Last year, Storm Large set the Sunset Center on fire when she filled in as the lead singer of Pink Martini. This year she makes a triumphant return with her own band and an eclectic set that shows off her exuberant personality and mesmerizing vocals.

Our friend, Peter L., recently visited Carmel Food Tour. Here is what he had to say about this unique way to enjoy Carmel. Five well-earned stars. Staci has put together about the most informative, fun thing you can do in beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea.
Our three hour tour included some of the best restaurants and wine tasting rooms in the town as well as interesting, informative stops and meanders along the way. I live here and didn’t know any of the historical and anecdotal tid-bits she wove into the tour.

“Beyond Ballet” is their tag line, and they’ve been called “sexy, fun, warm, and awe-inspiring.”
The ever-popular, ever-daring Smuin Ballet performs at Carmel’s Sunset Center March 2 at 8pm and March 3 at 2pm.
The program features a world premiere by choreographer Ma Cong of the Tulsa Ballet, whose French Twist was a smash success in the company’s 2009-2010 season, and three pieces choreographed by Michael Smuin:
• Tango Palace: a seductive fantasy of passion, possession, jealousy, loss, and love. A feverish vision of desire through dance, Tango Palace examines both the complexities of the human heart, and the inventiveness of tango itself.
• The Eternal Idol: in this sensuous pas de deux set to Chopin’s lush Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Minor, Rodin’s famous sculpture of a nude couple locked in an embrace comes to life on stage.
• Stabat Mater: an eloquent expression of grief and loss set to Dvorak’s choral work, this ballet was Michael Smuin’s response to September 11th. It has been called “a powerful response to a national tragedy,” and one of the most beautiful ballets in his remarkable career.
