THE DEPTH OF BOLLYWOOD: Bollywood plot lines aren't that deep but they can still be confusing to figure out. What better way to understand India's take on film than through music? Host Robin Sukhadia takes guests on a musical journey of Bollywood at the Kearny Street Workshop, 1436 Howard St. in San Francisco tonight at 9.
EXOTIC LANDS CLOSE TO HOME: If you're feeling exotic but not brave enough to trek out to the City in the rain you could experience the culture of India's northern neighbors in full IMAX glory. The Hackworth IMAX Dome Theater at the Tech Museum in San Jose will screen "Arabia" today at 12. The movie explores the Arabian deserts, the Red Sea and the largest gathering of people on the planet.
MORE THAN SPICY FOOD: Bollywood not your thing? Scared to travel to the Middle East even on film? But you still want some culture in your belly? Head out to the Supperclub in San Francisco for exotic food and one hell of a show that can't be explained, it can only be experienced.
