Los Angeles Meetup! October 28, 2009 12:04 PM   Subscribe

My dearest and most cherished Angelenos, let us welcome our dear friend Alnedra to the land of swimming pools and movie stars.

She will be here approximately from November 18th to 21st. She likes tea. Perhaps we can have a tea party!

Texas tea?

Black gold, that is.

By which, I mean a bubblin' crude.

Oil. I'm talking about unrefined petroleum. Does she like oil?

Still a few working wells in Long Beach, and I once worked in Carson (not named after Johnny) just down the street from a refinery in Wilmington. Fun place. What was the question? Can I go down to the see-ment pond now?

I'm potentially down. The only day I categorically can't do it is Thursday the 19th (I work that evening), and I'll do the obligatory agitation for a H'wood/Silver Lake meetup (the last tag notwithstanding).

I've recently converted to tea from coffee and I LOVE the idea of a tea party. I'm in!

I LOVE TEA and I love tea parties and I love tea rooms (though I am not so fond of tea baggers) and any of those dates works for me.

Alnedra is an anagram for "a LA nerd." This is a sign, people!!!

That's almost my birthday, but I don't know where I'm going to be around then, yet.

I'm interested, but I'll need a concrete time and place before I can confirm.

Awww, mandyman, thank you for posting this!

The 20th is a Friday, so that might be good? A place might be tougher though. Where can we go where they'll let us brew our own tea? I'll be bringing some pretty nice teas along, and while some of it is a belated birthday present for mandyman, I'm definitely bringing some extra that we can share. I just hope that customs officers don't think that I'm smuggling pot...

I wonder if we could brew tea here?

I was thinking we could meet at Casbah Cafe (on Sunset and Hyperion) for our tea (they have an assortment of food as well) and then if we're feeling so inclined, head across the street to Pazzo Gelato for dessert.

Casbah's menu. Or rather le menu, as they call it.

Okily dokily, so let's go there.

Casbah Cafe (Sunset at Hyperion)
Friday November 20th, 7:30pm

Parking pro-tip: look on Sunset or north of Sunset. It's all permit in the block south of Sunset.

Woo-hoo! I'm in!

Ill be flying back from Chicago that night (or not, depending on how things go), but if I am in town, I will try to make up your way.

I love tea. Oh god do I love tea. Drink it over coffee any day, anytime. Penciling into calendar now.

Got a last-minute trip to go see Space Kitten this weekend, so I'm gonna miss out. Have fun! Sorry to miss you, Alnedra!

(PS: Must do additional meetup - this place sounds awesome)

Hey hey heyyyyyy! (It's not Fat Albert.) I'm in!

I love Casbah - if I can make it I will. No one will know me but that's OK because I will buy your love.

Oook this Friday?? Hmmm. Maybe.

SF wants shoutouts. And a sidecar. Or maybe a G&T.
posted by ooga_booga at 7:05 PM on November 19, 2009

Ooh, I'm definitely going to try and make this. Sounds great!
posted by estherbester at 10:07 PM on November 19, 2009

I will not be there. I miiiiight pull myself away from PhD apps and term papers enough to go to my 10-year HS reunion. I may not. Have fun, my dears!

Aw, boyfriend is sick as a dog and I am being summoned home to make chicken soup and go to the pharmacy. So sorry to miss it -- have a lovely tea party, all!
posted by scody at 5:07 PM on November 20, 2009

Yay! That was fun. Alnedra, it was nice to meet you! Gents, I expect your feminine hygiene essays on Monday.
