Grand Central Market Game Nights -- Take two!

After checking in with Celsius1414 I'm re-posting this since it didn't get off the ground last time.

Food! Drink! Games! Friends! Food and drink and games and friends at the same time!

----

I stumbled across a mention of gaming nights at Grand Central Market in DTLA and tracked down this press release and then this page.

Game Night at Grand Central Market

Looking to unwind after a tough day at work? Searching for fast, amazing fare to satisfy your foodie cravings? Planning a non-cliche date night? Whatever your Downtown LA dilemma, the city's oldest food hub has your back.

Enter Game Night -- eat, drink and play every Thursday until 9 pm. Grab dinner and drinks from our late hours vendors over an assortment of classic and new games: ping-pong, cornhole toss, Jenga, Uno, Cards Against Humanity, Scrabble, and many more. Just head over to the Hill St. Platform to get started.

We broached the subject of a gaming night at our last meetup (mmmm ramen), so this "proposed" post is more of a means to continue that conversation than saying it should be here at GCM necessarily.

Update 9/5: The consensus during our Ethiopian food meetup conversation seemed to be that with everybody being spread out, it's difficult to make a game night plan on work nights. If someone else wants to propose game/trivia/movie meetups for their individual environs, that might be the better way to go. [more inside]

Field trip: the Museum of Jurassic Technology TAKE TWO

Reposting from previous event! Chicainthecity most courteously reminded me that the event needed updating, and we discussed NOVEMBER 8th as the most likely afternoon. The consensus is now November 22nd: let us know in the thread! The Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City is a place that engenders love and and serious confusion, perhaps in equal measures. It is a palace of many mythical wonders and it was proposed as one of the next meetup locations. It's open until 6:00 PM on Saturdays; the cafe offers complimentary tea and cookies until 5:00. (It is also close to the Center for Land Use Interpretation, which is equally a palace of wonders if you like scholastic text and resource allocation. They also have quite a cool map of points of interest in the area around their Culver City branch.) [more inside]

Craft Night at CAFAM: Papermaking Workshop with Mark Montano

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]

The One Where MeFi LA Visits the Shuttle

*EDIT* I changed the meetup time to 2:30 since that's when we'll be meeting, but you should still buy tickets for 3:00!

Short-notice Los Angeles Meetup: Backyard food and home studio fun recording session at my house tomorrow (Saturday) or Sunday?

Does anyone want to come to my place, make some food, have some drinks, goof around in the home recording studio, and then post the results to MeFiMusic? We live in a small house in Montrose but have a nice shady backyard and deck and a good kitchen. The best time and day for me would be tomorrow (8/4) or Sunday (8/5) - ideally in the late afternoon or evening. [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!

L.A. Meetup, Thursday, June 9, 2011

I'm coming into town before MaxFunCon and I'd like to meetup with some L.A. MeFites on Thursday, June 9, 2011. I'm staying at a hotel on Fairfax near the Farmer's Market, but I'm willing to drive if the destination doesn't require me to navigate tiny streets and hunt for parking (I'm a country-boy at heart.) Confirmed! Meetup at 7pm at Loteria Grill at Farmers Market.

The Big Parade is a two-day walk through Los Angeles that will start in downtown, at the famous Angel's Flight Stairway, and finish at the Hollywood Sign above Beachwood Canyon. Day One ends - and Day Two begins - at the famous music Music Box Stairs - site of the Oscar-winning Laurel & Hardy film of the same name - in Silverlake. It will take place May 21 and 22, 2011. There’s also going to be a prologue on Friday, May 20, led by Bob Inman, covering the stairways between Eagle Rock and downtown. [more inside]

With as many native upper midwesterners that have emigrated to Los Angeles, there should be a lot more Euchre played around these parts. But, there's not. And we need to fix that.
