Come and meet cool and colorful people! Members of the NC community have reported that they enjoy getting to know other readers, as well as having lively conversations.
For Los Angeles, it seems no meetup time or place is optimal, given the spread of the city and its traffic, so I hope this compromise works for at least some of you. If not, we’ll have a very intimate gathering!
Since I understand traffic usually gets ugly starting at 3:00 PM, readers wanted to meet in LA on the early side. So let’s start at noon.
We’ll meet at the airport Hilton. One of the reasons for picking an airport hotel is the parking should be reasonable by LA standards.
We’ll congregate in the lobby lounge. The staff says you can order food from the hotel restaurants which are just off the lobby, so people who want to get a nosh, as opposed to just a coffee or a brunch-type drink, should have a good range of options.
Hilton Los Angeles Airport
5711 West Century Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90045
For San Francisco, the following Tuesday, July 18, we’ll use a venue that seems to work well for readers: the Press Club. I’ve booked a table and we all crowd in. You might need to commandeer stools from other sections of the Press Club but it’s all worked out fine in the past.
5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The Press Club
20 Yerba Buena Lane
See you soon!
