The 1st meeting of LA Kossacks will be held on January 12th at 2PM at Casey's Irish Pub downtown.  It's close to Metro stations and there is plenty of parking a block away underneath Pershing Square.


So there my fellow Angelenos, be there or be square.

Now Casey's is NOT a foodie place.  It's a great sports bar with lots of room, lots of TVs, a great bar and an outside patio area.  I think it's best if someone wants to eat something that we order from the bar because they don't do separate checks for the 20 to 30 Kossacks that I hope show up.

Parking will be $4 to $8 depending where.  There are plenty of parking lots besides Pershing square.  

They open at 2PM and I'll be there then. But guess what?  So will be the godess we all know as navajo!  She is coming down from San Francisco for the occasion.  This alone should get some of you to decide to come.

We also have a growing list of Kossacks who have confirmed and several maybes.

Los Angeles

So come on down.  It's safe.  And you'll meet other Kossacks and conspire to take over this crazy city.

The idea is that we'll have these meetings once a month.  Now, LA is the largest metropolitan area in the world so we'll have chapters for the SF Valley, the West Side, East Los Angeles, Long Beach and even Orange County (it's part of Greater Los Angeles IMO) and East Ventura perhaps.  These chapters should also meet monthly. But once a month we all come together.

We also have an LA Kossacks group which you can join.  

And please RSVP if you are coming.


I love LA

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
