      Welcome. See you tonight. bring lots of business cards.

    Hi Goli. I've got a question...if this is a professional networking group, doesn't it make that difficult if we're expected to order dinner at the restaurant? I think that will really hinder our ability to move around and network with people. Wouldn't the objective be more effective if we could just order drinks or some small dish we could carry?

    May 6, 2013

    • Goli K.

      Dear Eric, The restaurant has graciously allowed us to gather in their space and are giving us great courteous service to accommodate our group. We have been holding meetings in restaurants for the past year. Since restaurants are places of business we think that it is appropriate for the members who attend to spend money. The amount is a guideline. You are welcome to spend money on anything you want as long as you do spend some money that makes sense for the restaurant owners. We do not pay anything to reserve a section of the restaurant to provide a venue for San Fernando Valley Business owners to meet up. It is only fair to also think of the business that is helping us do this. If in the future we do find a venue that is not a restaurant then things might change. for now though that is the system in place. Thank you for understanding.

    I too am in Burbank and don't get off of work until 6:30p. I may be late. Will that be okay or will it be disruptive if I get there at 7-7:15?

    May 6, 2013

    • Goli K.

      Dear Karen, Please come. We do not start the formal portion of our meeting until 7:45. Just come early enough to order dinner. See you on Thursday.

      May 6, 2013

    • Karen S.

      Great. I just reviewed the schedule...see u then.

  • Joni

    Hi, are these meetups only in Encino? I live/work in Burbank and that is just too far. I thought it was more centered around Sherman Oaks.

    April 5, 2013

    • Goli K.

      Dear Joni, We are very close to Sherman oaks. For now we will be a the John O'Groats because we get good service and it has a great environment and a bar for those who would like to have a drink after work. I wish you could join us at least once. If you know of a place in Sherman oaks that can accommodate our group you suggestion is very welcome.
