Headed into Bethesda tonight, ate at the Shanghai Village. This is the Chinese place next to Louisiana Express, and let me say, very tasty. Operative X, you're on notice that we'll be eating here next time we venture to Le Landmark. Though, general note for all, the crispy beef is very crispy, if you're into that sort of thing. But seriously, not the best Chinese I know of in the area, but pretty dang good.

Afterwards, Landmark for Garden State, which is the second or third best movie I have seen this year. Great script, good stars, funny, poignant, etc. Go see it, thank me later. Zach Braff is a much better director/writer than I would have thought. And the best news is, if this movie takes off, they might keep Scrubs around longer!

As a side note, the movie is a complete condemnation of both George Lucas and Hayden Christensen, because Natalie Portman acted the shit out of the movie. Seriously, this is what she is capable of with a good director, a good script and good co-stars.

Attention Regent (and others interested):
Joel Achenbach will be at the Borders in Bethesda discussing his new book The Grand Idea on Thursday, August 26th, at 7:30 pm.
