Thinking about Twilight, Downtown’s Golden Gate and more

    • Missing cocktail

      Have you visited Downtown’s Golden Gate recently? Renovations to the valet, casino and lobby turned out pretty spiffy. But if they don’t find a home for the iconic shrimp cocktail bar, I’ll have to boycott. —Brock Radke, web & food editor

    • Gold tune

      Bieber Fever’s back after two weeks of Olympics Fever, but one record endures: American Idol winner Phillip Phillips’ “Home,” the tune of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team. It’s the best Idol coronation song in years. —Don Chareunsy, contributing editor

    • Time is money

      I’m driving west on Sunset and I see a car with a sign that reads, “CASH FOR TIME.” Question: Do they mean “work”? —Rick Lax, staff writer

    • Reality bites

      Bad choice by the promoters of Twilight: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 in putting the word “Forever” on the posters. I’ll be amazed if the film’s co-stars are even in the same room together during the promotional tour. —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • Miller mayhem

      Former UFC fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller was arrested Monday for allegedly vandalizing a church. Police found him naked, chilling on a couch. I, for one, would really like to know what he said when they woke him up. —Erin Ryan, staff writer
