I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

This was an amazing ballet.....great story, great dancing, great costumes...Boris Eifman is brilliant, and I can't wait to see more of his ballets. The Tier 3 tickets were great for my young daughter since she had enough room around us to dance...continued

The Eifman Ballet is always worth the wait. The imaginative choreography of Eifman's contemporary productions and the exceptional talent of the performers is a must see.

Description

For its sixth visit to Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg will give the Southern California premiere of the company’s riveting Don Quixote. Artistic Director and Choreographer Boris Eifman has added new twists and inventive takes to Don Quixote, which is based on an episode from Cervantes’ novel Don Quixote de la Mancha. Using classical ballet infused with the spirit of contemporary choreography, Eifman creates compellingly original dance dramas. The Los Angeles Times calls his creations “dynamic, theatrical, visionary works that delve into characters’ lives in the most exciting, probing, titillating, and wondrous ways.”
