    Man About Town: Our view of the cosmos from an L.A. hilltop
    Do I turn you on to cool stuff or what? Last week, a great shave. This week, the cosmos. There isn't really anyplace I won't take you. OK, I won't take you to Chuck E. Cheese's — that'd just be cruel, pepperoni in the very corpuscles of the place....

    Zac Efron's 'Lucky One' could unseat 'Hunger Games'

     
    Zac Efron's "The Lucky One" could beat "The Hunger Games" at the box office next weekend. Unless "Think Like a Man, "the movie based on the Steve Harvey book, does it.
