Anyone who's been paying attention to the local food scene is well aware of the explosion of Culver City as a foodie destination. With the downtown area well scrubbed from streetscape improvements, locals and visitors alike can experience the area's resurgence first hand by checking out the city's Third Wednesdays, where about two dozen businesses get together to provide art work, music, food and other entertainment.

Downtown Culver City is the perfect place to get away without any of the stress of traveling. Party and play in a neighborhood that is always a good time any day of the year, but especially on the Third Wednesday of every month. Say “Aloha” to August with samples of Spiked Tropical Punch (non-alcoholic samples available for the under-21 set), live music and festive giveaways. Check in at any participating business to pick up your “Third Wednesday Passport,” then get it stamped each time you sample a Spiked Tropical Punch. At the end of the night, turn your passport in at the Kirk Douglas Theatre and be entered in a raffle to win summertime prizes (no purchase necessary). Culver City’s downtown area is Southern California’s best kept secret, featuring a wonderful mix of historic buildings, boutiques, theaters, galleries and unique restaurants opening on to tree-lined streets. Parking is free in municipal structures for up to two hours, or valet parking is available at four convenient Downtown locations. Free event on August 20 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. www.downtownculvercity.com

The Time-Eaters follows the orientation of a freshly-minted human to earthly matters, both fleshly and phantasmagorical. This orientation, delivered by an ambiguously-gendered guide, is essentially a monologue that plays with comedic and narrative conventions while also exploring foundational questions about language: its relationship to knowledge, time, abstraction, experience, communication, and intimacy. As the title suggests, the video is also interested in the surfeit of information currently at our disposal, the time we take in downloading it, and the relationships forged by human animals in its haze. Featuring Angela McGuire and Phil Davis. (2014, Dir. Harry Dodge, 41 min.)
