With your Escape editor Jim Walker last week offering up his "tasty" experiences in the SCV, it seems only fitting that the other two Escape "foodies" need a nod. So, this week, here are excerpts from the other restaurant profiles done in 2009 by Michelle Sathe and Michele Buttelman.

"It's Complicated" is perfectly plausible if you are only willing to believe that Meryl Streep sells a whole lot of muffins. She plays a bakery and restaurant owner who lives in a sprawling hacienda on a bluff overlooking the Pacific in Santa Barbara, set on grounds approached by a sweeping circular drive. I've been to Oprah's place, which is only a little nicer. Life is sweet, although she hires an architect to give her a new kitchen. Her current one tragically has only two ovens.
My problem may be that I know Fellini's "8 1/2" too well. Your problem may be that you don't know it well enough. Both of us may be asking, who exactly was "Nine" made for? This is a big-scale version of the 1982 Broadway production, which won the Tony as best musical. It's likely that most who saw it had either seen the Fellini or made that their business.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police in Miami Beach say pop singer Justin Bieber has been charged with resisting arrest without violence in addition to drag racing and DUI. Police also say the singer told authorities he had consumed alcohol, smoked marijuana and taken prescription drugs.

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.
