Okay, the party last Thurs. was fantastic!
Now we need to do it again for those down South who didn't make it up to the Bay area. And a few from up North who want to come as well!

So hit the poll and then let us know if there is a restaurant or hotel with a hall and food service that you can think of that would fit our needs.

You can vote for multiple options in the poll, like 'yes/no' AND your preferred price range.

I'm looking in to a few here in the L.A. area to see what is available.

This place is on the West Side and does have a back room that they use at times for parties and such. The food is pretty good and they have a full bar. Might work...

The Prime Rib at that site you linked to looks real good.

Very tempting.

Ill be watching this thread and see how far off this meet may be and maybe we could set up a live web cam for those that wont be able to make the meet.

Well, this place is not a restaurant - but it is just up the street from the place you mentioned (Billingsleys) and could be an after dinner hang-out. I wanted to mention it as it seemed rather fitting - for any Calguns occasion.

I was talking with Gene the other nite, and this is really easy to do - the only issue is that people have to commit to coming.

Most of us were pretty suprised to see how many people showed up to the NorCal event. Us NorCal folks are dependably flaky.

If folks were interested, this could be done in a hotel ballroom, 10-top tables and everything with a rubber-chicken dinner (maybe something more exciting)...but there would have to be a firm committment of at least 50 people at about $50 each.

If interested, I can do some further research.

LA area suggestions (I have not been to either of the 1st two, but legendary status propagates northwards):

Lawry's Prime Rib, Beverly Hills...

http://www.lawrysonline.com/theprimerib_beverlyhills_gen_info.asp

Fogo de Chao, home of the "meatsicle":
http://www.fogodechao.com/locations/beverlyHillsCA.htm



Or, Fleming's steakhouses in Woodland Hills, El Segundo or Newport Beach (there's one out in Rancho Cucamonga too...) At least some locations offer 'private dining' with rooms of 30-60 seats but I expect with Calgunner ingenuity we can pack more in a room. Expect, without wine, a prix fixe dinner of salad + meat/side + dessert to run at least $60-$70/head.

http://www.flemingssteakhouse.com/locator.asp

I can testify that the one in Palo Alto is scrumptious.

Kestryll
01-26-2008, 11:57 PM
Nice choices Bill, I looked at Flemings earlier in the day.
Lawry's looks nice but a bit pricey.
To be frank I'm a tad concerned that if things get too far above the 40-45 per person mark we might start pricing some people out of the event. That is why I set a price range question in the poll. I know several calgunners down this way are students at the many various colleges around.

Two places I saw that piqued my interest since they are also hotels were these ones:
Airtel Plaza
http://www.airtelplaza.com/default.asp
Not too bad but a bit away from Burbank airport.

Sportsman's Lodge
http://www.slhotel.com/
Good pricing on the 'Build it yourself ' buffet, close to the airport and in a decent area, Studio City. This one looks cool just for the name. ;)
Here are the buffet menus: http://www.slhotel.com/menu_dinner.pdf
Scroll down to the Studio City Buffet
My choices would be these:
Salads: Mixed Garden Green Salad, Classic Caesar Salad, Marinated Artichoke Salad, Tri-Color Rotelli Shrimp Salad and Chinese Chicken Salad.

Entree: Roasted Tri-Tip With a Cabernet Demi-Glace, Garlic and Herb Grilled Pork Loin and Grilled Soy Ginger Salmon.

Accompaniments: Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Wild and Long Grain Rice and Seasonal Fresh Vegetables.

Desserts: Assorted Pastry Display and Fruit Salad. (Dessert is kind of weak but we could probably get them to switch out for something like Triamisu and Cannolis.)

This Buffet come in around 25-30 per person.

Sportsman's Lodge....

I've attended several conferences there in the past few years - good food...good parking and the facilities can accomodate a fairly good size group.

If I get enough notice...I know I can arrange my work schedule ...so count me in.

Sportsman's Lodge....

...good parking.

I used to live in "the Valley" sort of near Sportsman's lodge. The "good parking" shouldn't be dismissed. 30 cars showing up to a place in L.A is a tough problem. The places in San Fernando Valley will likely have better/more parking on average.

I would be in for this trip, hopefully it's a few weeks down the road as now is a bit packed.

Isn't there still an Airport in the City of Burbank still?

Well I wont be able to fly into that Airport but many others could.

I am in, of course.

Kest, that steak joint in Rancho Koo Koo Munga would be a great choice.

IMHO it would be best to hold this event somewhere outside the City limits of Los Angeles.

It would certainly spare the Northern boys from the headache of flying into LAX. They could fly into the Ontario Airport and get a great room without a million people crowding them at all times.

Just a thought.

Anywho...I'm in wherever it happens.

Long Beach also has a very easy to use airport. OC/John Wayne is nice but expensive to fly into.

A weekend mabe be easiest, Socal members are so spread out and week day traffic is just so brutal.

Some place off the 210 maybe near Pasadena might be good. Gives easy access for folks from Riverside/San Berdo (since the 210 now goes all the way through), LA County and OC. Plenty of other freeway choices

I would be in provided it was on a weekend and not in Los Angeles proper.

