With a little over a month to go we are almost at the release of the new movie CREED. This seems like a fitting and logical progression from Rocky being a boxer. We see Stallone acting but not as a writer or director this time. He is set to mentor Adonis Creed (played by Michael B Jordan) who is the grandson of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) from the first three Rocky films. Looking forward to seeing where this new legacy will venture. In theater’s November 25

Two years ago we lost one of the best of our time. May his soul rest easy.
Last night the Italian-American Museum of Los Angeles held its 6th Annual Taste of Italy in Downtown Los Angeles. The Taste of Italy serves as a fundraiser for the soon to be re-opened Italian-American Museum. General Admission was $55 and VIP was $125. General admission came with 6 drink and 6 food tickets. Among the draws were many food and drink booths (all food and drinks cost 1 ticket). The food was amazing as were the drinks. There were various performers providing entertainment including but not limited to: The LA Opera & The Swing Dolls. The Swing Dolls were easily my favorite. There was also a cooking demo stage. The highlight there was Actor Louis Lombardi from such shows as “24 (Edgar Stiles)” and “The Sopranos (Skip Lipari)”. Mr. Lombardi was there to demo cooking and promote his line of gourmet Italian foods. It was great to meet him he is a talented actor and a gentleman. We are already looking forward to Taste of Italy 2015!!
If you’re looking for something fun and cultural to get involved in this weekend check out the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles’ Taste of Italy 2014 this Saturday at the Pico House in LA. General admission tickets are $55/each. For more information check out the website.
If you’re looking for something fun to do in the Los Angeles area this weekend consider dropping by The Feast of San Gennaro in Hollywood. It is sponsored by Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla. The event is held on the Jimmy Kimmel backlot of his theater where he films his late night show. The celebration kicks off Thursday night with Prima Notte where many notable celebrities will drop by. Entrance to Prima Notte is a tick pricy but looks to be fun. Friday – Sunday it runs all day long and entrance is $5 unless your under 12, then its free. The fee goes towards scholarships for students in the are. The festival consists of many booths and events. Notable are the food booths, rides and the procession of San Gennaro around the lot onto Hollywood Blvd and back to the mainstage which culminates with Mass around Noon (this is on Saturday). The Feast of San Gennaro is a fun time and great for families of all sizes and people of all ages.
