KCBS reporter Liam Mayclem will be providing KPIX 5 users with a weekly weekend tip list of Bay Area entertainment, music, film and online entertainment.
MOVIE: James Bond Is Back
Forget about James Bond saving the world, can he rescue the movies in the era of COVID and streaming-service domination? You be the judge but I say yes! This is the last outing for Daniel Craig as Bond and I feel this is Craig at his most brilliant as 007. No Time To Die is a right royal, high octane, in your face action film. It’s the 25th Bond film and was directed by the Bay Area’s own Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) and opens Friday in local theatres and I highly recommend it.
DINING: Miller & Lux
Daily: 5:30pm – 11pm
Miller & Lux brings fine dining to San Francisco’s home of the Warriors, Chase Center at Mission Bay, where a night out provides a slam dunk for pre or post-game diners! Rolling carts are a theme here: from champagne to salads to desserts, wheeled up tableside for your delight & selection. The menu offers surf and turf and something from everyone: M&L Burger at $24 to the delish & decedent Caviar doughnuts $98 (for 5) but worth the splurge. Miller & Lux is the latest restaurant by Bay Area based star Chef, TV personality & entrepreneur Tyler Florence.
EAT: Warriors Food Dreams
Go to Chase Center to cheer on the Warriors, but bring an appetite and prepare to get excited about the diverse offerings of cuisine, reflecting the food centric & culturally rich Bay Area including chicken & waffles, Impossible meats hot dog, vegan Shanghai Lupia and vegan pastrami sandwich.

Parade viewing is available throughout the entire route.
FILM FEST: Mill Valley Film Festival 44
It’s the little film fest that could, Mill Valley Film Festival showcasing a diverse portfolio of films from around the Bay and around the world. My personal pick is Sunday’s screening of Like A Rolling Stone, a documentary about the fascinating life of author, broadcaster, rock journalist & Bay Area treasure Ben Fong Torres. It’s a brilliant doc about an amazing guy with a passion for story telling and music who went on to write for and edit Rolling Stone Magazine (1969 – 1981). See you there on Sunday.
MUST SEE TV: Evil
If you like a show that is captivating and haunting, gets under your skin and keeps your on the edge of your seat – Evil is it. The basics: Kristen is hired by the Catholic Church to determine if a serial killer is possessed by a demon and well, I’ll leave the rest for you to discover. Smart scripts and suspenseful direction make Evil must see streaming TV. New shows on Sundays.
