Up for a Los Angeles Pre-BlogHer '10 Meetup?

Update, 7/12/10: The Los Angeles Pre-BlogHer '10 Meetup will begin at 3 pm on Sat., July 17, at Mel's Drive-In, 1660 N. Highland Ave., in Hollywood!

Mel's Drive-In is located at 1660 N. Highland Ave., on the southeast corner of the Hollywood and Highland intersection. Take the Metro red line or one of the many Metro bus lines serving the area (Google Maps includes Metro transit directions; just click on public transit) to avoid road rage or parking fees. For those who need to drive, there's 1-hour validated parking at the restaurant -- though since you'll probably want to stay a little longer to meet everyone, you might want to park at Hollywood and Highland, which offers 4 hours of parking for $2 -- with validation from a business in the complex (not Mel's).

I have made a reservation for us under my name (Siel) in the bar area -- which is supposed to be not too crowded (tourist season's already begun!) and not too noisy (adults only). There, we can order food, and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Happy hour prices ($2.50 cocktails and $1.50 beers) kick in at 4 pm.

The meetup's tentatively scheduled to last 2 hours, but of course everyone's welcome to linger for longer :)

Please RSVP to me either via a comment or by emailing me (greenlagirl at gmail dot com) to let me know you'll be there! If you are forgetful and don't think you'll remember to check back on this post, I suggest that you RSVP via email so I can email you a reminder with the exact location :)

Hello fellow L.A.-area BlogHers! BlogHer '10 is coming up, and the Los Angeles Pre-BlogHer '10 Meet-up is coming up even faster -- as long as we plan it on time!

Whether or not you plan to go to NYC in August, you're invited to the meet-up. The meetups are just that -- not a conference, not a hosted party. We'll get a chance to meet locally, hang out, chat, and talk blogs :)

So -- To start -- Let's pick a date and place!

1. Which of these three Saturday afternoons work best for you?

- July 10th
- July 17th
- July 24th

2. Which popular L.A. destination would you prefer?

- in or near Farmers Market / The Grove
- in or near Hollywood and Highland
- on or near Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica
- in or near Old Town Pasadena

Get your votes in via the comments over the weekend so we can settle on a spot and time -- and start planning :) Happy July, everyone!
