Announcing a new Meetup for Pub Crawlers of Downtown Los Angeles!What:
Art Walk for May 2009! Ending at the Broadway Bar!When:
May 14,[masked]:00 PM
All over Downtown!Honorable Pub Crawlers!
Let's mix it up a bit for this May's Downtown Art Walk
We've been having a great time at these, but perhaps we've fallen into a bit of a rut? Well, thanks to some great planning on behalf of Chris of A Downtown Los Angeles Meetup
- we're going to do a huge, triple group ArtWalkPocolypse!
This will be a co-organized meetup by:
1. PUB CRAWLERS OF DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (That's us!)
2. THIRSTY THURSDAYS
3. A DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES MEETUP
Ending at a party at BROADWAY BAR
with $3 STELLA DE OROS as well as DJ'S playing DUB, REGGAE, ELECTRO, and SOUL all night long!
The general idea of this art walk meetup extravaganza is to make a big loop through the main art walk route while cavorting, gawking, admiring, as well as eating, and drinking the entire way through. We will gather at the Broadway Bar between 6pm - 6:30pm and then start our art walking at about 6:30ish pm. Our loop starts at Broadway Bar - West on 9th St., - then bend left or - Northeast on Main St. - toward the corner of 4th and Main Streets. We take a 1/2 hour pit stop between 5th and 4th street on Main St. (attractions: galleries, artists, coffee, Peet's Cafe, and Bar 107). Then we loop up to Spring street and start walking back towards the Broadway Bar. We take another 1/2 hour pit stop between 6th and 7th streets on Spring (highlights: fire-grilled kebabs, galleries, artists, and 626 Reserve - a wine bar). We walk the final bit together as a group to the Broadway Bar - where they will be throwing us our party, playing music all night long, serving $3 Stellas, and giving our groups priority door reservations all night long.
The idea is that there is freedom for everybody to check out the art that they like. Feel free to stop where you like and for as long as you like. If you want to stick with the a group - then Bill, Rob, and Chris will be guiding people along the loop. The two scheduled pit stops allow for people to catch up with the group (especially if you are arriving to the meetup a little late) and check out some venues and activities that are taking place nearby. Or just meet us back at the Broadway Bar at 9:15pm where we will be having our after-art walk/after-party.Note:

Seriously, this is likely to be one of the biggest, most fun joint meetups Downtown this year - I will not be surprised if there are over 100 of us total. Both of the other groups are fantastic and full of great people. The city on Artwalk nights is an experience unlike anything else in LA - cool, urban and excellent.
Don't miss this one!
See you there!
