24|Seven's SoCal UX Family Happy Hour

  • August 29, 2012 · 6:30 PM

IxDA Los Angeles, UXPA LA, The Los Angeles User Experience Meetup, the UX Book Club Los Angeles, the UX Breakfast Club, the Los Angeles UX Happy Hour and the Orange County User Experience Meetup work close together to deliver high quality programs and events to the Southern California UX community. We've had some amazing events over the past six months. And, we have reached some important milestones. The Los Angeles User Experience Meetup group has over 2,000+ members and UPA has grown, pivoted and expanded to become UXPA. There have been other important milestones -- too many to list. So, please join us to celebrate these successes and the strength of the Southern California UX community.

On Wednesday, August 29th, we will gather at Far Bar LA in Little Tokyo at 6:30 PM for an evening of fun.

How are we able to celebrate the unity and strength of the entire local UX community? 24 Seven has generously partnered with to us to make this event happen.

They are the leading specialized talent recruitment firm supporting top teams at the most recognized agencies, boutique firms, interactive shops and emerging companies, globally.

And, for those of you arriving a little hungry, we will be serving some light appetizers, including:

  • Wasabi fries
  • Sesame roasted vegetable platter
  • Ming wings
  • Chicken satay
  • Sushi rolls

We're truly thrilled about this event. Given that this gathering will include members from seven different UX groups, space will fill up fast. So get permission from your spouse, cats, dogs, etc. and RSVP soon!

    At the recent happy hour event, 24 | Seven had a drawing for two Apple store gift cards and the lucky winners were Jennifer Ridriguez of Gardner and Birns and Wendy Franklin of Primitive Spark. Congrats to the both of you!

    This was the best one yet for me, of the four meetups I've attended. I'm starting to feel more getting to know new folks. And, even better, I'm starting to see familiar faces.

    A bit unorganized. I thought there was going to be a bigger turnout. I also thought there was a program/plan. The food at Far Bar was great and Drink Ticket was very helpful. Who won the Biz Card Drawing??!!

    The first 100 folks to arrive will receive a ticket for one free drink. Yay! Also, light appetizers will be served this evening. And, I have been informed there is a parking lot on San Pedro between First and Temple that may be free, if the parking attendant has left for the day. See you in a few hours!

    Since tomorrow's gathering is a happy hour event, I encourage everyone to carpool with a designated driver or use public transportation. Katie Christensen from 24|Seven and Susan Oslin from our UX community have planned a really fun event for everyone. So, see you at the 24|Seven's SoCal UX Family Happy Hour at the Far Bar in Little Tokyo and come ready to celebrate.
