Howdy there folks! Next week we're going to be doing a meet up in downtown los angeles while people are in town visiting for Anime Expo. Though we usually meet in front of the expo, I'd rather have the meet happen somewhere with better/more affordable parking than the LA Convention center and do lunch afterwards. I'll be bringing some stuff to give away, so I hope visitors to LA and locals will be able to join me!
If there's anything you'd like to see in Little Tokyo let me know! I'd love to point out the places of interest and help you find any items from Japan you might be looking for.
The time: 11:30am is when the meet up happens! Then lunch around 12:30 or so.
The place: I'll be hanging out near the center fountain in Little Tokyo's Japanese Village Plaza. There's a bit of construction in town, so avoid First Street which is closed for Subway construction. There are several parking structures near to the Village Plaza, here's a map.
How to get to Little Tokyo:
If you're coming from Anime Expo, you can take a free shuttle (when you present your badge) from the convention center to the Doubletree by Hilton, which is only a few blocks away from the meet up spot!
If you have any questions about the meetup or how to get to Little Tokyo let me know in the thread!
