We watch as Peck — the only member of this troupe’s corps de ballet (bottom of the ballet food chain) to leap straight into choreographing new works — creates the classical-style “Paz de la Jolla” (set to music from Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu’s “Sinfonietta La Jolla”). We look in on rehearsals, overhear conversations between dancers, see them practice and discuss movements, see costumes proposed and then produced and watch the lighting designer figure out how to create the desired effects.

So many restaurants, so little time! January is California Restaurant Month and cities from Benicia to Gilroy are rolling out the red carpet with prix-fixe menus and special deals to encourage locals to dine out during what’s normally a pretty sleepy, post-holiday spell. This is the perfect weekend to take them up on their offer. Here’s just a sampling of tasty possibilities. In the chaos immediately following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, 7,000 airline passengers were forced to take temporary refuge in tiny Gander, Newfoundland, whose residents welcomed the visitors with open arms. Their extraordinary generosity inspired the hit Broadway musical “Come From Away,” which is now playing at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Theatre. Here’s what you need to know before heading out to see this heartwarming show. And here’s what our reviewer said about it.

Standring has always infused his jazz sound with healthy helpings of funk and soul. On his latest album, “Don’t Talk, Dance!,” he pays even greater attention to the groove. Backed by some of L.A.’s finest musicians, and featuring a guest appearance from vocalist Lauren Christy, the record is captivating from start to finish. He not only played on the album, but also composed, arranged and produced it. He has another new album due next spring. Each record takes Standring into new musical territory.
