  • Crenn: Working the dining room.
On Wednesday, two Michelin-starred chefs are teaming up for a six-course Tuscan dinner at Luce in the InterContinental Hotel (888 Howard at Fifth St.). Luce chef Dominique Crenn is collaborating with Donatella Zampoli, exec chef for the wine estates of Marchesi de' Frescobaldi. Dinners' served from 5:30 p.m. on, though it's not an affair with formal seatings, but rather a drop-in-and-eat-when-you-like dealio. Menu highlights include duck breast with Parmesan risotto and gnocchi with bone marrow and lobster.

The two chefs are friends, and plan to be in the dining room for co-shmoozing. Dinner is $75 -- $105 with wine pairings from Frescobaldi. A portion of the sales benefit CUESA. For rezzies, call 616-6566, or reserve at Open Table.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.

Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
