I'll make it this time and have a few other bears I can invite that also wanted to come last time but were out of town.
Finally got car insurance. Let me know what's good. Anyone under 25?
lol zoomer moment .
i would love to join in. just let me know when and where.
NoMoMoneyBear is running dates by his "location mistress" and we will soon have news of the next meet-up. The last one was a raging success and this one for the end of September or early October will be the same.
I'll be in touch,
Sorry I wasn't checking these messages recently. Work has been good. Where would the meet up be? I'm in Pasadena/Alhambra area. End of September is good for me.
9/25 to 9/27, as suggested above? But where?
Okay! The Bear meet is Sunday, September 27th from 1-4pm at a lovely home location in Woodland Hills. We have only one drawback--we are limited to 10 people. Since L.A. is still locked down, this is about the best we can do. So, the first 8 people that RSVP me are in. Please email me at email@example.com and I will send along the private address.
Delicious hero sandwiches and pizza from Jersey Mike's will be served. A $10 donation toward the food cost would be much appreciated.
Look forward to seeing you!
The Second-Ever Los Angeles Bear Meet-up is NOW FULL. But you can be wait-listed!! We have men and women, food and drink, a very comfortable and safe meeting place with great parking. Some people can only come for a while, so we are allowing for rotations. THANK YOU for your response, Los Angeles Bears!!!
The 2nd ever Los Angeles bear meet-up happened today and it was wildly successful. A good time was had by all and we can't wait to get together again. Attendees included Dreamer Bear with wife and baby, Liberty Bear, Professor3Bear, Sketchy Bear, NoMoMoney Bear, HWbear and Literary Bear. We enjoyed homemade guac and chips, fresh fruit, refreshing Claw beverages, and subs from Jersey Mike's. The talk was nonstop and we went waaaaay overtime. Business cards were exchanged and collaborations were hatched.
Just a great time with good people.
It was wonderful to see you HWbear, especially since your time is split with a lot of new family responsibilities. We'll do it again, soon, I hope.
Hi guys! I'm still thinking about some of the conversation we enjoyed. Deep stuff.
Ditto on that. I had a great time too and it was really nice to connect with some "survivors", as Owen said today. It's actually funny to think of it that way. Let me know where and when the next meet up is.
I thoroughly enjoyed the meetup! Really cool meeting all of you.
It was SO nice to sit, hang, eat, and chat. Put some faces on the bear names!
Yeah, i could've easily kept it up for more hours, haha! So, yeah i'm a fan to connect anytime.

Oh, I think you had asked me @libertybear , i'll paste it here for everybody.
Link to CDC's Vaccine Excipient List:
Hey Professor Bear...that was your grabbler remix video?? If so, that was hilarious. I thought of you when I realized that a techno remix to various key statements made by this dude would be entertaining...none to be found on youtube yet, and I don't have that motivation.
i'm sure many bears have seen this one floating around. It's Yuri Bezmenov, the digital Paul Revere warning us of communism.
I signed my petition today. There happened to be one outside of a shopping center I was driving by.
Hey there Bears -
So another get together for the holidays sounds grrrrrrrrreat to me! Looking forward to it. Just let me know but we need to set up the details of the where and the when...and the WHY of things (hahaha).
I'm down for it, and excited. It's winter and we probably need an inside place. Does anybody have a spot or know a restaurant that would have us?
Hi La bears,
I think the beach is a good idea. Also Berkshire House on La Brea seems chill with groups and not covering air holes.
likewise i am willing to drive down to OC. let's figure this out. I hear that Huntington beach is not putting up with the nonsense.
Hey there everyone. Yes, let's do this thang! Pick a time and place and I'm there! And BTW angeldove bear, the San Diego Bears are meeting up this next Sunday the 6th (which I can't make). I made it to their last one for Thanksgiving and they are a great bunch of people. Perhaps you might want to check them out as well. Cheers!
I think we might try Basilico's. Their voicemail says they're getting support from around the country.
So let's set a date. Lunch is served from 11 to 3. A Saturday or Sunday would work well. No Mo Money Bear, please weigh in. :-)
Hey! I'm available any sunday! I'd love to meet some bears :)
Basilico's 12pm sunday...sounds good to me.
I should be able to make it as long as I get the stuff done tomorrow that I gotta get done.
I'm free anytime but the 13th. The 20th would work, plus the dates after that. I'm sure Basilico's will accommodate us, no matter how many show up. I'm willing to get there at 11:30 and that way we probably get a better choice of parking and seating. What do you think?
ok i got my stuff done so i'm confirmedly going to be there...Basilico's Pasta e Vino off the 405 in Costa Mesa.
See you all there.
YAY! The 20th! I'll be there.
PS everybody, the sheriff of Riverside County has a blistering message for Governor Hairdoo. Don't miss: https://www.citizenfreepress.com/breaking/riverside-county-sheriff-has-a-message-for-governor-hairdoo/
Hi @TheRealOakBear ,
Thanks so much for taking care of the reservation. This group is really growing and thriving. :-)
Great to see bears coming together in person!
Count me in for the 20th at noon @TheRealOakBear !
I just discovered a new bear-friendly site for CA news. presscalifornia.com
Check it out.
