Every week, we'll try to highlight a few Eater-sanctioned events, the kind of things we can see spending our own hard-won dollars on, so you should too. Know of something we can't miss? Drop it here.
WESTWOOD: There's some good food-focused stuff happening at the LA Times Festival of Books this Saturday and Sunday, April 28 and 29: A panel discussion on the Politics of Food with Marion Nestle, Michael Pollan, Barry Glassner and Russ Parsons; and celebrity chefs and cookbook authors doing demos and signing books. If you've been dying to meet Govind Armstrong, the Food Network's Dave Lieberman, Iron Chef Cat Cora, "Queer Eye's" Ted Allen, Nancy Silverton (natch), or Lidia Bastinanich (the one we'd love to meet the most), now's the time.

WEST HOLLWYOOD: Sang Yoon. He's terse, cocky, and known for having one of the tastiest gourmet burgers in town. It's so popular, he's threatened to stop serving it. But we all know he never will. Instead, he's taking that flava from his usual digs at the Father's Office and whipping up a special dinner at Bin 8945 this Sunday. We just want to see if he'll curse as much as he did in this month's LA Magazine article. [EaterWire]
