    Avocado smoothie: When it comes to pho, Tank Noodle casts a long shadow in Uptown. The sprawling restaurant boasts bigger dining space and longer lines than its nearby counterparts, and with good reason: Its pho is excellent. But Tank Noodle's menu still harbors a well-kept secret (and it's one of the staff's favorites): the avocado smoothie. This smoothie is the closest one might get to a butter milkshake: It's rich and rife with those deliciously creamy, fatty avocado oils. Tank Noodle handles the Vietnamese tradition of avocado-as-dessert with characteristic decadence, mixing Haas avocados with sugar and half-and-half to arrive at a lush, pudding-like treat. The drink is mild in flavor and not too sweet, yet still redolent of the lush fruit. Chewy tapioca balls add texture to the impossibly thick, creamy consistency. A few colorful chunks of melon top the pastel green beverage and refresh the palette. The $4.50 smoothie is nourishing and filling enough to be a meal in itself, while doing double-duty as dessert. 4953 N. Broadway, 773-878-2253773-878-2253

    Dr. Steve Brule, Tim & Eric comic forces to be reckoned with
    What did you do this past weekend? Chances are it didn't equal the drama spawned by a few men over two chaotic hours of sketch comedy Friday at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Dr. Steve Brule, the crooked-spectacled, mush-mouthed...

    L.A. Opera opens season with flat, clumsy 'La Traviata'

    L.A. Opera opens season with flat, clumsy 'La Traviata'
    Los Angeles Opera is almost back. Not that it has gone anywhere. But after having been one of the country's most progressive companies last decade, it had to put much of its imagination on hold in its past four conventional seasons. There was an...