Hey @elaine-ash ,
please count me in too. plan is to carpool with @yorag-bear !
looking forward to it.
Jason / Professor3Bear
We're going to party like it's 1999! @TheRealOakBear please add Jason (Professor Bear) to the list, kay?
Sign me up for Basilico's. I have been there twice already! Btw, I am in Anaheim.and I am part of the no mask group based out of Orange County. We go speak in front of the OC Supervisors at 9am in Santa Ana every two weeks on Tuesday at 9am. Anyways, look for my post on the no mask group. We meet in Yorba Linda and Santa Ana (spilt group) on Friday and Long Beach Saturday. There is a protest at Long Beach City Hall this Saturday dec 12 noon to open up Long Beach. We will go eat at an open restaurant. I will then go attend the no mask meetup in Long Beach 4pm to 7pm. There will be an open up rally at the Huntington Beach pier 2pm to 5 pm… firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi all new bears in the group! Looking forward to meeting you in person on the 20th!
Hey @libertybear just seeing your post from a couple months ago. Yes, i claim responsibility for the Grabbler remix and the most recent Metal version, haha! Glad you liked.
Do you guys think there would be enough room to add 5 more bears?
Hey @angeldove-bear ! We can try! I just called and he said if we’re bring the whole crew that they are going to bring in an extra person in to work. So let me know… so I can let them know. Haha
Okay everyone! We are all set for noon on Sunday. However! They said it would be better if we arrive at 11:30 since they open at 11 and have a party of 9 coming in at 1, since they are a smaller restaurant. Can everyone please comment below “11:30” if it works for you? otherwise comment “noon” if you can’t make 11:30. Thank you!
11:30 works for me and the other 7 bears I'm bringing.
11:30 is fine with me :)
Yeah 11:30 works.
11:30 works great.
the more, the bearier.
11:30 sounds good.
Please add me to the reservation! 11:30 works.
Please confirm. Thanks
Hey everyone! Thank you for responding. I have us down for 11:30am on Sunday, 12/20 for 15-20 people at Basilico’s Pasta E Vino in Huntington Beach. I did this because so many people have responded but not everyone confirmed 11:30. See you soon! Can’t wait to meet everyone.
I'll be there with victory bear!
Hey everyone! We currently have 25 people on the reservation. If you can’t make it for any reason please let me know ASAP because they are a small restaurant and will be squeezing us in. I know there are a few more bears that were interested in coming, but we can’t fit them at this time. So let me know if you can’t come so I can tell them they can come. Thank you!
hey guys have fun! sorry i couldn't make it this time. New baby & family has been fulltime the past 2 months!
Hi everyone! FYI the reservation is under my name “Oaklee”
Hi all! We migrated to Estancia Park, in Costa Mesa (Mesa Verde). We’re on the top portion of the park. Placentia and Adams.
And what a party it was! TWENTY-FIVE to THIRTY bears all showed up to Basilico's and took over the place. TheRealOakBear did a fantastic job of turning people out and we are all so grateful to her! There was no despair, only hope and real stories. The bar was full (actually, we swamped the place) and people who just happened to be there also turned out to be very interested in learning more about Bears. NoMoMoneyBear is our natural host with the most, and made everyone feel welcome. Our resident musical genius Professor3Bear (according to Owen) showed up and made the rounds. So much creative talent among the Bears! I hit the wall in terms of energy and had to leave after a few hours, but the party continued and went on to the park. People are already asking about the next gathering. THANK YOU everybody who showed up and made the third gathering of the Los Angeles Bears GREAT.
Thank you so much to TheRealOakBear, Elaine, and of course every single bad-ass bear that showed up yesterday with love and logos in their heart. That was a special day to be remembered. So lets hear it for the solstice and conjunction today, keep positive and happy everyone, this has been the best apocalypse ever!
yeah, was really awesome! a taste of the “real world”. wish i could have met and spoke with more of you. many of you are so inspiring and crushing! thank you all.
having to deal with idiocracy here in LA makes me wonder if I stepped through a time portal or something when I cross from LA to the OC…I can't wait to have another meetup.
and I was thinking…the people who whisper like demons at me about masks…they are, in the truest sense of the word, fearmongerers. I've been trying to come up with a proper response to their cackling and hissing…and i think that just pointing at them and saying “fearmongerer” is the right word to make them short circuit in their brains for at least, like 5 seconds...at least. Any thoughts?
oh and Merry Christmas to the LA Bears!
Hey there Liberty Bear! I say “It's a hoax. There's a 99.9% survival rate. It's time to live your life." That leaves them so confused they're basically incapacitated as I walk to my car.
@libertybear I like to call them Jew killers, although I have never said that to anyone because I do wear the mask indoors.
Hey bears, just wanted to stop by and say hey! was curious if we have a new meet up planned/scheduled. Dave and i would love to be a part of it! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and i hope you 2021 brings you all so much love happiness and hope! til we meet up again!
NoMoMoneyBear is getting date together and will announce soon! :-)
Howdy LA Bears; I've neglected this sweet Bearvibe app and haven't seen a thing since shortly after the HB meetup (that was great, btw). I look forward to the next gathering and hope 2021 has been treating you all well so far…
