Los Angeles Meetup! Thursday, July 17th @ 7:00 PM

Hey, LA (and surrounding areas) peeps! If you can make this meetup at The Perch in downtown L.A., please post here. If another day works better, share that, too. We want as many people to show up as possible. http://www.perchla.com/

July 17th looks good!

Melissa Papel

Ok, my threads no longer exist so this is the main thead, please reply here everybody! Looking forward to meeting you all on te 17th!

Robert Destefano

Works for me!

Michelle Klein-Hass

Won't be able to make it to this one but next month should be fine!

Stephen J. Jacobs

I can make this if I'm not working that night!

Melissa Papel

Hi Stephen. It's 448 S Hill Street, LA CA 90013. Hope you can make it!

David Ingrassano

I will be there...if this is still the July 17th at 7pm. I also posted with another LA group thread that is trying to form and told them to check it out too.

Peter Evans

Great - thank you for sending this out - I'll plan on being there.

Melissa Papel

Yes, indeed. July 17th at 7pm at The Perch Downtown LA. This is getting bigger and better! Yay!!!

Peter Evans

.. Just throwing it out to the group here - should we set this up as an event on STAGE 32 and then with the venue @ PERCH? (this may already be on STAGE 32) - or do we add this to http://www.meetup.com/ (or all of the above) .. just a few thoughts to help coordinate.

Kimberly Kaplan

I would love to, but I'm out of town until the 26th. I hope there are more meetups in store for the future!

Stephen J. Jacobs

Hi Marni and Others! Please check out the new Meetup thread I started for potential future events at Cantor's restaurant! SJJ

Melissa Papel

Peter, RB said that it was better just to have one thread because otherwise it gets too confusing and mixed up. But you're welcome to share this thread anywhere you like. Just copy paste the link http://www.stage32.com/lounge/stage_32_meetups/Los-Angeles-Meetup-Thursd...

Peter Evans

M - great ... I have it down. Looking forward to it.

Laura LaMonaco

So the meetup is July 17th at LA perch and the future ones at the Cantor??

Marni Troop

The 17th meetup is at LA Perch. Cantors has been suggested for future meetups, but I think I'm the only one who responded to that suggestion. :-)

Laura LaMonaco

Oh ok. Put me down as a maybe as the next 2 weeks are unpredictable at the moment. :)

David Ingrassano

Yes, it's at LA Perch. I think it makes sense to meet up and then if those who attend the meet up wish to change the location it's discussed at that time.

Laura LaMonaco

I agree with David. My experience is not many show to new meetings until they see a consistency. Cleats see who does show and then maybe we can have "biz" talk in regards to location. Thoughts? I may try to make it just as a break from phone work that I have all week...lol

Kimberly Kaplan

I'm all for meeting, except I can't make the one in July (out of town).

W. Cameron Tucker

I'm interested but leaving town for a few days on the 17th. Keep me on the list of interested folks.

Erik C. Andersen

How do we know how many people are going on the 17th???

Laura LaMonaco

Erik, we will never know the exact amount until we get a count at the door. To see an estimate just scroll through the comments I guess.

Peter Evans

1,000's .... just kidding ... I can't imagine how we'd ever be able to tell since we do not have a "meetup" or something similar set up (yet) .... as in www.meetup.com

Melissa Papel

These types of meet ups have been organised in the past with other Stage 32 members in other cities and they were very successful. I don't know if this will become a monthly thing (some people seem to believe so) but let's try to make this one fun and casual. The more the merrier! See you all on the 17th. PS: Go to the LAST FLOOR of the Perch (the ROOF TOP) as there are several floors. If you can't find us or simply when you get there, feel free to give me a call (310)256-5315

David Ingrassano

I've invited others to come from Stage 32 that I have connected with on other threads. They haven't responded to this thread but they sent me emails saying they will show up on the 17th.

Melissa Papel

Fantastic!!! That's really good news!

Ddddd Ppppp

Added to my calendar!

Robert Destefano

Confirmed!

Howard Casner

I can make that.

Joe Bohn

I'll be there

Stephen Foster

dang it! week nights M-Thurs are not good for me! I could do weekends and friday nights....:)

David Ingrassano

Stephen this group already tried to meet on a weekend and there was only two of us interested. You could always form your own group or join other groups in LA that meet weekends. This group finally got a response when Melissa Papel moved it to a Thursday evening.

Ruby Zandra Waller

I was about to head to Detroit to help out at the Net Roots Nation Conference tomorrow where Vice President Joe Biden is giving his key note speech. I wanted to rap up "Kingmaker Blues" there. Everyone must have gotten wind of the information because the prices have gone sky high to Detroit and the reasonable transportation is all sold out. Looks like I'll be stuck in LA. What an awesome way to enjoy being stuck in LA. Just the motivation I needed to focus on my screenwriting. I'll be delighted to meet up with you all tomorrow at Perch at 7P. I'll have to call and tell Noi and Bo I won't be making our meetup in Detroit. Sometimes things get all worked out on the Universes schedule.

Robbie Pierce

Sounds sweet! Hope I get out of work on time!

Sarah Schulz

I think I can make it--I'm new to Stage 32 and would love to connect with some local peeps.

Kasi Adams

I'm also new to Stage 32; I will be there tomorrow along with another actor friend. Yay!

Sarah Schulz

Anyone know whether The Perch has valet parking?

David Ingrassano

I just called...there is valet parking after 7 pm at Perch for $9 or there is parking for $5 or $6 on lots on the corner or across the street.

