HISTORY: Today is the last day of the video installation "Hollenbeck" by Spencer Douglass and Gustavo Herrera at the gallery Actual Size Los Angeles. The installation is loosely based on John Edward Hollenbeck, a wealthy industrialist who played a key role in the development of Los Angeles during the 1880's. For the last night of the exhibition, the artists will be performing and the gallery will be serving rye whiskey and hot soup, which are basically all the food groups. The event goes from 3 until 5pm and the performance starts at 4pm. For more information, visit the gallery's website.CLASSIC: Esa-Pekka Salonen will be back at Walt Disney Concert hall conducting the LA Phil, which will be performing the premiere of Anders Hillborg’s "Sirens" at 2 p.m. For more information, visit the LA Phil website.

CHEESY: Today is the 80th annual Hollywood Christmas Parade, which will eventually air on the Hallmark movie channel. Marie Osmond will be the parade's grand marshal. The parade starts at 6pm Hollywood Blvd at Orange and loops east to Vine, south on Vine and then west on Sunset back to Orange. (If Hallmark Channel parades aren't your cup of tea, at least you can avoid traffic today.)
