Here’s wishing you a wonderful weekend with your friends and family, whether you’re celebrating your daughter’s decision to become a dude, like Warren Beatty did this week at Il Covo, or watching your offspring get crowned 2012’s Miss Golden Globe, like Andie McDowell at Cecconi’s this week. Personally, we’d probably prefer the former for our own brood, but it doesn’t really matter as long as everyone’s all together, right? Have yourself a happy holiday full of great food and strong drink. Next week, our favorite magical elf will be crafting Grub Street L.A. while we hibernate before ushering in 2012. We’ll see you back here on Tuesday. Here’s to happy holidays and a perfect new year!

Comme Ca: Modern Family super-stud Jesse Tyler Ferguson was at the restaurant on Saturday night. [GS]
Gjelina: Tim Robbins…again and again and again. All day, all night, Tim Robbins. Anyway, we’ll probably be rooting for Andy in Shawshank Redemption at least twice this holiday weekend. [GS]
Lola’s: Long Beach banda sensation Jenni Rivera caused excitement amongst fans when dining here this week. Staff lowered the lights to protect her privacy. [GS]
