Hollywood Forever Cemetery Pita

Picnic in a cemetery? Heck yeah! Especially when Shampoo, Warren Beatty's quintessential randy satire of L.A. couplings is projected outdoors during a scorching summer night on a mausoleum white wall (interred inside is cinema's original male sex symbol, silent movie star

Rudolph Valentino.) Cinespia's outdoor summer film series in Hollywood Forever Cemetery is off to a steamy start, and for $10 (plus $5 for parking with a carload of friends - locals park off site and hoof it), it is on The 99 Cent Chef's summer must-do list.
Coming this Saturday is Easy Rider - a movie that launched a thousand spliffs and one of the first great rock movie soundtracks in the Chef's high school daze, where the accompanying dance was to turn on the bedroom fan toward an open window, stuff towels under the door, put on headphones and spark up a doobie. The sound system is kickin' for these summer screenings with a smokin' DJ before and after the movie. Now is the time for all good picnickers to come together. So load up the picnic basket, arrive early
and get your appetite and buzz on.

For your picnic pleasure, The Chef creates a chicken pita delight stuffed with shredded chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion and avocado. The chicken is 99c only Store canned; of course, if you want fresh chicken use the Chef's film - themed "Russ Meyer Lemon Chicken" recipe. 99c only Stores are carrying tomato (black cherry), lettuce or spinach (organic baby arugula blend, too), and pita bread; don't forget to bring a few bottles of fine kosher Argentina Malbec red wine from the Hollywood 99c only Store.

Ingredients (serves 2)
6 oz. can chicken meat
99 cent package of pita bread
Sliced tomato, lettuce, pickle, onion and avocado
Mustard and/or mayo - add garlic powder to mayo and honey to mustard for extra flavor


Drain and break apart canned chicken and store in a container. Slice lettuce and tomato and store in separate containers as well. Slice pita in halves. Open and slice avocado at cemetery. Bring plenty of wine.

I'm near the Highland Park Store on York. Is the wine at the Hollywood Store only?

Hi palm axis,
Believe it or not there are a few 99c only stores I have yet had the pleasure to visit, like your Highland Park store. I saw the wine at the Wilshire/Fairfax store also, but beware, the stock of wine comes and goes daily and not all 99c only stores carry alcohol.
