Los Angeles Meetup: Friday, December 15th

Is this the last ever Los Angeles Meet-up? Hard to say. Why risk it? The date is unfortunately non-negotiable since Sepia Mutiny’s Los Angeles Bureau is closing its doors in December and relocating to our newly purchased state-of-the-art blogging facility in Houston, Texas (no state taxes in TX).

Time: After 7p.m. (and until the cops come knocking).

Place: TBD. Check this post early next week (or check our Events Tab).

Who: Last time we had like 40-50 people show up and it was a damn good time (ended at 2a.m.).

I will post another reminder on the Tuesday before the meet-up. Mark you calendars now. Last time we met at the Golden Gopher. I’m still checking out options for this one.

RSVP to me if you can come abhi [at] sepiamutiny . com

    NOOOOOOOO! you have to keep an outpost in LA, you have to keep the meetups coming for LA, how else are we going to get our hollywood desis to join the mutiny??? This is just too sad to be true!!! sob cry

  2. The weather has literally been perfect in Chicago since last week, yo

    yes and is going down going forth.

    And as for the LA outpost being closed, Abhi, we can even come up with virtual outposts (the bunker residents appointing local mutineer to man a virtual outpost in the wild) ;)

    It is going to be freezing end of this week…but I am still up for a meetup.

    Ennis, is it spring yet? I am waiting for the next Chicago meetup. We should have a fun formal type like the one Anna has planned for DC in december.

    good idea. we should be having more meetups in more places, not less. ;)

  5. You just have to kill my buzz, don’t you?

    I am not the only one who said that :)

  6. All this talk and no RSVPs yet? Come on, y’all – whose coming? I’m not making any goody bags this time around – but if someone didn’t get one last time, I may have be up to make a couple of extras…. ;-)

  7. Texas represent! Hopefully, we’ll finally have some meetups in the vicinity. Yay!

    Ive always wanted to live in texas. unfortunately wall street isnt there.

  8. relocating to our newly purchased state-of-the-art blogging facility in Houston, Texas

    For reeeeeealllz? Wow, can’t wait for the first HTX meetup–yeehaw!!!

  9. I will RSVP with a tentative yes for the LA meetup. Tentative only because I have so many things going on right now that I’ll have a better idea closer to the date.

  10. I hope everyone has a good time like last. I’ll be over the Pacific watching a movie or sleeping on a Singapore Airlines flight.

    All who thought they’d go, but didn’t last time: GO!

  11. can’t wait for the first HTX meetup–yeehaw!!!

    I can see it. R.D. Burman chopped and screwed. Ayurvedic cough syrup. Candy colred Accords.

  12. I’ll make it out in time for my first, and SM’s last, LA meetup. Am also in the middle of finals, but will bring my stressed-out, studying self to the bar (?) for a merry time.

  13. A party based on an online readership…is that entirely safe? I barely trust the people I met in real life let alone online.

  14. I’ll be there.

    PS to Abhi — try Cabo on Wilshire, El Coyote on Beverly, or Nirvana for safety. Last time, downtown was simply too traffic-ky to make way across town (unless it was the Standard rooftop). Preferring more divey places, Santa Monica or the westside may be easier for others?

  15. builder- please carpool with someone this time around!

    Dimpal? Satish? Mad Guru? Arun? VMN Rao? Sumit? Rumi? Hanish? Prashant? Lata? Ravi the lurker? Gaurav? Pawan? Sharat? Sachin? Rajan? Lavanya? Shivani? 1 /26? Kurma? Anu? Ami?

    People with finals have no excuse- you should be done by the time the meetup rolls around, And it’s a Friday! The Perfect study break!

  16. Saira, since Abhi recruits some of the SM readership from UCLA, I wonder if you could be one Saira with a world-famous last name that I met at UCLA last year. By any chance, did you once escort another desi girl from that treehouse thing to your dorm room and then through UCLA’s student ghetto on a wild goose cell phone chase to get to a party during a UC environmental convergence?

  17. Ay, Abhi good luck finishing. I’ll probably be in India and < > due to my month-long stay missing the meetup. Don’t make it the last one. Please? Everyone, just come back. Blog a little from LA, then have a meetup. Keep your proud readership of the southern contingent of the golden state. Of course, all of you are welcome to join me for a Goa meetup. SM destination meetups anybody?

  18. I can’t make it, taz. Too much deadline-type-crap flying around. Friday don’t mean nothin’ to me anymore… But I really hate missing this meetup. The last one was incredible. Believe me, if I had any chance, I’d be there. What’s the location?

  19. ..all of you are welcome to join me for a Goa meetup

    sigh..for those midnight masses in cotton shirts and nankatais

  20. If you’re still lookin’ for spots, I second Terence’s suggestion. Support desi-owned business & check out Redwood Bar & Grill in downtown LA? New, creative, warm ambience, great for big groups and good reviews, too. You probably already know him but, if not, can put you in touch w/ the owner.

  21. Oh yeah, forgot to reply to this, yes of course I will be there. We’ll miss you and Crazy this time around Guju Dude…:(. I second the idea that we should still meet up now and then, even if our pal Abhi has forsaken us :p.

  22. You all can still use the events tab to coordinate a get together, it just wont be an official “meetup” is all …
