[edited] Thanks for the date

[edited] Thanks for the date fix. I need to find a way to make it down for one of these sometime.

You *should* make it down sometime. ;-)

You should make down sometime. ;-) and yes, the 1/21 "thursday" date was confusing, think it was a typo and should have been 1/31.

Note, for the next two months (at least) the Long Beach meetup will be on the last Thursday of the Month (1/31 $ 2/28). Also, the venue is one block away from the downtown metro station in Long Beach.

I don't know if I can make it to the meetup (earliest I get access to a car is after 7:30) but I might be able to make it for the pub crawl after :)

Awesome, been a while.

I don't have access to a car this evening so I won't be able to make it out tonight. Sorry guys! :(

Lightning Talk - Theme Function Specificity

If there's some time, I've got about a 5ish minute talk/walk-through about overriding theme functions in specific contexts (not the module, just in general).

What was the name of that
