Tonight was Part 2 of the Hobbit at Marbles Imax in 3D, the 3D being entirely unnecessary for this film but the Imax being quite necessary to fully appreciate Smaug. There was definitely some padding for the middle film (the whole side plot with the Tauriel/Legolas/Kili love triangle is rather silly; if there must be an elf-dwarf love story, why not at least stick to the canonical characters and do Legolas & Kili?) But the core of the story is intact, and the visual spectacle is quite entertaining.

Before the movie, we went to Caffe Luna, my first time there (we've tried several times in the past and always been thwarted by long waits or special parties or odd hours). But tonight we got in, and it was definitely yummy! Veal Parmigiana for me, and I got to sample the Tortelli Crostacci, which was also delicious.
