Kentro Greek Kitchen and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

I'm back in Fullerton to see Santa Claus Conquers the Martians at the Maverick Theater (see November's post about Plan 9 from Outer Space, also at the Maverick), and I'm needing some dinner before getting my laughs on again.

On the other side of the tracks–the Maverick Theater sits by the Fullerton Metrolink station–is the delicious Kentro Greek Restaurant. Above you see their Beet Salad (with figs, manouri cheese and walnut vinaigrette), and the Braised Lamb Pita with fries. Wow! The flavors were amazing. I quickly scarfed it all down before heading back to see SCCTM.

If you don't know this flick (hooray for Santy Claus!), it is the arguably the worst Christmas movie ever made about Martians kidnapping Santa to bring joy to the green kiddies. The Maverick crew did another hilarious spin on a bad movie with this live production. Improvisations and audience participation had us all laughing from the get-go. The show has created quite the cult following, and people see it over and over again. The guy seated beside me shared that this is his sixth season of seeing the production, and he was coming back next week to catch it again. Here you see the cast with some audience members posing for Christmas pictures. Who wants to go with me next year?!
