Upcoming events (5+)
***Note Date Changed because private event booked for entire venue, sorry guys*** LA is a big city with so many great people to network with. But how valuable is it to be in a city with great networking opportunities if you don't get out and network. And this spot is an amazing little gem in the Arts District to hang out! Let's all meet at Two Bit Circus for networking while exploring the latest and greatest VR entertainment to hit the Los Angeles area and possibly the greatest in the US. We will be hanging out near the center bar at the first floor next to the LED tree and the robotic bartender (yeah I really said that, this place is crazy cool). RSVPing early helps us keep track of attendance and also helps support the LA startups and creative tech professional groups up, which do other professional networking events even outside of meetup in the area. You are still welcome to go to Two Bit Circus at the Meetup of course. The idea for this mixer is there will be local fun looking folks folks or other interested people who are there to mingle and network with other creatives and tech professionals in a more relaxed setting. And whenever they feel like relaxing they can go explore the arcade and check out the VR! Parking can be found early on at the actual game bar's lot (although it fills quickly) or on Parkopedia for paid lots nearby, along with street parking. Although Ubering is also a nice alternative coming here, as it is a little sketchy downtown and safety is our #1 concern, especially going home after enjoying the libations from the bar.

[Subtitle] *********************************😂😂😂 A Korean crime/ comedy/ rookie cop buddy movie? I am here for it!!! This looks like a lot of fun and thrills with apparently a lot of fighting too. Let's watch this and enjoy the mayhem, high jinks, and the pursuit. Film Review(August 2017/109 Minutes): Midnight Runners (Korean: 청년경찰; Hanja: 靑年警察; RR: Cheongnyeon gyeongchal; lit. Young Cop) – Park Seo-joon, Kang Ha-neul play crime-fighting rookies in hugely entertaining buddy cop thriller! After witnessing an abduction, a slow-witted jock and shy bookworm join forces to try to rescue the victim, leading to a night of comedic high jinks and shocking revelations After attracting recognition for his low-budget debut Koala, writer-director Kim Joo-hwan strides confidently into the commercial arena with Midnight Runners. It’s a fast-paced buddy cop thriller that proves the perfect star vehicle for young heartthrobs Park Seo-joon ( The Beauty Inside ) and Kang Ha-neul ( Mourning Grave ). At Seoul’s prestigious Police University, slow-witted jock Gi-jun (Park) and shy bookworm Hee-yeol (Kang) make an unlikely pair, but on a rare night out must become a formidable crime-fighting force, after witnessing the abduction of a young woman. Turning to the authorities for support, their pleas fall on deaf ears as the police are preoccupied with a high-profile kidnapping case. Gi-jun and Hee-yeol have no alternative but to investigate the abduction themselves, leading to a night of comedic high jinks and shocking revelations as they learn to apply both their deductive and combat training in the real world.... (South China Morning Post) Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyVk51ksx4o AFTER THE MOVIE: Let's go get some snacks/drinks and chat about the movie and life :-) Sometimes we walk and sometimes go to our fave pub in Ktown. PARKING: There is a big free parking lot in the back of the building. The parking entrance is on Dunsmuir Street side. KCCLA is right next to El Rey Theatre. Entrance into KCCLA is in the parking lot. It closes around 10p. We appreciate any and all donations so we can continue to offer more diverse tours and events.

Agua Caliente Mineral Springs Campground
Many of us have heard of "The Bride to Nowhere" hike in LA. Some have even gone on it. After all . . . It's not too hard of a hike and it's not too far away. Goat Cyn Trestle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Drvc9ID6yJU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E14QT58EJU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsHT6dfRFyU And if you like reading https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/goat-canyon-trestle or https://hiddensandiego.net/goat-canyon-trestle.php The second one he takes the approach from the north side and goes on tracks. That's MUCH longer. We are taking the route in from The east. Less miles, and also more rustic. Plain and simple this place is AMAZING. But it's far. As in too far to drive there and start the hike. So we will camp close by. This is easy camping, a hard hike and for those that wish it, . . . culture vulture tour on Sunday. The itinerary: Fri (eve): Robolights Sat: Goat Canyon Trestle Bridge Hike from Mortero Palms 5.5 to 6.4 round trip ELEVATION GAIN 2,200 to 2,513 feet https://modernhiker.com/hike/goat-canyon-trestle-via-mortero-palms/ This is in contrast to the route in from the north at 13.9 miles round trip ELEVATION GAIN 4,202 feet that takes the tracks. Even at the 6 miles round trip we will do: this is a desert hike. And THIS is why we are doing it in Jan the coolest time of year. On Saturday after the hike we will drive to Fonts Point for Sunset then through Galleta Meadows as the sky darkens and back to our campsite or a soak in the mineral pools till 9PM Font's Point https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs2PE6rYyXE Galleta Meadows in Anza-Borrego https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wu3Q7pRvhp4 This one vid shows The Slot and a lot of Font's Point. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKGHAaX2GX0 The whole flat lakebed parts we are not going to I suggest you just google "Font's Point Sunrise" in google images. Sunday - There are options: One option is to drive home taking the cultural wasteland tour route: Obsidian Buttes Mud Volcanoes Salvation Mtn East Jesus Bombay Beach The International Banana Museum The Dinos at Cabozan. and maybe "The Pumpkin Patch" The other Sunday option is: "The Slot" or Calcite Mine Slot Canyon or Arroyo Tapiado Mud Caves Making options as Goat Cyn is a tough one. You might be blown for a second hike after. And two hikes on Sun will be too much. We will pack in a LOT!!! Here is Friday: Robolights info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weu7VGNQdzU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAwCvkMWY80 https://qz.com/1164453/kenny-irwin-and-robolights-his-backyard-in-palm-springs-is-a-theme-park/ Accommodations: We will be staying place called Agua Caliente.
