    Local Theaters Celebrate Christmas, New Year's and More!

    Theatre Out Celebrates the Homodays With Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart, But the Very Next Day You Said You Were Gay

    'Elizabeth Turk: Sentient Forms' Swirls Around the Laguna Art Museum

    The visual trigger that creates a painting, the nagging thought that becomes a poem, the aria that begins with a musical note, the news article that becomes a film . . . all art has its beginning with some unruly sense impression. Few local artists ...

    Trendzilla: Tin & Velvet's Not Your Usual Mom Store

    At first glance, Tin & Velvet seems as if it belongs next to Brighton, Things Remembered or some other kitschy mom store. The name and slogan (A Shop of Delight) implies miniature garden bicycles or charm bracelets. But if that were the case, Tin & ...

    Trendzilla: Your Skin vs. the Santa Anas

    The Santa Ana winds can go fuuuck themselves. Healthy, supple skin has a slightly acidic pH level, and when it becomes too basic, it feels scratchy. But taking a "refreshing" shower can be the most detrimental form of relief. Tap water tends to have...
