And the March 27 awards ceremony could be even sweeter for Adams as his girlfriend, Monique Hafen, is nominated for her roles in both those productions, too. LISTENING TO ‘LA MUERTE’: Teatro Visión Executive Director Leigh Henderson tells me she was very happy with the “community circles” the company held last week to inspire the creation of a new Dia de los Muertos play. “We had a wonderful and successful weekend of story gathering,” she said. Teatro has added a third opportunity for the community to share their stories about people who live their lives to be at peace when “la muerte” comes and how the death of someone close can give life to something new. The free event will be at De Anza College’s Euphrat Museum of Art on Wednesday, starting at 6:30 p.m. You can read about the development of the new work online at www.teatrovision.org/newwork.

While most of the events will have the same flavor as in years past, there are two new elements in the seventh annual festival that are worthy of note. The Napa Valley premiere of “24 Hour Plays,” which is being advertised as “a feat of extreme theater,” takes place in the Lincoln Theater on July 14. Over the course of 24 hours, four new short plays will be written, rehearsed and performed, with the sections of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” as intervening musical interludes. The cast includes some pretty big celebrities — Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber, Hugh Dancy and Chris Noth.

Nico’s is the brainchild of chef-owner Munther Massarweh, a Bay Area native who was executive chef at Chicago’s Pump Room before launching a number of Bay Area restaurants, including Tin Pan Asian Bistro in San Francisco and Wildfox in Novato. Back to that bar, which, once we were inside, felt like a place I’d set up camp in were I a neighborhood resident. Like much of the restaurant, it has a retro-stylish feel and a cozy vibe. Some of the dining booths actually have curtains that can be drawn if you’re looking for a real “hideaway” experience. A rooftop patio is said to offer beautiful views, but it was too cold to chance it during our visit.
