DOWNTOWN: The annual LA Greek Fest at St. Sophia Cathedral takes in the Byzantine Latino Quarter, once home to a large Greek population, still home to the fabulous Papa Cristos. Celebrating its 10th year, there's everything Greek you need at this event: Souvlaki, Ouzo, Greek beers, roast lamb and chicken, pastitsio, moussaka, dolmathes, loukamades, galaktobouriko?cue mouthwatering now. Friday night admission is free; $5 entry the other two days. (Sept 5-7; 1324 S. Normandie) [EaterWire]

LONG BEACH: Crustaceans are the name of the game at the Original Long Beach Lobster Festival at the Rainbow Lagoon this weekend (not to be confused with the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival or the Redondo Beach Lobster Fest, both of which take place Sept 26-28). Lobster dinners or food-court eats for non-lobster lovers. Live music, lots of stupid foam lobster hats. $15 admission at the gate, plus cost of food; $10 to park. (Sept 5-7; 300 Ocean Blvd) [EaterWire]

HOLLYWOOD: The Hollywood Farmers' Market celebrates the love fruit this Sunday with the annual Tomato Festival. Sample more than 30 varieties of tomatoes, get tips on canning and drying, learn how to make tomato juice, and meet Amy Goldman who wrote the beautiful "The Heirloom Tomato" book. (Sunday, Ivar and Selma, 9am-1pm; free) [Daily Dish]
