L.A. quiz preview: Sunday, May 19

Four days! That's how long Los Angeles has to wait till it gets another dose of live quiz excitement: our monthly stand at Busby's East in the Miracle Mile. L.A.'s best multimedia trivia experience, with "Moments in Sports: They're Grrrreat!," "History Through Music (Not Music Through History)," "The Candy Bar Corner Corner," and tons more. All for the finest prize haul anywhere: $200 for first place, plus passes to some of the city's top live experiences, including…

As experienced at last month's show, Eat See Hear is on the BQT sponsor train all season long. Los Angeles's premier outdoor fest of movies, food trucks and live events, the event is now in full swing; this Saturday night, you can regress like never before by seeing Ted at its pop-up drive-in venue downtown. And food trucks! There's a titanic roster of mobile eats suppliers—this weekend, don't miss Baby’s Badass Burgers, if only for the name. And don't forget the "Hear" element, with L.A.'s best local bands doing what they do so that you can do what you want to do. Some lucky discerning quizgoers this Sunday will take home some free passes to ESH events, because we're awesome like that. Learn more about Eat See Hear at (quite logically).

And returning to us from last year: What is film in Los Angeles without the Los Angeles Film Festival?

Not much, we say. It takes over downtown L.A.—yes, such a place exists—June 13 through 23, and we got tix to various events on tap for some of the winners. Screenings, master classes, awards, conversations, etc., etc., indeed etc. I mean, an outdoor screening of Hitchcock's Vertigo is like film-geek catnip. More info about the festival right here.

Plus, the usual grab bag of Hollywood swag prizes. Unspeakable trivia awesomeness, this Sunday night, 7pm, Busby's East, a wickedly cheap $10. Love it.
