Hey guys, I'll be working over in L.A. Thursday-Sunday and would like to offer the beverage of your choice if anyone would like to get together informally Friday afternoon/evening. That's right, I'm buying the first round. It's the least I can do for all the help and support you all have offered in the last six months. It would be nice to put some faces with the names. Plus I have a whole stack of free drink coupons for NAB here in Vegas next month.

I'm staying in Burbank but have transpo with GPS. Any place, any time is fine.

Any takers?

I suggest Jumbo's Clown room, since Ron and BJ will already be there.

There is always Fuddruckers. (careful with that word!)
Fuddruckers was the very first meeting place of the Steadicam Guild... very historic place. I have pictures of it somewhere..

Lately we've been meeting at Lucy's 51 which is Burbank adjacent. This is more like a Vampire's den. Dark place with Red tones and strange furniture.

Both places are a bit on the noisy side but fun and both have booze. (that is if you drink.)

I don?t drink at all so we could meet at McDonalds or Chucky Cheeses if you like.

Lucy's 51 - good. Jumbo's - better. I'm in. I think - all depends on schedule.

Cool! Lucy's 51 sounds like a winner. I don't think they'd allow a bunch of unsupervised Muppets in a place like Jumbos! You guys sort out a time that works for you; I should be wrapped by 3 or 4 tomorrow so any time after that is good for me.

Just realized a good friend's 40th birthday party is tomorrow night - can't miss that milestone. Otherwise I'd be there.

Can somebody please come unlock the doors here at Jumbos! Ron and I drank all the booze and now the strippers are looking at us like we are food. I will try to make it wherever you guys decide if we ever get outta here.

I've got a noon call for tomorrow, so have a good time without me boys!

Shouldn't complain really, did a "mop-up" day on a pilot this week and we were headed home after 5 hours. Time to pay the piper.

So BJ let me get this straight.
You're locked in with strippers(again)
You're complaining.
Do you really want out or just more singles?

That's tonight? arrrr. I've lost track of the days. I won't be able to join you guys.

You all have fun and watch out for those vampirous waitresses. Maybe wear a neck brace or
BYOG (bring your own garlic) just in case.

Singles? The only thing our "Blessed Ladies Of Vegas" would give you is dirty look for that.
