Digital City Writing Samples
These are samples I wrote for America Online's Digital City site, which covers regional entertainment, restaurants, and news.
Family-style Mexican dishes, cheerful service, and enormous portions are what bring people back to "Paco's Tacos" in Westchester. It's not gourmet, and probably not authentic, but this restaurant's fare will hit the spot when you crave comfort food. Try the chile verde--tender chunks of pork in a mild tomatillo sauce. Complete your meal with fresh tortillas made on the premises and a cold cerveza. Paco's Tacos is located at 8329 Lincoln Boulevard, and is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
There are no dinosaurs at the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City, but if you visit you'll find yourself having an experience like no other. An unassuming building in a strip mall, the museum is in truth a meditation on the meaning of museums, the joy of wonder, and one man's obsession with the strange. The Museum is open Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. Visit their Web site at www.mjt.org for a taste.
