GET THEE TO A MOVIE THEATRE
There are so many movies out right now to see, from new(ish) releases (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Seven Pounds, The Wrestler, Doubt, Revolutionary Road, to name a few) to revivals and special engagements. This might well be the only time of year going to the movies is really rewarding since the new releases are looking for some awards season attention and it's something to do besides go to the mall. Drop your out of town guests off at one of the tourists destinations they're dying to hit up and that you'd rather skip out on, and get yourself to the movies!

GET INTO KWANZAA
What's Kwanzaa? It's another reason to be festive and celebrate this month, that's what! So, this weekend, get in on the joy at the sixth annual Kwanzaa Heritage Parade and Festival in Leimert Park. The festival will feature live entertainment, children's activities, food, a marketplace and other attractions. Today the big fun will be the parade that starts at noon on Crenshaw Blvd. at Rodeo Road and goes south to Leimert Park Village. Learn more about Leimert Park via LAist's Neighborhood Project (and maybe grab a bite while you're there! Yum!)
