Eat Me: Sundown at Granada’s Scallops

DSC01464by Steven Doyle

Pretty much everything from the kitchen at the Sundown at the Granada is a home run, including this beautiful plate of seared scallops.

Tomorrow we interview Patrick Stark, the rock and roll chef from the Sundown, and find out what he has been up to (besides plenty of television), and what he has planned for the near future at Sundown.

British Insect Invasion: Adam Ant Can Stand and Deliver a Knockout Show

By Jeanine Stevens

It was 1984 reincarnated—well almost—as Adam Ant took the stage at the Granada after almost 30 years of mayhem and (in some cases) psychiatric madness. The of over 1,000 was ready to party: Antfans, some wildly dressed, hardly skipped a pogo beat as the Prince Charming pirate played 28 rocking songs including such crowd-pleasers as “Vive Le Rock” and “Goody Two Shoes.”

Bespectacled, still trim and dressed in his dandy Hussar jacket and high black feathered hat (alas, no white stripe across his cheeks and nose), the former Stewart Goddard looked like Johnny Depp meets King of the Wild Frontier.  Continue reading
