    ENJOYED MEETING EVERYONE AS A NEW MEMBER OF YOUR GROUP. I know many of your members are also screenwriters so I invite them to check out our LA meetup group. We can be a great resource for "Survival tips in Hollywood."

    That was an absolute joy, meeting all y'all, getting to interact about writing with actual other writers, and slugging down good food, good beer, sangria and special gummie-bears ... the fact that I also got to declare it as "business" was just the gravy! See you again soon!

  • Pearlena P.

    It is late, but I was hoping for a reprieve. Unfortunately, none is coming. And that means that I will not be able to attend today. I was so looking forward to this event, but the fates are against it. My apologies for the late notification.

    July 20

  • Margaret

    Do we have plates and silverware?

    July 20

  • Isaac

    Since so many others are bringing fresh fruit, I'm changing my item to garlic cheese grits. : D Oh, and also beer.

    2 · July 20

  • Sherry W.

    Changing from chicken salad to shrimp. Just in the mood for seafood!

    So - I'm not much of a cook at all, and I may just bring a fair bit of beer. If nothing else, we know it won't get left over : ) and I'll see if there's anything else I can think of. If there's something we need at the last second, let me know and I can track it down.

    2 · July 20

  • Nina F.

    I need to leave by six, so I'll be one of the early people. No idea what I'm bringing, but given what my garden is up to, it will include cucumbers. Maybe tabouli.

    2 · July 19

    • Rose M.

      Tabouli...so delicious and refreshing. If it's something else, that's okay too. See you there.

      July 19

    I can make my infamous wine cocktails! :)

      July 19

  • Cheryl R.

    Rose Marie and Sherry, I wonder if you guys have thought about name tags? I think I have some of you want me to bring them. It would help us avoid those oh-drats-I-forgot-his/her-name moments!
