You've heard of Christmas in July, but we're about to get all Halloween in June as the third season of HBO's True Blood debuts. Any juicy suggestions or questions? Let us know.
Now that we've entered a lull of Twilight madness, we need another vampire drama. Thus, the third season of HBO's True Blood premiered last night, and already it has us adding new vampire must-visit spots to our True Blood Travel Guide.

Vinny Chase is set to re-launch his career after scoring a role in a new Martin Scorsese flick, and that means the boys are back on the Hollywood circuit. We haven’t heard any reports of Entourage filming far afield this season, which is good news for those who watch the show less for the celebrity sightings than for the tutorials on what’s hot in the LaLa-land club scene.
The cast has been spotted in recent months at Villa Lounge—an uber-sleek Melrose Heights club outfitted to look like a plush Hollywood Hills Mansion (good luck getting in if you’re not actually with a celebrity)—and Urth Café, which should provide a nice little bump for that trendy West Hollywood organic coffee shop. Of course, those in it for the celeb sightings won’t be disappointed either as L’il Wayne, Tom Brady, Zac Efron, and LeBron James have all been spotted recently on the Entourage set.

Looks like free outdoor movies are joining music festivals on the list of things that won't live through the recession. HBO has announced that it's pulling the plug on DC's popular Screen on the Green series, which brings out thousands every summer for free classic movie screenings on the National Mall.
In what could be construed as a diss to DC, HBO will continue to sponsor this year's Bryant Park Film Festival, which is basically the exact same event, but in Manhattan, and kicks off with a showing of The Sting on June 15th. Given that DC already copes with a minor New York inferiority complex, Washingtonians are not happy, and nearly 2,000 of them have joined the Save Screen on the Green facebook page.
No word yet on whether Obama plans to bailout the film festival, but rumor has it The Kennedy Center is planning to step in with its own summer film series on their terrace level·also a picturesque spot, although considerably smaller than the Mall.
