Coraline in the tunnel

I don’t see a lot of movies, but last night, since I work tonight for Valentine’s Day, Mike and I went on a movie date.

We first had dinner at the Laotian/Thai restaurant called Boualouang. I haven’t Southeast Asian cuisine in over a year, and Boualouang was a great place to break the fast. We had a green curry and lahp (a Laos style meat salad) with sticky rice. I can’t wait to go back to this tiny treasure and try their pad thai. It’s extremely authentic and the food is delicious and spicy.

Dinner took a lot less time than we thought. With only six tables, we were prepared to wait, but were seated and served in short order. With time to burn before the 10:15 movie, we decided to have drinks at Vintage Lounge on 124 Street.

My “French Momo” martini was good, but it is overall kind of a forgettable place. They are having some sort of insane all-you-can-drink speed dating night for singles tonight which sounded interesting, if messy on a number of levels.

Then we saw Coraline…IN 3-D. It is a simple, short-ish film with amazing rich visuals only enhanced further by the 3-Dness. Go, see it now and make sure it’s the 3-D version. I’ll be here when you get back.
