Meghan McCarty brings you the Weekend Alibi, a roundup of the best entertainments around Southern Califonria.

This week, be transported to Manhattan in LA as Cinespia screens the Woody Allen film at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. And 15 playwrights present short dramas at and inspired by the La Brea Tar Pits and Page Museum. The subjects may be epic, encompassing thousands of years of history, but they're all contained in just 10 minutes. Finally, get a taste and then some of Korean cuisine at the Taste of Koreatown food festival Saturday. There will be stands from some of the best restaurants in the area, a spicy tofu-eating contest and the biggest bowl of bibimbap LA has ever seen.
