet Honey in the Rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey Mann,â&#x20AC;? the Led Zeppelin ballad â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank Youâ&#x20AC;? and Patsy Clineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strange.â&#x20AC;? 3a^S`O\hOA^OZRW\U Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 23-yearold standup bass player and bandleader who plays funky instrumentals and sings in three languages. 8]\ObVO\0ObWabS This young pianist/ composer (and master of the melodica!) released his first album, Times in New Orleans, in 2003. Then he graduated from high school. And went to Juilliard. He made his debut at Carnegie Hall two years later and has since become a sensation in New York. /[P`]aS/YW\[caW`S Like Batiste a Wynton Marsalisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; protĂŠgĂŠ, this powerful

and intelligent trumpeter won the 20th Annual Thelonious Monk jazz competition, then jammed onstage with two of his teachers, MJF stalwarts Terence Blanchard and Roy Hargrove. Check out the YouTube video. Akinmusire kills. @OcZ;WR]\A half-Argentine guitarist from New Mexico via New York, Midon has a unique approach to his instrument, a classically soulful singing style and a disarming way with a lyric. DWXOg7gS`This mind-blowingly inventive pianist/composer has no classical music training, but he does have two Ph.Dsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in math and physics. Blending Western and Eastern musical influences, he has produced 10 albums in 10 years with three bands, all of which have received breathless reviews. Jazz is a big thing, getting bigger all the time, and this is one of its biggest weekends anywhere, ever.

THE MONTEREY JAZZ FESTIVAL runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20, at the Monterey Fairgrounds. Grounds passes start at $35. For info and tickets visit www.montereyjazz festival.org.

2==<7D3@A/:B@CB6A THEREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BEEN much aDoon about the reformation of winemaking wizard Randall Grahm: the paring down of his Bonny Doon Vineyard empire, the pursuit of the more honest terroir style of winemaking, a new restaurant in his Westside tasting room. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forgotten where he came from and where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or all the punning, jesting and general marketing mayhem that made him what he is today. This Monday, Grahm reads from his new â&#x20AC;&#x153;vinthologyâ&#x20AC;? Been Doon So Long, an eclectic grouping of essays, poems, satire, parody and song lyrics, all trussed up with a selection of terrifying illustrations. The work, collected mainly from the semiannual winery newsletter published since 1987, includes such masterpieces as the original lyrics from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Born to RhĂ´neâ&#x20AC;? (including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leader of the Pac-Rimâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;That Old Time Pomerolâ&#x20AC;?), the letters and essays that needled Wine Spectator magazine, and of course, the cantos of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Da Vino Commedia: The Vinferno.â&#x20AC;? Newly inducted Grahm groupies will have the chance to learn all about his screwcap manifesto and absorb his serious reflections on a flawed and overinflated industry. The bookâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;dedicated to longtime Bonny Doon marketing genius and current Soif eminence John Lockeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;closes with a glimpse of the future of vin de terroir. Attendees of the reading will, of course, be invited to taste which way the Bonny Doon vines are growing today. (Jessica Lussenhop)

RANDALL GRAHM reads from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Been Doon So Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Monday, Sept. 21, at 7pm at Bookshop Santa Cruz, 1520 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. Event starts with a wine tasting. For info call 831.423.0900.

monogamy and serial adventures. Zellweger has vivacity enough, but this Auntie Mameâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;like road movie treats her like a traffic-stopping beauty. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s separated from her husband (Kevin Bacon), a noted bandleader; meanwhile she haphazardly parents two children: the all but openly gay Robbie (Mark Rendall) and his stepbrother, and our narrator, George (Logan Lerman), a writer-to-be dazzled by J.D. Salinger. The production design by Brian Morris, the music by Mark Isham

and the photography by Marco Pontecorvo are all of a high quality. The â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s urban locations are expensive looking. But scarcely a minute of My One and Only rings true: from little things like a lady leaving her purse at a table with a man sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned not to trust, or bigger moments like a pumped-up scene of a robbery-minded hitchhiker. David Koechner does some very good work here as a Midwestern paint company magnate. (Opens Fri at Del Mar.) (RvB)

