This weekend marks one of my favorite annual (8 years now to be exact) holidays in Los Angeles, the Precious Cheese Feast of San Gennaro hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla. The event kicked off last night and runs through Sunday evening at 1651 N. Highland Avenue. Saint Gennaro is the patron saint of Napoli and he was martyred in 305 A.D. His blood is still worshiped in NYC to this day.
Come join me for some Perroni and Zeppole, we never miss this street fair. It gives me the slightest bit of East Coast nostalgia that I miss terribly. There is tons of delicious food priced extremely low, so instead of going out to eat this weekend stop by the Feast. There are usually rides for children, carnival games and a petting zoo as well.
The entertainment never stops and this year the line up includes Nick D'Egidio & the Dry Martini Orchestra, Cleto & the Cletones from Jimmy Kimmel Live, cooking demonstrations by several Italian chefs among many, many other great live acts.
