Nerds Go To Museum - The Getty Center

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In our recent Gelato meetup, several of my fellow nerds expressed interest in going to The Getty Center. So I'm suggesting it.

I'm thinking meeting up somewhere in the OC at 4pm, then we can all carpool over to save some money. The parking after 5pm are $10 and the admission is free. I think 5pm is perfect since it's not so hot and we get to catch the magnificent view in day light and at night.

The museum closes at 9pm. If we have enough interest, we might go grab some food or dessert afterwards. All suggestions are welcome.

If you need more information, you can visit http://www.getty.edu/visit/hours/index.html

Update:

#1 I updated the meeting time to 5pm.  If anyone are heading over on their own, we will meet somewhere in the front where we get off the tram around 5ish.

#2 For people who are interested in carpooling, here are the details.

Place: Fullerton Transportation Center.

Time: 3:45.

The Fullerton Transportation Center is located at downtown Fullerton.  Here is the google map link:

There is a giant parking structure located on S. Pomona Ave. We will be meeting at the entrance to the structure on the first level at 3:45.  Please arrive on time.  As the event gets closer, I will send out email with my phone number attached.  Please post if you are interested in carpooling so we will try to wait for you.  I will send out my contact info as it gets closer to the date.

#3 Thank you Juliaa for this information.  Saturday night, Getty Center is having the "Saturdays Off the 405".  The band Geographer will be playing along with DJ sets from 6-9pm.  If you want to learn more, here is the link:

    Carpooling: I'm actually located in LA County. If anyone is going West on the 91 you'll be flying right past me. Anyone up for stopping briefly to pick up one more?

    Sent out emails with my contact information yesterday. Please let me know if you didn't receive it. As of right now, this is a no host event unless someone is appointed by the organizer. Hope to see you all tomorrow.

    Hello everyone. I'm excited to see so many people are interested in going to The Getty. I do have a couple things I do need your help on. First, is everyone okay with the carpool idea? And if so, where should we meet up to carpool? I'm thinking somewhere in the Northern OC since we are all heading into LA and it make the perfect sense. But the only place is big and safe enough is The Block which is kind of nightmarish to find parking. Any suggestions?

    Second, does anyone have any suggestions for dinner or dessert ideas afterwards?

    Please all feedback are welcome. I want to make it as convenient and as fun for everyone. And since this is my first suggestion, I'm not as experienced at organizing a meetup. So please post all your ideas.

      There are many many food options on the westside. Good Japanese and great Persian food. Also, great Persian ice cream with rose water, cardamom, etc.

      I could probably get to the Fullerton park and ride on my own, but I would definitely need a ride back to Irvine. :-)