(PG-13; 99 min.) No one is doing what Sandra Bullock does, walking the line between glamour and girl-next-door, producing her own comedies and getting mileage out of being a New Jersey girl in a Fifth Avenue body, a quick fast lady in world too slow for her. But All About Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;despite a sturdy screwball comedy scriptâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;shows that Bullock may have to move on to a new stage. Bullock plays Mary Magdalene Horowitz, a Sacramento crossword puzzle composer still living at home with her parents, who is set up on a blind date with Steve (Bradley Cooper), a cameraman from â&#x20AC;&#x153;CCN News.â&#x20AC;? Mary falls madly in love at first sight and starts chasing Steve around the country. Thomas Haden Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as a straight-faced, splendidly conceited newsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; takes up some of the slack as Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-worker, who mischievously encourages Mary in her pursuit. (RvB) 1=:2A=C:A(PG13; 108 min.) Surreal, Charlie-Kaufmanesque comedy features Paul Giamatti playing himself, in a world where souls can be removed and traded.

Thus is Paris Hilton finally explained. (SP) 27AB@71B'(R; 113 min.) Humans and alien refugees live in close and uncomfortable proximity in Johannesburg in dystopian sci-fi thriller by Neill Blomkamp. The story is told documentary style, as we follow the mysterious disappearance of Wikus (Sharito Copley), a human employee of Multi-National United. During a raid on the alien camp, Wikus is sprayed with some alien fluid. After this incident, we can cut and paste in much of David Cronenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of The Fly, as the smarmy Wikus begins to mutate, losing his fingernails and teeth. Producer Peter Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand is visible in the flawless animation of the bug creatures. All of the most interesting parts of this storyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; about the otherness of the aliensâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are kept offcamera. (RvB) 3FB@/1B(R; 98 min.)

The new film from Mike Judge (Office Space and Idiocracy)is a comedy of cuckoldry and castration. Joel (Jason Bateman) runs a small company. His wife, Suzie (Kristen Wiig), is on a sex strike. At Joelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workplace, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing but chaos; the employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prejudices make for squabbles. Enter a hot little grifter named Cindy (Mila Kunis). Hoping for a fair shot at her, Joel takes the worthless advice of his old pal Dean (Ben Affleck). Some good laughs and quotable bits here, particularly a running joke about Suzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweatpants, fastened with the security of a chastity belt. (RvB) 47</:23AB7</B7=< !2(R; 81 min.) A 60

Minutesâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style exposĂŠ on Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crumbling infrastructure, cast with characters for whom one feels about as much empathy as one would if they were crash-test dummies. When the premonition-wracked Nick (Bobby Campo) saves his friends from flying engine blocks and race car wheels, a frustrated Death goes after them all in more baroque ways. I admired

the scene of a mother at a beauty parlor being tended by a pair of beauticians acting like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in Sartreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Maids, among a riot of malfunctioning machinery. Then, also, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a swastikatattooed tow-truck driver immolated in the middle of trying to organize a cross-burning. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one character worth sparing is George (Mykelti Williams), a security guard who tries to kill himself: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just trying to give God what I think he wants.â&#x20AC;? That God hates us and wants us all dead is the underscored message of this unusually unpretentious and honestly misanthropic snuff film; the elationproducing death mechanisms in 3-D are worthy of the Coyote and the Roadrunner. The demise of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total macho butthole Hunt (Nick Zano), staged at the swimming pool of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forest Lawn Country Club,â&#x20AC;? is pretty ingenious even by the standards of the franchise. (RvB) #2/GA=4 AC;;3@(PG-13; 95

min.) Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a greeting-card writer, has his heart broken by a girl he knew for about two years. She was called Summer (Zooey Deschanel). As Tom recalls this tale in random-accessed moments, we begin to see the bigger picture. (500) Days of Summer is allegedly an antiromantic film, but the result is yet another alterna-date movieâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a little brighter, a little more referential, than usual. The scenes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go on so long that they wear out their welcome. And yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so full of negative spaceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;places where jokes could have been planted, places where the characters could have been deepened. If only director Marc Webb had spent as much time thinking how to fill in the blanks as he spent murmuring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be Annie Hall for our generation.â&#x20AC;? (RvB) 6/<5=D3@(R; 100

min.) A well-built, good-looking and satisfyingly low comedy.

