What we're about

Our sister groups https://www.meetup.com/IWantToDoThat/join https://www.meetup.com/FUNdation/Join

This group aims to be positive and safe environment for members to experience all things art.

\Everyone is welcome.

Los Angeles is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME INTO THE GROUP!

About the Organizer: Truth be told I am more un-organized that organized. Even so . . . . I try. I found meetup to try and get more fit and was doing the hiking meetups. Eventually I saw meetup had other more social things and I went to some. They were not decent at all, many focus on lots of drinking and hooking up. Many years ago I was a Summer Camp Director, and I thought: "I can do better than that." So instead of complaining, one day a meetup organizer had stepped down and I thought I would give it a shot. That was about 6 mos ago. So my events might just have the same feel as Summer Camp, . . . but for adults. Most events are free. There are a few that cost. Those do make enough to cover the Meetup fees. I do extend out to lots of other organizers, as a good community is made of many and diverse voices and people.

This is a place where everyone can just come as they are, and mingle with people who are like them AND who are NOT like them. We are not limited, restricted or exclusive by age, gender, gender preference, national origin, relationship status, etc. To put it more simply this group is open to all. All ages, all genders, all sexual orientations, all types - And that includes you!!!

There are plenty of meetups that exclude based of one reason or another. Or there plenty meetups where people self segregate. This meetup is neither of those. Diversity is coveted here. People are not monochrome and neither are we. You will fit in perfectly and find a lot of folks who just like you in certain aspect, and differ from you in others. It's the good kind of variety of life.

Some events on this group may specify limits at times. Those will be clearly noted when needed. At times they may be age delineated, or even gender related. Limits are placed often as a means to control size. The event can then be repeated/recycled with a different limit range. If there is an event you really wish to go to with a limit, . . . please contact me. You can be the impetus and the catalyst for the next event in the different limit/range. Other times the limit can be waived or bent as needed.

Challenge yourself and importantly, BE yourself and expand your horizons and comfort zone. Let your hair down! Go wild! Be open minded and be non-judgmental. The group is based off quality events to bring people together from positive social interaction. Anyone who wants to explore an alternative, bohemian, experimental, strange, obscure, weird, wild, absurd, bizarre, avant garde, unconventional, wild-at-heart side of Los Angeles is welcome!

In the interest of making events successful . . . I will spread events across other meetup groups to bump up attendance. For as you know, . . . sometimes people don't show up. Some Organizers get really bent out of shape about that. I do however know that life happens. Even if it's 10 mins before the event. Just change your rsvp. No worries. No harm-no foul. There is not any sort strikes or penalty system, and there is nobody keeping score. The exception will be if it is listed as a "no flake" event. On those you gotta give good notice of changes. It's about fun and community. What I have found is that by being mellow and and having good events more show up. We tend to have 80% or more attendance. I approach with compassion. So if you don't make one event or another. . . try and make it to the next, or the one after that. When you do make it, .. . . we will be glad you are there and all are welcome.

Here are the basics of group rules.

Do NOT contact members who you have not met in real life.

Avoid Put Downs.

Speak For Yourself.

Listen To Others.

You Have The Option To Pass.

Expect Unfinished Business.

While there are flexible attendance rules. There are sex/gender related rules. As a guideline do not message people you have not met in person. This is not an online dating place. Ladies: If a guy messages you please contact me. There have been problems with that happening over meetup in general. It's just not cool. Meetup is about real life and not virtual. Guys, . . . get off your computer and come to an event. Say hello in person. Smile, . . . be personable and decent. And just be there to get to know people and make friends of whatever gender. You can always use new good friends. And this is one way to make/meet them. Wingman tactics and and Pickup artist tactics are similarly not allowed in this group. Organizers of another group that are not an organizer or host here are also not allowed to solicit members.

The rest of the rule are just good ways to live and be.

