In 1862, Cinco de Mayo--May 5--was the day a band of vastly outnumbered Mexican soldiers defeated powerful invading French troops under Napoleon II in Puebla, Mexico. These days, Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of that feat--one that, in fact, attracts more attention here in Los Angeles than in Mexico. In anticipation of the battle's anniversary next Wednesday, this weekend is full of fiestas and festivals. Friday Start celebrating at L.A.'

For now, at least, call it the farmers market in search of a home. Plans to bring a weekly fruit-and-veggie market to Alvarado Terrace Park in Pico-Union were met with something less than enthusiasm by residents, who frown on the potential for increased foot traffic that could make the neighborhood's thriving narcotics trade even more difficult to control. "We want to keep this area as quiet as possible," said Johnny Garcia, a homeowner who lives nearby.

The nicest thing about gift-buying is that it admits the impractical. The most exciting presents don't address what the person on your list really needs; they speak to what that person would truly love. No one wants to unwrap a DustBuster. You buy what pleases, what excites, what stirs desire. You buy, of course, what you secretly want for yourself. We scoured the stores and the catalogs and gathered the gift for food lovers that caught our eye or just made us feel happy.

Expect to pay a little more for your turkey this year. Because of this summer's high temperatures in the Midwest and on the Eastern Seaboard, the turkey flock is smaller than normal. How much that will affect prices is a matter of some debate. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says wholesale prices should bump up only pennies a pound. But at least one local retailer is being told to look for a price increase of 10 to 12 cents per pound.
