Details The title alone packs a lot of info. So let's just take a moment and unpack it. FREE Happy Hour Mixer and Mingle at The Cold War Museum in Culver City. Yes. There is a Cold War Museum in Culver City. It is called The Wende (pronounced “venda”), a German word meaning “turning point” or “change” that has come to describe the transformative period leading up to and following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 With a mission to preserve Cold War art, culture, and history from the Soviet Bloc countries, inspire a broad understanding of the period, and explore its enduring legacy. And is located in Culver City in a National Guard Armory building built in 1949 (yet more cold war tie in!!!) That covers the "Museum" part. Why are are we going as a meetup? On Friday, October 26, 7 p.m. there is going to be a Curator's talk on "Culture and Power" with a subtitle of a discussion on "Art and Alcohol" Hold in. Didn't you say "Happy Hour?" YES!!!!!

We will split amount Bigfoot West, Oldfield's (drinks), Bamboo Caribbean Cuisine (with a bar), or Tara's Himalayan Cuisine (they have Yak!!!!). There should be a big crowd at the museum so it will be good to divide among these. They are 2 blocks north of The Wende (that means walking distance OR we can do a Bird armada. Do you want more info about this museum talk? Most societies distinguish between our material existence and the spiritual forces that shape our lives. In modern Europe, this idea took the form of a struggle between culture and power. Chief Curator Joes Segal will discuss the ideas of various modern philosophers, including Kant, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Foucault, Said, and Huntington, in an attempt to illuminate how they might or might not shed light on our current state of affairs. Do you want more info about The Wende? ***collects and preserves artwork, artifacts, archives, films, and personal histories from Cold War-era Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union relating to the period 1945–1991; ***challenges and engages the public through experimental exhibitions and interdisciplinary programming inspired by the collection; *** illuminates the past and informs the present through creative collaborations with contemporary artists and designers; and ***promotes rigorous scholarship, educates students, and stimulates general interest through lectures, symposia, and publications.

What we're about

Big on Los Angeles is Santa Monica's and Los Angeles was developed for social people and exclusive professionals to gather, catch a breather from the hectic pace, chill out in a comfortable scene and enjoy a classy evening with friends - with an emphasis on good times and good conversation accompanied by good food and good drink. (Age range generally between 25 & 45) New in town let's take the big city and get you some friends or do you need a new fun group of friends to meet then come join us. Our goal is to be able to spend quality time with the people we have met and want to meet, on both a professional and personal level. Too often we are all so extremely busy that we don’t get a chance to mingle, brainstorm, catch up and make those connections that will lead us to the next adventure in life. What started as a group of friends meeting once a month for appetizers and drinks.
So to make sure we keep growing the Mixin crew, we will constantly introduce new members as we gather a dozen times a month at various restaurants throughout Santa Monica and all of Los Angles. These venues will know we’re coming, and you can bet there will be some VIP treatment and special offers as Los Angeles best venues open their doors to our exclusive membership. Now that you’ve found us, take a minute to sign up so we can make sure you’re on the list for the next Event. There is no fee to join, but we are selective. We do require a current photo (a headshot please), so our organizers can recognize you at the events and a little information about yourself to break the ice… So join us and let the good times roll!

Hope to see you soon! Michael Brandt "The Social Man."
