FILM: Tonight the documentary "Black White + Gray: A Portrait of Sam Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe" screens at Cinefamily and the film's director James Crump will be there for a Q&A. The film explores the relationships between Robert Mapplethorpe and Patti Smith, who shared a studio near the Chelsea Hotel, and the curator Sam Wagstaff. The film reminisces about CBGB's, Studio 54 and the emerging gay/S&M subculture. In addition to Crump, Britt Salvesen, LACMA's head curator of photography, and Frances Terpak, the curator of photographs at the Getty Research Institute.

BEER: If you're interested in bottomless beer on a Sunday night, head over to City Tavern in Culver City, where there will be an all-you-can-drink craft beer garden starting at 9 am. There will be 22 California beers on draft, and KCRW's Raul Campos will be spinning. Tickets are $45, and it will be $10 off if you eat dinner before 9. For more information and weekend eats, check out our post.

MUSIC: If you've got nothing else to do on a Sunday night, there's always a Lady Gaga concert.
