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?

I agree with you Emily!!
Right? That would be so nice eh? Online connections are great but nothing compares to meeting face to face!
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.
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 :)
Thanks Andrea! Greatly appreciated!
That would be perfect
WOW ...That would be a Dream come come to pass.
Thanks, Andrea! Much appreciated. And an alternate meeting group could be good for those who can't make it on a Wednesday.
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 :)
Keep me updated on Stephen's Élysée get togethers. If we're in L.A. at that time, I'd love to attend.
I would be interested in a meet up
Hi I just happen to be there around that time from England. Would be good to meet people
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.
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!
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.
I want to go !
I'd be interested in Fri or Sat nights for a network meeting.
I'm interested if it's in the Santa Monica area.
Agreed - I'm in ... next steps?
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!
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.
All is welcome ahaaaaaa! Stephen makes for good entertainment.
Thanks Emily, I was hoping my comment would be recognized as satire and maybe give some members a good laugh.
I'd be interested in the one near Brea mall. I live in the City of Orange.
This is a great idea, I'm in
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.
wow,just realized this was posted 3 months ago. So how have the meetings been going??
I think we are all still waiting to find a good spot!
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.
Seems like a lot of interest but no meetup yet...
True - true ... I just can't figure out who might set it up???? A question perhaps for Stage 32 mgmt...
Another LA Meetup has been formed - July 17th. More details here: https://www.stage32.com/lounge/stage_32_meetups/Los-Angeles-Meetup-Thurs...
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?
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.
Stephen ... GREAT WORK ... ok so / now what? How can I help?
Bravo, David. Well said. Cast as wide a net as possible.
Dear Emily and Others, please check out the new thread I started for possible regular future Meetups at Cantor's restaurant in L.A.
Sounds like a plan
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.
I like it - see you there - thank you for setting it up.
You're welcome Peter. It should be fun.
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?
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.
The post is under Dara Taylor...under La meet ups.