These rules apply here AND on like-minded sister groups. So it also applies on the following

Photo and Name: You are allowed to join with whatever name and whatever photo. HOWEVER the main organizers may request you change either name or photo a their discretion. Names that are products, promotional, advertisements are red flags that will be requested to change or be removed. If you are using a photo that is not your face, a current face photo may be requested. Here is the rule of thumb. Fake name and fake photo will be requested to change to a real photo and a real name or face removal. Real photo and fake name is usually fine. Fake photo and real name is usually fine.

IF you need to maintain privacy of both then contact the main organizers and just ask. That's all it takes usually.

All organizers on the group do have different set of rules.

The rules simplified.

• No Emailing (do not use the bulk email feature in any way)

• No outside links

• Great Copy

• Great Pix

• 4 weeks notice is best.

• List any money costs in the first 2 or 3 lines.

Not too many rules. Not too complicated. They all have to do with respect for the membership.

Let's talk a little more about age: Are you in your 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s ? (btw some write 20's 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's 90's ). I am often asked "What age range is this group?" 20 40 maybe? 30 50 perhaps? Or even 60 70. Forties ( forty's forty ), Fifties ( fifty's fifty ) of sixties ( sixty's sixty ) or older does matter. 24-39 3000 20+ 30+ 50+ 60+ & under or over. We are just aiming at good community.

Yeah, . . . All that is great, . . . But I still have one question, . . . What age is your group?

Age is a state of mind. And our state (this group) has no borders.

If so then you may be looking for us!

We do NOT discriminate by age, sex or gender, gender preference, origin, religion, belly button lint, etc . . . .

Do you enjoy friendship, activities, key networking, casual socializing, parties learning, sharing, inspiration? You do!?!?! How about personal and professional development with active nerd adult ( adults ) who like adventure ( adventurers, adventures, adventurous ) stuff that may involve silly dance game ( games ) and cool nerds with addicting, amazing fun? Great!!!! There will be sweet things to discover while engaging in retro revival underground unique geeky exploration of fringe play plus speed punk quirky sophisticated spectacular geek socials with high society making savvy friends. It will be an offbeat odyssey of an outing to nerdy paradise and we will party at random places (see locations below). Come and share fine no flake ( flakes ) fun that is free or inexpensive and goes late into the lovely night. Left, right or center, we will live life together and enjoy.

We do some sports related events. Are you interested in teammates players for your sport or hobby? Such as bowling, trivia, camping, biking, hike, hikes, hiking, snowboarder, snowboarding, ski, skiing, kayaking? Or even related to bmi, exercise, fitness, healthy, lock pong, recreation, recreational, outdoor, york Halloween, mammoth mountain, St Patrick's, Ensenada, un scrabble solitaire poker or more!!! We run the range.

A bigger majority of what we are cultural ( culture ), language, travel, music, arts, festival, performance, crave, dining, exotic, restaurant, food, foodie, architecture, art, artistic, urban, or ballet. But it does not stop there. We also do comedy, concert ( concerts ), cook, cooking, theater, theatre, culinary, cultural, tours, sub-culture, subculture sponge ( sponges ), performances, dances, dancing, museums, musical ( musicals ), bars, foodies, dinner, dinning, bbq, beach, restaurants, trips, cruise ( cruises ), cuisine. And even with all that we still to even more!!! Including, flea n farmer (farmers) market ( markets ), boutique, burlesque, crafting, craft, create, creating, sushi, pho, pizza, tastings, tickets, kim chi, tai kimchi, deserts, eating, festivals, film, films, galleries, games, karaoke, movies, sutra kama karma.And now the important question. Did we miss one? Oh. . . OK then, . . Send that so we can add it to the list.

Aside from the High Brow we do engage in the Low Brow such as wine, beer, drink, bar hopping, dive bars ( dives ), rave ( raver ravers raves raving ), hip-hop hiphop, hole holes-in-walls, crawl crawls, trance techno, dubstep, night nightclub, nightlife, nights. As well as classic club clubbing, clubs eclectic, edm electro electronica, pubs, pub speak, speakeasy, drinks, meet meeting mix mixer mixers mixing, greet, happy hour hours haunts, Did somebody say volunteer mingle? Let's DoLA or make a Timeout and TimeoutLA. LAist anyone?

