The entrees are healthier and less Tex than Mex by SA standards, but the chips and salsa outshine the main menu. Don't skip dessert, though, even if the only veggie you ate was salsa. Vegetarian entree options available. -- Clint Hale (11/08)

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) Not to worry: If ever there were someone not qualified to opine on matters biblical, 'twould be I. But the preceding verse is burned into my mind by virtue of its posting on the wall of the group cycling room at the Downtown YMCA - where another kind of burning also goes on - that of the calories implied by this article and all others past and future. It's also especially appropriate to the Leap of Faith Café, located in the basement of Travis Park United Methodist Church. Connie Marshall, the café's congenial owner/hostess/guiding light, abandoned her two popular Seasons Café and Bakery locations for a subterranean site, which, in spite of exposed limestone walls, track lighting, and displays of art (affecting portraits of homeless people comprise the current show), still seems very much the church basement it is - with long, communal tables covered with oilcloth. There is more at work here than marketing, and a certain amount of faith is required of the first-time diner; a sandwich board at the street level is the only overt indication of the café's location. It's the only evidence of things not (yet) seen. - Ron Bechtol
Housed in a defunct Denny's, Lulu's is about comfort food, wi-fi, and late-night eats: platefuls of chicken-fried steak, and, for bad cases of bottle flu, greasy omelettes slathered in fresh salsa.
The Milam Building at Travis and Soledad was erected in 1928, just in time for the Recession, a small setback that didn't deter it from becoming the center of the then-known oil universe. The Milam was also the first fully air-conditioned building in the world. Hold up your hand if you knew that. Although the oil industry has long since moved on to power centers in other cities, the Milam, with its classically detailed spit-and-polish lobby, still retains an air of burnished respectability. You half expect to see tenant remnants of the building's heyday walking the corridors - and perhaps you do. One friend, whose father had an office in the building, remembers eating there as a kid, not however, at the '30s-era prices: Roast Prime Rib of Fancy Northern Beef au jus topped that list at 22 cents. - Ron Bechtol

Sutan Amrull learned how to apply makeup from “his 14-year-old friend Eva, who was under house arrest for breaking into a restaurant.” Those lessons paid off: In addition to a client list that includes Dita Von Teese and Adam Lambert, Amrull served as makeup artist for nine cycles of America’s Next Top Model, impersonating Tyra Banks on occasion. Adopting the alter ego Raja Gemini, Amrull competed on the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, joining the Heathers (a clique that Gawker noted “perfected the mean girl skill of making others feel like shit”) and becoming the show’s first Asian-American winner. Dubbed the “King of Queens” by LA Weekly, the performer/recording artist lands in SA courtesy of Rey Lopez Entertainment. But be warned: “Stand in her way and Raja will shantay past you like fashion roadkill.”
Venice, Calif., crossover thrash titans Suicidal Tendencies always stood apart. Even after the release of its now-acclaimed, deeply influential self-titled 1983 debut, punks didn’t know what to do with this gangsta-looking bunch of skaters who didn’t sound or dress like anyone else. “All these people told us we needed the proper ‘etiquette’ for the massive punk rock goal being an individual,” founder (and sole remaining original member) Mike Muir quipped in Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal. “I always thought that was a little strange.” Now Muir is back with the first ST album in 13 years, aptly titled 13 (sorry, Ozzy), and still thrashing while no one dares to argue. With Terror, Trash Talk and the Inspector Cluzo.
Penned by Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes at the height of the civil rights movement, Black Nativity employs a predominantly (if not entirely) black cast to the reframe the birth of Christ with poetry, dance, gospel songs and folk spirituals. An expression of Hughes’ late-in-life interest in the oral traditions of the African-American church, the musical debuted in 1961 and is now a holiday tradition for roughly a quarter-million annual viewers. Directed by Danielle King, the Renaissance Guild’s 4th annual production offers theater-goers a unique opportunity to experience Black Nativity in its original form before (or after) heading out to see Kasi Lemmon’s modernized new film starring Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson and Tyrese.
Created in the vein of rock operas like Jesus Christ Superstar, Green Day’s 2004 concept album American Idiot follows fed-up Jesus of Suburbia out of Jingletown and into a gritty city in search of meaning in the post-September 11 era. Thanks to a collaboration between the SoCal punk trio (led by Billie Joe Armstrong) and Spring Awakening director Michael Mayer, American Idiot is now a loud and irreverent Broadway musical, the touring version of which lands at the Majestic this week. Anchored by a theme of rage versus love, the 2010 Tony winner employs all its namesake album’s tracks (plus minimal dialogue and other Green Day hits) to paint what The New York Times described as “a pulsating portrait of wasted youth ... bring on the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll, please!”
Resident DJs Eddie and Danny-D welcome freestyle recording artist Noel in a concert featuring the hit "Silent Morning."
The Wood Brothers band plays blues/Americana as you’ve never heard it before. Brothers Chris (upright bass) and Oliver (guitar), with the recent addition of multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix, are a three-part vocal harmony feast for the ears. The group just released The Muse, its fourth studio album and first as a trio and Nashville-based band. For the first time, they all sang their parts around the same mic, leaving in mistakes and all, which tells you a lot about their aesthetic approach—this is good but muddy stuff. Rix is a show apart: he plays the so-called “shuitar” (pronounced “shitar,” get it?), an old, beat-up guitar turned into a unique drum set. Some classify the Wood Brothers’ music as blues, Americana, folk, etc.; as far as I’m concerned, it’s a top-notch, hip rock ’n’ roll band. Come early to catch Austin bluesman Seth Walker, a master of rootsy subtlety.
