The LAX Area Happy Hour Thread

Exciting LAX Area Inaugural Happy Hour
Wednesday July 27th, 2022
Public School 310
Culver City, CA
Recess Hour 4:00 - 6:00 PM



On July 27th, LA based FTers are putting on the first, of what will hopefully become monthly happy hours. A chance for newbies and road warriors alike to talk the latest in miles and points.

By making it a monthly event our hope is to allow as many people as possible to take part. Sometimes one off events donít always work for everyone. This way, if you canít make one date, you can always catch us at the next event.

Depending on feedback and experience, we may keep to a single location, or move around. Weíll always try to find somewhere with good parking and proximity to public transport links, as well as quality locations with favorable food and beverage pricing.

At the top of the thread, there's a blue bar with "Thread Tools," "Search this Thread," and "Rate Thread." Under Thread Tools, you can select "Create a Wikipost" which seems like it should do it.

I am a tentative maybe at the moment.

I'm in.

I tried to book SNA-LAX but apparently they cancelled the route years ago. So I will use ground transportation, and try to get a UA voucher for ir.

Kudos to FlyingMachine for initiating what hopefully will a regular "Stammtisch" for LAX-based and visiting FTers!
Not to mention the "academic touch" added in!
Currently, I am up for the Library, pending travel plans for the second half of next month.

Hope you can make it. Thanks for the tip on the Wiki, I use an iPhone so I didnít know that. I did some research and I have the multi quote function nailed down now on iOS. Perhaps for future events Iíll look into the Wiki for iOS. But for now weíll keep things as they stand.

Glad that you can make it. I thought you had several Uber/Lift vouchers from UA?

We'll be welcoming new and familiar faces. We'd appreciate any feedback the attendees can provide. This will help us to make the meetups as good as we can.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 27th!
