[Call (310) 858-7272 ext. 131] Previously on LAist: Workout Wednesday: Franklin CanyonWOOFSTOCK!
From 11a.m. to 4p.m., the City of Beverly Hills and a host of pet-loving corporate sponsors welcome all well-behaved dogs on leashes to sniff out the free fun at the City's first Woofstock 90210. It's happening at Roxbury Park (dubbed "Wiggly Field" today) and admission is absolutely free. If you think your dog should be famous, you might want to take him or her down to Bev Hills for this event, because producers from Cesar Milan's hit TV show "Dog Whisperer" and animal talent agency Le PAWS will be on hand throughout the day scouting for new talent.
DO A JIG, FINK A LUCKY CLOVER
Celebrate St. Patty's day at the Orange County Market Place in Costa Mesa from 9-4 today. Irish jigs and reels, Celtic ballads and songs and a Leprechaun will be part of the colorful salute to Ireland during the Third Annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival. See live local dancers, eat all sorts of (non-Irish, it seems) food, see stiltwalkers and a Leprechaun magician, and catch Celtic band Wake the Bard. Admission: $2, Kids 12 and under FREE.
Celebrated British organist Dame Gillian Weir will play Walt Disney Concert Hall this evening, at 7:30 PM. The program ranges widely, with works from composers Messiaen, Scarlatti and Franck among others.

(A limited number of $10 rush tickets for seniors and full time students may be available at the Walt Disney Concert Hall Box Office two hours prior to the performance. Valid identification is required; one ticket per person; cash only.)
