Friday evening: My wife and I like to go to Toscana or Divino on the Westside or Pane e Vino in Hollywood. Pasta fagioli is my favorite. We might see a movie in Westwood, Century City or at the Royal on Santa Monica Boulevard.
Saturday morning: I hang out, take a deep breath, sit in the backyard, read the newspaper, call my kids and play with the dog. We may venture out to a bookstore, either Borders on Westwood or Book Soup on Sunset. Then we'll go to Tower Records or Rhino and look for things I've heard during the week on KCRW or KUSC.
