Does anyone have any recommendations for the happy hour at 5:30pm, just prior to this meetup?

If there are no other suggestions, I'd like to take Jonas' advice and meet at El Floradito, a Cuban restaurant at the corner of Vine and Fountain.

Thanks, Jonas! I'm very much looking forward to seeing you at the meetup.

Having you there fits perfectly with the "Drupal Goes Hollywood" theme of this meetup. Please feel free to share this event announcement with your customers and colleagues.

I like the suspense of not knowing what the two special prizes are. :) I've updated our announcements to include TenTek as a sponsor of this meetup.
