10-time Grammy-winning salsa singer Ruben Blades hits the Hollywood Bowl with a heck of an opening act -- Maestro Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic. The always entertaining Dudamel leads the Phil in a Latin-themed performance of Mexican composer Arturo Marquez's Danzons Nos. 4 and 8, as well as a series of Symphonic Tangos by award-winning Argentine Emilio Kauderer. Next up, singer-songwriter Blades takes the historic stage. This longtime favorite is not only a Latin jazz superstar who's recorded more than 50 albums, including 2014's Tangos, but he's also a Panamanian politician, Harvard Law grad and a well-respected actor who's starred in close to 40 films. He recently announced a farewell tour for 2015, so catch him while you can at this legendary outdoor amphitheater. Learn More
9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred

I attended this event and walked out after Yasmin sang 4 songs. Why? I was so wanting to see and hear who I thought would be so fantastic. First of all the half of the show was another woman singing and it was oh so boring and not what I paid for. Then after the intermission Yasmin Levy begins. Her songs and singing became so monotonous and the music was sooooo much of the sameness I looked at my friend who was now sleeping from boredom and said let's go. I talked this up so much after hearing one of Yasmin songs on public radio that I am actually thinking how could this woman with not much energy and the same wailing sing so much of the same thing???
