    I enjoyed the pieces at the symphony tonight. I enjoyed the piece by Saint-Saens. I only know the Carnival of Animals. This was great. The pieces were well done. I plan to go again. I heard they will show a movie there on Sunday regarding Samson and Delilah.

    January 12, 2013

    • Dev

      I think Samson and Delilah is an opera this afternoon.

      I'm glad you enjoyed yourself in spite of not finding the group. Were you able to find the fireplace?

      January 13, 2013

    • Reinaldo D.

      No. I didn't know we were supposed to find each other at the fireplace. I probably passed it a few times throughout the night but no I didn't see it.

    Hi there all. Is anyone coming from the Valley area. I'm in Valley Village and would love to share a ride.

    January 10, 2013

    • Karen S.

      Hi Terry do you want to arrange to meet somewhere in between? I'm not sure how the ridesharing work but I'm near Laurel Canyon/Riverside in Studio City.

      Any chance of any SFV peeps willing to take 405 to 10??? Maybe someone from W of 405..... :)

    Hello everyone! I am thrilled and surprised by the interest in this event! It's great! This group--along with the other smaller groups tagging along--will overwhelm Panera. What do you think about people whose names begin with A-K go to Panera, and L-Z go to Cabo Taco Baja Grill. Also with so many people we'll need more time to mingle. We should move the mandatory meetup time at the fireplace to 7:15. And whereever you go please bring cash. Thoughts?

    1 · January 7, 2013

    • Lionel

      We're NOT doing the A-K L-Z thing. You can go to Panera first--if full go to Cabo.

      There's also a Asian Buffett and a Sizzler, a Wendy's and a Taco Bell.

    I will drive if anyone needs a ride near encino. If you are in sherman oaks that is right next door. If North Hollywood or Studio City I can get you if it is on the way. Not sure where La Mirada is. If it is not on the way and you need a ride you can meet me at a Starbucks in Sherman Oaks, Encino or Woodland Hills. Thanks!

    Btw, my friend cancelled last minute so I will be tagging along for dinner at Cabo Grill. Looking forward to meeting you all!
