DIVINE FOOD — Fellini Restaurant, at 1404 University at Acton, officially closed on Sunday October 30, but Italian food lovers will be happy to learn that Marco Polo Garbarino will be reopening the space in December. His new restaurant will be called Divino and will serve Italian cuisine with an emphasis on food from the Liguria region of the Italian Riviera. The menu will include local and organic ingredients, as well as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. [Hat-tip: “Berkeley resident”]
On Tuesday, October 11th, at about 4:00 pm, a power outage in Berkeley shut down the downtown BART station and disabled the city’s computer system, which meant services and documents for elected officials, city agency staff, and city residents were inaccessible for several hours.
It’s fairly obvious from the get-go where Aki Kaurismaki’s new film Le Havre (opening at Landmark’s Shattuck Cinemas this Friday) is going — viewers conversant in the language of cinema will probably divine its narrative direction before the end of the second reel. That doesn’t mean the journey isn’t worth taking, however: for all its predictability, Kaurismaki’s latest feature is a near flawless example of how to tell a story on film.
