THIS WEEKEND: Ghostly meetups at the Linda Vista Hospital & the Old Spaghetti Factory

Time to get your ghost on: This weekend in L.A., you'll have not one, but two opportunities to check out haunted locations with fellow supernatural enthusiasts.

Tonight, the Boyle Heights Paranormal Project is holding a meet & greet to celebrate their recent website launch at the notorious Linda Vista Hospital (which, as you may recall, was the subject of a Ghost Adventures episode). Tours of the facility will not be given, but visitors will be allowed inside of the hospital. The event will begin with coffee and pastries in the lobby at 9 PM, followed by a slide show and presentation in the chapel. The event is free and open to the public.

Tomorrow night brings yet another opportunity to frolic with the good people of GHOULA (Ghost Hunters of Urban Los Angeles), a local ghost hunting group of which I am a Vice President. This month's meeting will be held at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Duarte, which used to be a schoolhouse in the early 20th century, and has several ghost stories associated with the building. We will be meeting in the "Hide-Away Room" next to the bar at 8 PM. Again, the event is free and open to all.

Visit for more information on both events. Happy haunting!

TONIGHT: Rob Zombie directs 'CSI: Miami'

Don't forget to tune in to CBS tonight at 10 PM to check out the all new Rob Zombie-directed episode of CSI: Miami. The episode, titled "L.A.," stars RZ favorites Malcolm McDowell, William Forsythe, Michael Madsen and - of course - Ms. Sheri Moon Zombie.

Regarding how he'll put his own spin on the popular crime show, Zombie told the NY Daily News, "In the opening scene, it'll seem obvious [that I was the director]. But I wasn't trying to disrespect the show by disregarding anything they've done. I wasn't trying to turn it into something different."

Having never seen an episode of CSI: Miami myself, I'm coming to this show with a completely fresh perspective. I'll let you know my thoughts after it airs!
