Three Things to check out - September 22 - 28, 2008

1) The weather is gorgeous and the view spectacular - when was the last time you visited the Getty Museum? Why not check it out this week? Open now and running through October 25 is an exhibit of the works of the Baroque artist Bernini. Bernini's portrait busts are breathtaking for the realistic detail captured in marble.

2) In Venice, check out the 24th Annual Abbot Kinney Festival. Dubbed the "ultimate block party", this festival showcases the great restaurants and eclectic merchants lining Abbot Kinney Blvd. Three stages feature live music.

3) Or go Downtown, for the Grand Avenue Festival celebrating the arts, music, dance, and culture. Enjoy gallery tours and performances by L.A.'s leading arts organizations.

And while we're at it - What's up with all the Lobster Festivals in the South Bay, anyway?
