OK. Let's get this set.

It actually works better the other way around... let us know when you're in town, then we'll plan to meet. Anytime before mid August works for me.

Well, Venice is not so bad... But then there's also Joshua Tree, but it's kinda off season during the summer. I'm in though... Perhaps a downtown crawl ???

Dunno.

It's very temping, where exactly in LA?
admin
jakerome PRO 3 years ago
Where? I dunno, the hills, the beach, downtown... Venice Beach is always a trip, although we've already done that. I just think it's crazy to be anywhere but the beach!

Nathan will likely come up from San Diego. Will have to ping Surf Daddy. If he's in, we'll do our best to make sure no one gets stuck with a 3 hour drive.
San Diego Shooter PRO 3 years ago

 Edson_Matthews: Yeah, well, that's because YOU were not there. YOU would have made the place pop.

Venice is a shoot-and-run proposition. I understand that as a tourist you need to get your money's worth in terms of California wackiness, but why would you go to the same place twice?

Edson, what's your pain point?

Also, we're getting very close to the "Jake's making a unilateral decision" part of the process. Too many conditionals here to keep everything open. So, if you're in or near or will be in LA, let me know TODAY what your story is & where you want to go. Once we've got a time/place, I'll crosspost to some other Flickr friends.
ponzü 3 years ago
I'm still a big fat maybe. I don't have any objections to Sunday -- in part because Sundays are slightly less busy for me, and in part because I don't have high hopes for making this one.

Where you guys decide to meet might make a difference for my availability, but I have not heard anyone say Laguna Beach was in the running.
-william PRO 3 years ago
I'm up for Sunday !
admin
jakerome PRO 3 years ago
OK, Sunday is set in stone.

We have a vote for Laguna from an uncertain attendee. I dig Venice. Edson hasn't let us know his pain point. I still need to see the MJT, www.mjt.org . Venice is a trip, the marina is right there, and there's always bike or rollerblading options.
Isa.Risa 3 years ago
Sunday's great... I don't care where. I'll have transportation.

Ponzu, I have your last Okinawan starbucks card for you. Is that incentive enough to get you to join us? If you promise to come, I'll pick up one more before I leave Japan. ;)

OK, I'm going to officially bail on this, I just can't get away for the weekend, not right now.

It's a huge drag, but here we are.

As a small measure of compensation, I will sign up for the current print exchange.

Hopefully that will keep the balance right.

Risa, you drive a hard bargain. I foud out that wife is going to see Les Mis on Sunday, so I have to work around that as I am on the babysitting duty. If her show is in the morning, I can join you in the evening, and vise versa.

Thanks, by the way!

jakerome PRO 3 years ago
So we'll meet Sunday. Before heading to Venice Beach, how about visits to....

1) Baldwin Hills Scenic Outlook
2) Museum of Jurassic Technology www.yelp.com/biz/the-museum-of-jurassic-technology-culver...

Could plan on a couple rally points throughout the day.

Say 10:30 at BHSO, Noon at MJT and 2 PM at Venice Market?

"I really wanted to like this place but my goodness. The museum makes very little sense and appears to have no scholarly basis. It seems like random crap thrown together. If you can appreciate that, go visit the museum."

Doesn't that sound awesome!

If it ends up being just the four of you and you exhaust the entertainment potential of Venice Beach, come visit me in the O.C., perhaps when Nathan is ready to head back south. We can do something stupid like Fashion Island, perhaps Risa would like that, or have dinner at one of the many seaside joints in Huntington or Newport Beach. Sure, it's more freeway driving, but if you carpool, you could talk about, like, stuff.
