Ok guys, it's time to update this page...
It seems like this group has become more stable now so I think it's worth giving more specific information about it.
First of all, it's ok to come late. We usually hang out upstairs since there is much more space there. Second of all, don't expect any fireworks; this is a very informal gathering mainly geared towards socializing, and although I try my best to be as accomodating as I can, I have no way to please everyone so try to come with a good attitude and I'm sure you'll have a good time. Some of us have become regulars and sometimes we have dinner afterwards.
Please make sure you read all messages as they are sent. I say this because there are times when I can't attend or things change and I completely wash my hands if you don't update yourself on what's going on.
Also, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR RSVP if you change your mind about attending. Some of us make a commitment to be there and I think it's not polite to sign up if you are not serious about coming. Don't take this personal, but I am not a big fan of flakes and slackers.
I might be slightly late at times, so don't forget to write down my phone number, and/or look for possible meetup attendants.
Last but not least, as my fellow Yankees say, there is NO CHARGE for this meetup.
Fortunately, our friend Lorraine is generous enough to allow you guys to be part of our group in Santa Monica, so if you come across her, give her a big hug. However, if the Chinese take over, we might just have to collect donations from you, but for now cheer up!!
