Good food and fun, bargain prices

I first stumbled into Pelon's on a Wednesday night, lured by the promise of $2 tacos and beers. At those prices, I had assumed the place was a hole in the wall, and was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, pleasant interior.

Having spent my teen summers in Virginia Beach surfing, I also felt instantly at home amid the ocean-themed decor. From the ride-the-waves posters lining the walls and the TV displaying non-stop surfing footage, to the foosball table and enormous spools serving as tables, Pelon's is a delight for beach lovers and surfing fans. Reading the menu is part of the entertainment here, as patrons browse burrito choices that include Rip Tide, The Curl, Hawaiian Pipeline and Big Kahuna.

A triumphant return

Explaining the nuts and bolts of Pixar’s new, exciting, innovative Inside Out – really digging into the film’s shape-and-color explanation of the human mind – would take up the entirety of this review. And probably three or four more (if movies had instruction manuals, Inside Out’s would be the size and general poundage of a cinder block).

It’s a complicated movie. So here’s the gist, in as simply-put terms can be.

Fan favorite shines in new West End home

It's been years since I visited the original Kuba Kuba in The Fan; although I liked the food, I was underwhelmed by the dim, cramped space.

Yes, I know neighborhood location and crowds are part of the charm for Fan dwellers, who see the place as cozy rather than claustrophobic. But I was still psyched to hear that a much larger Kuba Kuba Dos had opened in the Tuckahoe Shopping Center. And after two visits, I am pleased to report that the food at Dos is every bit as good as the original's, if not better – and the atmosphere is much more pleasant. I can now savor the goodness without the grittiness, not to mention other patrons bumping up against my elbows as I eat.
