Stage 32 Meetups : Meetings in weekends? by Emily Verdict

Emily Verdict

Meetings in weekends?

How about setting up a networking meeting once a month in LA like The Piano Bar or something like that on fri sat or sun?

Andrea Maurer

I agree with you Emily!!

Emily Verdict

Right? That would be so nice eh? Online connections are great but nothing compares to meeting face to face!

Fran Tran

If there's one taking place mid-May, I'd love to check it out. I'm in Ontario, Canada and work as a publicist but would like to meet some industry people in LA.

Andrea Thompson

Hi everyone - there's a really cool meetup every Wednesday in LA put together by Stage 32 member Stephen Mitchell. It's called Elysee and it's held at Cafe Primo on Sunset Blvd. - Send Stephen a message and get the details :)

Emily Verdict

Thanks Andrea! Greatly appreciated!

Lisa Claire

That would be perfect

Charmane Wedderburn

WOW ...That would be a Dream come come to pass.

Fran Tran

Thanks, Andrea! Much appreciated. And an alternate meeting group could be good for those who can't make it on a Wednesday.

Andrea Thompson

Stephen's been in the business all over the world. When I come out to LA I'm definitely going to one of his Élysée get togethers :)

Tiffany Marie Delorme

Keep me updated on Stephen's Élysée get togethers. If we're in L.A. at that time, I'd love to attend.

Angel Matheson

I would be interested in a meet up

Sidney Kean

Hi I just happen to be there around that time from England. Would be good to meet people

Abdullah Kurashi

piano bar on sunday would be perfect if it's during the day! weekends are pretty hectic at night though. Please count me in for your next regular meetup.

Stephen J. Jacobs

Hi Emily, I'm a new member. Sat/Sun starting Late afternoon or early evening meetings sounds great for me. I am a Nocturnal Creature that lives within walking distance to the Piano Bar. Plus they have Live Jazz there periodically!

Catherine Grealish

We have a Stage 32 LA meetup coming up on Tuesday May the 13th at Busby's East on Wilshire. Hope to see you there! But if you do start an Sat/Sun meetup I would definitely be interested.

Laura Eileen Sanchez

I want to go !

David Ingrassano

I'd be interested in Fri or Sat nights for a network meeting.

Tiffany Marie Delorme

I'm interested if it's in the Santa Monica area.

Peter Evans

Agreed - I'm in ... next steps?

Emily Verdict

Ok so been getting lots of people wanting to meet up AWESOME! Im going to work on trying to hold two. One for LA peeps who like me need a fri sat or sun and a halfway meetup for OC/IE peeps on one of those days as well. Im thinking for OC/IE meet off the 57 near the Brea mall at one of the places Buca di beppo etc etc etc. Once a month sounds good till we get established and enough people to do more! LA group we have so much we just need to pick a spot and go from there and then follow same plan as the other group. We already have Élysées group on wed. Which is difficult for me cuz i work mon to thurs and now it maybe fri but im on call for now for fri so i can say yea or nay for fri. After June 12 im looking for a spot if you all have specific dates day and time put it out there. Im all about establishing great relationships and helping each other we need to support each other! Then we can get a FB group and stay connected with the wed group we are all in this together. I hear the wed group is great so let's jump in eh? Blessings all!

Robert Destefano

I might be late for this but I'd also liked to join in.

Michael Sollenberger

Great idea!

Stephen J. Jacobs

Can Non-Human Carnivorous Alien Predators also attend the Meet-ups if we promise not to use the Human Members as food? If we get really hungry, we can always step out to the street and whack some Gang Bangers or any member of the L.A. City Council or Mayor's Office stupid enough to be alone and out at Night.

Emily Verdict

All is welcome ahaaaaaa! Stephen makes for good entertainment.

Stephen J. Jacobs

Thanks Emily, I was hoping my comment would be recognized as satire and maybe give some members a good laugh.

David Ingrassano

I'd be interested in the one near Brea mall. I live in the City of Orange.

Mary H. Shellogg

This is a great idea, I'm in

Mercedes Georgina McQueen

I would love to have a monthly meeting of Actors. For my preference,some place that isn't super noisy,so we can have an enjoyable discussion.

Mercedes Georgina McQueen

wow,just realized this was posted 3 months ago. So how have the meetings been going??

Peter Evans

I think we are all still waiting to find a good spot!

Michael Sollenberger

I used to belong to a networking group that used to meet in the back room of Paty's restaurant and later in the back of Marie Callender's, both located in Toluca Lake and both were great places to meet that could accommodate quite a few people and it is also quiet, since both locales are in the back.

David Ingrassano

Seems like a lot of interest but no meetup yet...

Peter Evans

True - true ... I just can't figure out who might set it up???? A question perhaps for Stage 32 mgmt...

Richard "RB" Botto

Another LA Meetup has been formed - July 17th. More details here: https://www.stage32.com/lounge/stage_32_meetups/Los-Angeles-Meetup-Thurs...

Stephen J. Jacobs

Hi, I may have a possible general solution to the L.A. Meetup problems and delays. I spoke with one of the Managers at Cantor's Delicatessen, located at 419 N Fairfax Ave, L.A., CA 90036. She said there would be no problem accommodating our Meetups, on a regular basis. They have a very large 2nd dining room, plus a walled off special seating area that can be easily reserved, that can hold a good 20-30 people (with seating, plus some standing room) with a bar adjacent to those areas. They are open to Fri/Sat/Sun evenings. Currently, Sunday is sometimes their slowest evenings, but not always. So, to the wonderful Emily Verdict and others that have shown interest, I think we can actually make this happen. The Manager said to just give her (Cantor's) a call when we have put it together amongst ourselves and she will accommodate us when we are ready. Cantor's, by the way, is open 24/7 except for some of the Jewish high Holy Days, all year. So, what do you folks think?

Mercedes Georgina McQueen

Stephan & Emily thanks for your continued efforts to get a place to meet up.Sounds great! Hope to be able to meet up with all of you soon.

Peter Evans

Stephen ... GREAT WORK ... ok so / now what? How can I help?

Richard "RB" Botto

Bravo, David. Well said. Cast as wide a net as possible.

Stephen J. Jacobs

Dear Emily and Others, please check out the new thread I started for possible regular future Meetups at Cantor's restaurant in L.A.

Angel Matheson

Sounds like a plan

David Ingrassano

THURSDAY Aug 14th at Busby's East? 5364 Wilshire Blvd. 90036 @ 7 pm. Busbys # 323-525-2615 There will be a sign at the door telling you where we're at inside. Please respond if you're coming.

Peter Evans

I like it - see you there - thank you for setting it up.

David Ingrassano

You're welcome Peter. It should be fun.

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?

David Ingrassano

Melisa...I just found this posted in the lounge section. I figure it doesn't make sense to have two at the same place just days apart. Might as well join them for a bigger networking experience.

David Ingrassano

The post is under Dara Taylor...under La meet ups.

Peter Evans

Sounds good!
