SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Roughly 2,500 people made their way Saturday night into the Santa Monica High School Memorial Greek Amphitheater for the opening night of the third annual EatISeeIHear.

Couples of all ages, dogs of all breeds, and people from all the different areas in the Los Angeles County commuted to the city of Santa Monica with their lawn chairs, blankets, and coolers in hand to experience an event that only Angelenos seem to be capable of perfecting.

The event, which is produced by the Trailhead Marketing, Inc. is an experience filled with the best food trucks Los Angeles has to offer, a mini concert and a movie to top the night off.

The 19 week summer series kicked off with a delightful performance by the Los Angeles Indie-rock trio Derde Verde, setting the tone for what was to be a relaxed and laid back night. Complementing this performance was the romantic comedy movie 500 Days of Summer starring Zoey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The movie takes viewers on a tour visiting many monumental landmarks around Los Angeles.

The doors opened at 5:30 p.m. and early birds made their way onto the outdoor venue quickly seeking the best spot to place their lawn chairs and lay their blankets. But with the one-of-a-kind 3.5 story by 52-feet wide inflatable movie projection screen, it is considerably hard not finding a spot where watching the movie is great.

Also, EatISeeIHear encourages people to bring their well behaved pups with them to the outdoor event, making this the complete family experience that must be done this summer.

The substantial amount of food was fantastic and they obviously weren’t kidding when they chose to place “Eat” in their name. The event brings together a variety of food that undoubtedly will satisfy anyone’s complex cravings. From ice cream to sushi-burritos, EatISeeIHear has it all.

The trucks in attendance on opening night were: The Urban Oven, Me So Hungry, Jogasaki, The Lobos Truck, Hurricane Kitchen, Chancho’s Tacos, Peaches’ Smokehouse BBQ, Postcards CAS, Mandoline Grill, The Schmuck Truck, Yalla Truck, Farmer’s Belly, Currywurst, Coolhaus, B Sweet Mobile, and Brasil Kiss. They all gave those in attendance a little taste of Central American, Brazilian and Mediterranean cuisine, to name a few.

EatISeeIHear is a summer event that serves as an outdoor experience that takes place in different locations throughout Los Angeles for the now remaining 18 weeks. Children are welcome (just make sure to check the movie ratings before deciding to bring your kid(s)).
