If you've ever been to Coachella, you know the three-day music festival is a downright marathon. You're in the heat, jumping up and down for your favorite artists, screaming along to every song and fighting your way to the front of each stage. For this, you need fuel in the form of good food and strong libations. The festival is stepping up its food program this year with two on-site restaurants and a beer garden in addition to the regular food vendors and food trucks. Here's a look at all the offerings that will be available when it begins in mid-April: The beer garden will be located at The Terrace, the main festival food hub. There will also be bites from Ruth Chris Steak House , Las Casuelas Quinta , Baohaus and Pink's Chili Dogs . Some of the new food vendors include Wood-Fired Pizza, Just Tossed Organic Salads and Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches.

More than 10,000 kindergartners converged on the county's community college campuses Friday for an early lesson in academic aspiration. And 5-year-old Dulce Acosta quickly grasped the message urged by the fourth annual KinderCaminata. "I have to go to college to be a doctor," said the Topaz Elementary School student from Placentia, who was visiting Fullerton College.

In his widely panned bow as Oscars host, “Family Guy” and “American Dad!” creator Seth MacFarlane lived up to his reputation for transgressive frat-boy humor by biting the proverbial hand that feeds. He attempted to bag on just about every A-list actor and Hollywood heavyweight within his sightline at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday night in a performance that, nonetheless, many observers found boring while also failing to live up to the host's usual standard of crassness. “MacFarlane was occasionally crude and mildly offensive; unfortunately, he wasn't very funny,” Mary McNamara observed in The Times.

ABC has wrapped up the bulk of its upfront advertising sales for the upcoming television season, holding back some commercial time to sell throughout the year. After more than two months of negotiations with the various ad agencies, the Walt Disney Co.-owned broadcast network on Thursday was putting the finishing touches on its final deals, according to a person close to the negotiations. ABC became the last of the Big Four broadcast networks to end the haggling with ad buyers -- but not because of a lack of interest in ABC's slate, which includes "Modern Family," "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy" and "The Bachelor.

That Audi would launch the fire-breathing S8 to compete with German mega-sedans, including the Mercedes-Benz S63 and the BMW Alpina B7, isn't a surprise. That the S8 would provide a viable alternative to its distant cousin -- the Porsche Panamera Turbo -- is. And it does this for $30,000 less. The S8 is the latest S model from Audi. It sits atop the brand's hierarchy of sedans and coupes; only the R8 V-10 supercar has more horsepower. The full-size sedan joins the recently introduced S6, S7 and RS5, giving Audi a compelling mix of competitors to take on Mercedes' AMG line and BMW's M series.

INDIO -- Self-described “model-sociallite” Silka (no last name given) drifted across the densely populated Coachella VIP section during the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' evening set attired in a crocheted shawl, a $400 Malia Mills bikini and a pair of Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges. She was sipping discreetly at a vodka cranberry in a plastic tumbler and turning heads with every step. The New York-based native of Hungary explained she had spent the better part of two days earlier this week sifting through her wardrobe to find precisely the right ensembles for three days' worth of festival revelry beneath Indio's baking sun. “Of course I love the music but of course I want to look good,” Silka said as a male companion smiled in nodding agreement.

Along with blues, shades of pale blush, rose, dove gray and nude were also popular on the Emmy red carpet Sunday, for better or worse. "Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore an all-over embroidered rose gold Monique Lhuillier column gown that shined like a pearl. "Homeland" actress Claire Danes chose an ethereal nude tulle Armani Privé gown with a tulle bodice embroidered with sequins, and a full crinoline lace skirt accented with a woven horizontal ribbon motif. Ever the risk taker, January Jones chose a nude lace Givenchy confection that unfortunately resembled a Band-Aid, especially since the fit was too tight across the bodice.

"Hotel Transylvania" director Genndy Tartakovsky was watching TV when the Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday morning and didn't hear his movie -- or any other animated titles -- named. Instead, Tartakovsky found out by text that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had nominated his film for best animated feature, along with Mark Andrews's "Brave," Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie," Peter Ramsey's "Rise of the Guardians" and Rich Moore's "Wreck-It Ralph. " "Animators, we're always the last to know," said Tartakovsky, the sixth director to come aboard the monster comedy, which ended up being a surprise hit for Sony Pictures Animation.
