November 3 & 4. Celebration of Turkeys
OMG! It’s a celebration of Turkeys at the beloved Farm Sanctuary with “The Celebrations of the Turkey” event. This is very close to my vegetarian heart. “The Celebrations of the Turkey” at the beloved “Farm Sanctuary” is filled with fun Tomatoes! Turkeys Rule!
I love the thought of spending quality time interacting with the cows, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, and pigs and watching our turkeys indulge in a delicious feast of pumpkin pie, cranberries, and salad while knowing they will never end up on a dinner table. And that’s just the beginning of activities to enjoy. The Farm Sanctuary’s 26-acre Southern California Shelter is located on a beautiful hacienda ranch in Acton, just 45 minutes from Hollywood. In addition to providing shelter for approximately 100 animals, this Southern California Shelter offers one-hour guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays and group tours are available by appointment.

It’s new, it’s grand and it’s big Tomatoes. The Beverly Center is finally unveiling its new fab look to the public in its “Grand Reveal” this weekend. 3 days jam- packed with fashion, food, celebrities, music, panels and lots of special offers at the new Beverly Center. And parking is FREE!
Did you know The Beverly Center, which opened in 1982, replaced a small old amusement park on the site. There’s also a reason for the mall’s vaulted structure… there’s oil underneath the mall, and the structure of the center allows for an enclosure for active oil wells underneath a portion of the property. It was also home to the first U.S. location of the “Hard Rock Café”. There’s been some changes over the years, but this redo is the biggest. Celebrate the revamped Beverly Center by shopping, meeting the makers, toasting the tastemakers, and exploring the creative spirit of LA in this unique destination. They are kicking off the weekend TONIGHT with The Hollywood Reporters amazing panel featuring film’s top costume designers in the industry including Alexandra Byrne of “Mary Queen of Scots”, Erin Benach of “A Star is Born ”, Ruth Carter of “Black Panther”, Julian Day of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, and Sandy Powell of “Mary Poppins Returns”. How cool is that and that is only the start Tomatoes! Save your spot for the weekend now and RSVP.
