While I may not be as busy as I was while Dark Matter was in production, I find myself surprisingly busy for someone without a show to run. Most of my days are spent reading comic books and reviewing anime…for work! In addition, I’ve got a little over a half dozen “things” percolating, from being hired to co-develop and write the pilot for a new sci-fi project to angling on four different book-to-screen adaptations. Throw in a couple of very intriguing showrunning opportunities and let’s call it a year. Decisions, decisions. Cannot wait to share the details – and head back into production.
No, scratch that. I can wait a little longer. Enjoying the first real vacation I’ve had in…oh, about 20 years.
Being suddenly free for lunch and dinners has given me the opportunity to enjoy – well, what else? – more lunches and dinners. Recently, we hit up our favorite place for tapas, Bar Raval, with our friend Nicole Tsang (who took all of the following snaps).
The happy (albeit slightly suspicious) couple.
Order from the menu, but always check out the bar for the daily additions.
Akemi’s favorite – the torta (which is like an Italian frittata and all sorts of delicious).
From their conserva section: mackerel and scallops.
Crispy eggplant with honey.
And, for dessert, one of everything – as is the custom! Well, the custom when you’re dining with yours truly.
If you’re in town, check it out!
Okay, back to the graphic novels!
