LA Meetup. Dear LA MeFites, let's have a meetup next weekend, on Saturday, July 28th! In case, you don't consider the success of the last one a good enough reason, DaShiv will be in town and wants to make good on his promise.

Being a relatively new LA resident, I hesitate to suggest an appropriate venue, so your ideas would be greatly appreciated. Bonus points if it's on the west side.

I'm a man of my word. And I'll be bringing my cameras this time around.

I am so looking forward to a few months from now when I can come to LA meetups. I'll be one of those annoying AZ transplants driving like a grandma's asshole come October. See y'all then!

Oh, shit! I'm gonna be in LA. Sweet.

I've heard the Mandrake is interesting, but I've never been.

Woo-hoo!! I'm in! Just call the time and place.

Probably can't make it -- a friend (also from the bay area!) will be in town and I think Saturday plans are already set. But if we can drop by, we will.

I would really like to go! Been dying to attend a meetup.

Returning from an out-of-town trip that night and have a gig the following morning... but I'll drop by for half an hour or so to say hi.

Wow. This is right around the corner from my apt. Guess I have no choice.

Though I've threatened this type of thing before...

Doap! Up in Seattle for the week...

I dropped by the Mandrake today, and it is pretty interesting. But, it is tiny...

I also did a sweep of the bars near where I live, and here are a couple of possibilities:

O'Brien's Irish Pub - nice, but crowded.

The Shack - zero atmosphere, but no crowds, and lots of parking.

Also, I guess we could always go back to Boardwalk 11.

So, any thoughts/votes, before I make an executive decision. :)

I'm getting in from Portland that night, so I may or may not be able to show up. 'Pends how exhausted I am.

I wish I could go, but there will be no more LA meet-ups for me. I just moved to Tucson.
posted by Four-Eyed Girl at 9:01 PM on July 22, 2007

We'll miss you, Four-Eyed Girl. Have fun in Tucson!

I hope you'll be able to make it, scody and fuzzbean.
posted by epimorph at 1:53 AM on July 23, 2007

OK, let's finalize the plans then.

Where: The Shack (2518 Wilshire Blvd. & 25th St., Santa Monica)
When: Saturday, July 28th, starting around 8 pm

If anyone would like a reminder, feel free to email me. I hope to see you there!

I'll try to make it, but my ma's in town that weekend. Plus, I might go to Anaheim to see the Tigers.
posted by klangklangston at 10:04 AM on July 23, 2007

I really want to come... but did it have to be the west side? I live in Silverlake... that's a bitch of a drive on a Saturday night...

I'll definitely try to make it though, I didn't see the last one until it was too late :(

I'll be near enough to be tempted, but sending a friend off to Dublin that very night.

I'm still at band camp in NC. But you kids have fun.
posted by speicus at 1:05 PM on July 24, 2007

Not in the mood to drive over the hill, but perhaps I'll send a cardboard cutout.
posted by davejay at 2:19 PM on July 25, 2007

Any of y'all play euchre?
posted by klangklangston at 3:37 PM on July 25, 2007

Only when my family members guilt me into it because they need a 4th player.
posted by mandymanwasregistered at 9:23 PM on July 25, 2007

Euchre is some kind of kinky drinking game y'all play in them flyover states, right?
posted by DaShiv at 2:41 AM on July 26, 2007

Only if you ain't man enough fer cornhole.
posted by Ambrosia Voyeur at 9:18 AM on July 26, 2007

Klang, I play Euchre like a mofo. And it appears we're neighbors.
posted by quite unimportant at 1:19 PM on July 26, 2007

Oh sweet! We are! I just got some Craigslist folks to play euchre last night, and we're looking to make it weekly. Plus, you're right near Fuzzbean and Coined too...
posted by klangklangston at 2:23 PM on July 26, 2007

I've never even heard of euchre before this thread but I'll kick all y'alls asses at rummy.
posted by Space Kitty at 9:38 AM on July 27, 2007

Game on.
posted by quite unimportant at 10:04 AM on July 27, 2007

Well, folks, as much as I wanted to come tonight, it looks like I'm just not going to be able to show up.

Oh well, I was really looking forward to it, but I feel like I'll definitely show up to the next one.

Have fun all!

It was a small, yet most excellent, meetup. Like many good things, it ended in karaoke.
posted by mandymanwasregistered at 2:32 AM on July 29, 2007

Dear LA MeFites:

Of all the new faces from the last LA meetup that I promised to photograph tonight, none of you dropped by take me up on my offer. So, no photographs from me this time around! Ironically, the six of us who were present turned it into one of the best meetups I've ever been to in terms of conversation and socializing. So it's too bad that you've missed out.

But still, I hate you all forever -- until the next meetup where every single one of you that missed this one will show up.

Your visiting photographer.

I should add that Mr and Ms quite unimportant were way cool.
posted by mandymanwasregistered at 12:24 PM on July 29, 2007

That was a blast, it was great seeing everyone again and lovely meeting the quite unimportant's. Also, I recommend The Gas Lite for all your drunken karaoke needs. Let's have more new faces next time!
posted by Space Kitty at 12:51 PM on July 29, 2007

Thanks guys! Had a great time meeting everyone and can't wait to see you all again.
