Monday @ 7:30PM -- "Diorama"

Huell visits the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County to explore its famous animal dioramas. He meets with Robert Reid, the museum's resident artist of 20 years who's responsible for creating all of the beautiful exhibits. Reid manages to capture everything from deserts to beaches with nothing more than a paint brush. He works closely with taxidermist Tim Bovard to make the animals appear as lifelike as possible.

It's creepy crawly day on "Visiting." Huell stops by the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County during the 22nd Annual Bug Fair -- the largest event of its kind in North America. We explore the world of insects and get close-up looks at spiders and scorpions, butterflies and bats. Over 60 vendors were on hand with entomological equipment and supplies, artwork, toys, and more.

Join Huell as he hops over to the Pasadena home of Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski, who have turned their house into The Bunny Museum. The space is filled with over 21,000 rabbit collectibles: furniture, light fixtures, kitchenware, toiletries, books, and games. The icing on the cake? There are seven real (litter box-trained) bunnies lounging around their house.

When Huell's bartender at Musso & Frank Grill tells him how much he liked to eat pig ears as a child, Huell decides to try the culinary treat himself. He first stops by Gaytan Foods to see a Latin spin on how the ears are prepared. He then meets up with Ruben (from Musso & Frank) at Durango Restaurant, where they cook the meat like his mom used to. Lastly, he samples a gelatinous Asian delicacy at the Chung King Restaurant.
