A good year for women on film, as exemplified in new releases The Eyes of My Mother, Miss Sloane, and more

The best pretzel in San Diego County is made in Imperial Beach, at Pretzels & More, right next to the Pier. They make this whole wheat banana pretzel (that's right: a pretzel baked right inside); then, whilst it's still piping hot, they shuffle it next door to Cow-A-Bunga, the best ice cream not in San Diego County, but on the friggin' planet, where a generous dollop of homemade cheesecake ice cream is served over it, or next to it, your choice.
Of course, it may spoil your dinner if you do as I did and indulge yourself beforehand, but hey--ya' live once, ya' know?
