My typical description of LA Friday Coffee is “coffee and casual conversation between work and dinner”, but what exactly gets discussed. LA Friday Coffee member Peej gives us this great re-cap of our last meetup. Wouldn’t you like to get in on the conversation? Join us for our next LA Friday Coffee on January 2, 2009. More details to come!

But that’s not all!

Admiring a new venue while realizing that Google Maps is still a work in progress

Extolling the virtues of public transit (where we can find them)

Brandishing not only Dr. Who, but the Sarah Jane Adventures

Discovering why the iPhone is cool (and may even be cooler if you can get the educational discount), and other planned-obsolescence hacks in the age of 3G

Learning of Things to Do in Sicily, which include

Driving both Ferraris and Fiats (for entirely different purposes)

Avoiding the train system unless you have a lot of time to burn

Eschewing the term “espresso”: “Un caffe, per favore!”

Hanging out with family and other new best friends

Reconfiguring your relationship with food

and finally understanding why LA urban planners don’t get it

AND kvetching over grades, teaching *and* learning (special end-of-term edition), with a sidebar on how aspiring wireless geeks still manage to either print out reams of assignments, or bring home stacks of student papers

I am a bit under the weather this week, so I think our next LA Friday Coffee will happen on January 2, 2009.

Have the Happiest of Holidays, A Merry Christmas and a Great New Year!

LA Friday Coffee at Aroma Coffee and TeaThis week’s LA Friday Coffee brings us back the Valley along with an extra special twist…

Our Friends, Bruce and Dave of Spyder Blue are performing at Cafe Bellissimo in Woodland Hills at 9 pm Friday, so I am moving back our usual 630 pm start time to 8 pm so you can stop by, have a little coffee and conversation and then catch a great set with this rhythm and blues and country band. You’ll find all the details in Spyder Blue’s message below

Join us for this jumping evening of java and jams out here in the Valley!

Hey, Bandwagon,

As Thanksgiving fades in the rear view mirror, keep your eyes peeled for Cafe Bellissimo – just up ahead. Spyder Blue will be there having a good ol’ time this Friday, December 5th. With holiday madness settling in, you’ll need a drink or two and some live musical salvation by then. The boys promise to send you home healed.

See you there!
