Hard to believe it was seven years ago when Jimmy Kimmel got the wacky idea to give L.A. a festival like the one in NYC, but now we have the seventh annual Precious Cheese Italian Feast of San Gennaro L.A., which is just like the Little Italy festival but without the accents or ambiance. Once again, Kimmel and Adam Carolla host the fete featuring food booth after food booth, plus live music, carnival rides and games, fashion shows, grape stomps, street performers and bocce ball. 1651 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood.; Fri.-Sun., Sept. 26-28, 10 a.m.-11 p.m.; $5. Prima Notte silent auction & fund-raiser featuring Jerry Vale on Thurs., Sept. 25, 5 p.m., $100 & $250.

Thu., Sept. 25, 5-10 p.m.; Sept. 26-28, 11 a.m.-11 p.m., 2008
