Judging from a quick skim of Yeah Dave's Guide to Livin' the Moment: Getting Ecstasy through Wine, Chocolate, and Your iPod Playlist, it seems author Dave Romanelli is a master of the obvious. People could be happier if they, like, take a moment to enjoy the nice things in life, bro. He skewers snooty, competitive "front-row" yoga students and teachers, including one anecdote about how he totally showed up another yogi by pretending to be an incompetent yoga buffoon, spouting profundities in Sanskrit, then knocking back shots of Corona Light with salt and lime. Meet this incredible intellect yourself at a wine and chocolate party and book signing 6:30 p.m. Thursday at GoodBody's Yoga Center, 5301 W. Lover's Lane. Cost is $55, or $60 at the door.