So the High Brow and the Low Brow get together and make up THE KNOW BROW and that is all about people and who makes us up.

By ethnicity we very much match the instagram ethnic makeup of Los Angeles with Caucasian and Non Hispanic Whites, Latino, Black or African American, Native American,Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander and others such as Middle Eastern such as Arab or Israeli, and many more from across the global atlas.

Different than ethnicity is Nationality, or National Origin. And again . . . from that we run the range European, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Pacific Islander, Indian, Taiwanese (Taiwan), Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese ( China, Cantonese, Mandarin ), Hong Kong Mexican ( Mexico ), and more and more. Even USC or UCLA

And that makes for sooooooooo many languages. We like language and the culture it is able to unlock It brings English, Spanish second ESL and ELL and ASL are big here. Hebrew, Yiddish, German, French, And the gamut of others to translate ( translation translator ) with class (classes).

Tolerance is a main tenet here as we are Christian ( Catholic, Mormon, etc), Jewish (Jew Jews), Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, tech Scientology and more. And even Republican, Conservative, Liberal, Democrat, Libertarian, Bernie / BernieCrat, or even Trump or Trumpian or Scientologist. This is a big tent and since it's decent social we will all be decent.

What it comes down to is we are making new friends ( friend freind freinds ) and to be friendly. Almost like finding your entourage Made up of Men (man men's mens) and women ( woman women's ) and non-binary too. Members may be young or old, married, single ( divorce divorced separated and never married ) or coupled (couple as part of a committed relationship / relationships ). Many are likely singles and looking to date in one way or another. Going on dates or dating is fine. But it does NOT happen via using the group like Tinder, Match.com, POF or eharmony.

This group is about real life. So online messaging of people you have not met in real life is not allowed. Why such a rule?

Because it is heterosexist of you to assume that all people are interested in you. Like is says above there are married or those in committed relationships. There is is also the range of sexual preference in the group. Gay, lesbian girls lgbt lgbtq queer bi poly swing swinger swinging and any sort of variation such as transsexual and transgender. We do accept all. Even rs40 and rso40. We do NOT accept SpeedDating or Speedating or whatever you call it. It's forbidden.

Whoever you find cute, hot, sexy or find attraction to that comes in person. Plenty a match and romance or spark may happen. You may find your love (or lover). But you also may just make great friends girlfriend ( girlfriends ). It's just down to good decent social. Conscious communication and engagement that makes for self-improvement and improvement of others. Conversation and network or networking of professionals. That's just smart l33t leet api entrepreneur groupting that will lead to inspirational international consciousness.

We just added Game of Thrones GOT and The Walking Dead viewing parties.

Where do you do events? We do them ALL OVER!!!! I have taken the time to look at past events and the cities they have happened in and near and put it together with the upcoming location too. Our groups IS different, . . . we DO range all over the city. Here are where we HAVE BEEN, and where we are GOING!! All of it is obscure or obscura.

So I have gone in great detail to cover who we are and what we do. This is accurate and verifiable by going to our past events and looking that what we have done. This is all fact based on the breadth, scope and mission of this group.

If you have made it this far. Then watch this and then, . . .get off social media and on meetup. The social part of social media.

