Meeting 2 proposal

Hi, do folks want to meet up again? If so I propose next Sunday, October 15, 2017, in the same general area (West Los Angeles). Any new folks?

May I suggest Manoly's Bakery (11771 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025), which is cheap and good? It has a small Mexican bakery in addition to inexpensive Mexican and American items.

If folks want to do more of a sit down meal and want something more...exotic, there's Javan Restaurant (11500 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025). I would say to start at 2:50pm: I will be in late in that case.

I'm in for the 15th, the bakery sounds fine however are we able to linger there a bit? Our last meeting ended a little too quickly and I believe others wanted to stay and chat.. Please take that into consideration when establishing the timing for meeting 2..

Rather than changing the thread title every time I have created a wiki post where information about the next meetup may be posted. Unfortunately the OP is not able to edit the wiki yet but any member with more than 90 posts and 90 days' membership should be able to update the wiki post.

This group needs some action to survive. Members of the previous meeting, please advise if your attending. OP please monitor, and kindly update the venue and time specifics. All new members whom are interested please advise (all are welcome) to coin a phrase..

Tentatively interested -- not a huge fan of the location though; would prefer something farther south or with easier parking (coffee perhaps?). I'm guessing the OP (or whoever it is that suggests these locations) lives fairly close to that area, as the previous location appears to be just up the street?

I will be attending.

More details to come, but looks like we are going to do 3pm-4:30pm Sunday 10/15 (as per prior posts). Saturday would be too short notice at this point, I feel.

SeanTek whom has confirmed? I don't see anyone confirming other than you and I. Only interest by others. Since you prefer to communicate outside of this thread via text rather than the proper housekeeping would you kindly advise whom else is attending?
