Starring roles in martial arts movies are pretty straightforward: fight, fight, and fight some more. Jackie Chan certainly knows about such limitations. (In his latest film, Rush Hour, he portrays a kung fu-fighting cop who is clearly mismatched with his cocky partner.) Offscreen, however, Chan does more than work out at the gym and optimistically take acting lessons. He writes. Really! He just published an autobiography cleverly titled I Am Jackie Chan (okay, so he has trouble with titles). He'll sign copies of the book tonight at 7:00 at Borders Books & Music, 19925 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura. Call 305-935-0027. (NK)

What's the difference between an evening herb and a morning herb? There is no difference. The only reason the Redland Evening Herb Society uses the word in its name is that it meets in the evening. The year-old society is dedicated to educating people about the many uses of herbs, as well as to planting and maintaining the park's rapidly expanding herb garden (soon to be the biggest on the East Coast). Tonight at 7:30 at the Fruit and Spice Park (24801 SW 187th Ave., Homestead), the folks meet for a discussion and food tasting. Member Marylu Zurbuchen discusses the herb of the month, sage. Afterward attendees get to sip herbal teas and sample a variety of dishes made with -- you guessed it -- sage. Yearly membership in the society costs $15, but visitors can attend the meeting free of charge. Call 305-246-5825. (
