“No Regrets” ROCKS!


If you hear an explosion, without a doubt it’s from the Liberty Village area!

I just had the best Chicken Pesto Flatbread and Goat Cheese Salad with Marj, at No Regrets lounge… My favorite café in the area… Thank god my break was not long enough; otherwise, I would have gone for the second order!

If you are in the area, don’t miss on them or you will regret it!

Personal regards,


“Pleasure is something that you feel that you should really enjoy, which is really virtuous, but you don’t; and sin is something that you’re quite sure you shouldn’t enjoy but you do.”

— Ralph Wightman on BBC Radio, 1961

  2. Half Moon Directed by Bahman Ghobadi
  3. Mainline Directed by Rakhshan Bani-Etemad & Mohsen Abdolvahab
  4. Offside Directed by Jafar Panahi

The dates are yet to be announced… Hopefully will get to see few of them… Especially #3, from my favorite directors.

Will be sharing more soon… Till then, bon soir!