A quartet of Southern California types heads to Vegas for a bachelor party. They are: kittywhipped, Larry-like Stu (Ed Helms), confident but wrongheaded Moe-style leader Phil (Bradley Cooper) and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;one-man wolf packâ&#x20AC;? Alan, played by the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standout, Zach Galifianakis. Director Todd Phillips solidly builds the situations, thinking up strategies to bolster the risky comedy. (RvB)

A3@3<7BG (2005) Serenity was clearly bound for cult moviedom from day one, being based on a cult TV show, Firefly, from a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s cult icon, Joss Whedon. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a movie that definitely has a polarizing effect. I personally consider it the second coming of Star Wars (unlike The Phantom Menace, which was the fake second coming of Star Wars). It has the sharpest, most entertaining writing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen in a sciencefiction film. The plot is solid B-movie stuff about the Little Spaceship That Could, but the political and philosophical underpinnings are, for my money, the most interesting in a sci-fi film since Blade Runner. (Plays at the Del Mar on Fri and Sat at midnight.) (SP)

7<5:=C@7=CA 0/AB3@2A(R;

160 min.) Quentin Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holocaust film is the shouldhave-been true story of Operation Kino, the plot to destroy Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gang through their own love for cinema. Participants in the plot include sweetheart of the Reich Bridget von Hammersmark (Diana Kruger, never better); a mysterious Parisian movie-theater owner known as Emmanuelle Mimieux (Melanie Laurent) and a drawling British film critic-turnedcommando (Michael Fassbender). Opposing these flawed heroes is the smiling-serpent Christoph Waltz as Hans â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jew Hunterâ&#x20AC;? Walda. The loose cannons running around are the Basterds themselves, a band of homicidal Jewish guerrillas indebted to their leader, Brad Pittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aldo Raine, for 100 Nazi scalps. Yet this is a genuine art movie; nothing is as rapt here as Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swoon over a beautiful girl on a ladder. Here in cinema form is an essay about Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fascination with and distate for the war film. (RvB) 7B;756B53B:=C2

(R; 105 min.) The trio of Jack White, the Edge and Jimmy Page got together for a summit meeting in a studio for It Might Get Loud, Davis Guggenheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine documentary paean to the electric guitar. What happens is not really more than a sum of its parts, though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gratifying to see three such first-rate guitarists stumbling over the tricky chords of the Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Weightâ&#x20AC;? just like all of us campfire jammers.

Meryl Streepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatnessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;her facility with accents, her plasticity and that uncompromising quality every really lasting actress has to haveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has been used to portray the limits of human suffering. In Julie & Julia, Streep gets to kick up her heels. She has such fun with the part of the cookbook writer Julia Child that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistently intoxicating to watch. Streep continues at full sail through the film, elevated a bit on a high heels and trotting with the happy clunkiness of a Clydesdale. Childsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; distinctive voiceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the whoop of surprise, the trill and warble when she talkedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;makes Streepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the film enthralling. But there had to be some way to hold the film together, and sure enough disaster befalls. Half of this film is based on the hustledinto-print book version of a blog by Julie Powell about replicating all of Childsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recipes. Amy Adams plays Julie, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a horror. Director Nora Ephron tries for frankness in her script by having Julie Powell call herself a bitch. That isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to rehab her. (RvB)

title character, voiced by Elijah Wood, is a doll-size creature with a zipper front and camera lenses for eyes. As he awakes, the Age of Man has just come to a noisy end. The only living creatures are these mysterious living dolls and their hunters: killer androids made of bones and servos. The creature 9 encounters some of his fellow creatures: 2, a wise old man; then comes the ninja girl 7 (voiced by Jennifer Connelly), a warrior with a seagull skull for a helmet.

The festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chaos helps Elliot take the cork out of his bottled-up sexuality. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to make a good movie about this event; the younger the viewer, the sicker they are of hearing about it. Taking Woodstockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serene appreciation for a passing time makes this one of the best fictional movies about the 1960s. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the history lover in Schamus and Lee that appreciates Woodstockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B/97<5E==2AB=19 uniqueness, and its ultimately transitory (R; 128 min.) Ang Lee nature.

