Craft Night at CAFAM: Papermaking Workshop with Mark Montano

Last month jetlagaddict had the great idea to post an IRL for the block printing class at the Craft and Folk Art Museum. I had so much fun I've signed up for the Papermaking Workshop with Mark Montano and meant to post it here earlier. [more inside]

ASSSSCAT: Upright Citizen's Brigade improv show at the UCB Theatre

There are lots of great shows every week at UCB, but the logistics of a UCB meet-up are complicated: post-work traffic is a problem, especially for earlier shows; there are no physical tickets; people may be reluctant to buy tickets a few weeks out; and many of the most popular shows sell out almost immediately so proposing a meet-up once the monthly schedule is announced may well be too late. ASSSSCAT is perfect because we can choose a date at our convenience, the show is free, it's on a Sunday, which has been a good day for meet-ups, and it's not too late for a school night.
  • WHAT: ASSSSCAT, one of the best-known improv groups.
  • WHERE: UCB Theatre, Hollywood
  • WHEN: Sundays, 7:30*
  • COST: Free!
*Show starts at 7:30, and I think people start lining up around 6:30. [more inside]

West Los Angeles: August 3rd @ Sawtelle and Olympic for delicious food.

So, over in the August August meetup thread, we've reached a consensus about meeting up at Sawtelle and Olympic in West LA for delicious Japanese cuisine on August 3rd. Let's plan it.

Update! Let's meet outside Tsujita Annex at 5pm on Sunday! If we have too many for Tsujita/Tsujita Annex, we can evolve from there.
Update #2! I mistyped '5' instead of '3.' Meetup is intended to be on Sunday, August 3rd. Updating now!
Update #3! It's been one of those weeks. 5pm, not 8pm. Apparently that's where the 5 in the date came from, heh. Cue nervous chuckle. [more inside]

Meetup ideas for an august August?

Since the Getty Center IRL has yet to lock in a date for August; I'm going to un-RSVP to make the 10th more available so I thought we could try brainstorming some other ideas for the other upcoming weekends here. A few people are interested in catching a Dodgers game, and I've brought up going to catch the free UCB improv ASSSSCAT, which is free on Sundays. There's also rescheduling Ethiopian Food, and lots of other Art/Food crawl options. Any other ideas?

How about some Ethiopian food?

At last Sunday's dinner there was some interest in going for Ethiopian food and Sunday, July 6th seems to be a good date. I can't make this official without a venue, so here are links to the restaurants that have been mentioned: Nyala (open until 9:30) Messob (open until 11:00) Meals by Genet (open until 9:00) If you have a preference leave a comment. I'll wait until Sunday evening to post the official IRL, so at least that will give everyone a week's notice. [more inside]

DTLA Indian Fusion Gastropub: I like all of those things!

Something to hold us over until the Watts Tower meetup in July, how about a trip to Badmaash, the awesome Indian gastropub in Downtown? Looks as if June 22nd works for more people. I'm also guessing earlier will make it easier for us to all get in, so I'm thinking 6 PM. Let me know if that doesn't work well for y'all. [more inside]

MeFi L.A. Museum & Art Crawl Part 3: Watts Towers

Let's go to Watts Towers! The Watts Towers structure consists of seventeen major sculptures of steel, covered with mortar and embellished by decorative finishings of mosaic tiles, glass, clay, shells, and rock. This folk art employs assemblage construction. There are three tall spires, several small towers, two walls, gazebo, patio, ship, and other structures. In addition to the towers, the The Watts Towers Arts Center is the home of International Ethnic Instrument Collection consisting of 144 primarily non-western instruments collected from around the world.

get (sweets/coffee/records/hype!) at Leisure Market!

Hey all-- looks like local record label Innovative Leisure is putting together a very musically-oriented vendor fair, with some great DJs from funk/rare-things maestro Egon to the dubstep dons of Smog (and a rare appearance by the legendary create digger and beat-maker, Madlib). It's happening tomorrow in Downtown. Since I work in the area, I'll probably walk to this thing, so would anyone like to meet up at Semi Sweet Bakery, get their (delicious) version of a cronut and head on over? Schedule of performers follows :) [more inside]

Los Angeles MeFi: Assemble!

Hola LA MeFi, We're meeting up Bigfoot West on Thursday, April 5th. They have a happy hour between 7 and 9, so we're gonna start the meet somewhere in there and keep going if we prove to be interesting enough company. I'll probably pop in around 8/8:30 and I have this bright pink sweatshirt that has inadvertently become my trademark and you can find me that way. There's a kind of corner booth in the back right that tends to empty-ish even when busy, so it might make sense to try and say Hi there. Any Q's, just send me a MeMail!