Camping Labor Day Weekend: Big Pine Lakes!!! Fishing, Glaciers, Roaring Rivers

First of all, . .Big Pine Lakes is an amazing hidden gem. The water is a crazy hue. The Minarets rising above are stunning. There are amazing places on the way there and nearby as side trips. Such as the Anceint Bristlecone Forest, Mansanar, Alabama Hills, Fossil Falls or Red Rock Canyon (Cantil). There is no fee to enter compared to National Parks like Sequoia ($35 per car) Even with that: You don't see trips often to Big Pine Lakes. This is because area is only open from May to October. The snow is thick even into May and in Oct the nights are below freezing. With such a small window sites are super hard to get. Especially for holiday weekends. AND WE HAVE A GROUP SITE FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!!!!! Our site is amazing. Tons of conveniences. There is a small cafe that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and a small general store with a few necessities for if you need them. Many of the sites have electrical at the site or close by. Same goes for water. Restrooms are close. Space for cars, and an overflow lots near. Best of all . . . There is a Fish Pond!!!!! Stocked with trout. You can even catch dinner. The fish pond is free!!! For fishing you will need to buy (AND HAVE WITH YOU) a fishing licence before you go. They do rent poles at the general store and have bait too. Tons of shade from mature pines for many of the sites We are steps away from the trail-head AND steps away from the roaring glacier fed Big Pine Creek. Drive Time to the site from LA is less time than it takes to get to sites in Sequoia. The site is located at 7,800 ft so it's cooler. For Sequoia is super hot this time of year. For example Canyon View Campground in Kings Canyon/Sequoia is at 4500 ft or so. Super toasty!! After payment is received you will be added to the carpool matrix. The complected matrix will be sent out as it is updated. You only need the basics of camping gear. You will revive a packing and equipment list recommendations . Food: People have soooooooo many specialized diet. It is not feasible to provide food. There will be plenty of sharing. Plenty of fire-rings each with a grill. Rough Itinerary/Schedule Leave LA when you can. Arrive at the campsite as late as you wish. Friday 2:00 PM is the earliest you may arrive. People are still arriving at midnight. The road to the site is not winding. So it's no prob for late. Fri Eve will be Potluck and DrinkLuck. As people arrive they will share and enjoy. Sat AM Hike to Big Pine Lakes. Yes. This trail does allow dogs https://calitrails.com/2014/05/29/hiking-the-north-fork-of-big-pine There are options: Option 1: Lakes 1, 2, & 3.

Multi-Meetup Mixer and then Dance Party @ Exchange LA!

Are you looking to meet some new friends and then check out a cool nightclub and maybe even dance? This is the event to be! Join us for a night of fun meeting new friends. Everyone is from Meetup and ready to mingle. Most people come by themselves so you will not be alone! I know it can be super nerve wrecking to come by yourself but, as long you are friendly and easy going, you will make some friends by the end of the event. We have a private Meetup-only Mixer at the club before it opens to the public. That way everyone from Meetup can meet each other. And when the club opens to the public, you and your new friends can enjoy the rest of the night. The Meetup-only Mixer starts at 8. Following the mixer, we get to stay in the club and dance the night away. The nightclub opens to the public at 10PM (after our private event). You are welcome to stay with your new friends! Did you know Exchange LA is the original Los Angeles Stock Exchange many decades ago?! :) You also get to experience some of the most awesome EDM DJs in the world at Exchange LA (check out www.ExchangeLA.com).

Our event will be held in a private room of Exchange LA with just the Meetup folks. When you arrive we will be at the door to greet you! Since you joined the meetup event you don't have to pay the club cover nor wait in line (which can get looooong! ExchangeLA has some of the best lights and sound systems in the world. Walk around. Enjoy the vibe. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to dance the night away either in our room downstairs or in the main club floor with your new friends! Either way, it's amazing! Join me and other fun peeps at Exchange LA for a great evening. The cost is $10 cash at the door. Please arrive by 9:30PM. If you don't arrive by 9:30PM, you'll miss the meetup and will have to wait outside until after 10pm for the club to open. You will also have to pay at least $20 admission if you arrive after 9:30. Agenda: 8:00 PM to 8:15PM Check-in, grab a drink, say hello to people around you. :) 8:15 PM to 10:00PM - Ice Breaker Game 10:00PM to to 3:00AM - Stick around and mingle or dance the night away at one of the hottest night clubs in Los Angeles! Parking: You can find parking in the area; you will have to pay a small fee for the parking. I normally park a couple of blocks away for $7. Exchange LA Dress Code: http://exchangela.com/venue-policies/ If you would like to have table service or possible get on the guest list the weekends we do not have events, or book table service, please reach our very own promoter, Terry (http://www.meetup.com/members/42279002/). :) Taking the Metro?
