Yeah for this!

We will be at the Marriott Live, near the Staples Center, but can grab a cab anywhere reasonable.

Can't wait to finally put faces to "names".

If you can make it, we'll make sure you can get here! I'm in the West LA/Culver City area. Sparky/tim are in the Long Beach area. Cortot/kyle/lost are farther east, in the Glendora/SGV area.

Not sure yet if we can host at our house, but that's a possibility for now.

Timing...probably evening?

Earlier is better for me. Have to head out later to Ontario for NWIWC Wine Judging. Have to check in and be ready to start drinking ... err, spitting wine early the next morning!

Probably need to leave by 7pm.


Should be SoCal #43. 42 was your housewarming with the Sisks.

If one of you SGV folks can host, that means Sparky has less of an excuse to bail early! We would have to go by downtown and could pick up our guests anyway.

Yes! You must come! I have been a dedicated Fred follower for "daily drinker" cabs. In fact, I'll admit that my very first woot was...

Wait for it...

Copa Cab! About 3 years ago when you liked it. It was great for my dad (palate shot long ago) so no worries. Love Ardente, Slingshot, etc.

Please come!

We fly in Saturday morning. I've requested early check in at the hotel. As long as we can get checked in early, will work for us.

If the offer of a ride is still available, we will take you up on it. We are not picking up a rental car until Wednesday.

Sounds good, except I won't have to leave early, but will be late as usual (probably around 5:30 to 6pm) on the 20th.


Earlier event at Santa Anita, so will head out from it around 4 or 4:30. Wine Judging is the next weekend!


Also, need address, or it will only be Regret!
