FOX 11's food and fun expert Mar Yvette searches the Los Angeles area for some of the best places to eat, drink, shop and have a great time. Featured guests then swarm our FOX Television Center parking lot every Thursday morning between 9am and 10am on Good Day LA, creating a big party as one jam-packed segment known as the Weekend Roundup!
Here's more information about the guests we featured:
Windswept Ranch Reindeer
We all know Rudolph but just in time for the holidays we are introducing you to two other reindeer: Tundra and baby Nicky. These gorgeous creatures are from Windswept Ranch near Tehachapi, California, which cares for about 140 animals (40% are rescues) including reindeer, camels, zebra, buffalo, yak, emu, guanaco and lots of sheep and goats. You can enjoy tours every Saturday starting in the spring, but before then, you can meet these beautiful reindeer on Saturday, December 21 at Malibu Country Mart.
Whether you're a local or an out-of-town guest, a visit to The Grove during the holidays is a must. Celebrate the season at Santa's Cottage and take a photo with the big guy himself, enjoy snowflakes nightly at 7pm and 8pm, marvel at the 100-foot tall white fir Christmas tree (decorated with more than 15,000 lights and 10,000 ornaments!) and sing along to the merry melodies of holiday brass and other musical performances and entertainment.

For gourmands looking to celebrate the holidays with a delicious Italian feast, the fabulous new Al Bacio in West Hollywood (8741 Sunset Blvd) is offering a four-course dinner prepared by executive chef Christian Simionato on Christmas Eve. The 75-seat restaurant features authentic Italian cuisine with everything made from scratch including all the pastas and sorbets. You'll feel like you've been transported to Italy without ever having to leave LA.
