Continuing my lifelong avoidance of the Super Bowl, I spent Sunday afternoon 1) eating lunch outdoors at The Habit in La Verne, reading the LAT Travel piece on a car trip up the California coast, 2) catching a matinee of “Last Chance Harvey,” the Dustin Hoffman/Emma Thompson romance, at the La Verne Edwards, which drew a good crowd of middle-agers and seniors, 3) mopping my floors and 4) reading from a Harlan Ellison story collection at the Coffee Bean in Claremont, which was at half-capacity, unusually.
I hear the Steelers won. Whatever.
Incidentally, “Last Chance Harvey,” while not brilliant, was charming, as long as you can accept the lovely Emma Thompson as unattached and lonely. The movie is down to two showings per day, and is playing at only this one theater, so anyone so inclined is encouraged to zip over there before Friday.
How did you spend your Super Bowl Sunday?