Fujimoto was once the lover (or husband) of the colossal sea goddess Gran Mamare (Cate Blanchett). Ozuworthy moments of enchantment appear throughout. Avoiding clear stories of good and evil, Miyazaki is both Buddhist and animist, telling of the opposition of creative and destructive forces. (RvB)

Catering To the Crowd The man behind Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Main answers our questions 0G16@7AB7</E/B3@A

C

HEF MICHAEL CLARK got his start at the age of 13, â&#x20AC;&#x153;washing pots and pans at Whitbreadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breweryâ&#x20AC;? in the south of England. Years later, while commuting to work at Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous Savoy Hotel each day, he had time to read the collected works of John Steinbeck. That was it. Clark decided to live on Cannery Row. From the kitchens of Pebble Beach Lodge to the Brennan House in Watsonville, Clark became California restaurant-savvy while starting up his celebrated catering company. After more than a decade Clark sold Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catering and in 2001 opened Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Main in Soquel. Next month he joins in a new festival of local cuisine, Santa Cruz Restaurant Week, offering $25 prix fixe menus for seven indulgent days.

MICHAEL CLARK: The great thing about catering is you know exactly how many people, how much food to put out, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of control. But people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize the amount of work. Clint Eastwood would call up and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to set up a dinner on the beach. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the middle of nowhere, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re practically camping. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run out of food and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget one single thing. With restaurants, on the other hand, you can do all the pre-planning, and then something happens. You expect a full restaurant and suddenly thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only two tables. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sweating bullets, how will you pay employees? On the flip side, a usually slow day, like Sunday, might suddenly be completely packed. Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

(Laughter.) Actually, my wife Denise is very good in the kitchen. The only time that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let me cook is when we have guests. Truthfully, everything in our house is food-oriented. Every book, every magazine. My wife is a foodie, too so even all our travel is food-oriented. We just came back from Buenos Aires, where we went to all the wineries. EVObRWaVR]g]caVO[SZSaaZgZ]dS-

I was fortunate to be invited on a fishing trip to Canada and brought back wild salmon. Cooking that salmonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ah, I can just taste it now. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to get a beautiful piece of grass-fed beef, or special pork from TLC Ranchâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy. 6Oa`SabOc`O\bT]]RU]bbS\PSbbS`-

Oh, by far. Restaurants have gotten better. Biggest change is quality of food and how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grown. People are more aware of what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eating. When I started there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any spring mix, there was iceberg lettuce. Now there are all those wonderful, fresh organic ingredients.

D HOFFMANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S baking career began at the Old Theatre CafĂŠ under the tutelage of Bavarian pastry maestro Lorenz Rothbucher. A native of the Los Angeles area, Hoffman had just graduated from UCSC and called working as a baker â&#x20AC;&#x153;a romantic idea.â&#x20AC;? In time, Hoffman and his wife, June, a fellow UCSC graduate, moved up to Seattle, where for 16 years they created a successful pastry and wedding cake business. But Santa Cruz beckoned again, and in 2001 the Hoffmans opened their restaurant and pastry shop on Pacific Avenue, expertly aided by their UCSC-grad son and Culinary Institute of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;trained daughter.

ED HOFFMAN: We wanted to encorporate more food items into the mix. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because as soon as I opened my first bakery shop, people started asking for soups and salads and quiches. I never figured Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be making all these different dishes. But I just decided to offer the best of the bestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; my best recipes.

0/97<5B6303AB=47B Ed Hoffman shows off his chocolate cake.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Use a mix.â&#x20AC;? But my chefs were always confusing the waff le mix and the pancake mix. So I just went back to the old way. My pancake recipe is the old Bubble Bakery recipeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it has a touch of rice f lour, eggs, f lour, buttermilk. They melt in your mouth. Not too heavy. 2]g]cQ]]YObV][S-

I like the cream tortes. I make a version of tiramisu in a torte styleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;espresso torteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;real creamy but a little bit light.

There can be some stress. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a 30-year professional and you know everything inside out and people come in and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get peanuts or something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allergic to. People are asking me constantly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in it? Do you use this or that?â&#x20AC;? It can be hard to please everyone. When I started in the business, white sugar was the enemy. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s f lourâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and just when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really mastered sourdough bread!

