Creed

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

North End, Boston MA

I was recently lucky enough to vacation for two weeks in Boston. I have been back home a while now but still miss Boston. It is a great town with so much vibrance and history, it is truly incredible. The neighborhood called North End serves as Boston’s Little Italy. It is endless shops and restaurants 95% of them being Italian. A couple notable places are Regina Pizzeria (the North End location only). This place started in 1926 and has the single best pizza I’ve had. When on vacation this time I had a pizza there with pepperoni, garlic and basil. It was incredible. Also notable are Mike’s Pasty & Modern Pasty for their cannoli. Mike’s opened in 1946 and Modern opened in 1930. They both have phenomenal product and I recommend them both. Also when in North End stop by Gigi Gelato/Gelateria & Cannoli Factory. My favorite place to go for gelato. It is a shame i live 3000 miles from it. A great trip to make for anyone who is of Italian heritage.¬†IMG_4489 DSC_0788 DSC_0789 DSC_0790 DSC_0791 DSC_0792 IMG_4495 DSC_0793 IMG_4497 IMG_4498 DSC_0794 DSC_0834 DSC_0835 DSC_0836 DSC_0837 DSC_0838 IMG_4499 DSC_0839 DSC_0840 DSC_0841 DSC_0844 DSC_0845DSC_0402 IMG_4479 DSC_0403 IMG_4480 DSC_0404 DSC_0197 DSC_0198 DSC_0199 DSC_0200 DSC_0201 DSC_0202 DSC_0203 DSC_0204 DSC_0205 DSC_0206 DSC_0207 DSC_0208 DSC_0209 DSC_0210 IMG_4529 IMG_4538

Taste of Italy 2014, Los Angeles, CA

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!!

Feast of San Gennaro

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.
