We will have two undocumented immigrants arriving at our home tomorrow night. They will spend a large part of the next three weeks with us. They will travel across our border by air and pass through our Customs, but they come from an unfriendly country called France and have been known to speak unkindly of our president, sentiments they may express while in our custody. I have warned them to avoid upsetting the enforcers of the Patriot Act, which could lead to Guantanamo Bay, as well as any encounters with local law because our mayor is protecting us by exposing illegals accused of serious crime.

Remember back in spring 2003 when many Americans were so upset with the French for not supporting the invasion of Iraq that several restaurateurs, including the cafeteria for Congress, decided to rename French fries “freedom fries?” My, how times change. Arches restaurant owner Dan Marcheano seems to be so taken with French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s work as a global mediator (from the Russian-Georgian conflict to now the Middle East violence) that “freakin’ fries” are off the menu at the Arches and it’s back to French fries.

Stephen Santacroce As a restaurant critic, I'm always asked what my favorite restaurant is. It's a question that's more difficult to answer than one might think, because dining depends a lot on the mood I'm in, the environment I'm looking for and what kind of food I want. I witnessed incredulous stares from friends who can't believe I liked a certain place, and angry calls from others when I criticized one of their favorites. Nevertheless, there are a handful of restaurants in our area that stand out above the competition.

Taiko drummers, children dancing to traditional Mexican folk songs, and a French plein air painter will all be a part of the giant melting pot Sunday at the Newport Beach Sister City International Festival. The free event will celebrate Newport’s relationship with the cities of Antibes, France, Okazaki, Japan, and Ensenada, Mexico. “It’s going to be like an old-fashioned family day in the park,” said event organizer Connie Skibba, who has been a part of the Newport Beach Sister City Assn.
