    So, we were talking about it in the ambassador thread. It might be a good idea to not feel overdressed once in a lifetime, so how about a SF LA meeting?

    We could do the Tim Burton exhibition if everyone's up for it and then have drinks/dinner/DUI tickets at some place nice. In any case, I'm open to any ideas as I'm sure others are too.

    I suggest an approximate date of 2 weeks from now, which would be July 30th on Saturday. Would there be enough interest on the MC side for this to happen?

    Maybe its because no one was in their cars this weekend.

    Or because nobody wants to see Tim Burton's goth finger painting

    Well, we don't have to go there. I really don't care where to go, just presenting an idea. The lack of enthusiasm is not surprising. I don't see many well-dressed people in LA.

    I'm going to be heading into Irvine through LA that day for an 8PM show. If the meeting time fits, I'd be up for it.

    I always figured it was because there's so many tourists here it just makes it seem worse than it really is.

    I'm mildly surprised this thread even got started. Where can you actually buy decent clothing in Los Angeles anymore?

    We'd be more than happy to host a "pre-game" meet up if you guys are interested. Just let me know.

    :cheers:

    Well, jeesh- now that was an offer from heaven.

    If the LA crew can't pull together a get together with that, you'll be officially in the same boat as LA-NFL: every decade or so we'll wonder why not.

    I'll be in LA the first week in August if you happen to meet up up during the week. Going to stop by Leather Soul at some point regardless.

    That is a great offer! Let's do this, guys! I've been wanting to stop by Leather Soul for a while anyway.

    I could offer some nice places for dinner, but I'd love to hear other people speak up. I need to expand my horizons. :D

    So, July 30th doesn't work for you? We could move it a week, I'm not specific about the dates. What's the best way to figure out the date? Set up a poll?
