Irvine Improv - Free tickets available for SoCal Singles members and friends!

Hi Everyone, Our friend Jim Taylor has invited our SoCal Singles members to a terrific event at the Irvine Improv. Jim always brings Top Headline comedians to his events. As a member of So Cal Singles, we have arranged FREE TICKETS for you and your friends. _______________ Hello!! I do have free tickets to this show. Just RSVP here! If your Meet Up name is not your full name please email me at [masked] with Full Name: # of tickets: and they will be waiting for you at the Irvine Improv box office. If you email me, I will email you back a confirmation. I will be in the patio bar from 6:00 to 7:30. If you are coming alone and don't know anybody please call or text me when you get there and I will introduce you to the people I know. My cell is[masked]. Doors open at 7:30 - Show starts at 8:00 The Irvine Improv does have a 2 item minimum purchase requirement. ________________________________________________________ Please note our comic lineup for this event is usually posted here about 10-14 days prior to the event. Jim always has top comedy talent that you have seen on TV, major clubs, Las Vegas showrooms and cruise ships. The line up will be listed here soon. ______________________________________________________ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR MONTHLY IRVINE IMPROV EVENT: Hello! I have been getting a few questions about the monthly meet up at the Irvine Improv so I thought I would address them here. The show starts at 8:00 PM and is over at 9:30 PM. "I don't want to come by myself" From 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM I am in the patio bar next to the box office. Some people meet there ahead of time and go into the Improv together. I also try and introduce people the best I can. You can call or text me at[masked]. "Is there a reserved section in the club for Meet Up?" There used to be, but if you have been around Meet Up for a while you know as many as 50 percent of the people who RSVP don't actually come. That is hard on the venues because they like to seat front to back, and wind up with empty seats all around the middle. So now if members want to sit together they have to enter the club together. "Are the tickets really free?" The admission fee is waived if you are on the list the box office has up front. I compile the names of everyone who RSVP's here or emails me directly. That goes into a spreadsheet that I provide to the box office. When you arrive you give them your name, and they hand you a ticket for you and your guests. "What is the 2 item minimum?" The Improv has a requirement that everyone purchase at least two items from their menu. They can be soft drinks all the way to full entrees. They also have this requirement on their weekend premium shows as well. "Is the show dirty?" The comics performing at these shows tend to avoid dropping F-Bombs and going to extremes. They are notified in advance of the demographic, and that the audience is typically not fond of that sort of comedy and they act accordingly. Every now and then somebody doesn't get the memo, but that is rare. We try to be Funny not Filthy, Risqué not Raunchy. "When is the latest I can RSVP?" I would prefer that after 5:00 PM on the day of the show you call, or text me. There is a lot of prep work involved and I usually am not monitoring Meet Up that late before a show. That said, I can get your names on the list right up until about 7:30. After that I have to go inside and prep the comics. I have been doing this show at the Improv for almost 5 years now, with[masked] people attending, and usually about 25 percent are Meet Up members. I am not allowed to advertise free tickets, but I am allowed to offer them to Meet Up members, and people on my own email lists. Not everyone gets in free :-) I hope you can make the next show Jim Taylor [masked]

{Free} Visit the LA Ghost Town of Surfridge AND Dunes Restoration volunteering!!

This event initially scheduled for March 2nd. This event clearly listed as "Rain cancels event." As of now rain is forecast at 100% for this Sat. Event is being rescheduled to April 6th. That's the first Saturday of April. This event is put on by the The Bay Foundation monthly. It's on the group maybe only once or twice a year. Let's meetup and April 6th and have some fun at the dunes cleaning them up. Most people like Ghost-Towns and abandoned areas. Often they are in the hinterlands. However we DO have one right here under our noses. You have driven past it or flown over it. It's the town of Surfridge . . . The original residents were a now extinct giant camel called Camelops (not making this up). They died out and in the 1920's high end beach front development that fell out of favor during The Great Depression and had a revival in the late 40's . Then an airport really took off from props to jets and from the 60's to the mid 80's it was systematically de-populated. Now we are left with a vanished city. Palm tree lined streets, curbs and driveway leading to nothing. All of this fenced in behind barbed wire. And even still with 1920's street lights that still turn on at night for the streets with no residents. (not making this up). The area has been turned into a butterfly preserve. (I am not making this up). AND WE GET TO GO IN IT. With permission we get to go behind the barbed wire. Heal The Bay and Friends of the LAX Dunes (FOLD) are having a work-day cleanup removing non-native plants. Come and see our history and do some good at the same time. Meet new friends and sweat with them. And if we are really lucky, . . . you can call out the the butterflies to warn them not to fly too high and when a jet is flying overhead get sucked into the intake resulting in a Jet Butter Strike (I am making that part up). https://youtu.be/U4UIujUMuRk • Largest dunes complex in Southern California • Once extended from Palos Verdes to Santa Monica • About 50,000 years old • Bones of an extinct member of the camel family were found (Camelops, Camelops hersternus) • The neighborhood north of the dunes was once called ‘Palisades del Rey,’ today Playa del Rey • The neighborhood that once inhabited the dunes was called ‘Surfridge’ • In the 1920s, ‘Palisades del Rey’ was the place to be; Spanish-style villas housed the rich & famous • 1928 — Mines Field opened, a small airport later to be known as LAX (1941) • 1930s — The area fell into decline after the Great Depression • 1940s—1950s — After WWII, the area revived and 600 more modest homes were built • As LAX grew and planes got louder, Surfridge residents started to complain about noise and soot. Since nothing could done to alleviate the problem, through eminent domain, the City of LA purchase all the homes and forced residents to move, a process that happened from the late-1960s to the early 1980s. • Today, the LAX Dunes (aka El Segundo Dunes) is about 300-acres, mostly designated a protected wildlife Preserve. The LAX El Segundo Dunes Preserve is the largest remaining fragment of the El Segundo Dunes complex, and provides habitat for over 900 species, some of which cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. It is home to the beautiful and delicate federally endangered El Segundo Blue Butterfly, and other rare plant, animal, and insect species.Friends of the LAX Dunes (FOLD) is a partnership of community organizations, corporate sponsors, and dedicated individuals working to promote the Los Angeles World Airport’s LAX Adopt-a-Dune program. The LAX Adopt-a-Dune Program provides an opportunity for volunteers to help care for and learn about their natural environment.Your help is needed to remove invasive plants so native vegetation and animals can thrive. FOLD hosts a restoration event the first Saturday of every month from 9 AM to Noon (unless it is a holiday weekend or it’s raining).
