LA meet-up reminder November 16, 2005 12:07 PM   Subscribe


This Thursday the 17th starting around 7pm!
At Tom Bergin's on Fairfax about 1.5 blocks south of Wilshire!
There's drinks, potentially food, and a parking lot!
You can tell it will be exciting because of all the exclamation points!!!

Or just because it sounds like a drunk post. But this doesn't pertain to me because Im in Minneapolis, so I'l shut up.

Shit. Damn. It just figures I'm no longer in LA, and that it's on my birthday. I'd totally get so many free drinks. And boobies. Boobies to write/draw many shoutouts on.

Tilt a few for me, and the City of the Lost; Angels or damned, either.

Ahhh! That's TOMORROW NIGHT???!?! I completely forgot!!!

I'm gonna be fangirling in line for Harry Potter tomorrow night. Have a great time and take lots of pictures.

As penance, I promise I will get DaShiv to come to the next one. He will make all of us look blond, tanned, and stacked.

I'll be there -- blond, tanned, and stacked.

Well, at least blond.

Well, now that my highlights are growing out, not so much even with the blond...

I think I'll probably make it.

Oh, lord. Deadlines are taking over my life. It depends how much I get done by then...

DaShiv succeeded making ME look blond, tanned, and stacked.

Likelihood of Wendellosity tomorrow night: 51%
I'm in the process of moving OUT of L.A., and had intended to be taking a load of household essentials to SLOtown that afternoon. If I do make it, attendees will be the first to learn of the new House of Wendell which will always have a couch for visiting MeFites to crash on (assuming I can raise enough money at the meetup to buy a couch).

Boo. I'm thursday night flaking too :(.

I'm hoping to make it, but that depends how much I can get done before 7ish. But damn, I really want to go to one of these things.

I'd better not be the only one there. I'm blowing off work, so you should too!
posted by speicus at 8:40 PM on November 16, 2005

I'm certainly going to be there, so there's at least two of us.

*crosses fingers that Space Kitty and willnot and others join us*

What are the chances for a mini-meetup the weekend of Dec. 2nd? I'll be in town for work.

I have what may be the most important job interview of my life tomorrow, so I'm staying in to prepare. Sorry. I'll make the next one, I promise!

ok, I'm in.

Sorry, I wanted to make it, but I just couldn't.

Well, fun was had... in attendance were me, scody, jonson and offmylawn, who graciously subsidized our alcohol and greasy food consumption. It turns out that scody and jonson have frighteningly similar taste in music. I mostly pestered people about what it's like to live in LA.

I hope that someone with better organizational skillz than me calls for another meetup soon so we can do it all over again and more people can join the fun!

Yeah, it was great -- thanks so much for getting the ball rolliing, speicus! And thanks to offmylawn for the beer and fries... and special thanks to jonson for being one of the few people I've ever met who understood completely and utterly why on earth I made a pilgrimage to Te Awamutu, New Zealand.
posted by scody at 11:42 PM on November 18, 2005

Yeah, it was definitely fun - I promise to attend future meetups, hopefully fellow Angeleno Mefites will come out of the woodwork over time.
