Meetup behind the Orange Curtain?

Anyone in Orange County interested in meeting in early November?

Isn't that where the rich MTV people hang out with Gwen Stefani?

there are more than 1 orange county in the US (& in china), but i could drive over from the 909 (now 951), depending on time & date

Actually, it's the birthplace of Richard Nixon, inspiration for Desperate Housewives, and a place with very few orange trees.

I'm game. if I can make the meetup, I will prove every one of klangklangston's OC stereotypes wrong.

It's a bit of a trip for me, but if it's on a weekend, I might be able to make it.

If nothing else, it'll give me the opportunity to rope some of the Orange County crowd into attending the LA Meetup.

How does November 3rd (Sat) sound?

Any suggestions on a place? Possibly a North county location to make it easier for out of county attendees?

Aye, just say the word.

Somewhere in Fullerton?

I live near downtown Fullerton, and I don't know if we'll be able to find each other (or parking there)

What about Oggi's Pizza & Brewery in Orange (Tustin Avenue) or the District Lounge in old town Orange?

The Orange Curtain??

I thought that was some bizarre, post-Soviet Ukraine reference. Colour me disappointed. Not that I could make it. I just like the idea of a MeFi meetup in Kiev or Lviv.

District Lounge sounds good to me. I will try to become "swanky cool" by the meetup date but no promises.

So, shall we say. Saturday Nov 3rd - 6pm @ the District Lounge in Orange
Address: 223 W Chapman Ave, Orange, CA 92866
Near the Orange Circle. There are a few public parking lots around the circle.

How are we going to find each other...Am I going to have to wear an orange shirt?
