The Daily Shortlist April 29
From the pages of Marvel comics to the silver screen, Wolverine has become more than just a superhero in the Marvel Universe, he’s an icon. Join comic book writers Chris Claremont, who worked on Marvel Comics X-Men series and Matthew K. Manning, who has written for many comics in both the Marvel and DC universes, as they discuss Wolverine and the making of DK Publishing’s Wolverine: Inside the World of the Living Weapon. Book signing and reception to follow. One of the best affordable Vietnamese restaurants in the city, Nha Trang is right near the downtown courthouse, making it a high volume place. Despite that, the food is great and the Pho (rice noodle soup) dishes are $5 and under. Named after William S. Burroughs novel, Naked Lunch is a cool and comfortable bar where local artists usually gather. No shooting up though! One of the best taqueria’s in the city, the Mexican food at La Esquina is authentic and to die for. While tacos will set you back $3, plates are in the $6 to $7.25 range.
