Due to overwhelming attendance we're moving the event to a larger space, the Loft at Liz's. It is an awesome space that everyone in LA must see once. We will have a few guest speakers giving short talks on the exciting stuff they're working on in node.js. We'll send out details on the speakers shortly.
Because this is our very first event we'll be providing dinner and drinks. Should be a fun time for all. Come and bring a friend.
Entrance: The "hidden" entrance is in the alley just West of La Brea (enter through 6th). Look for the sign that says "The Loft at Liz's".
Parking: Free on La Brea after 7pm as well as on 4th and 6th streets. There are also a few choice spots available in the back alley for those who arrive early.
