Meetup on an LA Weeknight Aug. 24-26 (Weds. through Fri.)?

I'm taking a trip up the West Coast and was wondering if any Mefites want to meet up! I've only been to LA once before and saw all the touristy Hollywood stuff (and had In-N-Out :D), so I think someone else will probably have to propose the place/activity . . . [more inside]

Museum of Jurassic Technology meetup?

After reading not_on_display's genius post about the Museum of Jurassic Technology, I realized it's been too long since I've been. Time for a meetup! [more inside]

Georgian Soup Dumplings and All The Games

Citizens! I have a sudden and incontrovertibly ingenious plan, inspired by a Jonathan Gold review on KCRW of the Tumanyan Khinkali Factory, describing the khinkali as a "near peak soup dumpling experience." Given that this is in Glendale, and thus in vague proximity (2ish miles) to MeFite favorite GameHaus Cafe (previously and previouslier)...well, you can imagine my excitement! [more inside]

Shall we play a game(haus)?

I had a great time at the last Game Night, but the only problem is we all had so much to talk about we never got around to the game part before it was time to go! [more inside]

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]

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]

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.

Ars gratia artis!

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.

Los Angeles Euchre Meetup

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. And if you don't know how to play, and are curious how under certain circumstances the Jack of Clubs is actually a Spade, and vice versa (well, quad-versa when considering the red cards), read on. You'll love spending time in the barn. [more inside]
