      Anna & Eric: Thank you both of your efforts, energy and enthusiasm in organizing the Glendale Meet-ups. I know how much work it is.... and really appreciate it when I can relax, because someone else has done most of the work. I really had a GREAT day on Saturday at your 2nd anniversary party, meeting new people, enjoying the food, playing the games, and learning about the old zoo!... (My dad taught biology, zoology, anatomy and art) and we spent our childhood at Griffith Park and the Zoo, and I don't remember that "old zoo", so that was really special.

      Take the 5 Freeway to the Los Feliz Boulevard exit. Drive west on Los Feliz Boulevard to the first light and turn north on Crystal Springs Road. After 1.5 miles, turn left on Griffith Park Drive. Continue a quarter mile and turn left into a parking area just before the road bends to the right. There is a row of parking spaces by the turnoff and more parking as you drive into the picnic area. If all spaces are full, you may park at the larger lot by the merry-go-round and walk a little further to the picnic area.

      January 12, 2013

    • Anna

      Dawn, I just emailed you as well.

      January 12, 2013

  • Suzanne

    You can also come at it from the North. I have four rust colored tables between the two parking lots...with orange crepe paper...and will post signs at both lots.

    January 12, 2013

  • Suzanne

    I am at Griffith now. Take Crystal Springs to the "merry go round" turnoff...go up little hill and turn right...that is parking lot 1. Go through that lot to Parking lot 2, come down the steps, I've snagged picnic tables...you will be behind the kids play area.

    January 12, 2013

    Ferndell Park (in Griffith Park) has a great group spot that can hold 50 people, plenty of tables and benches, rest rooms about 300 feet away, plenty of parking and it is a pretty private area so we won't disturb anyone and vice versa.

    November 26, 2012

    • Anna

      sounds good, will set 55 for now, that you Darrell.

      I hosted a Orphan's Thanksgiving Potluck Picnic at the park near my house and we had about 30 people and it was perfect. Very food heavy as it was a foodie group... 2 turkeys, 1 ham and a mountain of side dishes... Here's the photo gallery... http://www.meetup.com...­

      December 7, 2012

  • Ronnie S.

    Maybe we should do food photography in that day. We can shoot it like food commercial.

    November 26, 2012

    • Anna

      Food photography is very complex, so even though we all will have a chance to shoot our food, I would not want to stress about making food more appealing then what it will look like, for that food stylists use chemicals, fake food, different products, that after spraying the food is no longer eatable, so nothing like that will be done during this meetup. We might just have a small set and a few props for you to stage your food and shoot it with a natural light, but since we might have a lot of members, I would rather just enjoy this meetup, but bring your camera just in case.

      November 26, 2012

    • Anna

      That being said, if everyone bring some kitchen supplies, such as a plate, a fork/knife/spoon, or anything else that will help them to stage their food, we will share these props and will have many different options.

      November 26, 2012

  • Brewster

    This is sounds great. Not a heavy eater but fun loving person. Count me in. :-)

    November 15, 2012

    • Eric

      Hi Brewster, you still need to answer the question when you rsvp.

      November 15, 2012

  • Eric

    We will do a food studio shoot sometime in the near future, once we have all the logistics lined up. In the meantime, let's just have some fun with it!

    November 15, 2012

  • Colleen T.

    This sounds like so much fun!
