Congratulation on looking ahead on the calendar and fining the "secret" events that are not yet announced.
This event is posted but not "announced."
In some cases this is ready to announce. And it will be announced about one(1) month before the event date with finalized details.
It is still in progress of being "written up." And in others it is in need of something like an Event Host.
You are encouraged to RSVP now and you will get sure to get updates.
If you would like to host this event as the primary or as an additional Event Host . . . please message Mac and say you would like to Host.
Let's take a break and hang out at a place with games and drinks, and this time I'm not talking about going to Dave & Busters. Get ready for a blast from the past as this arcade has a collection of pinball and older arcade games from the 80s and 90s you no longer find at the other places. The arcade games only cost 25 cents to play, and the pinball machines only 50 cents. Bring some $1s, $5s or $20s with you to convert into change as the machines actually still accept quarters (no re-chargeable cards here).
Eighty Two regularly rotates their collection of machines on hand. See the current one's here: http://eightytwo.la/games/.
Let's not forget to mention the drinks. The cocktail menu is as varied as the game list, and there are 10 beers on tap. http://eightytwo.la/drinks/
Finding the group:
We'll try and snag a table as a base of operations and post where we are in the comments.
Getting Here (Metro):
The Little Tokyo Metro Gold Line station is only two blocks away: https://goo.gl/maps/xArN7hbyriv.
Take either the Expo or Blue line to 7th St./Metro Center, transfer to the Red Line to Union Station and transfer one more time to the Gold Line towards Little Toyko.
There are several parking options nearby including at the Tokyo Marketplace across the street and a couple of (possibly cheaper) options near the intersection of 4th Street and 4th Place https://goo.gl/maps/47HHgNQrqmF2. Parking rates around here can be unpredictable depending on day and time of arrival.
There's also nearby free and metered street parking if you are lucky enough to find one. Check the meter for hours of enforcement before paying; its better to waste your quarters on the machines inside the arcade than these one's outside.
