The Dining Divas
I’m always excited when we find a new restaurant that’s delicious, down to earth, and affordable, and the Dining Divas discovered another in the U-City loop area at Salt and Smoke. The sign out front says it’s barbecue, beer, and bourbon, and that means…it’s good eating.

It was a pleasant spring evening. You know the kind. Jacket weather. Not quite warm enough for flip flops but warm enough to question wearing boots. The pollen hadn’t started to attack yet. The bees and flies were still south for the winter. And the sunset was such a lovely site. That’s what I remember thinking walking into the Dining Diva destination for this past month. What a wonderful night!

As I make my predictions for who with win and who won’t in office pools, in social media forums, at the party, and privately during the Oscars’ telecast, I am always conscious of three factors in Oscar prediction that make it more a game of chance than an intellectual pursuit. The first challenge is that I have my favored and loathed among the nominations, which influences my guesses. Second, although the actual quality of one film above the other requires comparing apples to oranges, the nominees and the winners reflect only the majority opinion of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences members. The third challenge to predicting the winners is more complicated. The personal and business politics of who wins and the studios’ massive advertising campaigns both influence, or not, the voting of the Academy.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
