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 play is a MUST SEE. You will be amazed by the puppetry and how they bring the horses to life. This is the 2nd time I see it and I would go again.

The play was mesmerizing. There are three puppeteers that control the little Joey and the grown up Joey (the War Horse). Within a couple of minutes, they disappear in that you don't notice them anymore - as I was transifxed on the movement and...continued

Very impressed with the creativity it took to stage such an "impossible" movement of film to stage. You forgot the horses were puppets. I am happy I saw the film first because I could fill in the gaps and assumptions in the staging. Loved the play!
