More than 50 baddies will be unleashed at Disney's Hollywood Studios for a new separate-ticket event Aug. 23 called Villains Unleashed. Disney found out it was on to something when it kicked off Halloween season last September with a special night of villains on Friday the 13th. It was so popular the Hollywood Studios parking lot was full by early evening and the park reached capacity. The new after-hours event will bring back the bad guys (and women) for one night. It will feature more than 50 Disney villains, including some from Star Wars, plus a special show, dance party and a fireworks finale called Villainy in the Skies. Attractions that will be open include The Twilight Zone – Tower of Terror, Rock N Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania and Star Tours, and visitors are allowed to arrive in costume. Tickets are $67 for ages 10 and older and $62 for children at disneyworld.disney.go.com. —Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer

    The time is right for summer salads gussied up with light proteins. Boiled shrimp is the perfect candidate, especially paired with orange, avocado and mint, as it is here.

  5. Drink of the week: Yalumba Y Series Viognier, South Australia 2016

    Bars & Spirits

    I've long wondered why viognier isn't a more popular wine. With its seductive floral aromas and luscious fruit flavors, it's one of my favorite whites.
