There are a dozen restaurants within a couple hundred feet of the Onyx, many of them award winning. Enjoyed vegan pasties at Cornish Pasties and vegan Thai at Komol.

We had dinner at The Cornish Pasty restaurant across the parking lot from the Onyx Theater. The food was very reasonably priced and delicious! Lots of vegan/vegetarian options.

Trying to help him navigate Hollywood’s choppy waters, the devilish Diane is doing all she can to keep Mitchell away from the cute rent boy who’s caught his eye and the rent boy’s girlfriend (wait, the rent boy has a girlfriend?), who has her own delicate predicament to deal with. Will love conquer all? Find out in this sexy comedy about what happens when who you are gets in the way of what, and who, you want.
