Confirmed: We are going to meet Saturday night at 9:30PM after the fundraising banquet. The meetup will take place at the hotel bar. If we get there slightly before 9:30, we will have a chance to steal all the good seats at the bar!
I just visited the bar tonight and there is plenty of space. I'll find a place to put up the signs so people can connect with each other. We'll either be on the couches lining the bar or on the couches in the lobby area, or both.
The hotel bar validates parking, giving you 2 hours free and $6 for the hour after that. Otherwise parking is $6 for the first hour, $5 for the next hour, and so on. In other words, parking could get pretty expensive unless you validate at the hotel bar.
If you're interested in attending the conference, call[masked] and identify yourself as a member of Vegan Drinks. You will be entitled to a $20 discount from the $160 full registration fee.
This will be a good opportunity to mingle with people attending the conference, as well as introduce LA people at the conference to Vegan Drinks. See you there!
