Abstain from obsessively renumbering that Netflix queue—Weeds Season 3 still has a “short wait.” This week and next it is all about getting out to the movies. Putting Sex and the City and Ironman aside, let’s talk festivals—’cause let’s face it: SF loves it some festivals.

1. Allez Cuisine!
While it’s not quite Iron Chef, food-contest lovers will be flocking to Sacramento on Tuesday, June 10, for the SushiMasters State Finals Competition. Categories include morikomi, also known as “traditional style,” and signature roll. The cost of admission ($50) covers a reception-style sampling of sushi, sake and other Japanese specialties and a traditional sake barrel-breaking ceremony. Tickets can be purchased at tickets.com or charged by phone at 800-225-2277.

A) Hooker’s gone shark hunting
B) Hooker’s finishing the pilot script for his sick and twisted TV show
C) Hooker’s building a state-of-the-art Iron Suit to battle terrorists
D) Hooker’s digging through Peruvian tombs in search of Conquistador mummies and the Lost City of Gold
While he’s on hiatus, in honor of 7x7’s Best of issue, MRF left a whole mess of Best of Hookers Reel(s) for all you suckers who don’t have his archives page bookmarked yet so dig in Reel Junkies.
