Bella Vita, bella inside

The scenesters who filled the interior of the Bella Vita Restaurant and Ultra Lounge last Friday appeared to be enjoying posh cocktails and yummy looking plates — due to my attendance sans date, I was milling awkwardly in a sea of unfamiliar faces. The parking lot alluded to the crowd

Dress for the Prom

In hindsight, my high school prom “dress” was very much like Tinky Winky’s costume on the Telletubies. I should note, first off, that I did not go to prom, as I was not asked, and I am not bitter about that fact. As it turned out, my senior prom night was
