Attention: Los Angles(L.A.) - Gathering May 17, 2007 3:03 PM   Subscribe

Attention: Los Angles(L.A.) I'm flying in and staying around the airport and working near the Staples center for a few days. I'd like to organize a meet up and meet some American mefites. If some one would be so kind as to pick a place and time I would love to show up and tell you stories about Canada or something.

I should mention that I'll be in town from this Wednesday the 23rd to Tuesday the 30th.

Also I have no car.

No car in L.A.?
Dude, you're doomed.

And over Memorial Day weekend? (That's an American Monday holiday)
Tell whomever you're working for to postpone a week and pop for a rental car. Wendell's orders.

When on the 30th do you leave? That's when I get in.

I am new to LA and dunno where to pick to meet, but would like to hear Canada stories. So if someone else selects a place...I'm up for it. I'm on the west side, free on the weekend and Memorial Day. If no one else steps up I'll pick somewhere closer to the date.

joelf, how does your company expect you to travel from LAX to Staples Center (~7 miles) each day without a car? That's some serious bus-riding, probably an hour or more in each direction, or the cab charges will be equal to the costs of a rental car.

Don't believe his Canadian stories. He's a Canuck, talking to Americans, he can't be trusted! He'll tell you lies about the igloos and moose and Mounties and Canadian girls and beer and everything!

Trust me, you can't trust him.

Oh, the Canadian Girls... ahhh...

< / fellow canadian girl>

Would meet but alas, I'm in a more north part of California and without a car - hence my need to sympathize!

I have a car now. So i'm up for anything.

If someone can pick a favorite spot and a time that'd be it!