Ruby Zandra Waller

Thanks for the info. I guess folk in this area don't have parking lots without $ signs. LOL.

Marni Troop

Not downtown... which is why I'm all for places like Cantors or even somewhere in the valley. :-)

Erik C. Andersen

Looking forward to tonights meetup!

Marni Troop

Well, wouldn't you know it... I'm going to miss this meetup. Stupid cough won't go away. :-( Next time, y'all! I'm going to drink some tea now...

Howard Casner

Will there be a problem finding each other in the place?

Laura LaMonaco

Well, I can't go because I have no $$ and no gas in the car...lol However, keep this up, should be able to go next week or if it becomes bi-weekly, and we should talk about car pooling as well. I'm in Van Nuys.

Melissa Papel

Ok guys. Let's focus on this meet up right now if you dint mind. Maybe it's just a one time thing, we will see how it goes first and then decide the rest accordingly:). In order to find each other, please make sure you come to the very top floor (the roof top), not the restaurant floor. Dress code is casual to upscale but this is LA so I wouldn't worry about it too much if you're not one of those dressy types! Just in case you can't find anyone, my number is (310)256-5315. See you all in a bit! Looking forward!

Abdullah F. Kurashi

AHHHH I really want to join, but I'm gonna be working until ten. Have loads of fun and take pictures.

Sarah Schulz

This turned out to be a fantastic meetup--I feel so much more connected than I did before!

Melissa Papel

Yes, it was amazing!!! Thank you all for this wonderful evening!!! Let's do it again soon!:)

Amanda Toney

I had such a great time last night meeting everyone! Thanks again for putting it all together!

Ruby Zandra Waller

I feel a little silly bringing my laptop and binder prepared to work. What can I say. I'm from Vegas. Our group there is small but mighty. We work at our trade during our meetups. I like you all's style. I got a lot of work done simply chatting with other creatives. Networking. What a concept:).

Erik C. Andersen

Great to meet everyone last night. The location was perfect!

Crystal L. Smithwick

Sorry to miss it. I just came in this morning.

Stephen J. Jacobs

Hi Marni, sorry you couldn't make it and I missed the opportunity to meet you. It was really cool, especially with the Stage 32 executives showing up. I met some really nice people and had a great time. Thanks for helping us.

Marni Troop

Stephen, I'm hoping to make the next one. Sounds like it was a blast! :-)

Peter Evans

Damn ... had to miss everyone ... looking forward to making the next!!!

David Ingrassano

Peter....No worries Los Angeles has many filmmakers. I think I'm going to throw a meet up soon as I have ten or more new ones and why wait a month. It's a long time to wait when there's people interested in meeting. The group who attended the last meet up is moving it to Burbank next month. No offense to Burbank but the Perch was a great location....and worthy of more meet ups. We had a great turn out for a Thursday night. I was going to try a Friday evening. Possibly this coming week.

David Ingrassano

There's another meet up scheduled for the Perch for Thursday July, 24,, 2014 @ 7 pm. I emailed people and so far about five new people are coming.

Stephen J. Jacobs

Thanks David, I have a prior commitment, but please advise for meets after that.

Sarah Schulz

I can't make this one (I'm heading to San Diego for Comic Con), but I'll be on the lookout for future meetups!

Kimberly Kaplan

I'm still out of town but will be back tomorrow. I hope to make the next one!

Marci Urling

Just joined so I missed this one..Looking forward to the next!

Bruno Xavier

Just saw this. Count me in for next one.

Eric Raphael Harman

How did it go. I am on the WESTSIDE

David Ingrassano

Marni Troop

David, I suggest you create a new Meetup thread for this. I don't know how many people are still following this thread. BTW, I think I'll be there. :-)

Marni Troop

See how "with it" I am? :-P

David Ingrassano

:) Hope to see you Thursday.

Howard Casner

Sounds good. I'll be there.

David Ingrassano

Awesome! Feel free to invite others too. I'm bringing two others with me, a make up artist and an actor.

Ruby Zandra Waller

Locked and loaded headed back to Las Vegas for our Meetup Friday at Denny's to release a lifetime of "Blues" starting in the Ghettos of PA and ending with Corruption on Capitol Hill that left the longtime unemployed homeless and our First Black President fighting for our Civil Rights.

Ruby Zandra Waller

@David: Thanks for the invite to Thursday's meet up. If I'm in town, I will try and make it.

David Ingrassano

There seems to be a meet up planned for BUSBYS on the AUG 12th....seems like we should just join them ....I'm all for moving it up a few days... anyone else care?

Melissa Papel

really? Who's organising that? I'm actually available that day.

Melissa Papel

Can you please share the link so that everyone has it?

Howard Casner

I"m flexible.

David Ingrassano

I think you have to be in this business.

David Ingrassano

We had our 3rd Stage 32 meet up last night. This time we joined another meet up group that labels themselves FILM/GAMING/MUSIC COMPOSERS. About 30 people showed up, eight of those were from STAGE32. They meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month at Busby's East from 5-8 pm. I'm going to join them monthly. Busby's is a great location, casual atmosphere, $1 tacos, $5 drinks and everyone in the private room is there to network.

Marni Troop

Sounds amazing! I keep having to miss them, darnit!

David Ingrassano

Marni, Now that we joined with this other group it will always be the 2nd Tuesday of the month at Busby's. I'm sure other LA meetups will pop up as well.

Sarah Schulz

I definitely hope there will be other meetups; Tuesday is the one day every week I'm not free to go! :)

David Ingrassano

look on other thread. There's a group starting in Manhattan Beach
