Weekly What To Do: Hungry For Love and Culture?

not at Nucleus
It's not even Valentine's Day yet, but you can't tell going into any thrift store in town. Someone might have wanted to tell dineLA's backers as the twelve day event lowers the prices on restaurants you might want to take a date. Special deals on meals to look good for your significant other or whoever, I'm not saying it's cheating. I didn't see you go anywhere with anyone else.

What stand out in other things to do this week is the Little Golden Tales Tribute show at the ever far Nucleus. I worry if it's on the kiddies side and not the making fun of movie side. If going far off anyway the American Asian Expo might take up a few hours of your weekend. Embrace Asian culture or just watch the culture and eat its food. Don't forget photo la and The LA Art Show for even more culture.

Cirque du Soleil Totem

Hey, they couldn't stay at the Dolby theaters, but that doesn't mean they can just take your money again in Santa Monica. A new show under a real big top and with PETA telling Ringling Bros. how they can handle their elephants it might be the only big top you'll see for a while. Oh, wait maybe they got the people from Vegas who got hurt on that death defying act to come back from early death.
Seriously, I know people watch these show, but I could watch the regular circus.
