FOOD: We hope you're hungry, because many of the best events this weekend involve food. Today is KCRW'S Good Food Pie Contest, which we'll be judging alongside Huell Howser, Michael Voltaggio, and Jonathan Gold, so come say hi. (And here's our write-up of last year's.) The competition will take place at LACMA from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. It's free. If you're looking for something more savory than sweet, head east down Wilshire to A Taste of Koreatown. There will be food, beer, demos and Los Angeles' largest bowl of bibimbap. The festival last from noon until 5 pm and admission is only $2.

FILM: Zorro fans will want to catch 1940's "Mark of Zorro" directed by Rouben Mamoulian on the big screen at the Autry today. The film that takes place in California under Mexican rule is being shown as a part of the "What is a Western?" series going on at the museum. There will be a discussion about the movie beforehand at 1:30 pm, and it's free once you've paid museum admission.

READING: The Last Bookstore in downtown is hosting a reading by Kaya Oakes, who wrote the memoir "Kaya Oakes's Radical Reinvention." It's the story about how a radical feminist returned to the Catholic Church, despite her frustration with the institution steeped in misogyny. Her reading begins at 3 pm.
