After tonight's general members meeting at Droplabs, we're participating in a large BBQ with our neighbors at Big Art Labs. Join us! We're going to be in Droplabs and by the BBQ and fire pit from 8pm-11:30pm.
The Droplabs members meeting and BBQ are both free to attend and this is a great opportunity to meet and socialize with your coworkers at Droplabs as well as the musicians, builders, welders, animators, engineers and documentarians (to name a few) that work at Big Art Labs.
Rumor has it that there will be an outdoor movie on the big screen tonight as well as rollerskating in our large parking lot. This is your chance to break your lawn chairs and rollerskates out of storage!
Bring warm clothing and some light food, sodas or beers to share with others. Be a hero and bring good stuff to throw on the grill. Feel free to bring your business cards, but this is a social occasion and you can leave your laptop at home, in the car or in your locker at Droplabs.

Droplabs is in the Mission Junction neighborhood of Los Angeles at Big Art Labs, just 1 mile down Main St. from Philippes (the first-ever venue for LA Drupal meetups!) and Union Station. We're one block west of The Brewery, the largest live-and-work artists' colony in the world.
Free parking in our large parking lot is first-come, first-served. After parking in the lot, follow the yellow signs that point to Droplabs. (If our lot is full, you can park for free on Clover St.)

Droplabs is a collaborative Drupal coworking and hackerspace in Downtown Los Angeles. Created in 2011 by LA Drupal members for the LA Drupal community, we are focused on serving the greater LA Drupal community, enriching the Drupal skills and lives of its members, and bringing joy to our Drupal practice. Our founders represent several local area businesses that have deep roots in the Drupal and open source communities.
We've been open to the public since May, 2011, and the use of our equipment and facilities, including conference room, tables and chairs, is free until our official launch.

Downtown Los Angeles is one of the most active areas for Drupal in Los Angeles and LA County. We've been meeting regularly on the 3rd Tuesday of every month since early 2010 and now schedule up to 3 regular meetups a month and occasional trainings and social gatherings. Downtown LA Drupal members also produce special events, code sprints, and the annual Drupal Design Camp LA conference
Attending Drupal events in and around Downtown Los Angeles is one of the best ways to meet and talk with other Drupaleros and we encourage you to attend as many meetings and special events as you'd like. Whether it's to find solutions to problems you've been having, sharing something you've learned or just meeting interesting like-minded people, the Downtown LA Drupal events are an essential resource for Drupal professionals and hobbyists alike.
