Dear the fine folks of los angeles:

I challenge you to a meet-up! It's been quite a while since one was organized and it's high time that another one take place.

Okay, I'll bite. Boardner's in Hollywood? Sometime next week?

Yeah! I'm sad that I missed the last one.

I'm in. Boardner's is cool

forallmankind says he'll go...

eek! I didn't know everyone would want to do something so soon.

I am much better off doing something on the weekend after next.

sound like a better plan? it would allow us more time to co-ordinate our wardrobe choices.

I can't be the only one who felt he was being challenged to punch the mayor. Can I?

Hollywood is a madhouse on the weekends -- it would be murderous to try to get parking on a Friday or Saturday night, methinks. I'd say a weeknight evening for Boardner's, or a different location for a weekend (the Golden Gopher downtown seemed to work well last time...but I can't remember if that was a weekend or weeknight gathering.)

In any case, someone pick a date -- scodyboy and I want to get up to Big Sur in the next few weeks, so I'll try to work around a meetup date.

The 20th SUCKs for me. Most of the rest of next week is still open though.

The Golden Gopher was a cool place but not great for photographs if people are looking for that kind of thing.

I'm in. I can pretty much walk to Boardner's from home, so that location is fine with me. Shall we tentatively say Wednesday the 19th? That way Hollywood weekend parking is avoided, and we can accomodate willnot's conflict on the 20th.

If people want to do something on the weekend instead (as was punch_the_mayor's request), may I suggest something in West Hollywood? There is an inexpensive parking structure which always has a shit-ton of spaces on King's Road and Santa Monica, and there are many fine dining/drinking establishments within a couple of blocks.

The 19th is 50/50 for me (I'll be radioactive that day -- for reals! I'll tell everyone the story!), so I vote for the_bone's suggestion of doing something in parking-ample West Hollywood that Friday or Saturday night (21st or 22nd). Care to suggest an establishment, Monsieur Bone? (And I presume spacekitty will be joining us, too?)
posted by scody at 1:35 PM on April 12, 2006

Basix is awesome... good food, good drinks, not a lot of parking drama (I'll check to make sure they can accomodate a large party). Saturday the 22nd, anyone?
posted by the_bone at 1:46 PM on April 12, 2006

(Oh, and Space Kitty says she'll join us, schedule permitting)
posted by the_bone at 1:47 PM on April 12, 2006

oh yeah, didn't we have brunch at Basix once? It was tasty. I'm in for the 22nd.
posted by scody at 1:55 PM on April 12, 2006

That's right; it was a couple of days after I moved here... that was a busy time, and the whole brunch episode slipped my mind.

I'm going to post something to MoFi as well.
posted by the_bone at 2:16 PM on April 12, 2006

So, what time will work for everyone? I don't think they take reservations, so we'll have to try and not be on "Los Angeles time." :) If people want to do 8:00, that would be cool; it's a good time for the folks who will not have eaten dinner prior, and early enough that the partiers can still go out afterwards.
posted by the_bone at 2:27 PM on April 12, 2006

weekend/week after . . . I just wanted to say that I'm pretty unavailable next week but anything the week after (the week starting the 24th) is fine.

wednesday the 26th at boardner's/basix (I haven't been to either so I am not one to be making decisions) sound good?
posted by punch_the_mayor at 2:30 PM on April 12, 2006

OK... how about Wednesday 4/26 at Basix? 8:00 PM.
posted by the_bone at 5:25 PM on April 12, 2006

Sounds good.
posted by scody at 6:10 PM on April 12, 2006

Unfortunately for you LA MeFites, I'm down here in SoCal THIS WEEK! Weep for the missed opportunity! Hahahaha--

--err, I didn't bring my cameras with me anyway, so um, yeah. *shuffles away quietly*
posted by DaShiv at 6:39 PM on April 12, 2006

DaShiv: I just emailed you.
posted by the_bone at 7:39 PM on April 12, 2006

I'm down! sounds like a plan!
posted by punch_the_mayor at 10:53 PM on April 12, 2006

Sounds good to me:)
That's practically the only reason I check MeTa these days - in hopes of an L.A. meetup.
posted by Radio7 at 1:07 AM on April 13, 2006

Huh, that actually works for me too. Count me in!
posted by speicus at 1:54 AM on April 13, 2006

I'll try and make it. Can someone e-mail me directions from Pasadena area? Thanks in advance!
posted by 6:1 at 6:51 PM on April 15, 2006

Never mind, a friend gave me directions.
posted by 6:1 at 9:34 PM on April 15, 2006

Hey, I'd kind of like to attend too. Maybe. If I have time to study up on MeFi so that I don't feel left out when y'all commence with the in-jokes.
posted by PY at 6:47 PM on April 16, 2006

I'll try for it too, since I still regret missing the last meet-up.
posted by maryh at 2:19 AM on April 17, 2006

Let's see... so far, we have punch_the_mayor, specius, scody, menace303, forallmankind, willnot, radio7, 6:1, PY, maryh, Space Kitty and myself, as well as mandyman and anatinus from MoFi.

I'll post a reminder thread on Monday or so.
posted by the_bone at 6:36 PM on April 22, 2006

ah, just realized I'll be in SF on Wednesday, 4/26. Will try to meetup another time, and hopefully check out Basix one day too.
posted by PY at 11:41 AM on April 23, 2006

Argh! Schedule has changed for me, I am ducking out. Sorry folks. Another time . . .
