The sauce is gravy-like and the chicken is tender. It doesn’t come with rice, but it’s wise to order some to accompany the chicken. Off the noodle menu, I ordered the Singapore Bee Hoon ($8.95). This dish centers around small, thin noodles, chicken, shrimp and flavors reminiscent of China. It is smooth and addictive. Off the beef menu I tried the coffee short ribs ($13.95), which isn’t a Malaysian dish at all, but rather one of the chef’s specialties. Short ribs in general aren’t particularly common in Malaysia. The sweet and tangy barbecue chicken tasted like it could be served at a Chinese fast food eatery, and the subtle blending of coffee gave it an odd but delectable flavor. Shaved ice is the highlight off the dessert menu. This is actually a Taiwanese dessert, not Malaysian. The mango shaved ice ($4.50) is a good place to start. It’s served with ice shavings and fresh mango slices, sugar and milk. It is a no-nonsense crowd pleaser.—Aaron Carnes MANGO GARDEN 6154 Bollinger Road, San Jose. 408.446.4440

more Latin jazz and salsa than any festival in the West. In 2013 we’re presenting major Latin jazz artists on stages throughout the festival. Highlights include Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra; MacArthur “genius” grant recipient Dafnis Prieto; Brazil’s Transcendental Ensemble;

Every year, Summer Fest features

FOCUS ON LATIN JAZZ & SALSA

This year, we’ve upgraded the roster at the San Jose Rep Stage to include even more world-renowned artists. A special wristband is required to enter this stage (see back cover). We’ve added Jazz+ concerts that allow you to see some of Summer Fest’s brightest stars a second time in intimate club settings. The YP Blues Stage and the new Big Easy Stage will be located together near the heart of the action, on leafy Post Street.

The lineup on the Kaiser Permanente Salsa Stage will transport you to three major centers of salsa culture. On Friday, you’ll experience the New York salsa dura sound of Louis Romero’s Mazacote and the Josh Jones Ensemble performing a tribute to Ray Baretto. Saturday, it’s Puerto Rico with Edgardo & Candela and Orquesta Saboricua, playing Puerto Rican-influenced New York salsa. Saturday’s closer Ricardo Lemvo combines classic salsa with pan-African styles. On Sunday we travel to Cuba, birthplace of son, rumba and the contemporary timba, headlined by Cuba’s greatest dance band, Wil Campa Y Su Gran Union. While the styles may differ, every band plays exciting, danceable music, so get out there!

SIMPLY PUT Artwork by Mr. Jeremiah Harada

DON’T FRET Guitarist Steve Lin performs for the Aug 2 Lunchtime@Trianon concert.

Lunch Break There aren’t many churches that have been built to resemble a royal mistress’ dwelling. But that’s how downtown San Jose’s Le Petit Trianon theater began its existence—as a church, with architecture patterned after Madame de Pompadour’s house at Versailles. In its origins, as well as in its current incarnation as a theater and office complex for small arts groups, the Trianon seems unique.

Guitarist Lin focuses on outreach for audiences new to classical guitar. Lin’s program is designed to introduce the breadth of classical guitar. “I’m playing two Bach arrangements, and I’m playing Taiwanese folk music arranged by a friend. There’s also Argentine tangos. It shows off the guitar in different ways, adapting music from old music,” Lin says. Lunchtime@Trianon launched in May and each month has offered performances by some of the theater’s regular users, who are mostly smallerbudget musical organizations, drawn to the acoustics of the Trianon’s concert hall and its manageable, 340-seat house. Although the need for visibility among smaller arts groups is ever-present, there’s urgency behind such efforts at the Trianon. The theater has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy for a little more than a year. Le Petit Trianon owner Keith Watt says the building is worth $4 million, but he still owes $2.1 million on the mortgage, which he had to refinance not long after the economy bottomed out in 2007. Watt has operated the theater for 30 years. He’s exploring several different options. Le Petit Trianon has been up for sale since summer 2012, but no buyers have come forward, and Watt expresses the concern that most buyers would be unlikely to keep Le Petit Trianon as a theater. “I guess churches converted into theaters are not a good thing to deal with,” he says, though he jokes this experience may help him find religion again.—Heather Zimmerman

TERMS AND CCONDITIONS TERMS ONDITIONS MA MAY AY APPLY APPL LY

ARENDT SWAYED Hannah Arendt (Barbara Sukowa) attends the trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann. As she reported on the trial, Arendt coined the phrase ‘the banality of evil.’