I do, I confess. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat as much as I used to, but a little bit after a meal, it closes things. Then you can move to the living room for some port. Civilized.

When Mrs. Johnson comes in for her cake and sayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s its lovely, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great. You feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re contributing to the joie de vivre of the community.

MICHAEL ALONZO: Well, most of my friends had come out here to work in the tech industry, so when I came to visit and saw the fabulous weather, wow! So my fiance and I drove across the country. I interviewed at the Westin St. Francis, and the same day I got a call from Pasatiempo. It had a great golf course and I was tired of working in hotels.

As far as produce, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fantastic. But as far as exotic ingredients, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re easier to get in a big city.

I love sandwiches (laughs). Right now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the mood for barbecue pulled pork.

Believe it or not, I started off in engineering, but my uncle was a chef at our local Hilton, and I started working for him. He saw that I had a knack for it, so he trained me. EVObeOabVS[OX]`QVOZZS\US eVS\g]cO``WdSROb6]ZZW\a6]caS-

We have 300-plus members from pretty diverse backgrounds. They wanted consistency, but some wanted fine dining; some were more into comfort casual. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ref lected in the menu. The menu is across the board.

Astrology Free Will

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of September 16 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): To the thug who stole my Chevy Malibu from its parking place while I was recording an album in San Francisco back in 1991: I forgive you. To the lovely and talented Artemisia, who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring herself to fall in love with me as we partied at the Burning Man festival back in 2001: I forgive you. To the agent who helped my writing career so much but also cheated me out of thousands of dollars: I forgive you. To any Aries readers who hate it when I refer to my personal life in their horoscopes, and would much rather I confine myself to talking about them: I forgive you, and recommend that you engage in a more thorough and profound version of the cleansing I just illustrated.

B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): The old saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have your cake and eat it tooâ&#x20AC;? suggests that maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good idea to go out on dates with a variety of lovers while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re engaged to be married. Nostradamus scholar John Hogue has taken the spirit of this idea and created a variation that I think applies to you right now, Taurus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have your past and your future, too,â&#x20AC;? he says. In other words, you cannot fully embrace the exciting and daunting possibilities that loom ahead of you if you also insist on immersing yourself in the pleasures of the past. You can either have the old ways or the new ways, but not both.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): According to my astrological analysis, you currently have a certain resemblance to a vacuum cleaner or a hungry baby or a min-black hole. Every time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve turned my meditations to the Gemini tribe, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hearing a psychic version of a giant sucking sound. What does it all mean? I sense that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re especially voracious right now, almost insatiableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inclined to engorge and absorb any old thing that you happen to find in front of you. Are my speculations true? If so, I hope and pray that all the things youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finding in front of you are healthy for you. But just in case some of them are not: Would you consider exercising some discrimination about what you allow to enter into the sacred temple of your body and mind? 1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): These days, your gods can kick the butts of everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gods. Likewise, your lawyers and agents and sidekicks can most likely outwit, outdo and out-wrestle everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crucial to note that if you try to work alone, you will not be able to kick other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s butts, let alone the butts of their gods, lawyers, agents and sidekicks. The skills of your allies will be indispensable. The way I see it, your test in the coming days will be to overcome any tendency you might have to indulge in pathological levels of self-sufficiency as you cultivate a greater capacity to ask for and receive help. :3=( July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all mutants,â&#x20AC;? read the headline of a report on the latest genetic research. It turns out that like everyone else, you have between 100 and 200 mutations in your DNAâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;absolutely new characteristics that were not passed down to you by your parents. To gather the evidence for this revelation, scientists had to sort through huge amounts of data; there are thousands of genes but only a few mutations. A Chinese scientist who was a member of the research team said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;finding this tiny number of mutations was more difficult than finding an antâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s egg in an emperorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rice store.â&#x20AC;? I predict that you will soon have a comparable experience, Leo: From an overwhelming array of choices, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to locate the rare catalysts you need.

D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a device on the market that claims to age wine very quickly. The makers of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clef du Vinâ&#x20AC;? say that by using their simple technology, you can â&#x20AC;&#x153;accelerate the aromatic development of the wineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s f lavor and soften its structure.â&#x20AC;? So dramatic is the supposed effect that â&#x20AC;&#x153;one second of the device in the wine is equal to one yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age.â&#x20AC;? I believe that you now have the metaphorical equivalent of this marvel, Virgo. This temporary talent wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work on wine, but it could perform wonders with other processes that would benefit from having their evolution expedited.

