UPDATE – See y’all at 8pm at Musso & Frank!

Musso-Frank-MartinisTwo weeks ago we scheduled our first meetup at the Tonga Hut and 20 people showed up. It went so smoothly and was so fun that it was decided to hold a similar event every two weeks at a classic Los Angeles locale and another was scheduled for tonight at Musso & Frank. Originally figuring it would be another 20 people, last weekend I spoke to Musso’s about reserving a booth or two. Ha ha… that was so last week! On our Facebook invite alone we now have 54 people reserved to come and 54 maybes so those two booths would be a little crowded.

I don’t know how many people to truly expect, especially since a lot of people don’t have Facebook, but Jordan (the owner of Musso’s, who has been awesome!) and I have decided that we’re up for the challenge. Please bear with us if you show up and it gets crowded, we’re going to do everything we can to be ready for you. It’s just a strange situation, having our readership go up about 2,000% in one week. Not something that happens very often or that we were expecting.

Moral of the story, I hope to see you tonight. And if when you see me I look a little tired… well, just bear with me. It’s been a crazy week.

WHEN: Thursday, February 11, 2010, 8pm – 10pm
WHERE: Musso & Frank, 6667 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 

In *my* book,in Hollywood offers the best prohibition-era cocktails in town… so let’s get together and embrace “the depth beneath the shallow” of an old-school martini glass! Their gin martinis and sidecars are awesome!

LA Time Machines awarded Musso & Frank its top award: Best Restaurant in the World. “This is really not subject to debate – where else in the world can you find a place that combines so much history of the movies and TV, and Hollywood, including the history of many of the world’s greatest musicians, directors, actors and writers. This in conjunction with great service (taking into account the unique and unparalleled personalities of the staff), a perfect “time machine” interior, nice and enlightened owners, and fantastic food. A totally non-controversial decision!”

Parking in the back is pretty cheap with validation. Their food is good… it can get pricey if you order carelessly, but there are very reasonable options. How much you spend is entirely up to you. The bar can get busy and is not always the easiest place to strike up conversations with people, so we will be booking tables… look for us in the three booths at the back of the bar.

  1. Oooh sounds like fun! I hope you had a great turnout, everyone had a swell time, and Musso’s got a lot of folks that will now become repeat customers!

      It was great! Musso’s pulled tables out of the bar dining room so we could have a cocktail party there. About 60 wonderful people showed, and I think Musso’s did well. By the end, the owner and his dad were standing there with big grins on their faces, just marvelling at our group. The owner even said that since the first day I spoke to him about planning the meetup even HIS friends had joined our Facebook page! It’s been a crazy week, that’s for sure. In a good way! :)