O.C, Long Beach, San Bern, Riverside, San Diego are all cool by me.... Anywhere but LA. Just hate going anywhere near that place.

(no offense intended to any Calguns members who live in LA)

Should we send Iggy and Allison formal invitations?

+1 on the weekend. I've had dealings with several Calgunners, and they were from Ventura, Riverside, San Bernadino, San Diego, Orange County, and all over Los Angeles county. Assuming you want to start dinner at 7:00, there's no way people counld get to a central location during rush hour traffic during the week.

I'd suggest somewhere in the Anaheim area since it's in the center of SoCal. It would be pretty easy to get to for people in SD and in the IE areas. I'm sure the restaurants in west LA are nice but they are a long drive for the people in San Diego.

I also think that Anaheim probably has lots of facilities that could host an event like this because they see conventions all the time.

Well the NRA members council meets (not sure if they still do) at http://www.jtschmids.com/ in Anaheim. I believe the owner was sympatethic to the cause. They do have banquet rooms.

Maybe the NRA Members Coucil could help arrange the faciltiy?

Okay, it looks like there is some interest... :D

Sorry about dropping the ball on this, I was out of action with the flu for the last week.

We have three airports that can work for our Northern friends, Burbank, Long Beach and Orange County.

Orange County (John Wayne) Airport has JT Schmidís about 15 miles away, roughly 25-45 minutes depending on traffic. It looks very nice and has hosted NRA events before. Price range looks to be a bit in the upper range, think $60+ per person based on menu.

Long Beach Airport is fairly central, I'm not familiar with the Long Beach area and haven't seen too much in the 'suggested restaurant' dept. so I'm not sure what's around there. Any LB locals have suggestions and info?

Burbank (Bob Hope) Airport has Sportsman's Lodge about 8 miles away, roughly 15- 25 minutes depending on traffic. It also looks nice and hosts parties and events and has a hotel right on site. Price range is moderate, think $25-$45 per person.


Remember we will potentially have people coming in from as far away as San Diego and Santa Barbara and further north.

Hopefully we'll get some input from the Long Beach Calgunners so we can have a full set of options to choose from.

Burbank is very travel friendly (flown into there many times) and Sportsmen's Lodge is a great location for a gathering with semi-private dinning rooms. Bring your fishing license and poll (there is a fish pond [meaning there is a pond with fish not a pond with fish to fish] with romantic bridges to walk over with your wife/gf or conquest from the bar - lots of weddings held there = drunk bridesmaids) and use the exemption to 12025 too!.:D

And another vote for Sportsman's Lodge as it is also a hotel. It's in Studio City not in Burbank but VERY close to Burbank airport. Get a room and split it with someone so there is no driving after drinkin.

Addax
02-14-2008, 7:53 PM
My calendar is also filling up fast, so let us know..

Burbank is a good central point.

45minutes-1hour from central OC with light traffic
45minutes-1hour from Lancaster/Palmdale with no traffic
35-40 minutes from Long Beach with light traffic
40-45 minutes from Simi Valley
45 minutes-1hour from Ventura with light traffic

I would suggest hosting the event on a Saturday or Sunday (if that works for most folks?) starting around 5pm (sunset is around 5:30pm) so many won't hit traffic.

If you host it on a weeknight, or a Friday night, you can add about 30-40 minutes more to the estimated times listed above from OC, LB and Ventura.

Kestryll
02-18-2008, 3:31 PM
Okay, it's time to move forward with this.

I have counted up the posts giving opinions on where to hold it and looked at the various venues. By the look of it Burbank has a solid lead and a clear majority. Also It makes arranging things easier because i can actually get there to deal with things! ;)

So, after looking at the various venues it looks like Sportsman's Lodge in the Burbank area is it. It has the advantage of also being a hotel for those from up North as well.

To give time for people to clear their schedules and make arrangements I would suggest the weekend of March 15-16. Saturday night or Sunday night is the only real concern at that point, for travel Saturday might work better and leave the option for a Sunday morning run up the road for a shoot at Angeles as well! :D

So, chime in and let me know if that weekend works!

March 15-16 would be pretty bad. Arguments in Heller are on the 18th which means I'm flying on the 17th and that's a lot of nights away from the family.

How about the next weekend?

Oh, that's a good point, didn't think of the Heller arguments.

Okay we'll try March 22-23rd instead.

Sounds great and it's post Heller arguments so Hoffmang can debrief. Hey can you or some of the "right people" invite Gura and or Levy too?

I think Gura plans on being on a beach somewhere with a heightened BAC.

Costa Mesa Funshow?

Yes, the Crossroads show will be at Costa Mesa on March 29th and 30th. If we make it that weekend, why don't we try to find somewhere in Orange County to have the dinner? That way we could go to the gunshow on Saturday and have the dinner right afterwards. What could be better than that!

Orange County or Burbank is a good place , not in the City of Los Angeles.
March 29th or 30th is good too. I also like the idea of going to the gun show .
