LA Meetup #3 - What's the Buzz? Tell Me What's Happening![edit]

I just learned about the Meetups today. It's been about three weeks since #2, and most LA Meetup references point to it as if it's still upcoming. Is #3 in the works? John Rigali 02:19, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

I just learned about the Meetups today. Did meetup#2 ever happen? I would like to meet some fellow Wikipedians. I work in the city of LA, so it would be convenient for me.—GraemeMcRaetalk 05:21, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
I had to bail on the last Wiki Meetup, because of a professional exam. Eh, there is a user named Shalov who seemed to have spearheaded the effort last time. I wonder if he's about? --Sirimiri 03:58, 24 November 2005 (UTC)
I'd love to go. Is it going to be around the winter holiday, or afterward?--Rockero 16:25, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
We can choose either of two different tacks here: either encourage Shalov to spearhead #3, or one of us volunteer to do it. I vote for encouraging Shalov. John Rigali 04:45, 24 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm Down! (can it be before the ides of April?)Dev1n 06:35, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
I'll go, when is it? -- NatsukiGirl\talk 06:40, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
Screw it, let's just meet in mid-April. Say, in Little Tokyo on Saturday the 15th? Around 7 PM? I know that's not very procedural, but hey, at least it offers a time and place. Yea/Nay? Counter proposals? --Sirimiri 02:49, 29 March 2006 (UTC)
If I remember, there is a little cafe not too far from the Japanese American National Museum--the last meeting was at a cafe que no?--Rockero 03:57, 29 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm interested. I don't live in L.A, but I do commute to L.A every Thursday to go to MOCA. Could we make it somewhere close to the Red or Gold Line? - Hbdragon88 04:50, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
Being that it's Easter weekend, I am going to be out of town for this date --Sirimiri 15:57, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

It's time for LA Meetup #3[edit]

The only questions are when and where. Should we hold it at the same place as the other two, or should we try someplace new? Should it be another weekend meetup, or should we try for a weekday meeting? 24 June is a Saturday roughly one month from now. I am proposing that as the meetup date just to start the ball rolling, although consensus could easily change that date. BlankVerse 05:25, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Having the meetup at Philippe's is good and central, though I'll also plug my local internet-enabled geek-friendly Nova Express Cafe which is in Hollywood. As for timing, if it were a little early on a Saturday (6ish?) people might be able to stop by on their way out to whatever evening plans they had. Otherwise I'd imagine a weeknight is better. I've no specific knowledge of my plans on the 24th but if this happens I'd do my best to show up... Metaeducation
I was at Philippe's all day, where were you guys? After eating the 10th French Dip Sandwich I was just bored. (Ok, just kidding...there was no consensus on time of day so I didn't show...shall we get the list of people who actually want to hang out and talk wiki and set this up through email??) Metaeducation 03:24, 25 June 2006 (UTC)
I'd still like to push for a meetup in the early afternoon on July 8, 2006. I know it's only 4 days off, but if people are local, maybe they can make it out to Phillipe's... any discussion about this at all?--Rockero 23:21, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
I work downtown, Rockero. What time did you have in mind? --Sirimiri 21:43, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
I don't know, around 1?--Rockero 22:18, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
Eh, World Cup match is at 12, both Saturday and Sunday. Lame, but I cannot miss either one :) Perhaps 5PM? That's more early evening, but what do you think? --Sirimiri 02:21, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
Mmmm....maybe on Sunday. But if nobody else is interested, it would probably be better to postpone the meetup. That way I can use my trip to take pictures for Wiki articles. 8)--Rockero 16:03, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
Let's postpone, until there is potentially more interest? --Sirimiri 16:54, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
Agreed.--Rockero 17:29, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