Trial Separation Marguerite von Trotta’s Hannah Arendt is the only film you’ll see this summer with the noted philosopher/historian playing “truth or dare” billiards with Mary McCarthy (played by Janet McTeer, trying some strong-arm scene stealing). It’s the first time in a long while that the movies have revisited the Eichmann trial. This, even though the war criminal’s glass booth haunts our epics, in the form of the clear bulletproof cells in which many super-villains are caged: Dr. Lecter, Magneto, Loki, Silva and the rest. This biopic follows a turning point in the career of Arendt (Barbara Sukowa) who travelled at the New Yorker’s behest to observe the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem in 1961. Arendt was a German who fled with her husband in 1933. She claimed had never even seen a Nazi in the flesh: not quite true, since she was taught by one, her mentor and perhaps lover Martin Heidegger, played by Klaus Pohl. Not to steal the thunder of her book Eichmann in Jersualem, but Arendt’s breakthrough was deducing that even if the SS Lieutenant-Colonel was the living representative of a nightmare, he was also a consummate bureaucrat. He was “no Mephistopheles,” she says, during the musings that led to Arendt’s irreplaceable four-word description of the spirit of the Nazis’ rule.

As do today’s war criminals, Eichmann used passive sentences: the slippery “one” when describing how he conducted his obscene duties. But he was all too human, griping about the inconvenience of the trial, wearing a wry half-smirk at Hannah Arendt the indignity of the questions, wiping his Not rated; leaking nose with a 109 min. hanky. Opens Fri. The mirror of this bland monster is a humane, lovable, brave woman of middle age facing the pressure from the middle-brow New Yorkers she knows. She refuses to cast Eichmann’s life as a common study of evil in the realm of good. And she also refuses to ignore the shame of Jewish collaboration with the Nazis. For the most part, Sukowa’s inner strength conquers the problem of a bio-pic about a person who vegetates on sofas, smokes cigarettes and stares at the ceiling. The script may have carved up too much history to chew, though— there are numerous “as you know, Bob”-isms to keep the viewer up to speed in ’60s politics, as well as scene-changing lines of great unfortunateness: “Israel has aged faster than you, my little Hannah.” Richard von Busack

By ROB BREZSNY week of July 31

ARIES (March 21-April 19): To add zest to mealtime, you might choose food that has been seasoned with red chili peppers, cumin, or other piquant flavors. Some chimpanzees have a similar inclination, which is why they like to snack on red fire ants. Judging from the astrological omens, I’m guessing you are currently in a phase when your attraction to spicy things is at a peak—not just for dinner but in other areas of your life, as well. I have a suggestion: Pursue rowdy fun with adventures that have metaphorical resemblances to red chili peppers, but stay away from those that are like red fire ants.

skateboarding tricks is called the 1080. To pull it off, a skateboarder has to do three complete 360-degree revolutions in mid-air and land cleanly. No one had ever pulled it off until 12-year-old Tom Schaar did it in 2012. Since then, two other teenage boys have managed the same feat. But I predict that a Scorpio skateboarder will break the record sometime soon, managing a 1260, or three and a half full revolutions. Why? First, because your tribe is unusually geared to accomplish peak performances right now. And second, you have a knack for doing complex maneuvers that require a lot of concentration.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The 19th-century English artist John Constable specialized in painting landscapes. The countryside near his home especially excited him. He said, “The sound of water escaping from mill dams, willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts, and brickwork, I love such things. They made me a painter, and I am grateful.” Take a cue from Constable, Taurus. Spend quality time appreciating the simple scenes and earthy pleasures that nourish your creative spirit. Give your senses the joy of getting filled up with vivid impressions. Immerse yourself in experiences that thrill your animal intelligence.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Can you think of ways that you have been colonized? Have any powerful institutions filled up your brain with ideas and desires that aren’t in alignment with your highest values? For instance, has your imagination gotten imprinted with conditioning that makes you worry that your body’s not beautiful enough or your bank account’s not big enough or your style isn’t cool enough? If so, Sagittarius, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to get uncolonized. There has rarely been a better time than now to purge any brainwashing that puts you at odds with your deepest self.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is Grand Unification

