Lend a Hand in a Big Pick
They're just getting underway right now, but Food Forward, in partnership with SOVA & CSUN Hillel, will be out picking fruit at CSUN's Orange Orchard (Nordhoff/Lindley) until 4 this afternoon, and chances are they can still use a hand--well, your hands, actually. Get involved in this "Big Pick" event--the largest to date and open to volunteers of all ages--the harvested fruit is all donated to help feed the hungry. Get to CSUN to help out, or get in touch with them for future Pick events. [CSUN Map]

SqueezeFestLA at the Ford
Tonight the LA Accordion Festival hosts SqueezeFestLA at the historic John Anson Ford Amphitheatre. Experience the distinct sounds of three accordion groups cabaret-style Vagabond Opera, the Tex-Mex Conjunto Los Pochos, and Louisiana 's Feufollet. Arrive early with a picnic and enjoy al fresco dining at the beautiful Ford, and catch "accordion diva" Gee Rabe's performance in the plaza ahead of the evening's show. Tickets are $30-40.

Shake Shake Opens: Free Food!
Okay, folks, this will get you fed with burgers, fries, and shakes on the Malibu Pier...for FREE! It's Ruby's Shake Shack's grand opening party from 11AM to 4PM, (the resto opens to the public for regular business tomorrow). Just head down to the Malibu Pier and enjoy the eats and the historic location. You might even get to meet the real-life "Gidget"!
