We can decide if people want to meet up before or after the workshop to sign, swap, or talk postcards. We can either bring blankets and sit on the grass in Hancock Park or snag some of the tables in the LACMA courtyard. LACMA and The Page Museum are right across the street and both have gift shops that sell postcards.

Sounds good BUT too far for a day trip and Sundays are bad for me. As we get closer to the date I will keep an eye out to see if I can make it work at all.

Best wishes - sounds fun with venue and craft exhibit

@sybil31562 - thanks for the tip :)

@Cardiffgal - Thanks for posting here, Lori. Sorry the location doesn't work well for you. Have you made it to any of the San Diego meetups?

Anyone else interested?

This sounds like fun and close. My day is open, I just have to be back home no later than 5 to head to my bowling league on Sunday night. So I can meet any time in the morning, hit the event, and head home. Let me know. I am interested in attending.

How about meeting at the LACMA courtyard at 11:00 am?

We can meetup, sign postcards, swap, etc. and then people can choose to go over to the craft event at the Craft & Folk Art Museum later if they want.

Here's a facebook event, for those who use it:

Sounds good to me.
Do you know how much parking is, or if there is free parking?

Hi kindred_spirit,

There are a couple of parking options in that area.

The parking structures at LACMA ($10) or the Petersen Museum $4/hour ($12 max) or Museum Square parking on Curson.

I usually park on 6th street in metered parking. I don't remember for sure if the meters don't run on Sundays, but usually that's a cheaper option.


More details:
LACMA's has two paid parking garages: $10 to park in either the Pritzker Parking Garage on Sixth St, just east of Fairfax Ave, or the parking lot on the corner of Wilshire Blvd at Spaulding Ave.

Petersen Museum parking lot located on the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax, $4/hour ($12 max)

Electric Vehicles: Free charging stations are available on the first level of the Pritzker Parking Garage, courtesy of Nissan.

By bus: Metro 20 & 720 on Wilshire and 217, 218 and 780 on Fairfax all stop within half a block of LACMA.

Two quick reminders... Sunday is the LA Marathon and the day we "spring forward" to adjust for daylight saving time. So adjust your transportation & clocks accordingly. :)

@kindred_spirit great question! I thought we could meet in the plaza, at the tables in front of the Hammer Building

How does that sound?

Ok, I will try to find it. I have never been there, very sad. I will look for people with lots of postcards. I assume we are bringing postcards to write?

Yes! Bring any postcards you'd like to write, or postcards you'd like to have the other meetup attendees sign.

At the last meetup, we spent quite a bit of time passing around postcards for all of the attendees to sign. :)
