Berkeley Empeg Owner's Barbecue

When: Monday October 13th at 6:00PM

Where: Berkeley, CA

RSVP: PM on the empeg Board to matthew_k, or email to kocher at uclink dot berkeley dot edu.

Feel free to show up anytime after six. The general plan will be to check out installs in the parking lot while people arrive, then move inside for some BBQ tri-tip, BBQ tandori chicken and anything else we have to throw on the grill. For vegetarians there will probably be some kind of pasta, and grilled tomatoes and other vegetables. If you donít mind, a couple bucks per person towards the food costs would be much appreciated by a Starving College Student.

It'll be BYOB, so bring something you'd like to drink. I'll cover the basics to get us started, but I won't have much on hand.

Directions: PM or Email to RSVP, and Iíll send you the directions.

Matthew

If you get a PM, I think you're coming. If you didn't get a PM, let me know. I didn't put anyone besides Rob as a Plus One, If you're bringing other people, let me know...

I'm only PMing directions as my empeg lives where the meet is, as you can never been too paranoid. If a week and a half from now you're thinking about coming and havn't rsvp'd just send me a message or get the directions from someoen who's going, no need to worry.

For those of you who got directions already, apperently it was a bit too early in the morning for me to be doing logical work. I'll send out a revised edition this evening.

What's the word on Socal? If you guys are willing to come down to San Diego, I know a great place for fish tacos. If not, is anything happening in Los Angeles?

We'll be in LA for a couple of days or so. There's a loose plan to go to Universal and Six Flags, if I can talk Patrick into it. It's not really tied down yet, but I'd guess we'll be heading out to Vegas on the Sunday to get good room rates.

Anyone else in the Valley, LA, OC, or San Diego want to pull something together? Speak up!

After doing all of the touristy stuff, what kind of food and drink are you curious about? LA's interpretation of a pub? Drinks with umbrellas near the beach? A classic Hollywood dive bar? A scene from =Swingers=?

Rob, I'll drop you an email with my phone numbers and stuff.

I would like to have participated, since I live in L.A., but I will be out of town that week. Have fun here guys. Six Flags is cool, Universal Studios is kind of over-rated IMHO. Being geeks, be sure and check out a Fry's, either here or in San Francisco. The Getty is good if you are into museums, and a walk around downtown Hollywood is good for a laugh or two. All-in-all though, there is surprisingly little to do in this town compared to, say, San Fran or Vegas.

It sounds like Los Angeles on Friday the 17th and/or Saturday the 18th, then.

I recommend the Getty as well. That is one F'n amazing piece of architecture. I guess the art inside was pretty cool too.

Ditto. I haven't been to the Getty, though. There's also the La Brea Tar Pits, which is good for an afternoon, and LACMA if you're into standing around looking at ugly paintings. If you know what type of food you want, I can recommend some good places -- Italian, sushi, vietnamese, korean BBQ, mexican, whatever. You're pretty much SOL if you want good Greek, though.

If you want to do some hiking, I can point you to some nice spots for that, too.

Anyone else here in LA besides ninti and I? I know there's gotta be some -- the Al & Ed's I had do my install has done a half dozen of 'em over the years...
