I was a little hesitant about the latest restaurant of choice for the Dining Divas. First, they don’t take reservations. Second, every time I’ve driven by, there’s been a line outside the door. And finally, their specialty is fried chicken, and the last time we went to a place like that, I heard more complaints than compliments from the Divas. They couldn’t seem to be able to accept the restaurant’s chicken and sides’ prices compared to a place like KFC!

Director Dan Trachtenberg’s 10 Cloverfield Lane, a sequel in name only and perhaps it being the same alien invasion, provides entirely different thrills and chills than the original Cloverfield. Huge fans of the original Cloverfield’s handheld realism will be disappointed, but if handheld camera work causes queasiness, 10 Cloverfield Lane will delight — in a spine-chilling sort of way.

In Disney’s latest animated film, Zootopia, an anthropomorphic world exists, and all animals, predators and prey, live in perfect harmony. Despite all this inter-species harmony, a bunny girl, namely Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin), must struggle against stereotyping to become the first bunny police officer.

It doesn’t happen often. The Dining Divas returned to a location that we’d been to before. But now it is a different restaurant. This happened before at a restaurant in St. Charles. And there was one in Alton. And now another one we discovered, in the St. Louis Hills neighborhood. Sometimes you wonder if it’s the restaurant or the location that doesn’t work.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