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): An old Chinese

Week for you Geminis. If your left hand has been at war with your right hand, it’s a perfect moment to declare a truce. If your head and heart have not been seeing eye to eye, they are ready to find common ground and start conspiring together for your greater glory. Are there any rips or rifts in your life? You will generate good fortune for yourself if you get to work on healing them. Have you been alienated from an ally or at odds with a beloved dream or separated from a valuable resource? You have a lot of power to fix glitches like those.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In an episode of the TV show Twin Peaks, special agent Dale Cooper gives the following advice to his colleague Harry: “I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen.” Now I’m passing on this advice to you, Cancerian. It’s a perfect time for you to try out this fun game. You are in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll be wise to intensify your commitment to self-care . . . and deepen your devotion to making yourself feel good . . . and increase your artistry at providing yourself with everything you need to thrive LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Sergei Diaghilev was a Russian ballet impresario who founded Ballets Russes, one of the 20th century’s great ballet companies. At one point in his career he met French playwright Jean Cocteau. Diaghilev dared Cocteau to write a piece for a future Ballets Russes production. “Astonish me!” he said. It took seven years, but Cocteau met the challenge. He created Parade, a ballet that also featured music by Eric Satie and sets by Pablo Picasso. Now let’s pretend I’m Diaghilev and you’re Cocteau. Imagine that I’ve just told you, “Astonish me!” How will you respond? What surprising beauty will you come up with? What marvels will you unleash? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Since 1948, the chemical known as warfarin has been used as a pesticide to poison rats. Beginning in 1954, it also became a medicine prescribed to treat thrombosis and other blood ailments in humans. Is there anything in your own life that resembles warfarin? A person or an asset or an activity that can either be destructive or constructive, depending on the situation? The time will soon be right for you to employ that metaphorical version of warfarin in both capacities. Make sure you’re very clear about which is which. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “My heart was a hysterical, unreliable organ,” wrote Vladimir Nabokov in his novel Lolita. We have all gone through phases when we could have uttered a similar statement. But I doubt that this is one of those times for you, Libra. On the contrary. I suspect your heart is very smart right now—poised and lucid and gracious. In fact, I suggest you regard the messages coming from your heart as more trustworthy than any other part of you—wiser than your head and your gut and your genitals put together. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The Holy Grail of

poem tells us that “the true measure of a mountain’s greatness is not its height but whether it is charming enough to attract dragons.” You and I know there are no such things as dragons, so we can’t take this literally. But what if we treat it as we might a fairy tale? I suggest we draw a metaphorical meaning from it and apply it to your life. Let’s say that you shouldn’t be impressed with how big and strong anything is; you shouldn’t give your mojo to people or institutions simply because they have worldly power. Rather, you will be best served by aligning yourself with what’s mysterious and fabulous. You’re more likely to have fun and generate good fortune for yourself by seeking out stories that appeal to your soul instead of your ego.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The questions you have been asking aren’t terrible. But they could be formulated better. They might be framed in such a way as to encourage life to give you crisp insights you can really use rather than what you’ve been getting lately, which are fuzzy conjectures that are only partially relevant. Would you like some inspiration? See if any of these inquiries help hone your spirit of inquiry. 1. What kind of teacher or teaching do you need the most right now? 2. What part of you is too tame, and what can you do about it? 3. What could you do to make yourself even more attractive and interesting to people than you already are? 4. What is the pain that potentially has the most power to awaken your dormant intelligence? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “There are some enterprises in which a careful disorderliness is the true method.” So says Ishmael, the hero of Herman Melville’s 19th-century novel Moby Dick. He is ostensibly referring to whale hunting, which is his job, but some modern critics suggest he’s also talking about the art of storytelling. I suspect his statement applies to a certain enterprise you are currently engaged in, as well. Can you wrap your mind and heart around the phrase “careful disorderliness,” Pisces? I hope so, because I think it’s the true method. Here are some other terms to describe it: benevolent chaos; strategic messiness; purposeful improvisation; playful experiments. Homework: Compose a love spell to get more of the intimate connection you want, but without manipulating anyone’s free will. Tell me about it at gy Freewillastrology.com.
