Unlike the gaudy kitsch of nightspots such as Hollywood's Lava Lounge or the Tiki Ti in Silver Lake, Beverly Hills' Trader Vic's manages to be swanky and sophisticated while still retaining a colorful, Polynesian vibe, complete with big, froufrou drinks and island-style decor. So it's a little surprising that the upscale restaurant is lounge king Richard Cheese's favorite hangout.

A couple of weeks ago, the place to be in Vegas was the Joint at the Hard Rock. There were women in evening gowns with feathered boas and their gentlemen companions in dinner jackets. There was even a fellow in a mohair suit. But this wasn't George Clooney's idea of reviving the elegance of the old Vegas Rat Pack; many of these revelers were proudly pierced and tattooed. These were all members of the die-hard following that attend every Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine show here.

Now that Rage Against the Machine is minus a lead singer, maybe it should consider Richard Cheese as a replacement. He's charismatic, he's got a strong set of pipes and he definitely knows the material. Of course it would mean a slight change of direction for the hard-rocking Rage. Cheese is a lounge lizard who sings modern-rock ditties in his own swanky style on the new album "Lounge Against the Machine."

Oozing charisma in a tiger-striped tuxedo and armed with a repertoire longer than the Las Vegas Strip, Richard Cheese might be the most ironic tribute act on the planet. Cheese, a.k.a. singer/comedian Mark Davis of Studio City, and his band Lounge Against the Machine rearrange Top 40 radio hits into swanked-up covers reminiscent of Bill Murray's Nick Winters persona on "Saturday Night Live."

COSTA MESA 8pm Theater Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" offers one of the most delightful verbal jousting matches ever conceived: Beatrice and Benedick have at it, masking growing affection with their combative tongues in a bucolic Italian setting while political intrigue festers in the background. South Coast regular Nike Doukas is Beatrice opposite Douglas Sills' Benedick.

This joint is a lock The grand opening of the Vault in downtown Long Beach was a smash. Friday's sold-out Jonny Lang show revealed an ambitious nightclub that's definitely ready for its close-up. The Vault is user-friendly, with great sightlines all the way around. Picture a streamlined House of Blues. Among the opening night guests were Goldenvoice's Paul Tollett and Family Productions' Darryl Potter, whose company is dedicated to putting on safe, all-ages punk shows.

The Reading Room, the only literary bookstore on the Strip, is closing at Mandalay Place. The closing date is likely to fall in March, though that has not been settled, nor has what will be taking the bookstore's place. But according to Scott Voeller, vice president of hotel marketing at Mandalay Bay, the decision is final: "We are really looking at who our customers are and the mix of stores overall, and that is what this is about, part of a process of constant reevaluation."

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia, the city that gave us Poor Richard, cheese-steak sandwiches and the American Constitution, just opened a new treasure: the Barnes Foundation, one of the premier privately assembled collections of painting in the U.S. with more dreamy Renoirs and searching Cézannes than in the whole of France. Its arrival in May halfway between the landmark City Hall and Museum of Art on Benjamin Franklin Parkway - Philly's Champs Élysées - gives visitors a chance to see what was once an almost secret stash of great art. The catalog is astounding, even apart from Renoirs and Cézannes: "The Joy of Life" and "The Dance," by Matisse, Seurat's "The Models," Van Gogh's "The Postman," Manets, Modiglianis, Sisleys, Picassos and more than a dozen Henri "Le Douanier" Rousseaus, all previously hard to access, thanks in part to the collection's former home in Merion, a 45-minute bus ride from downtown.
