"There's as much good physics in a thunderstorm as in a synchrotron," writes James Trefil. This is the third in a series of books in which Trefil demonstrates that the working of natural laws are as apparent in nature as in the laboratory. He starts by answering a question dreaded by all parents of inquisitive youngsters: Why is the sky blue?

"After the Sunset" is an unalloyed delight, bright and breezy escapist fare that's pure entertainment, filled with romance, adventure, humor, action, suspense, beautiful scenery and beautiful people. Best of all, it's got more emotion than gadgetry and special effects -- although those are spiffy indeed. It just goes to show there's nothing like a clever script, along with perfect casting and, above all, direction that's feather-light.

My happy place isn't really a place but a state of mind that can appear in lots of places. It's that moment of bliss when you turn off other worries and embrace where you are. In the U.S. Virgin Islands, it was the moment I decided there was nothing I could do to make a taxi appear at the Trunk Bay snorkeling trail on St. John. I exhaled and sat down at a picnic table. A local man nodded approvingly, "That's right, don't worry. " And then a taxi magically appeared, so I didn't miss the last ferry after all. In South Africa, it was lunch overlooking the penguin colony at Simon's Town.

Delancey's George Abou-Daoud has a new restaurant called District on Sunset next door to his (also quite new) wine bar and deli Mercantile. The casual restaurant opened a little over a week ago with Kris Morningstar, the talent behind Blue Velvet's kitchen in the early days, at the stoves. For District, he's come up with a menu of quirky, often delightful dishes. Check out the space, though. It's a little bit steampunk, a little bit West Village back in the day. First of all, there's the bar, a glorious hunk of mahogany that stretches from the front to the back of the long, narrow space.
