In our many years of blogging about this city we’ve had plenty of public gatherings where we’ve forced writers and readers to occupy the same physical space and have very little blood loss to blame on it. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that actually some of these events have been “fun.” The one thing they have all had in common though, is they have been central or east side and definitely nothing further west than the 405. Well that all changes this weekend when we have the first ever westside LA metblogs get together, and we want to see you there!
The details are this: Sunday, September 6th – 4pm at Intelligentsia Venice (1331 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA). This is exciting for another reason because the folks at Intelligentsia have offered to fire up the legendary 1972 La Marzocco machine just for us. If that means nothing to you, don’t worry the rough translation is there will be especially awesome coffee available to those of us who want it. Depending on how many people show up we may just take over the entire place, or maybe just the the back seats. Guess we’ll see. If you think you can make it please say so in the comments so we can get a rough idea how many people to expect. Expect the event to be highly blogged, photo’d and tweeted of course. All readers, writers and other bloggers are invited so pass it on!
