Sounds good. Let me run this by NoMoMoneyBear who has access to the location we used last time and it worked out great. I think the soonest we want to do it is 9/25 to give people a chance to get their schedules together. So let me check. :-)

Hi All,

i would love to join in. just let me know when and where.

4 months ago

Hi Everybody!

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,

Elaine

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?


4 months ago
oh i'll just wait on news from NoMoMoneyBear.  Thanks Elaine.

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 ashedit@gmail.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!

We've got a terrific bunch assembled for the second-ever Great Bear Meet-Up, Los Angeles SUNDAY, SEPT 27 1-4 PM. Have you RSVP'd yet? Now's the time. Location is a very comfortable private home in Woodland Hills. We'll be talking about all things Los Angeles, what the future has in store for us, Owen, Vox Day, Crrow777, and all things BEAR. Plus, grub and drink. Here's where you can "just be yourself" for once in this town, with likeminded others. Please message me for details.

Not sure if I'm really close enough to LA, but I'm Purelylivingman or Purelylivingpapabear and we live in the Mountains of San Bernardino National Forest. We are on the The Great Bear Trail Map as Purelylivinglife Headquarters Homestead. If you awesome Bears ever want to do a weekend outing, I'll host at my house! Would love to swing out to LA for a get together... Hope to meet you all one day! Keep Crushing!

Noted, Mark.  Thank you!  How are land prices out there in the forest?
3 months ago
Howdy Mark hope all is well with you and yours!  That is kind of a long trek from San Bernardino to Woodland Hills, but I miss camping and the woods so will look into visiting you up there sometime.  I will keep in contact and will also check out the Great Bear Trail (which I am in the process of joining, just waiting for acceptance reply).  So one way or another hopefully we will meet up in the near future. Until then take care and keep crushing!

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.

Elaine

Had fun meeting everybody! Hope to do it again!

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.

Had a great time. It was awesome meeting everyone!

Hi guys! I'm still thinking about some of the conversation we enjoyed. Deep stuff.

Elaine

3 months ago

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. 

3 months ago

Hey Bears!

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.

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.

Hey Bears! I'm in OC looking forward to joining you all at the next meetup.

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).

1 month ago

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.

1 month ago
There's Basilicos in oc,no masks and no social distance.Kind of far for some but should be legit.
1 month ago
Whichever date is good for all of you.  I'll show up on Thanksgiving or after.
1 month ago
Hey bears! I'm fairly new to California, formerly NY. I'd love to join any meetups happening :)
1 month ago
I'm in OC, but I'm down to drive up to LA for a bear hang out!
1 month ago

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.

1 month ago
Yes, I have heard about Huntington being cool too! Let's do this thing! 
1 month ago

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!

Thank NoMoreMoney Bear! Unfortunately I can't make it this time either, but hopefully for the next SD meetup!
1 month ago
Hey bears! We are in OC right over the border of Huntington in Costa Mesa. Basilico’s is awesome. We’ve been there a few times and they are crushing. Huntington has a lot of people not putting up with the nonsense indeed. My boyfriend (Midnight Bear) and I (OakBear) would love to join a meetup! After this one we could possibly host next time. We’ve got a big backyard.
1 month ago

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. :-)

Elaine

1 month ago
Sweet, so Basilico's it is!  Unfortunately my business is a retail store so especially the month of December can't take off a Saturday but I'm closed on Sundays and Tuesdays.  So...for me to throw out some dates would be Sunday the 13th or 20th, or Tuesday the 8th, 15th, or even the 22nd.  So if we do the lunch service I'd say around noon so we can have enough time to discuss the gravy since they close at 3.  Time goes quick especially with a nice large group.  Hopefully one of these days will mesh up with the rest of you well.  Looking forward to it!
1 month ago
Any Sunday is great for us. Let’s do it! I know Basilico’s only takes reservations for 6 or more. Noon is great. 
1 month ago

Hey! I'm available any sunday! I'd love to meet some bears :)

1 month ago

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.

1 month ago

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?

Elaine

1 month ago
The 20th would be great for me as well. I work till noon, but can ask to leave early that day. I also have a couple other bears I know who may want to come along, so I’ll update them once we set a date! 
1 month ago

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.

1 month ago
oh wait are we moving it to the 20th? Let me know. Either way is good for me.
1 month ago
Yes, I think we’ve decided on the 20th at noon. I can make a reservation once we get a head count. It’s a small restaurant and can get crowded, so it’s best to have a reservation with a large group. We can always change the number of people, but I do think we should just get ourselves reserved so we’re not waiting :)
1 month ago
Excellent, definitely count me in.  Sunday Dec 20th at noon it is.   
1 month ago
Count me in! :)
1 month ago
Yay! Put me and two other of my bear friends down too! 
1 month ago

YAY! The 20th! I'll be there.

Loved the Sheriff's message.  Glad to be in the same county.  Loved how he pointed out the hypocrisy of withholding funds when he decried Trunq doing the same to California.

The 20th sounds good. Count me in.

Great! So far I’ve got ten. I’ll  give it a couple of days to see how many more comment to confirm. And of course we can always shift it a bit after that. If this gets much bigger we’ll be taking up the whole restaurant! Haha crushing.

Hello everyone! I'm in Arleta, SFV. So wonderful that we have this sight, let the gravy train begin!
1 month ago

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…  mitesh.damania@gmail.com

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. 

1 month ago

Do you guys think there would be enough room to add 5 more bears? 
 

1 month ago

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

1 month ago

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!

1 month ago

11:30 works for me and the other 7 bears I'm bringing.

11:30 is fine with me :)

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.

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!

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.

3 weeks ago

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.

2 weeks ago

@libertybear   I like to call them Jew killers, although I have never said that to anyone because I do wear the mask indoors.

2 weeks ago

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!

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…
