Group background:



The group started as a foodie group to explore Downtown Los Angeles Chinatown, previously known as "Chinatown Explorers."  After the previous organizer decided not to run this group, I decided to take it over rather than let it go into oblivion like so many Meetup groups do.

I decided to expand the group to include Downtown Los Angeles Little Tokyo as well.  And then of course "Los Angeles Explorers" in general so the group would cover the whole area including the San Gabriel Valley's famous eating spots as well.

Since I have many different cultural interests as well - I have started including lots of other events in the Los Angeles area, often crossposted in other Meetup Groups for which I am an organizer for and which you may be a member of also including these:



Southern California Gay & Lesbian Club (and Friends) Organizer
