So Calif Fodorites

After reading posts about east coast fodorites getting together both here and abroad, I thought that we might do the same thing here in the LA area. How about a potluck. I can volunteer my home as being somewhat central (Long Beach) or I am opoen to anyones suggestion. We could do a barb-a-que with different people bringing there favorite european dishes that they have learned to make. My specialty is English Trifle.

Art, sounds great, hope more So. Cal's can make it. Give a date and, pending our trip overseas, We will be there (though I am not such a great cook, can I bring some kind of European coffee or plastic ware?). Thyra from Hollywood.

I'm local too, and I got some wonderful French recipes from the chef on a recent barge trip. I think it would be a kick to put faces to names. You can email me directly as dates come together.

Art,
I live in Arcadia, just a couple of freeways from LB. Keep me posted when you get a firm date, also.
Ciao,

Good response 6 so far. Any more??
It looks like some of us are traveling during September. Ann, I'll also be in Spain during the first 2 weeks.
Does anyone have a problem with October?
Early or Late?
Should be fun placing faces with names!

Art-- I daresay you'll probably get a lot more takers (after they get home from work.) Re: October--later is better for me, but I'm flex. Thanks, Diane (not Ann.)

We will be in Greece from October 5th through the 23rd, but I think that still leaves a week or 2 at the end.

Art,
We leave for Italy 23 October and get back 3 November. So, depending on what you meant by late October, that won't work for us. Given all of our travel schedules, this could be harder than arranging the trip to Europe! ;-)

Early November works for me, maybe I will be able to cook something by then.

That sounds good to me. If it is on 11/11 or later, I will probably have my photos developed and maybe even in an album.

This thread is so typically So. Californian. SET A DATE, INVITE PEOPLE AND HAVE A GOOD TIME -- THOSE WHO CAN'T MAKE IT - CAN'T MAKE IT: TOO BAD, SO SAD!
You can't please all of the people all of the time. (Especially down there).

Observer, just shut up and provide water, since you are not invited!

These really are typical southern california responses, because we care about each other down here. Everything's a happy happening.

Art,

3 things:

1) Great idea. I'm in the San Fernando Valley. Count me in.

2) Any before October 14 or after November 5th is great for me.

3) Inspite of what Observer says, I lived in Italy for 2 years and NOBODY takes longer than Italians do to plan a date.

P.S. I'll be happy to provide some cucina Italiana.
