Venue: Staley Wise
Food: Nha Trang
Drink: Naked Lunch
Miscellaneous: La Esquina

Former model and current fashion photographer, Ellen von Unwerth photographs girls in various states of naughty to nice, with sex being the topic. There’s plenty of humor, romance, erotica, and fantasy that teases the viewer and captures the female not as the object but as the provocateur of lust. 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.
