Westfield Culver City announces Westfield Buzz TV

As someone who doesn't live in Culver City, but spends most of their day there, I'm always on the look out for things to do while I'm here.  Over the past few weeks I've been fortunate enough to stumble onto a series of events & appearances at Westfield Culver City.  Everything from NBA players releasing limited edition sneakers to autograph sessions with musicians & actors.
