Room Parties / things to do in LA post  

Spammity spam spam spam!

Here it is y’all, the thread to post your room party invitations. Please respond in comments (I’ve turned the notifier off, so post away) if you plan on having any kind of gathering in your room or elsewhere over the weekend and you want people to know about it. Before you post though, be sure to read this post regarding alcohol and room parties before solidifying your details.

But wait! There’s more…

On Saturday night, we have some unofficial, official goings on that you might be interested in as well. Some of us locals are gonna volunteer (limited space, so have a plan b) to take y’all out on the town (probably to West Hollywood for dancing, possibly to some live music, I have people looking into the different possibilities, which as you can imagine are myriad in this town.) To get on board for this, we’ll meet in the lobby of the hotel around 10pm on Saturday, and pair off from there.

Also, there is one of the oldest strip club /adult toy and video stores in Los Angeles, The Century Lounge, a very short walk from our hotel that may prove to be an exciting adventure (18 and up is ok) should anyone choose to gather and go. They’re open until 4am on Friday and Saturday and specialize in completely nude dancing, so there is no alcohol served in the bar. I think Dean himself would be very disappointed in all of us if only one trip was made.

Finally, the hotel is on a trolley route with several other hotels in the area for trips to the Manhattan Beach Pier and adjacent shopping center. This service runs from about 10am to 10 pm, 7 days a week. See HERE for a pdf file of the route and schedule. The stop closest to our hotel is located just across the street in the Westin Hotel parking lot. Best of all, the trolley is FREE! I think Sam himself would be disappointed if y’all came all this way to California and didn’t take a minute to see the ocean. 


P.S. If any of y’all are interested in a little poker action on Saturday night after the dinner, email me at coiledsoul at gmail dot com and I’ll see what we can do about that. Prepare to lose your shirts, and your milk money. ;)

I'm going to the Griffith Observatory on Sunday night at 7PM. This place is amazing; probably most famous for its supporting role in Rebel Without A Cause.

Entry to the observatory is timed. You need to buy a reservation for a seat on the shuttle bus that goes up to the observatory from the LA Zoo. As said, I'm going at 7PM. If anybody wants to tag along, they're welcome. Tickets purchasable from the link above up to 48 hours in advance or something like that.

Oooh. That is one of the places I definitely want to visit.

I can volunteer to assist for the Sat. outing as well- though I have only been a local for a few months- 4 door Honda Accord at your service though.

I'm driving, and I'm not much for drinking, so if anyone has plans that require an extra sober driver, just let me know.

Rocky Horror YAY!
HI GUYS. So there was a post but it was wrong so here is the real one.

There's a ton of us (so many I don't even know) going to a ROCKY HORROR SHOW on Sat night. This is indeed when the group outing is, but guys, there are some AWESOME people there, I know this, okay? Um, we're going to the Nuart Theater in West LA (9 miles from the hotel). This is the sins o' the flesh group, info here. We have SOME drivers, but need as many as possible.

Group rates are available after 25. We have 20 or so now, so HAI THAR, we want you and your car! (tickets are 9.50 if we don't get 25)

Please to be emailing me at shewasagirl at gmail if you want to go, or dropping a comment here :) I want everyone's emails for coordination issues. We'll be leaving like 10:30ish and getting our own supplies earlier in the day, so. Veterans and virgins wanted!

I'm gonna stick my neck out and test the waters for an outing to The Century Lounge (see post above) Thursday night. It would be after dinner and maybe even a bit later, like post cocktail hour(s).

Is there any interest in doing this. It's apparently a close walk from the hotel.
moveablehistory on October 8th, 2007 11:36 pm (UTC)
I think I might have to join you, unless I'm so knackered I can't walk, heh. :))

A bunch of us are hoping to watch the episode together in a room on Thursday night, if anyone's on there own and fancy joining with the fangirls leave your number and we'll see if we can hook you up. It should be great to watch an ep in a group if we can.

I may have to wander by at some point. I know there has been talk of porny pajama partying, but the where and when has not yet been discussed. :)

I'm organizing a sunset horseback trail ride in the Topanga Canyon area on Sunday. I took this ride in August when I was out in the LA, and it was fantastic. You get unbelievable views of the LA area (weather permitting), the ride lasts 90 minutes over interesting terrain, the guide is entertaining but also attentive to safety issues, and the horses are well cared for and obviously well loved. You can check out the barn offering the ride here: http://www.topangahorses.readywebsites.com/index.html

The ride will last from 5-6:30pm, but all riders will need to be at the barn by 4:30. That means we'll need to leave the hotel around 3:30, 3:45 at the latest. I will have a rental car and can take up to 3 additional passengers (one slot is already filled).

The ride costs $90. The fee must be paid in cash at the time of the ride, and it includes a gratuity for the guide.

The barn has a very strict policy of NO cancellations. If you don't show up for the ride, my credit card (which they take at the time I make the reservation) will be charged for the full amount. Therefore, PLEASE don't ask me to make a reservation for you unless you are sure you can make it.

If you'd like to go on the ride, please email me ASAP (my email address is on my LJ userinfo page) with the following information: your height, weight, and riding ability (if you're not a beginner, go here to figure out how to classify your skill level: http://www.topangahorses.readywebsites.com/ability.html). They need this info so that they can assign you an appropriate horse. The guide told me that they can accommodate riders of almost any height or weight.

I'll make the initial reservation later this week, but I spoke to the barn manager this morning, and she said that right now, they have plenty of slots open. That means we may have the option of adding riders up to Sunday afternoon if they don't fill up.

Drop me an email if you have any questions.

deansbear25 and I are bringing up S1 and S2 dvds as well as House of Wax, Cry-wolf, and Devour, and if nothing else is going down at a given time, a-watchin' and a-drinkin' a-squeein' might be fun ;) I'll be wearing my "Home is Where Metallicar Is" red-sleeved baseball tee for any of ya'll who wanna find me!
