Thu April 5 at 8:00 PM, Bigfoot West
10939 Venice Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
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!

I'm up for it if it fits into my schedule. (Can't do Tuesday nights/others vary.) I live Downtown, but I'm in Culver City a lot - Bigfoot West works for me.

My honey and I just got a townhome in Mar Vista, so this is perfect. Unfortunately, my March is pretty much scotched already.

I'm up for this, and I love Bigfoot West.

I'm up for it, too. Anyone want to suggest a day (say, the first week of April)?

I'll be out of the country until April 3, but I'll come out for drinking/food if this happens after that date.

I'm in the Palms area, so I'm definitely up for this.

Either of those currently appear good for me!

This sounds like fun. I like Fri the 6th, but it might be a little crowded that day.

Fridays tend to be packed there. I've seen it almost deserted on Tues/Weds/Thurs.

Should we say Thursday the 5th?
posted by GilloD at 2:01 PM on March 22, 2012

Yeah, let's go for it. Thanks for inititating this, GilloD -- I've been thinking we needed a MeFite Nite for awhile!
posted by scody at 2:05 PM on March 22, 2012

Make it Wednesday the 4th, and I'm there. I could also possibly do Friday, but as mentioned, it can get crowded.

BFLW has a fantastic happy hour, so if we can aim for sometime between 7 and 9, that would be great.

7-9 on Thursday would work great for me. I'm fine with Friday as well.
posted by yasaman at 3:25 PM on March 22, 2012

Thursdays are better for me, but I will sway with the group decision.
posted by mykescipark at 9:53 PM on March 22, 2012

I'm down, and would prefer Thursday as well! It has been too long, LA MeFites!

7-9 Thursdays! Done & Done. Putting this up to the main page in a few.
posted by GilloD at 4:19 PM on March 23, 2012

Gah, this is the one Thursday I'm out of town. I am definitely interested in the next one, though.

7-9 Thursday works for me.
posted by ljshapiro at 9:39 PM on March 23, 2012

Can't do it. I work until 10pm on Thursdays.

Bullshit Klang. BULL SHIT. The one time I'll be in LA for the next century and y'all are having a meetup and you won't be there? Why do you bedevil me so sir. WHY? Quit your job immediately.

(Or just come after 10, i'll be there cuz I'm on Vay-Kay Yall)
posted by Potomac Avenue at 11:19 AM on March 26, 2012

PA, how long are you in town? Thursday nights are pretty much the absolute worst for me, because I work until 10pm, then have to be at work at 9am the next morning.
posted by klangklangston at 12:03 PM on March 26, 2012

My lady and I will be in town for a week so I'd love to have an unofficial beer with you some other time too, klanger. Let's email!
posted by Potomac Avenue at 3:02 PM on March 26, 2012

Bigfoot West's Happy Hour starts at 5. So if you want to get extra drinking in, you can arrive then. I hope to.
posted by skewedoracle at 10:27 AM on March 28, 2012

I'd like to come and hang out with strangers from the internet! I'll probably be there around 7pm unless something catastrophic happens at work.

I've never met any of you though. Anything I should look for besides a pink sweatshirt? Or do I just introduce myself to first group of people awkwardly avoiding eye contact as this has been my experience with most internet meetups?
posted by subject_verb_remainder at 1:03 PM on April 3, 2012

I usually look for a large-ish group of people with a mixture of beards, glasses, interesting shirts, good taste in beer, and at least one rather nice-looking camera. Doesn't take long.

I was trying to be more proactively helpful, but there are surprisingly few photo sets of Angelenos attached to our previous meetups.

If I make it (work and health issues may intervene; I'd say it's 50/50), I'm tall and will most likely be gesticulating wildly.
posted by scody at 11:48 PM on April 4, 2012

I'll vouch for scody being unmistakeable.

Sorry I'm missing this one - first night of my Gender & Sexuality in Pop Culture class and we run til 10. On the eastside. Booo.
posted by ApathyGirl at 6:03 PM on April 5, 2012

Finishing up a few things at work, I'll be there about 7:45/8, pink sweatshirt, red & white plaid, alarmingly handsome
posted by GilloD at 7:17 PM on April 5, 2012

So many cute and geeky 20somethings here tonight that I'm actually vexed. I shall proceed to get drunk on the patio until further notice.
posted by mykescipark at 7:28 PM on April 5, 2012

I am here, wearing a metafilter blue cardigan and standing just inside the bar next to the patio with one, possibly two other of our number.
posted by estherbester at 7:34 PM on April 5, 2012

If I come it will be late, Downtown eating dinner and not too far from Culver City but just sat down. Will people still be toasting at 1030? Hope so! Either way, <3 LA.

We have commandeered the rear right enclave! Look for the scary disco ball with elk horns. (?!)
posted by mykescipark at 8:08 PM on April 5, 2012

Was feeling a bit under the weather, so headed home straight from work. Hope you all have a great time!
posted by scody at 8:30 PM on April 5, 2012

Hope yr still there! Im on the way!
