    EAT: Tumanyan Khinkali Factory
    The soup-dumpling craze takes a new turn with the khinkali - a Georgian dumpling. Jonathan Gold describes the khinkali as a “near peak soup dumpling experience,” so it’s time to venture to Glendale to check it out. While you’re waiting for the dumplings to steam, try the charcuterie plate, Mediterranean salad, and ich. http://bit.ly/1dKixfa

    SEE: Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution
    One of the most influential concert promoters in history, Graham launched the careers of countless rock & roll legends in the ’60s at his famed Fillmore Auditorium.
