    Question Vodka-Tasting Party in LA?
    I will be in LA between 11 and 15 April 2006. Anyone for a vodka-tasting, Geno-meeting party? We could do it at one of the LA Russian restaurants. I'm sure it'd be fun...

    Lemme know so that I could plan my trip accordingly.

    Just checked the restaurant listings online, and found out that there are close to 50 (fifty!!) Russian restaurants in LA and its vicinity... Whew......

    There are several in the San Fernando Valley (which runs from Burbank/Studio City on the east out to Woodland Hills/Calabasas on the west), so I vote for that end of town.

    The restaurants are more than likely along Ventura Blvd., easily accessible right off the 101 Freeway.

    There's a very good Russian Restaurant in Sherman Oaks. Well, it's good to people I know ... we'll let Geno tell us if it's REALLY good. :-) I'll find out the name and location but I suspect it's on Ventura Blvd.

    Calabasas sounds good. That is going to be the vicinity I'll be staying in.

    So, M**** (aka "webworker), are you in?!

    Passover is right there in the middle of those dates, and my congregation has a seder (a fantastic one), which for the past two years has been at the Calabasas Inn. I'll call the pastor and find out which day it'll be on and if there's no time conflict, I'm in.

    ALL: you do not HAVE to "taste vodka" at this event! You may taste borscht or pelmeni, or whatever you want... Seriously. Don't feel like it's "vodka only" thing. It actually is not at all. It's about meeting up and tasting (literally and figuratively speaking) the Russian culture and the Russian legacy!

    Russian Night is in Sherman Oaks, but it's on Moorpark (13300 block should be near Fulton). That's pretty centralized and about 4 minutes from the freeway.

    ALL: you do not HAVE to "taste vodka" at this event!
    I'd rather taste food. I love "family style" dining, where there are several dishes and everyone gets a bit of each.

    Exactly! After all, I'm not planning on coming again to Los Angeles for at least a year after that...

    As a non-drinker I was planning to stay away. But if it's more about meeting and eating I guess I'm in.

    If I have a vote, I'd prefer Thursday the 13th.

    Can you delay this party until May? Why you may ask?
    Because in May I will be in LA from the 9th - 13th but it can't be the 11th or 12th as I will be in Seattle

    LA is about 12 hour non-stop flight from Moscow. I am not going there often. In fact, this will be my first time on the West Coast. April works out well for me, as I will be in Miami for Andy's seminar and then fly to LA on the 11th...

    So we have three people coming already (Rexanne, Donna and myself). Still waiting Webworker. Donna, bring your egg!! I know such things look a bit different "in person". Would love to see it myself.

    Anyone else joining?

    I'm free on the 13th from about 1PM on. Are we talking about lunch, dinner, or what?

    Anybody else coming? Just me and my egg, Rexanne, and Geno?

    Rexanne, if you can pick out a place not too far from you I'll pick you up.

    I'll bring a friend with me. Well, she will actually drive me to the place. Since we do not have many ppl coming, maybe I'll invite her husband to come with us too. Feel free to bring a friend or a spouse with you. It'd be more fun then.

    Thanks Donna, very much appreciated! :-)

    Do we have a place? Web Worker, were you going to name the place or maybe you already did. I'll go back through the thread and read. :-) A little dingy here ...

    I might be able to make it with my gf. Next week is kind of up in the air, but if we're in the area we'd love to meet up with you guys! Th, Fri or Sat might work. I know for sure we'll be in the area on Saturday evening, but we're pretty flexible.
