    Bodega Wine Bar is at Broadway and Lincoln, right next door to Cross Campus.

    If you're trying to decide between the LATHH and the SM New Tech event at Cross Campus tonight, feel free to attend both. LATHH is always casual, so just drop by as you're able. We'll be there from 6pm until at least 9pm.

    So I was the only one who chickened out and left when I saw a bar full of techies, will try to be less socially awkward next time.

    I had a great time last night- as a recent transplant, it was great to meet some folks and learn about the tech community. Thanks for putting it together!

    Thanks for setting this up. This was my first MU with this group. I walked into the bar and thought: "this is going to be a tough room" but in fact it was really easy to meet people and chat. No L.A. attitude to be found. Thanks again......

    Not able to make this one. Maybe next time.

    i got a question, is there a way, or is it appropriate to make an announcement during the meet up? i'm not selling anything, but i'm a game and application developer and i'm looking for IOS code partners on project with some immediacy. a great opportunity actually, just found myself behind the curve on this one. it's my first time on a gathering like this... and would like to be polite. thanks.

      This comment thread is the most effective way, during the meetup it's Ussually too loud and spread out to make an announcement

      January 16, 2013

    • Orlando

      You might want to go the the meetup next door first (SM New Tech), they always ask for announcements before they start.

    Looks like the Santa Monica tech group and this one picked the same day and time for their events. Hopefully just this once! By the way, are there any eco-entrepreneurs here?

    January 15, 2013

    • C.J. W.

      Bodega is actually right next store to the Santa Monica New Tech event at Cross Campus - so you can come by after the event's over!

    I have another event that night. Do most people come early and/or stay late? Trying to figure out how to juggle both events

    January 2, 2013

    • C.J. W.

      Coming later is usually better, 7/7:30p is the peak since everyone's still getting out of work right at 6p
