After dropping off the required paperwork in Sacramento on Friday I had time for dinner and a movie before flying home.
Dinner was at On the Border Mexican Grill which, for a chain restaurant, was excellent. I'd eaten at this location once before, but I'd forgotten how good it is. I'll be going back.
In keeping with the theme, I saw "No Country for Old Men," the Coen Brothers modern western. It's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Tommie Lee Jones is perfect as a west Texas Sheriff and Javier Bardem is as creepy as can be as a psychotic murderer.
And some of the side characters -- motel manager, gas station owner, etc -- are so pitch perfect it's amazing.
