A beautiful weekend ahead of us in Los Angeles, actually all of Cali for that matter. There’s lot of good shows going on this weekend! Too bad I won’t be attending any of them, although Bridezilla and Model/Actress at the Echo last night were top-notch! It’s wedding bells for me this weekend in one of my favorite cities, San Francisco!(and no, I’m not getting married)

If you LOVE lobster and good music, I highly reccommend you check out the The Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival with The Henry Clay People and Dios!