:70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): â&#x20AC;&#x153;The soft-minded person always fears change,â&#x20AC;? said one of my favorite transformers, Martin Luther King Jr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For him, the greatest pain is the pain of a new idea.â&#x20AC;? The corollary to Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pronouncement is that changes are less likely to be painful if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not afraid of them.

According to my astrological analysis, Libra, none of that stuff will be an issue for you in the coming weeks. As you slip into a phase of riotous growth, I expect you will have abundant access to previously dormant reserves of courage and tough-mindedness.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): Studies show that many people believe their attendance at a sports event impacts the outcome of the game. They are obviously suffering from a ridiculous delusion, right? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re enthralled by the kind of magical thinking that our primitive ancestors engaged in, right? Normally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say yes, but not right now, not for you Scorpios. For a limited time only, your presence at events where people congregate may exert an uncanny inf luence far beyond the power of logic to explain. Your opinions will carry more weight than usual, and your power to shape group dynamics will be at a peak.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reading the astrological omens correctly, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now ensconced in a smooth groove and not even close to being stuck in a cluttered rut. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making the right moves for the best reasons, and never trying to get ahead at the expense of others. During a grace period like this, I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be wise to convene what I call a problem team. A problem team is a posse of smart allies whose task it is to dream up every possible glitch that could threaten to undermine your efforts in the coming weeks. They lead you through dry runs that test your ref lexes and prime your resourcefulness, thereby making those glitches unlikely to occur.

1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty much a genius when it comes to the meaning of Kurt Cobainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrics, the art of cooking perfect scrambled eggs and the secrets of being a good listener, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an absolute idiot about how a car engine works, how to make money on eBay and how to craft a foreign policy that would deal effectively with Pakistan. What about you, Capricorn? What are dumb about? This is an excellent time to cure your ignorance about any subject that will be important for you to be smarter about in the future. /?C/@7CA( Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): The following projects would be excellent ways for you to spend your time in the coming weeks: 1. Attend a fantasy camp where you learn rodeo tricks. (They might come in handy during committee meetings and collaborative efforts in the next six months.) 2. Teach a worthy candidate the intricacies of licking your nuzzle spots. (It no longer makes sense to expect people to read your mind). 3. Scratch an itch that has been subliminally bugging you. (Unless of course you find some value in being subliminally bugged.) 4. Solicit lively information from a devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advocate, a sexy mother, and a world traveler. (You need exposure to people whose perspectives will pry open a couple of the closed areas of your mind).

>7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): Your quest has come to a fork, Pisces. Down one path lies a tumultuous obsessionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a compulsive, tormented hunt like Captain Ahabâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pursuit of Moby Dick. In the other direction, a graceful chase beckons, more in the manner of Sir Galahadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pure-hearted search for the Holy Grail. Choose one fork and your quarry will be beastly, impossible and frustrating. If you choose the other fork, your quarry will be magical, earthy and transformative.

Season changes are a good time to accomplish tasks we need to do so we can get into the next season in an organized manner, with more free time to enjoy it. Here are 10 maintenance tips to get done by the end of October. The best way to get things done is to put them on an annual calendar. Put target dates for the below tasks there too, spreading them out and try to make them fun and enjoyable. In the next column we will tackle home maintenance featuring a guest writer "Mr. Maintenance". > • Tip 1. Battery check. A good time to check batteries in flashlights and in smoke detectors is on daylight savings when clock batteries can also be checked. Don't forget portable radios. Buy extra batteries.

• Tip 3. Photos. Take this opportunity to store and organize your summer photos or start that album you are always planning to do. This is a perfect time to send photos, perhaps by email to friends and relatives. Delete digitals you don't want.

FALL IS IN THE AIR

• Tip 9. If you haven't had an annual physical check up yet this year, schedule one now. • Tip 10. Most importantly, if you don't own a home consider buying one now. Very flexible financial rates could make it possible. If you are already a home owner, more is sometimes better!
