Typhoon is this cool little restaurant at the Santa Monica Airport that serves funky dishes like deep-fried whole catfish, Singapore-Style Scorpions and Taiwanese Crickets. I tried them all — after several glasses of wine. They were delicious.
While I was there I caught the Tim Davies Big Band. Now, I’ve never been one for big bands — I think the last big concert I went to was Huey Lewis — but I am starting to think big bands are the type of thing you have to see live to appreciate, because it was unexpectedly fun.
