Sure, it sometimes seems like they charge $1.35 for a single lemon, but Whole Foods is throwing itself a killer 25th birthday party with lots of cooking demonstrations this weekend in Jonquil Park, at the intersection of Wrightwood, Lincoln, and Sheffield. For $5, you can see Charlie Trotter, Rick Bayless, Rick Tramonto, and HB owners Dan Smith and Steve McDonough on Saturday; on Sunday, you can see Paul Wildermuth, Jared Case, Paul Choi, and a mystery chef. There is also a music stage, as well as a kids' pavillion featuring Environmental Elvis.
