I'll be busy with family this weekend. Friday at sundown is the beginning of the Jewish holidays. We will celebrate the New Year, Rosh Hashanah. L' Shana Tovah means Happy New Year in Hebrew. It's traditional to eat sweet food for the celebration to insure that you will have a sweet, successful and happy new year. Apples and honey are a favorite, also anything cooked with honey.
There's an interesting festival on Sunday called Thai Cultural Day at Barnsdall Park in East Hollywood. Trekking L.A. is hosting a walking tour focusing on global street food (Thai and Armenian) in East Hollywood. Read about it here.
You might want to catch a play over the weekend: "Matthew Modine Saves the Alpacas" at the Geffen has received interesting reviews.
Later on Sunday, plunk yourself down in front of the TV and watch the 61st Primetime Emmys. I usually flip channels for the pre-show, red carpet interviews between E-Entertainment, TV Guide Channel and the broadcaster of the actual ceremony, CBS. Ryan Seacrest is the best red carpet interviewer EVER. He's up on all the shows and cast members. He asks smart questions and he's quick with the ad-libs. I am looking forward to seeing Neal Patrick Harris emcee the primetime show too...he's very intelligent and entertaining. Watching the Emmys will also afford yourself an excellent opportunity to knit and crochet!
