food and theatre

Went out to the theatre tonight and saw Tom Stoppard's Rock And Roll at ACT. I was afraid I wouldn't like it, but I ended up liking it a little, maybe in the B- to C+ range. The second act is much better than the first one, much more human.

Before the show, we ate at Navya Lounge, which is an odd Indian restaurant in downtown mall of sorts. It is never very busy, and when we walked in and saw many empty tables but were asked by the hostess, "Do you have a reservation?" at least one of us laughed. While we ate, though, the place did fill up with quite a few people who it seemed came to see the show that started in the lounge while we were there. There was a small stage and a dance troupe doing what my uninformed self would call Bollywood-style dancing to canned Bollywood music. It was amusing.

In other news, I'm wondering if it is possible to come up with a way to analyze asymptotes for general algebraic curves in two variables. I've wondered this for a while, and not gotten around to looking into it much. I should do so.
