Tuesday @ 7:30PM -- "Cow Tongue"

This Huell adventure is the result of some disparaging on-air remarks about what he quickly discovered is a culinary delicacy for many people: cow tongue. The episode features a visit to Langer's Deli and a taco stand near USC for some first-hand tongue tasting. The show's editor, Michael Garber -- a tongue aficionado -- also makes an appearance.

Friday @ 7:30PM -- "Hot Dog on a Stick"

We're off to Santa Monica Beach to the site of the very first Hot Dog on a Stick. It all started in 1946 when Dave Barham opened his first stand by Muscle Beach. The company has become a California tradition since then, with Dave's daughter at the helm.

Saturday @ 5:00PM -- "Weed Show"

Saturday @ 5:30PM -- "Mulholland Fountain"

We attend the re-dedication of the stunning Mulholland Fountain at the corner of Los Feliz Boulevard and Riverside Drive. Huell meets the Mulholland family and hears some wonderful stories about William Mulholland, who changed the face of L.A.
