E3 June 11-13
Unlike PAX or locally-based IndieCade, E3 was never really meant for gamers. After all, this video game mecca that glues salivating gamers around the world to their computers was technically an industry-only event. But lucky for you, the video game convention is offering a limited number of consumer passes. Even if you don’t manage to procure a badge, there are enough party tents, promo trucks and swag bags hanging around Figueroa to make a visit worthwhile—and once you’ve seen the gridlocked crowds and endless lines of the sensory overload inside, that might just be the best way to enjoy E3. www.e3expo.com/

K-Town Night Market June 14-15
Hear live music on stage, and shop for Korean food and products at the Ktown Night Market at Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools. No pets. Children age 3 and younger are free. https://www.ktownnightmarket.com/
