Los Angeles: Farmers Market meetup?

Mon July 16 at 6:00 PM, Farmers Market
Fairfax / 3rd, Los Angeles, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
dobbs is in town through July and I don't think we should let him leave till we've feted him at Farmers Market! How about one evening next week? (per dobbs, Tuesday the 17th doesn't work, but the rest of the week is up for discussion.)
In the past, we've usually met at the tables between Loteria Grill and The French Crepe Co. (map here), so let's do that again. Memail me if you'd like to exchange phone numbers for texting/coordinating purposes. Gathering to start around 6-ish; Farmers Market is open till 9:00.

I'm available every night but Saturday next week.

Thursdays work best for me because of my work schedule, but I can likely swing by for a little while any night next week.

Would it be out of place to ask if anyone cared to put their Euchre face on?

My Euchre face is always on as the result of a horrific Farmer's Hand accident back in '89.

Saturday's no good for me, either, and I don't know what my schedule is going to be like other than that, but I'll try to be there!

My schedule looks pretty good. Count me in.

Warren and I will be there!

Sunday and Monday work. We could maybe bring the_bone along if it's Sunday night.

I'm in too!

I prefer weeknights to weekends since it's on the way home from work for me. So I'm going to specifically suggest either Monday the 16th or Thursday the 19th (with the gathering starting anytime after 6:00 pm). Show of hands?

The real bug in the IRL alerts is that I didn't get a notice that someone had mentioned Euchre.

I can do either, but Thursday would be a little easier.

Monday's better for me — I can't make it to Thursday until around 8:30.

Either fine with me.
posted by dobbs at 6:29 AM on July 12, 2012


As long as I'm not killed by deadlines, Monday would be dandy.
posted by mykescipark at 10:41 AM on July 12, 2012


I could probably do Monday night. Whee!
posted by the_bone at 5:15 PM on July 12, 2012


Okay, I think the balance is tipping a little toward Monday, then. (I hope you Thursday folks can make it, too!)
posted by scody at 5:26 PM on July 12, 2012


Either Monday or Thursday works for me, but Monday is a bit better.

Aw, I have class monday nights. Sadface.

Is there some place in particular in the Famer's Market you guys usually meet?I've only been there once but remember it maze-like and sprawling...
posted by dobbs at 9:01 AM on July 15, 2012


Usually right in front of Loteria, right?
posted by carsonb at 9:57 AM on July 15, 2012


Hey, I'm leaving work a bit late. Will test traffic and see how terrible it is to get over there. Can't stay long but would love to see some 'fites.
posted by fake at 6:02 PM on July 16, 2012


Between Loteria and Crepe Company, right?

A husband's job is never done. Maybe next time. Good tacos though.

Nice to meet you all -- ljs, good to see you again.

Oy my stupid autocorrect comments.

Lovely to see you all! Thanks again for the ride home Laura.

Nice to meet you finally dobbs.

Sorry I was so disjointed and possibly surly. I didn't even have words for several of you. Sorry ljshapiro and the_bone. =(
I have no excuse except I was at the end of a very long day. Will try to be more sociable next time around.
posted by carsonb at 12:49 PM on July 17, 2012


I'm so disappointed that I wasn't able to make it. I realize that there have been several L.A. meetups in a short time lately, but let's do it again soon.
posted by The World Famous at 12:54 PM on July 17, 2012


Sorry to coordinate and not show, everyone. I think dobbs may have mentioned that we said goodbye to one of our dogs over the weekend, so I didn't think I'd be up for much socializing. Hope to see folks again soon.
posted by scody at 3:18 PM on July 17, 2012


Great to see everybody last night. Carsonb - nothing to apologize for! Driving everybody home was my pleasure. Let's do it again soon!
posted by ljshapiro at 5:02 PM on July 17, 2012


Yeah, don't sweat it, carsonb. You looked pretty tired -- nice of you to come out all, given that. Good to meet you as well.

And yes, ljs, thank you for the ride!
